Dd2 is off to kinder this year after her third birthday. I need to organise lunch boxes and drink bottles for her.
She currently uses a sigg bottle but she can't turn it on and off herself. She needs a lunchbox for morning tea and a separate one for lunch.

Can anyone recommend a water bottle that is easy to open herself and doesn't leak? I'm loooong at the thermos and contigo ones atm.

Lunchbox recommendations? She can open the long Tupperware one but it is a bit big when she has to take two separate boxes. She can't open the little decor ones.
I would prefer not to use a lunch bag.

Any thoughts appreciated!

We use the small Tupperware sandwich keepers. Square ones.

Sistema bottles.

I bought my DD a Thermos double walled drink bottle for 3yo kinder (funtainer?)

It is still going strong, and she is about to go into grade 2.  Looks a bit battered, but still one of the best value $20 I think I have ever spent on her.

I also splashed out and got a planetbox rover for her lunch box for school, it is about to go into its 3rd year.

I'm the same as Isobella. I use the Tupperware sandwich keepers and a variety of little nude foos or door containers in an insulated lunch bag.  The sistema bottles are cheap, come in a range of sizes and never leak. You can get them everywhere .. Supermarkets, department stores etc.

DD4 uses a mini nudie food mover and a contigo insulated drink bottle. She finds both easy to open and use.

My dd has a kids sized drink bottle (straw type) from Kathmandu, it's a year old now and still in great condition. Doesn't leak when closed.

The contigo drink bottle is great. My 2yr old DD has one. It has a button to open up the straw and then its easy to close. My DD can use it by herself. I got it from House. Doesnt leak and is pretty durable
