Have you discovered EatWell-UK yet? If you’re looking for something a bit different to serve, shape or store your little one’s lunch and snacks then you need to pop over and check them out. Stocking a wide range of goodies from Yumbox lunch boxes to LunchPunch sandwich cutters from a more exciting packed lunch to Montii water bottles in a variety of sizes or beautiful planners to help you organise your family life.
My children are all on school dinners so much as I love all the exciting bits and bobs for packed lunches, they aren’t things which would get much use in our household at the moment. The Montii water bottles on the other hand? I knew they would be a hit for us an promptly ordered five new ones plus extra sports caps for Dave & I.
The Montii Original is a generous 600ml capacity bottle which keeps liquid cold for up to 24 hours and liquid hot for up to 12 hours – making it perfect for adventures (or just day to day life) at any time of year. The wide mouth opening makes it easy to add ice cubes to keep your drink extra cold (which during the summer we’ve just had would have been a lifesaver – my current stainless bottle doesn’t have a wide enough neck for adding ice unfortunately so I know what a bonus this will be when it comes to using my Montii in the warmer weather next year). Although the Montii Original comes with a stylish screw top bamboo lid (with a silicone seal), you can buy an additional sports cap which I thought would be really useful for Dave and I depending on whether our bottles were filled with ice cold water or hot chocolate / strong coffee! Both lids have a handle making them easy to carry around with you – which is of course really important as we all need reducing our plastic consumption to be as easy and convenient as possible.
As well as a Montii Original each for Dave and I, I bought three Mini Montiis for the kids. I’m rather hoping that as well as being kinder to the environment, these Mini Montiis will be kind on my pocket too as they should mean less money spent on drinks when we are out and about! The Mini Montii has all the same features as the Montii Original bar his smaller size – 350ml (which is just bigger than your average can of pop) and an easy-sip sports lid to avoid spillages. This does mean they shouldn’t be used with hot drinks for safety.
We love the bright colours and hard wearing, scratch & dent resistant finish on our new Montii bottles and I know they are going to be well used for years to come. (If you pop on over to EatWell-Uk now you’ll find all of our new bottles in the sale with 25% off!)
