Since it is the British Sausage Week this week we have made our own sausage rolls for the children’s lunch boxes. I use the simple but delicious recipe from Fay Ripley’s cook book ‘Fay’s Family Food’. I like the idea of making my own as I can then get really good quality sausages from my local butcher and the kids love to give me a helping hand making them..

Lunch time at school is a chance for our children to have a break, socialise and recharge, but hazards like junk food, toxic food containers and bacteria can make the lunch box and its content unsafe for children. Recent research shows that 82% of lunchboxes contain foods high in saturated fat, salt and sugar. Many food containers and drink bottles used by children in British schools contain Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical that has been banned in several countries due to health risks. Another potential danger with lunch boxes is the bacteria that can grow in food when it is left unrefrigerated for extended period of times. However, these ‘dangers’ can easily be avoided by making a few changes to how we pack our children’s lunches.

We all do it; some people do it every day whereas others do it less frequently - packing and transporting food and drinks that is. We take lunch to school and work, store leftovers in the fridge, take drinks for our journey or to the gym, in the summer he have picnics etc etc. For this reason there is a wide range of food containers and drinks bottles on the market and perhaps even in your cupboards. The most common products are made of plastic but in this article we are looking closer at stainless steel food containers and bottles and why those may be better for us, our food and the environment.
