Less battle at lunch time:Funky lunch boxes to help food to go down better
It's the first day of the new school year. Once class starts, you turn around to see your friend carrying a new pencil case, one of the cool new ones that has your favourite TV show characters on the front in bright colours.
All the other children immediately look over, and ‘ooh' and ‘aah' over it, as usual. Feeling a slight pang of the green monster of envy creeping over you, you immediately feel the need to have it.
This situation is a classic, and has happened to all of us, where we want to follow the latest ‘cool trends'.
We have long-ago abandoned the steel rack lunch boxes and standard brown and black school bags that our parents cherished when they were young.
Receiving a chic, designer tote, a colourful water bottle, a lunch bag with the latest patterns, or a multi-hued, multi-pocketed pencil case from your parents and relatives can really brighten your whole day.
Make it cool
With many choices available on the market, and a set of indulging parents by your side, you are ready to equip yourself with these smart items for a new school year.
All these items, though, have bigger advantages besides the fact that you will be able to flaunt them in front of your friends and classmates.
You can use these products to express your own individuality and show your friends your style, as well as keeping Mummy's worries at bay, since your unique gear will not be mistaken and taken away by some other child.
So, what's your style? Is it cool? Chic? Cute? Or just plain crazy?
A new flamboyant pencil case can really inspire you to do some of your best writing work for school. One look at those new erasers, pens and pencils, and your creative juices will start flowing like they never have before, with many ideas ablaze.
Along with school work, with your favourite cartoon characters sitting atop your lunch box, lunch time can take on a whole new dimension as well.
The rotis and rice that you've been having for lunch since kindergarten now seem to taste a lot better, helping you finish your lunch and avoid Mummy's scolding!
With a funky new water bottle and bright backpack, you will feel motivated to climb aboard that bus and face school with all its challenges everyday.
