As mom to four kids…and as a mom who wakes up every morning to the task of packing four lunches, I’m always enamored by the latest ingenuity in promotional lunch box accessories. Anything to make packing lunches in my morning fog a little easier and a little faster is very enticing. Our lunch box accessories get plenty of action around here, as I’m sure they do in households across the country. Not only do I catch frequent glimpses of the logos screen printed on our sandwich keepers, so do my kids. And their friends. And their teachers. And the lunch staff. If any of those people are in your target market, printing on some lunch box accessories is a terrific way to spend some marketing bucks.
Check out some of the newest I’m eager to add to our cabinet devoted to packing up lunches.
Cool Gear Snack to Go Kits
Back in the day, there was no snack time at school. Now kids are encouraged to bring healthy snacks to tide them over until lunch time. Fresh fruit or veggies always fares better with an ice pack of some sort, and I love that the ice pack is built right into the lid of these snack-sized containers. Way less bulk than your traditional ice pack, leaving plenty of room for other important food stuffs. Like the sandwich.
Snack and Dip Containers
This 19 oz container also includes a freezer gel lid. What’s more, it includes a separate dip container that secures directly into that freezer gel lid. My kids happen to turn up their noses at healthy snacks like carrots unless there’s ranch dressing readily available. My boys would sooner starve than eat a carrot without the dip. This is lunch box perfection.
Cereal to Go Kits
Speaking of snacks, my crew happens to adore cereal, even many of the kinds there are not made primarily of corn syrup and marshmallows. This product would be an easy way to pack up some snack time cereal.
Apple Saver Containers
A lot of times, my kids return food in their lunch boxes. Carrots sans ranch are guaranteed to come home unscathed. An apple that’s sustained significant bruising in lunch box transport is also a sure thing. This is why I was immediately intrigued by these apply saver containers. These promotional products would cut back on apple trauma. Kids who use this product may just eat more apples. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Lunch boxes promotional accessories are simply an effective, affordable way to make regular impressions. How many times a week do you eat lunch? Put your marketing dollars to work for you when you invest in any of these terrific products.

I love that these are environmentally friendly and that I don’t spend money on sandwich bags anymore.

These lunch box containers are available for customization at Show Your Logo.
My kids tote their personalized lunch boxes to school each and every day. With four kids in our household, buying four school lunches per day would add up fast. We’re talking upwards of $160 a month, which is almost equivalent to the monthly payment on my first car. I was raised in a frugal household, and old habits are hard to break. Packing their school lunches is definitely a more economically-sound choice. Another bonus: packing my kids’ lunches every morning ensures I know what they’re eating. I truly believe I can set the bar for a lifetime of healthy eating habits by showing them what we should all be eating. I can show them by packing their lunches with fun, fresh, healthy food choices.
Having taught middle school for several years before the birth of my triplet boys, I’ve witnessed the eating habits of kids with lunch money to spend. If those kids had money burning a hole in their pockets, they were bound to spend it on a mountain of French fries, a tower of Nachos steaming with orange “cheese,” and chocolate chip cookies the size of their palms. It’s no wonder we have an ongoing childhood obesity epidemic in this country! We can all help kids circumvent the temptation served up in school lunch lines by packing healthy food into affordable lunch totes.
Promotional lunch boxes are a popular item in our line of business. Schools and parent/teacher organizations often print lunch boxes with their school name and school mascot. Businesses will often choose to give away custom lunch boxes as a back-to-school promotion. Why not take this marketing strategy a step further? Why not commit your brand to the concept of healthy eating and healthy living for kids? Include some recipes with colorful photos to inspire parents and kids to make healthy eating a priority in their lives.
As a mom, I rely on blogs, Pinterest (check out Show Your Logo’s Pinterest Board titled Lunch Box Love), and some favorite lunch box themed books for help generating fresh ideas for fun, visually appealing, and healthy lunches for my kids. Whether you’re a mom on the PTO planning the school picnic or a corporate buyer strategizing your back-to-school promotion, we all want what’s best for kids. Nurture healthy eating habits when you give away promotional lunch boxes.
As for my kids? They unanimously adore DIY lunchables. We pack whole grain crackers, low-fat cheese, sliced turkey breast, baby carrots, and sliced strawberries and blueberries into a divided container at least once a week. Yes, it takes more effort to pack their lunches than to send them off to school with some cash, but I take great satisfaction in knowing they’re not eating that cringe-worthy, orange nacho “cheese” every day.
An investment in custom lunch boxes and printed lunch box accessories is clearly a healthy marketing choice.
