Do you remember the BPA scare of 2008? I had just given birth to my second son and was exclusively bottle feeding (not without many failed attempts to breastfeed.) I was relieved to still have all the bottles from when my first son used them and happy they were still in good working order. I remember the exact moment I heard of the BPA scare. I was sitting on the couch feeding my son (from a bottle) and a news report came on TV. Now this was before social media was big and i was interested to hear the news on which baby bottles were best. Then I saw the bottle I was using at that moment flashed across the screen with a warning “it may contain BPA”.
After that moment I began to reexamine the plastic containers in my life. From bottles to bowls to storage container, the threats of harmful chemicals, like BPA, seemed to lurked everywhere. I adjusted our bottle to glass, read plastic containers more carefully and stuck to glass and ceramic bowls when storing food. That is fine when I’m at home, but on the go and even more important, with my children on the go, glass and ceramic is not a logical decision.
With three kids in school full time this back to school season, I need containers for school lunches. The containers must be light for carrying back and forth to school and seal with an airtight seal that allow juices to spill all over the rest of their lunch. This school season, StenLock is is finally available in Canada! It is a sleek, light weight and eco-friendly container that is a must-have for every back-to-school backpack. StenLock containers are available in a slew of sizes , colours and configurations.

- StenLock is 100% BPA Free
- StenLock does not retain odours and will keep food fresh
- StenLock is stain resistant – containers will not change colour
- StenLock is leak-proof – airtight seal
- StenLock is easy to clean thoroughly
- StenLock is very light
- StenLock is not easily broken
My kids loved the futuristic look of these stainless steel containers. They truly were light weight and very easy to use. After DD3 sealed a container filled with liquid, I put it to the test but turning it upside. I’m happy to report that not a drop came out. The wide range of colours, sizes and shapes allow you to store left overs, sandwiches and any other school snack your child could possibly want. With easy to use snaps and the leak proof seal, this Mom is happy that lunch bags will not come home an ewwy gooey mess.
