Concentrate Fruit Friendly Lunch Box

Concentrate Fruit Friendly Lunch BoxIt’s back to school and if you have kids you’ll want this brand new ingenious Fruit Friendly Lunch Box ($15 USD) from Concentrate. The lunch box has been specially designed to hold fruit while protecting it from bruising or overheating, and we think thats a great way to make sure fruit is enjoyed at its best. A unique color changing thermo-spot on the box indicates when food has overheated, plus it comes with 2 plastic pots for holding grapes, nuts or diced fruits. And since its dishwasher safe, it makes cleanup after-school a breeze.
