I thought, as little one will get older the backpack will get lighter but I have yet to witness this. Carrying snacks around in small pots fills up half the bag. Until I spotted this great Goodbyn lunchbox. With 5 different compartments and complete with a water bottle. Made with FDA-approved materials and 100% recyclable, and with stickers to custom your lunchbox. Perfect solution and great colours too, available here.
