In total we have over 15 different colours and patterns to choose from so everyone in the family can choose a design that suits them.

Quinoa salad with hummus rolls

For some half-term inspiration, here is one of our favourite healthy lunch box recipes in our new rectangular lunch box.


    • A handful of salad leaves
    • 70g cooked quinoa
    • Seasoning - salt, pepper and garlic granules
    • 6 tomatoes
    • Mint leaves chopped
    • Olive oil
    • 3 tbsp hummus 
    • 2 tbsp of salsa
    • ¼ of an avocado
    • A handful of rocket 
    • 1 tortilla roll


    1. To make up the quinoa, cook according to the packet's instructions. Season with salt, pepper, garlic and chopped mint leaves. 
    2. Next add a layer of salad leaves to your small food jar, layer the quinoa on top and then add your 3 chopped tomatoes and drizzle with olive oil.
    3. Lay out your wrap and add a layer of hummus so it covers the entire wrap.
    4. Next dollop your salsa in a line across the middle of your wrap.
    5. Chop up your avocado, 3 tomatoes and layer them on your wrap with your rocket.
    6. Roll up your wrap and then cut into smaller bites.

Cutlery sets

Portable cutlery sets

An often overlooked essential is a portable cutlery set. Citron cutlery sets come in a silicone case for convenience and for hygiene reasons. During half-term you're often on the move, whether picnicking in the parks or exploring nature trails, having utensils readily available reduces your reliability on single-use cutlery sets. This sustainable choice aligns with environmental consciousness, teaching children the importance of responsible consumption.

Water bottle

Insulated water bottles

Staying hydrated is crucial for kids as it supports their overall health and vitality. Whether they are busy on a day out, relaxing at home or travelling abroad, a water bottle is a half-term must. Proper hydration ensures optimal cognitive function, physical performance and temperature regulation. With your child's active lifestyle, they will lose fluids more rapidly, emphasising the need for frequent water intakes. Sometimes the best way to encourage your child to drink more, is with a stylish water bottle - that’s where we come in. This year we have launched even more colours and designs that we know you will love, and they can all be found on our website. All of our bottles will keep your water cold for up to 24 hours, or warm for up to 12 hours and are all made from stainless steel, an eco-friendly material.

The team hopes you and your family had a lovely break filled with adventures and unforgettable memories.
