Our favorites: Back to School Roundup

We are always on the look out for great products that make parenthood and childhood more easy, fun, and all around fantastic. Here are a few of the things we love to have with us when we are getting all our back to school gear in order.
back to school essentials
1. We usually don't leave the house without our kids' SIGG water bottles. Keeping our kids hydrated is so important, especially because they are constantly on the go. The SIGG is great because it's the perfect size for little hands, and can easily fit into a backpack or your purse. Parents will love the fact that it doesn't leak. Trust me, I've tried a few water bottles, and this one never leaks! You can purchase one here.

2. School time brings an onslaught of germs, and while we love that they build our children's immune systems, we don't love when they get sick. Hyperbiotics PRO-kids is such a good immune support. It is a little tiny pearl that time releases the pro-biotics so that they actually make it to the gut and help support their digestion and immune system. We love them and our kids love them too. Win win. You can find them on Amazon or here: https://www.hyperbiotics.com/products/pro-kids

3. When packing a lunch, the Yumbox lunchbox is our go-to. What do we love about it? I don't know where to start. The Yumbox has a plastic insert that has smaller compartments to separate your food. You can choose from a variety of inserts, and when you're done, it can go straight into the dishwasher. Our favorite insert separates the different compartments into food groups (they are labeled, with designated places for grains, dairy, veggies, etc.) This is a great way to make sure you have all your food groups covered when trying to pack a healthy meal for your kids. You can purchase the Yumbox here: https://www.yumboxlunch.com/

4. Our favorite backpack is the Kanken Mini by Fjallraven. The mini is the perfect size for little ones, and it's not awkward at all to carry. It makes a great bag to tote their little things when not in school, and I've even used it on occasion myself! They come in a wide variety of fun colors, which my kids especially love! It can be found here: http://www.fjallraven.us/products/kanken-mini-1-backpack?variant=16660098757

5. Is it me or does chapstick always get lost in any bag it enters? That's why we love EOS Smooth Spheres. Hands can easily find it when they're looking for it in their backpack or you're looking for it in your purse. Plus the flavors smell so good you'll want to eat it (I'm not recommending that...). They can be found at any grocery store or here: https://evolutionofsmooth.com/lip-balm/smooth-spheres.html 

6. Last, but certainly not least, are our trusty Wink Naturals Sleep Melts and PureSleep + Breath Chest rub! They help our kids to calm down and relax the night-before-school-starts and can't-go-to-sleep jitters as well as helping them get back on a good sleep schedule so that they can enjoy school and feel rested and ready to conquer the days ahead. You can purchase them here.

What are some of your favorite products for back to school?
