Liven up their Lunchbox!

School's back across Australia, and we usually hit the ground running with fresh enthusiasm and zest for the new year after a long summer break. Most parents are (quietly) happy to see their kids head off to the classroom and reinstate the routine that's been missing since late December. We all start off with the best of intentions when packing our little (& big) one's lunchboxes, every morsel loving packed into a plethora of compartments, and separated in today's bento-box-style containers. But let's be honest, the weeks become long and some days the cupboard is bare and a little bit of imagination will go a long way in making lunch look appetising.

Enter stage left, our Koala Sandwich Cutter - the device that gets kids to eat their lunch! This little koala bread cutter makes sandwiches fun again and irresistible to the fussiest eater. Designed to get the most out of your sandwich, and reduce any wastage, these cutters are easy to use and as with all e3 Products, they are BPA free, mercury free and of course kid friendly (they might even prepare their own lunch!). 

When the cupboard is all but bare, reach for the ever trusty Koala Bee Eucalyptus Honey and you've got your sandwich contents sorted. Guaranteed to be eaten, even the crusts ;) And, you know your kids are eating a 100% organic pure Australian product that contains probiotics for gut health, and no artificial colours, preservatives or flavours. Coughs and colds circulating at school? Give the kids a teaspoon of honey to reduce sore throats and ease a cough. Read more about how honey offers increased antioxidant levels on our website. Did you know we donate 5% of the sale of this honey to Save The Bees and the Koala Foundation? It's a win, win. 

Kids won't eat sandwiches? Try offering them soba noodles, sushi or leftover fried rice (older kids can even manage a hot thermos with chicken noodle soup or laksa). Make it irresistible and a novelty by adding a set of our Kangaroo or Koala Chopsticks! Their meals are sure to taste better when they're having this much fun at lunch time! 

Our Australian Egg & Pancake Shapes are another great idea to present food in a kid-friendly way. Try making up a batch of pikelets on Sunday, ready for school lunches (they freeze well too!) or whip up funny, yummy eggs on toast in koala and kangaroo shapes for a quick, simple dinner on the days you all get home late.. Weekends are made for Buttermilk Pancakes (these ones from My Beach Kitchen are amazing), and the kids (and kids at heart) will love them. An easy to use handle makes picking these shapes up a breeze. These make a great gift idea for busy families.

We hope you've enjoyed reading our tips for lunchbox fun, stay strong in Term 1 :)

Why Koala Bee Honey?

Why Koala Bee Honey?

Did you know that Koala’s eat, sleep and breed in eucalyptus trees? Eucalyptus trees are vitally important to the distribution, abundance and wellbeing of contemporary Koala populations, and this is also where bees collect the pollen and in turn pollinate the flowers to bring you delicious honey and good health. At e3, we make Products With Passion, and none moreso than this.. Koala Bee Honey is harvested from Koala habitats in the eucalyptus forests of Victoria, and is now available to you to enjoy daily. 

Bees are barometers of the health of our world - we are partnering with organisations to help save the bees.

What is most disturbing is that Koalas and Bees are both threatened in Australia. We want to help save our planet, so we have partnered with and donate 5% OF THE SALE OF THIS HONEY to Save the Bees and the Australian Koala Foundation. Please visit these links to learn more, and see what you can do to improve their plight and secure the future of these animals and, of course, honey.

Did you know that Eucalyptus Honey has Probiotic Qualities?

Did you know that Eucalyptus Honey has Probiotic Qualities?

Australian eucalyptus honey has probiotic qualities, and with regular consumption can improve gut health by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria in the large intestine. Honey is also beneficial for colon issues and IBS. This is done through the naturally occurring active ingredient, Oligosaccaride. 

It also suppresses hay fever, sinus allergies and improves disease resistance through increased antioxidant levels. Swallow a teaspoon of honey to reduce sore throats and ease a cough. You can read more about this research by clicking here
