Lunchtime With GLAD and Disney: Kid ApprovedTuesday, September 08, 2015
Welcome back to school, the joyous season of packing lunches, filling out forms, and helping with homework. You know, the exciting time when we get to fuss with our kids about what snacks to pack and what to wear. You rush them here and there, make sure they're packed and ready for school, go to work, and rush back home to make dinner, fill out more forms and tackle more homework. And then the kids get to run outside and play whilst mom and dad clean up in the kitchen and tend to laundry. Every. Single. Night. For once, it would be great to start off the day in perfect harmony, where beds are magically made, teeth brushed, lunches prepared and there's a coffee in mommy's hand, butterflies and fairies fluttering in the background. What? Fairies don't really exist? Well, I've got the next best thing: GLAD Snack and Sandwich Zipper Bags sprinkled with Disney magic!
These new GLAD Zipper Bags, available for a limited time, are printed with characters from your child's favourite Disney films and are a wonderful solution to boost the fun factor of your child's lunchbox. There are four unique bag designs inside each box featuring favourite characters such as Elsa, Olaf, Woody, Lighting McQueen and Francesco Bernoulli. Luckily, our family received a bunch of GLAD Bags with Disney characters to help ease us back into the school routine and inspire my kids to look forward to lunchtime. I interviewed them both to share their thoughts on these Disney-themed zipper bags.
Which character was your favourite?
Paolo: I really like Lightening McQueen.
Madeleine: My favourite is Mater. As in tuh-mater. Without the "tuh".
Did your friends love your new bags?
Paolo: Yes, they thought they were cool.
Madeleine: None of my friends had seen them before. They really liked the one with Olaf.
How did Disney-themed bags make lunch more fun?
Paolo: I love cars so it was fun to have them [Cars-themed bags] in my lunch.
Madeleine: The [Cars-themed bags] bags reminded me of the first Cars movie, which I liked. It's probably my favourite PIXAR movie.
What would your favourite Disney character have in their lunchbox?
Paolo: I don't know. Maybe a hamburger? (Guess what we had for dinner tonight.)
Madeleine: Mater would probably want pistacchio-flavoured ice cream. (And a lunchbox with a built-in freezer, methinks.)
GLAD Disney-themed Zipper Snack and Sandwich Bags are available at all major retailers and grocery stores for $2.49-$3.49. And by the way, for those who live in Toronto, you can now recycle resealable lunch bags as of June 1, 2015. You can find an updated list of new plastic that is now accepted in the blue bin on toronto.ca.
