How to Pack Healthy Drinks for School

Drink in the Box Refillable Drink Box

Do you feel limited by the drinks you can pack in your child’s lunch box like me? I would love to send fruit-infused water, home-made lemonade, or milk to school for my kids instead of the limited options of per-packaged drinks.

For my family, our choices are even more limited since my kids can’t easily pack a juice box to school because of the high amounts of sugar. Until now, I packed them a bottle of water with lunch.

Now, I have options to pack healthy drinks for school lunches with Drink in the Box.

How to Pack Healthy Drinks with Drink in the Box

I don’t know why nobody thought of this before but the innovative people at Drink in the Box have designed a boxy-shaped drink container that is spill-proof for lunch boxes, book bags, to-go drinks in the car, or at home beyond the dining room!

My kids enjoy fruit-infused water more than anything else lately. Their friends at school have commented that it looks so good and they want some! It is amazing how much water kids drink if you put a few raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries in it!

I have enjoyed packing my kids healthy drinks for school and they have enjoyed the variety. We use a lot of single serve flavor packets because there are a lot of good options that with sugar alternatives. I simply mix up a batch of lemonade or fruit punch in the Drink in the Box for more flavors than ever. Or, I can pour from our pitcher of homemade lemonade!

I’ve also sent milk with my kids. Even though they can purchase milk at school, Drink in the Box allows me to send the milk my kids are use to, at a fraction of the price. Plus, since my kids are Type 1 Diabetic, I always measure drinks/foods and know for sure how many carbohydrates are in their lunches. Each Drink in the Box holds 1 cup of liquid.

Drink in the Box has fun add-ons to choose from including reusable stickers that are fun.

You can also add a freezer ice sleeve to keep drinks cool.

We’ve been reviewing Drink in the Box containers for the past couple weeks with really positive results. They are really spill-proof and leak-proof – so no more wet lunch boxes from leaked drinks!  Plus, I can put them in the dishwasher to clean and sterilize -something I couldn’t do before with a normal thermos container.


I don’t know about you but I’m always worried about mold and bacteria lingering in food and drink containers that I can’t put in the dishwasher.

You can purchase Drink in the Box on the DrinkintheBox website in green, orange, pink, and blue for just $11.99 each and on  They make excellent stocking stuffers too!
