4 Back to School Essentials

Sponsored content.

Is your child starting school this year? How exciting! I have you covered with these four back to school essentials.

I remember a couple of years ago, when my daughter first started school, feeling SO overwhelmed. I felt like all the other mums at the gates had it together except for me.

Two years on, well I’m much better. I mean, I still forget things at times and have all the questions, but it really does get easier as time goes on.

Here are some of our favourite back to school products for your child’s school bag to make their day even better.


4 Back to School Bag Essentials

1. Bright and helpful name labels!

We label everything from lunchboxes and drink bottles to clothing and books. Kids lose stuff (well, ours do!) and having the labels means those items are quickly returned.

Get organised for back to school with this School Labels Value Kit from Bright Star Kids!

2. Nutritious and fun lunchbox snacks!

Our kids have been Kiddylicious fans from when they started solids, to starting daycare and school. It’s easy to see why they’re the fastest-growing brand in the baby food market!

They really care about kids’ food that tastes great but is also nutritious and whether your mini is starting daycare or school, they’re a lovely addition to a lunch box.

3. Cool and clever drink bottles

We LOVE these funky, insulated stainless steel bottles from Cheeki!

Their BPA-free leakproof flip-top lid means less mess and they can keep drinks cool for 6 to 24 hours. Perfect for school bags – no more water-damaged books and bags!

These Insulated Bottles have a rubber handle and sleeve so they’re easy to grip and carry too.

Cheeki make durable, ecofriendly stainless steel beverage containers in a huge range of sizes, colours and designs.

Our kids take water to school and daycare and whether it’s in their bag or on their desk, these bottles will keep the water cool all day long.

These bottles come in an array of cool designs that will appeal to all kids from toddler to teen!

Check out the Blue Shark and Pink Dolphin bottles and the Cheeki range here at Aussie Health Products.

4. A well-stocked pencil case – with a hint of magic!

If you’re stocking up on school stationery (or for your own office!), my all-time favourite pens are the Pilot Pens FriXion pens.

They come in a huge variety of colours and styles – and they have a secret weapon!

FriXion pens are not only a pleasure to write with but they are also erasable.

At the end of each pen is an eraser and when used, the friction erases any mistakes you’ve made when using the pen. Genius!
