Gone are the days when stuffing everything into one big bag was okay. Nowadays, parents provide their children multiple bags, especially for school, for a number of reasons. One, multiple bags take away the headache of one huge disorganized chaos of a bag. Let’s face it. When something can’t be found, kids always yell for their moms and dads to look for it with them. Two, dividing the load between bags lessens the strain on a child’s body. If everything is simply put into one big backpack to be lugged around by a small child all day, it can lead to long-term bad posture, shoulder and back strain, and eventually, spinal problems.
A big bag like a shoulder bag is great for containing books, notebooks, and other supplies for school, but it would be unwise to place food and drinks into the same place. Food containers and water bottles have the risk of spilling; even condensation from cold drinks can stain and ruin a notebook. That’s why it is also important to provide a separate lunch bag for a child as it is designed to keep food and drinks from spilling out. Most lunch bags are made of water-proof, stain-proof, and insulated materials that will keep one’s baon secure and fresh. Days can run long and humid, so it is also recommended to pack a wash bag for a child as well, containing a tooth brush, tooth paste, cologne, face towel, and other things to ensure that one stays clean all day.
