Disabilty Friendly Lunch Boxes

Hi,
My name is Emily and I am a third year Occupational Therapy student at the University of Liverpool. I am currently in the middle of a 'Dragon's Den' module whereby we have to create a new product/app/piece of equipment with the aim to improve health and wellbeing. My aim is to design a disability friendly lunch box for children who may have limited grip/strength/movement in their hands, as I believe there is a huge need for a product like this. I hope to have this product give the children more independence and confidence when eating at school with their friends. I am seeking any advice regarding functional aspects of the lunch box and what parents may need it to include eg. easily washable fabric. Any advice or help is greatly appreciated!
Thank you!
