Kid Lunch Boxes
It’s that time again…. time to start thinking about your kid lunch boxes for the new school year. I have been to Target and WalMart and noticed that all the new school supplies are in and they are ready to go. Now personally I worry about my kid lunch boxes the week prior to school, but this year we are on a hunt so I will be looking sooner. My kid lunch boxes this year will be a bento box. While bento boxes don’t typically fit in traditional lunch boxes, they do usually make their own lunch box. Now my son had a bento box last year and it is still in great condition, but to spice things up a bit we are going to buy another one. Last year the kid lunch boxes consisted of a laptop lunch box and a regular lunch box that I purchased at Pottery Barn. I love the laptop lunch box, and the Pottery Barn lunch box is fine, but I need to use plastic baggies and tupperware. This time I want a size in between two and I would really love to eliminate the need for plastic baggies during lunch.
Great Kid Lunch Boxes
Bento Boxes make great kid lunch boxes, they offer compartments so that you child’s food doesn’t touch (we all know how important that is). It cuts down on the amount of plastic baggies you use and it creates a fun and colorful way to serve lunch. There are plenty of options too when creating your kid lunch boxes. There are tons of devices to keep food separate, cut shapes into your food and cook books for inspiration.
My son is always begging for Lunchables to as my kid lunch boxes… GROSS!! Don’t get me wrong, I love junk food, but Lunchables to me are just gross, I am sure the only thing that attracts my son to cold bread with cold sauce and unmelted cheese is the draw of the compartments and of course the little bag of M&Ms (all of which I can make for a lot less when using bento boxes for my kid lunch boxes).

This is from Goodbyn, it has good reviews, but some do mention that the lid pops off easily and that the juice container may leak. It does say that it fits nicely into a back pack. It comes with stickers so that your child may give it their personal touches. For more reviews click here to go to Amazon.
These kid lunch boxes are from Easy Lunch Boxes. They are a less expensive alternative. They are more substantial than the gladware version that you can get at the grocery store.
