New Lunchbox Fun

I love lunchboxes. Period. And I love when they make lunch packing and lunch enjoying easier.
Here are a few new ones I am trying out with the kids this week and today's lunches. Which lunchbox is your favorite lunch box currently? Leave me a comment! I'd love to know what works for you!

This lunch is for my 5 year old daughter. She loves to have a choice but really only needs 1/2 a sandwich, fruit, veggies and a dry snack. I love that the Lock & Lock bento box only takes up a little more then half of her lunch cooler so I can add a thermos or reusable drink bottle and it still fits into her small Kindergarten backpack. Plus, the two inserts are removable and you can tailor the lunchbox to your daily needs. Great for small eaters. In the bento box today is packed:
  • cucumber slices
  • orange slices
  • a 1/2 a chocolate spread sandwich
  • pretzel crackers

My daughter also brings a daily snack and this Sistema snack box works great for us. She loves applesauce and almost daily brings an applesauce pouch and a small dry snack or veggies. Today we packed a GoGo Spqeez Apple Banana pouch and some left over homemade mud buddies. To make lunch more fun I added a cute topper to make her smile.

This is our new Fit & Fresh Lunch Pak Carrier and I already love the versatility! It fits a whole sandwich for my 4th grader in the bottom of the box and the top tray fits into the same box. You can attach an ice pack to the bottom of the top tray and the lid which makes this easy to pack and your food easy to keep fresh! We are also trying out the Kids' Squeeze Water Bottle. I love that the opening is wide enough to fit ice cubes and because it is a squeeze bottle it is ideal for lunch and for using it during during school in the afternoon. Packed today is:
  • a Turkey and lettuce sandwich with a fun topper
  • orange wedges
  • cucumber sticks and
  • homemade mud buddies

Did you spot the fun bento pick? I found it at bento USA and love that you can write on it with a food safe marker. Perfect for entertaining and adding a fun element to lunch!! 

For my picky 8 year old I love using the Goodbyn Bynto right now because it just works for him. It fits just enough food and has just enough space for a little variety. Well, and it perfectly fits our favorite Zbars. That is a good reason to choose a lunchbox right? We packed for him:
  • cucumber sticks and two grape tomatoes (fingers crossed the bento pick actually makes it back home today ;)
  • orange slices
  • a 1/2 chocolate spread sandwich
  • pretzel crackers
  • and a CLIF Kid ZBar Protein
Here is where I got my new lunch gear (contains affiliate links):


  1. I have a variety of lunch boxes including the Lunch Blox, Lunchbots Trio, several 2 tiered bentos, Lock&Lock and Easy Lunch Boxes. By far my favorite is the Lock&Lock. I started out with one. I know have three.

    The Lock&Lock makes it easy with it's divided sections. I can add a small amount of food or stuff each section to the top. No food touches or shifts. I can add silicone liners and food picks to make it cute and fun for the younger two while keeping it plain for the older one. Another plus is the Lock&Lock fits in each child's lunch bag along with a thermos.

    Though I enjoy having a variety of lunch boxes, the Lock&Lock is my favorite.

  2. Our favourite lunchboxes right now are the Yumbox and Yumbox Panino (especially the Panino!). I do like the look of the Lock&Lock box, I'll be keeping my eye out for one of those when Small Baby starts to pre-school in a couple of years!
    Your lunches look lovely, so fresh and colourful!
