Finding the right kids lunch box is not a task for the faint of heart. As parents have learned the hard way (guilty!), if you have the wrong kids’ lunch container, that organic turkey sandwich you packed will wind up in the trash. The best lunch boxes for kids are durable, easy to open and close, don’t leak, keep food fresh, and in some cases, prevent different foods from touching each other.

Thankfully for picky kids and their discerning parents, there’s an abundance of lunch boxes to choose from. You can opt for a simple insulated lunch sack, to a top-tier bento box for older kids who can manage to open and close it, or a container that holds food and a water bottle. These kids’ lunch boxes will make weekday lunchtime that much better.
