Best lunch box
Top pick: Sugarbooger Good Lunch bento box
Time is of the essence during that blink-and-you-miss-it lunch break, so don’t make your kid mess around with opening lots of little containers. (That’s more lids and pieces to get lost, anyway.) Sugarbooger’s Good Lunch bento box has one lid covering three roomy compartments. The dividers go up to the lid, so even little things like raisins don’t slide around. (Raise your hand if your kid is particular about certain foods not touching.) Tabs on the sides make it easy to open and close the box.
Prefer stainless steel? LunchBots and PlanetBox are popular with plastic-phobic parents. They are an investment, though, so be prepared to sprint to the lost-and-found when your kid comes home sans the $50 lunchbox.
