    We use the Smash insulated box ones. I like to get the ones with the mesh pocket so I can pop a frozen brick in there in summer. They are great and hold heaps. I then buy little containers for fruit for Crunch & Sip.

    There are some things with the kids for school I will spend decent amounts for like shoes. But having older kids, they bore with their lunch boxes. I also find the expensive ones don't hold very much. Fine for a preppie/kinder kid but later not so much.

    Each to their own though

    I have a yumbox for DS (he is almost 3 though and eats small amounts). I have the 'bento' style and also the other one that fits a sandwich.

    It's a good size for him. I will be getting him a bigger one when he starts school.

    I secretly bought the fancy lunchbox to insulate my food a little bit, because the fridge nearly freezes everything it's so cold! Frozen salad isn't the nicest

    I spent so much time getting an awesome lunchbox for DS. I put my food in whatever. So need to get myself a nice lunchbox.

    I have a niceish lunch bag (the insulated one but I need the nice lunchbox to go in it).

    I LOVE these ones

    Compartments for fruit on the top. plus a frozen water bottle compartment on top.
    They fit nicely into cooler bags and the bottom is big enough (but not too big) to fit lunch in.

    We go through lunchboxes like water here.
    It's not about which one is "right", so much as which is the cheapest- as they lose them so often.

    I remember eyeing off the Yumbox last year! I believe from memory there was a bit of a shortage last year because they were so popular.

    I think I'll get one this year

    I had to wait about a month for my new ones. I bought one of the old bento ones 3 years ago for DS, and needed more when DD went to DC. He now has a roll/sandwich so have 2 bento and 2 panino. I stocked up when I could as she is in kindy this year, so needed 2 of each incase they both want rolls or "bits" on the same day! The new colours are awesome. I've been eyeing off the ones with stars on them.
