    Default Lunch box recommendations

    I need a lunch box suggestion for my 4 yr old in Kinder and something he can use in prep etc. There are so many on the market.
    Something that will fit a sandwhich, can be put in an insulated bag, deep enough for snacks, leak proof etc.
    Any suggestions?

    Default Lunch box recommendations

    I would recommend the lunch bots and/or planet box ranges. They are stainless steel so hygenic and long lasting. Some can be complicated with layers and clasps etc... However some are very straightforward and easy to use.

    Default Lunch box recommendations

    They fit a surprising amount of food. A sandwich or wrap will fit in the larger section. My DH uses a planet box and a lunch boy trio as his lunch box at work - so more than enough food for a child.

    Edit - I know they sell them in store at Biome in Briabane and may have them in store elsewhere to have a look in person

    Edit edit lol just saw your in Vic there may be somewhere local that sells them.

    Thanks!
    Ps- would it be too big for a 4 yr old to carry to table etc then?

    We have the planetbox and it's fabulous - since DS has had his I've had 4 other mums get one as well as it fits in recess and lunch and has another container perfect for fruit break as they can take it out separately - I've got heaps of ideas and photos of ours if you need ideas!

    That would be lovely!
    I've never seen the part that you can remove for fruit!
    Can you please send me link to purchase the correct one and pics?
    Thanks
