Blowing my mind on Pinterest looking at planet box ideas! I'm going to get DS one for school next year 😊
Planet box looks cool
I've had a yumbox since my DS was very small and I absolutely love it, it's sturdy and has a seal that forms over the top so I can put yoghurt/dip/hommus etc. in it. He's almost 3 and I pack his lunch for daycare and I find it fits a lot in it. I can't stand having to wash a million small lunch containers. It was so worth the investment.
You can get the four compartment (for a sandwich) or six compartment. Depending on how much your child eats though you might need to throw a few extra things in the lunch bag. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1457002729.074517.jpg

Can you put dip in the Planetbox? If so where would you put it?
Yep it comes with 2 stainless steel round containers, one small which is perfect for dips and the larger one for rice or pasta
You can see them in some of these photos of DS lunches

Wise Enough (03-03-2016)
Another vote for the Yumbox. I have 3 and find it's perfect for that age. My daughter is 6 and used it from start of kindy last year.
I also like the lunchbots range of stainless steel ones. They come in heaps of sizes.
We use a fridge to go lunch bag and everything stays cold all day.
I have 3 yum boxes but find them rather small for my almost 3 yo big eater. I think it'll be fine for pre school as they only have one break but in primary I think he will need something bigger. In saying that, I put it into an insulated hippo blue lunch box, and can still fit a banana or packet of biscuits or something in the bag as well.
