    Default What makes a GREAT lunchbox?

    We haven't had any Tupperware stolen..... surely kids don't care about good quality plastic?

    Forgot to add, they have a lifetime warranty too. Can't go past that.
    After over 300 times of me clicking a lid on and off, a hit of plastic broke on one of my 7 lunchboxes (the aqua one... poor aqua one) - got it replaced no problems (sadly not with aqua, as it was no longer made by then).

    I'm still trying to figure it out...

    Plastic boxes they tend to break through tripping over their bags, or tossing them around. Insulated bags get smelly and mouldy.

    The best lunchboxes I remember having for the boys were gorgeous metal lunch boxes. They were excellent, didn't break and super easy to keep very very clean.

    At the moment I'm using insulted bags with klipo containers to keep their sandwiches and crackers in otherwise they end up squashed.

    DD1 got a lot of help in prep opening containers. At our school the preps all eat together with teachers helping them negotiate containers etc.

    I've found no perfect fit yet to be honest, but now she's in year 1 it's a lot easier.

    I can't believe how much food some of kids eat at school DD1's happy with cruskits with jam and fruit for recess then a sandwich for lunch. Anything more and I get in trouble from her for sending too much food to school.

    Definitely stay away from fabric lunch boxes they really do stink dd's especially because she wouldn't chuck her stuff in the bin so there would be leaking yogurt and fruit juice in it....gross! Our favourite one has been a plain large lunch box we got at big w. I think it came in purple or blue. It's clear and about $6 it fits heaps in, easy to clean, cheap and lasts forever no cracks etc.

    The only problem we find with tupperware is so many kids have it in the classroom it can get mixed up, so we've labelled all our containers!

    My school kids have an insulated lunch box (smash brand) and i have a whole drawer full of assorted plastic containers I pop in depending on what they are having.
    Sometimes its leftovers, vegi sticks, fruit salad etc so i find having a large range of different size containers works for us.
    The insulated ones don't get smelly I give them a wash each day after school, the zips have been a bit of a problem they tend to get a bit tatted and don't work so well after time so usually the kids get a new lunchbox every year or every second year.

    For my preschooler i have a tupperware sandwich plus and its great (it was my mums from when i was little in the 80's and it still works a treat)
    I love the compartments, only problem is for school is you can't fit an apple or banana in them.

    If you get a plastic lunch box make sure its large enough, some aren't deep enough.
