    Default Show me your kid's lunchbox!

    I'm looking for a good lunchbox for my DS to take to childcare.

    Childcare like us to send just the one lunchbox container with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea in it - so it needs to be big, and probably have some different compartments, or containers within the main lunchbox that we can put stuff in. My DS loves bananas too, so something that would fit in a banana would be good.

    So - show me your kid's lunchbox! What have you got? Does it work for you and your little ones?

    Haven't got a pic but I love our yumbox. My DS has used it from 11 months almost every day for snacks and then for childcare. It's almost 3 years old and is still in great nick. He loves eating out of it at childcare. My DS isn't a fan of sandwiches and I love that it has 5 compartments. You can also put stuff likr hommus and yoghurt in it as the lid forms a seal. It won't fit a whole banana in it (unless you cut it up) but i often put a banana on top of his yumbox which goes in a zip up lunchbag and it fits perfectly.

    I also hear planet boxes are great too.

    DS has two yumboxes with different sized compartments. He loves them.

    We have both yumbox original and panino which will fit a whole sandwich. It may be a little small for your needs by the sound of it. I've heard good things about Go Green and The Little Lunchbox co looks great.

    These are what I use for my kids. They are Sistema brand. Very hardy. Easy to use, my 2yo can open his fine. Big enough to put a piece of fruit in without having to cut it. Plenty of room in the top for a sandwich or some wraps. And comes with the little container.

    We just got the go-green. Haven't used it yet but it looks totally decent and DD can open it quite easily including the little lock it has. Its bigger than the yum box so I'm hoping it will see us through a good few years.

    I have yumbox for DS (will not fit a full unpeeled banana. It is a good size for him. He is almost 4 but a smallish eater.

    I have Goodbyn lunchboxes for DD they have different sizes, sections and leak proof containers to add in there.
