    I guess I'm happy to spend the money on a good lunchbox and bag, as I've probably spent $100 on insulated lunch bags in the last 4 years anyway! So if I can get one that lasts longer, it's worth it.
    I had a $10 one last three years! I only threw it out because it went missing (again), and turned up a few weeks later 'growing.' I decided after three years we could dispose of it. Now we have another $10 one to be used as a soccer ball and pushed down a stair railing 😂

    I'm with you on this one Full House. My kids have the $10 sistema cubes. If I brought them an expensive lunch box bets are it would be lost within the week. Drink bottles in this house are mythical things that disappear all the time!

    We've been using yumbox, but DS is in year 2 and I usually pack his sandwich, crackers and salad in the yumbox, banana in the bag, plus a separate container of fruit for recess.

    He's told me they take their whole lunchbox out at recess now (we had crunch and sip last year in class). So thinking he needs a bigger lunchbox that can hold all his days food rather than 2 separate containers. Plus now DD is at full time school, it takes up so much space with 2 of the yumboxes in the top rack of the dishwasher.

    Are the insulated bags good quality? We seem to go through school AND insulated bags and I don't know if he is just too rough, or if the bags I've bought just aren't meant to last! I told him no more licenced backpacks and got him one from the surf shop this year in the hope it will last the whole year
    I have a planet box rover I think. Fits a full sandwich, and I put in the bottom of the dishwasher everyday.

    For my one child who has a lunchbox, everything goes in a brown paper bag. We lost containers daily so I figured they would take longer to breakdown in the environment after a single use.

    I went to the planetbox website to have a look and oh my lord I couldn't justify the expense of one of those. Beautiful though they are, will stick to our kmart insulated boxes with ice brick. hahaha. I'll actually take a photo of their lunches one day to share here

    We use planetbox and yep they're expensive. BUT my nephew is in grade 6 this year and has had his since prep - going strong looks great. Every reason to expect it to go to high school with him! My Dh has had his for about 5 years.

    If you break it down how many plastic lunch boxes would you buy in that same time period? I would think a new one every year? So financially and environmentally if you can afford the initial outlay (and I respect not everyone can especially with multiple children) the planet Box makes sense.

    Default Show me your lunchbox 2017!!

    Yay I can finally join this thread!

    Kindy lunch for tomorrow. I love having an excuse to bake!

    ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1486370535.645468.jpg

    Chicken salad, bacon and cheese roll (recipe from Thermomumma), date and cranberry biscuit, and honey tiny teddies from The Road to Loving My Thermomix. Plus some strawberries and popcorn. I never know how much to pack 😳

    ETA and I posted on the wrong thread! How embarrassing! Oh well, there's a lunchbox in there somewhere...
