My Favorite Lunch Gear for Back-to-School

I've rounded up some of my favorite reusable lunch gear for back-to-school! 

I get asked all the time what products I use for packing lunch so I wanted to share some of my favorites. When it comes to school lunch, how it looks and how it's packed has a lot to do with whether it will be eaten! There's nothing worse than your child coming home from school with a lunch box full of the food you packed. 

This lunch gear makes packing school lunch fun and easy. Not only are they environmentally friendly, but your kids will love how cute and customizable they are - from the lunch box it's packed in to the food inside! It's time to throw out (not literally!) those plastic ziploc bags that you've been using and jump on the reusable lunch gear train! I promise you won't regret it.

    The Lunch Bots line of gear is my favorite for packing my kids' lunches and my own. I like that the bento-style boxes are stainless steel. Their stainless steel water bottles are excellent, keep water very cold all day, and best of all, the bottle and lid can both go in the dishwasher. I have been using the same Lunch Bots bento boxes since my daughter was young (maybe 2nd grade?) and she will be starting 8th grade in two weeks and they are still in perfect condition, and go through the dishwasher all the time.

    Thank you for introducing PlanetBox to me. Going on 7 years with ours now & both my kids still love them & they’re still in great condition. The bento style of eating a variety of things totally suits us & your ideas have helped us throughout the years. Middle schooler & 5th grader I now have. Started reading your site when they were in Pre-K. TY!

    We have been in love with Planetbox for years. We also have used most of those water bottles and love the kleenkanteen most. I am excited to get your recommended thermos! We do so many soups and he has been asking for one. Love your site, love your recipes and love you on Food Network! My fav judge on GGG.
