Healthy Lunch Ideas for Your Kids; My Favorite Lunchboxes

I am excited to bring you my new series, “Healthy Lunchbox Ideas for your Kids”. This will be covering tips and ways for us to pack healthier school lunches, as an alternative to buying school lunches. Yesterday I talked about some very unhealthy foods being marketed to our kids today, and some healthier alternatives. Today, I want to share with you, some of my favorite lunchboxes I use to pack her school lunch (and lunch out and about in town, at theme parks, etc).

Here are the 3 main lunchboxes I use, and we mainly use 1 now for Kindergarten, but use the others for picnics, days out at the zoo, theme parks, beach, etc. We pretty much pack our food wherever we go, for 2 reasons. 1, to stay on track with healthy eating and 2, to save money. Who doesn’t NEED that, right?!?!



My favorite, and the one I use daily in her school lunchbox is the Kids Fit and Fresh Divided Lunchbox.

  • BPA Free and ice pack is non-toxic and freezer safe
  • Plastic containers are microwave, freezer and top rack dishwasher safe
  • Perfect solution to no more squished sandwiches, flattened grapes or a broken juice box
  • Removable, reusable ice pack clips into the lid or to the bottom of the tray to keep foods chilled and fresh until lunchtime
  • Top tray is divided into two sections, bigger section holds 0.8 cups and smaller section holds 0.75 cups; Bottom container holds 5.125 cups

Another I really like, and I used this all through preschool and VPK, is the Easy Lunch Boxes.

  • Designed with kid-friendly, easy-open lids, therefore, NOT LEAK-PROOF; avoid liquids or runny food; for children, teens, and adults
  • Lid fit is snug, not tight; great for people with special needs, allergies, picky eaters; make your own healthy “Lunchables”; pack leftovers tonight for a fresh lunch tomorrow
  • 3 compartments (9.4″ x 6.1″ x 2″); made from FDA-approved, high-quality polypropylene #5 plastic; No BPA, PVC, or phthalates
  • Great for portion control or special diet; keeps food separated; safe for microwave, freezer, dishwasher; these food storage containers nest together to save space when not in use
  • Fewer pieces, more function; pack eye-appealing meals or snacks with ease; freezable, microwaveable, portable, stackable; Best when carried in an EasyLunchbox Cooler Bag (in 7 colors)

And lastly, we like the Laptop Lunches Bento-ware Bento Buddies.

  • Set of 4 sealable containers. Added versatility to your Laptop Lunches Bento Lunch Box
  • Leak proof. Foods you pack will be safe from spills
  • Made in the USA with high quality, non-toxic materials free of lead, BPA and PVC
  • All components are top rack dishwasher safe
  • Containers are microwave safe. Lids are not suitable for the microwave
