    Yumbox Panino Bento Lunch Box

    Back to school lunch box ideas - Yumbox bento lunch box

    The Yumbox panino is the big sister to the original Yumbox bento style lunch box, and one of our most popular. It is an ideal design for children and adults of all ages with four compartments and a single leak-proof lid. The Yumbox panino fits perfectly into our SoYoung insulated lunch bags.

    What you had to say:  I bought these lunchboxes for my 3 children (4, 5 and 5) and after a year they still look brand new. No leaks, perfect for portion control, and my kids have no problems opening them without assistance. I have since bought one for hubby and I, and the snack versions as well. Great lunchboxes. ~ Sarah F., Yumbox panino in Aztec red.

    PlanetBox Rover Complete Kit

    Back to school lunch box ideas - Planetbox rover complete kitA PlanetBox lunch box guides you in packing a well-balanced, litter-less lunch. The kit includes a rover style PlanetBox with five compartments, magnets, carry bag, plus one large and one small leak proof stainless steel container with silicone lids (“dippers”).

    What you had to say: We just love our PlanetBox! Yes, the initial outlay is quite pricey for a lunch box, but this is a serious lunch box. The stainless steel will last for years to come, so no more purchasing a new lunch box every school year. Due to the various compartments it eliminates the need for plastic or paper wraps and baggies. And while each individual compartment is not leak proof (though we’ve never had real issues with anything seeping between compartments, there are two containers that fit right inside that are for more messy foods like dips and yoghurt. The fact that it can all go in the dishwasher (except the silicone seals) means it’s super easy to clean each night. These lunch boxes have completely changed the way we do lunch and I’ll never go back. ~ Isabel R., Planetbox rover complete kit with rocket magnets.

The bag is made from PEVA and polyester and features a bright pattern on the outside, and a pocket to hold reusable napkins and cutlery on the inside.

    What you had to say: I have been using our Go Green boxes for a couple of months now and love them (so do the kids). Before I got these lunch boxes I was using loads of little containers to pack the kids lunches, these boxes save me time with packing and washing up. They seem to be really good quality. The bags and boxes are holding up really well : ) ~ Pamela P., Go Green lunch box in space design.

    Goodbyn Hero Lunch Box

    Back to school lunch box ideas - Goodbyn hero lunch box

    The Goodbyn hero is super versatile with up one large and two smaller compartments, plus two leak proof dippers that fit inside. It is made from #5 PP (polypropylene), which is one of the most benign plastics on the market.

    What you had to say: I bought this lunchbox a year ago, and I’m very happy with it. The size is very generous, I can fit more than enough for my 6 year old to eat, and it should be big enough for her during primary (and possibly high school too!). She has no problems opening or closing it properly. These are great for a “rubbish free” lunch. Because it is quite large, I had some difficulty finding an insulated lunch bag to fit it in, but Goodbyn have since released a lunch bag in lovely colours, which I’m definitely going to purchase. I highly recommend this lunchbox, and I will be buying it for my younger children as they grow. ~ Rani U., Goodbyn hero in pink.
