Best Kid’s Lunch Boxes

         I am extremely excited for my first-born daughter, who is starting Kindergarten soon. Her school will offer breakfast, lunch and supper, but she will still need to bring some healthy snacks and bottled water with her. So ‘insulated lunch boxes’ are critical to keep snacks fresh and tasty all day. I think the best lunch boxes should have bottle compartments, shoulder straps, inside and outside pockets available, insulated, lightweight and waterproof. Here are some of my recommended lunch boxes for your little ones.

The Rover is designed for those who prefer to sample a wide variety of foods with smaller serving sizes.

Ultimately, we need as parents to offer lunch boxes that are functional, convenient and fun for our children to bring to school.  My daughter likes cute things. So I like to keep everything interesting by purchasing products that I know she will like. It takes a lot of effort to do research on products that are great and affordable out there. However, at the end of day all my effort adds up because I know my kid’s new lunchbox will put a smile on her face.
