    Hi there, wow, I found your site via Mrs Woog’s blog role and I’m glad I swung by as my eldest 2 boys have both completely worn out their lunch bags (they’ve had them almost 2 years) and I’ve been searching desperately for a good replacement.

    We use an insulated Smiggle lunch bag with lots of little containers (generally Tupperware and sistema plastics) and a Tupperware sandwich taker (and fruit rolling around- it’s chaos).
    We need something that fits in a good insulated bag as our summer temperatures are regularly 40 degrees plus. I’ll start looking from the list on your blog- thanks!! 🙂

      Hi Pip! Welcome! Gotta love that Mrs Woog 🙂

      I hope you find the list helpful – from memory Goodbyn has separate small containers as well? Some of the SoYoung bags are a lot bigger than what I’ve shown so they might be good. Definitely need those ice bricks! Can’t believe it gets over 40, where do you live?

        Hi Stacey,
        I live in rural midwest WA, this Jan/ Feb we had 2 weeks of 45-55 degree days!! I’ll definitely check out the SoYoung bags- thanks!! 🙂

    Hi Stacey,

    Great post. I was just wondering if any of these hold whole pieces of fruit? My kids do not like cut up fruit so I run into lunch box troubles with that.

    Love this collection! I’m starting to look at lunch boxes for Grace for when she’s at daycare and the days my MIL has her. I’ve started putting Grace’s lunch and snacks together at night and putting it in containers in the fridge to make my life easier, so definitely looking for a bento style lunchbox to corral all her food together.

    We’ve tried out a lot of different lunch boxes and the moment my son uses a nudie lunchbox that has 3 seperate compartments and two containers, it’s perfect! I also put it inside an insulated lunch bag to make it easy to carry.

    Great post, thanks for sharing your experience. My little one start preschool next year so I’ve been thinking about investing in one. We are tranitioning to zero waste, so a good stainless steel lunch box is just what we need!

      Awesome! I’m so glad this helped. We really love the stainless steel ones, so easy to be waste-free (well, as easy as that can be haha)

    Hi, was wondering which size Soyoung bag you used (the pink seahorse one) ^_^ Thanks. I was going to get the small one but not sure if my lunchbots will fit ><

    Thanks 🙂


  1. […] Which lunchbox is the best? – Stacey (aka The Veggie Mama) puts some gorgeous photos of her daughters lunches on Instagram which is giving me major lunch inspiration for when Grace is a little older, and now she has put together a list of the various lunch boxes she uses and what the benefits are. Definitely something I’ll be looking into for when Grace starts daycare! […]
