“As with most products geared towards kids, lunch boxes should be durable, easy to clean and easy to transport,” says Cristie Besu, a certified sports nutritionist and founder of Eat Me Guilt Free. Our list includes a variety of designs and features to guarantee that your child will want to carry their lunch box around proudly and that its contents will stay fresh and safe throughout the day. We carefully considered design, material, ease of use, size, ease of cleaning, and value when reviewing products.
