You don’t have to go crazy breaking your budget on top-of-the-line lunch boxes to pack a waste-free lunch. There are many reasonably priced lunch containers available. Pick a variety of types for different meals. Divided, or bento-style, boxes, keep separate items separate if you have a picky eater who doesn’t like their food to touch, or if you prefer to have an assortment of sides in your lunch. We're also really big fans of Lunch Skins, the coated bags come in multiple size, are reusable and oh so cute. Select a couple different styles so that you have options. Keep in mind that your child will need to be able to open and close the containers on their own at school, so be sure to select ones that are appropriate for their age.
