6 Fun & Functional Lunch Boxes for Back to School

I remember picking out tin lunch boxes for school based on my favorite cartoon that year. The boxes weren’t high tech in the least, and they were all made in one standard issue size. I didn’t realize quite how much things had changed until I bought my daughter’s first lunch box when she started kindergarten. So many options! I’ve learned a lot about lunch boxes since then, and here are a few of my top picks for lunch boxes to consider when everyone heads back to school this fall.
