With the new school year fast approaching, it’s time to get your kids geared up with cool lunch boxes that are not only stylish, but functional. For my kids, searching for new lunch pails is the most exciting part of their back-to-school prep. It’s a way for them to express their individual style and find a functional bag for all of their feasting needs. We take great care exploring each lunch boxes’ features. Our requirements: Plenty of insulated compartments for cold Mott’s juice drinks (we love Fruit Punch Rush and Wild Grape Surge); mesh pouches for smaller snacks; and dry areas for utensils and napkins.
Check out six favorites you and your kid are sure to love.
