Best Boxes For A Packed Lunch

If you are particularly looking for lunches on the go, the chances are you may need a lunch box. it’s better for the environment and yourself to have a few reusable lunch containers.

My preference for lunch containers are plastic free ones. They are far better for the environment, in some cases they are more durable and it prevents you from eating the chemicals the leak into your food when using plastic.

 I do occasionally use plastic containers, when I can’t find a comparable alternative. There are tons of great options on the market now for lunch containers of every kind. Here are some of my favorite.

Salad Container

This Bentgo container is my absolute favorite for salads. It simplifies travelling with salad by having separate compartments for your salad dressing and any toppings you want to keep separate until the last minute. 

It’s the perfect way to have fresh salads on the go! Find out more about the Bentgo here.

Bento Style Lunch Box Containers

Bento boxes are great, especially if you are someone who likes to snack. Keep all the components of your meal separate in one container. For this I’ve got a few great options, each a different material.

Glass Lunch Boxes

Glass containers are a great option for food storage. They aren’t bad for the environment, can be microwaved, are dishwasher safe, and they don’t leach any taste into your food. Plus you can see what’s in them without having to open them, which if you are forgetful like me, can be very helpful.

This glass bento box has great reviews and it’s compartments are a good size for a sandwich and a side item, whether it be a small salad or dessert. Take note, that two of the set are divided and to are just regular glass containers. Check the set of containers out here.

Wheat Fiber

Especially if you are packing vegan lunches for kids, you may not want a glass container since they are bit heavier and slightly more breakable. This wheat fiber container is an awesome alternative.

The wheat fiber is completely safe, healthy and it’s a sturdy container. It’s also microwave safe, top rack of the dishwasher safe and comes with a money back guarantee.

Classic Compact Lunch Cube

This container is plastic, but if that doesn’t bother you, it’s a great compact lunch container. It’s also a classic option, and stores a lot of food.

The container seals tightly and is certainly durable. It’s really easy to throw into a backpack or purse and go. Check it out here.

Kid’s Insulated Lunchboxes

This Wildkins lunchbox is a fantastic option for kids. It comes in a ton of bright, fun options to suit any kids tastes.

It’s also spacious, durable, waterproof and well insulated. The lunchbox also has a nice mesh pocket to hold any utensils, napkins, etc.

Adults Insulated Lunchboxes

This lunchbox by Rubbermaid is great for adults. It’s large and spacious with spots for your utensils, an ice pack, a water bottle and anything else you need.

It comes in a very neutral pattern and with a carry strap for easy use. It’s insulated walls will keep food cold or hot for longer.

The lunch bag comes very highly rated, at a really low price tag. It also comes in different size options, so you can choose based on how much food you generally pack.
