I can hardly believe it myself, but Back to School is just around the corner. Here in Hawaii, my kids start back pretty early. I’ve spent all of July prepping for back to school season– gathering school supplies, ordering school uniforms, and (my favorite) getting my lunch box supplies for the year!
Each year I like to share my picks for the BEST lunch packing supplies with you guys. I’ve tried out loads of different boxes, water bottles, and other lunch packing goodies and these are the best of the best!
EasyLunchBoxes are absolutely my go to boxes. I’ve been using them for years, they’re perfectly stackable and nest inside each other for easy storage. BPA Free and dishwasher safe. You can get a set of four in Classic, Brights, or Urban for only $13.95 making them a fantastic budget friendly choice! For ideas of what to pack in your EasyLunchBoxes click here.
If you are looking for a one box only system for you lunches, I am a big fan of the Yumbox Panino. It’s big enough to hold a sandwich, and comes with a pre-divided tray that has the cutest little compartments. The Yumbox comes in a bunch of really fun colors and tray patterns. The Yumbox is dishwasher safe, BPA Free, and leakproof! $29.99 for each from Amazon. You can see ideas for what to put in your Yumbox here.
Also from Yumbox is the CUTEST little mini snack size box, the Yumbox Mini. It’s a perfect snack box for our kids AM snack break. I like to pack mostly cheese and crackers in ours for a quick morning pick me up. Also great for yogurt and fruit with is divided tray. Get yours for $22 from Amazon.
I LOVE our Thermos Funtainers for carrying the kids’ beverages in their lunch bags. These 12 oz. versions are what we use and come with a pop up straw and integrated holder. These Funtainers can keep things nice and chilly for up to 12 hours. They come in a few different colors, and character choices–price varies based on design.
Trendy in Hawaii, these Hydro Flask bottles are EVERYWHERE. On our school supply list, the kids were asked to bring a water bottle to keep at their desk. We send our Hydro Flasks to school to keep the kids hydrated. They are THE BEST at keeping water super chill. I LOVE THEM!
Other Cool Stuff
These silicone cupcake liners are perfect for keeping things divided in our lunches. They’re easy to pop into any lunch box. They’re dishwasher safe too, also you can make cupcakes with them sooooo… get them!
This Squeezy Snacker is my favorite thing for sending smoothies in Kolton and Kaylee’s lunch boxes. They’re the only reusable squeeze pouch I have found that actually gets cleaned without leaving a nasty slime behind. It turns completely inside out and has a removable spout. This is THE one to get!
You gotta keep things cold, friends. Grab your self a few of these ice blocks and pop them in. These ones will keep your kids lunches nice and chill.
This is my favorite lunch bag. It’s sooooo roomy. It can hold the kids’ lunch, snack, and water bottle with room to spare. It’s washable, and available in a variety of different patterns and colors. You can find yours on amazon.
So there you have it, friends! Our lunch box picks for 2017! Hope y’all have an amazing school year!
