Best Lunch Bags and Accessories for Back to School

Sending your kids off to school with a good, healthy lunch starts with having the right equipment for the job. If their lunch bags are falling apart—or missing altogether (sigh)—or if you don’t have containers for your leftovers, life sucks. Same thing goes if you can’t find the lid for her thermos or water bottle.

Sadly, these things can go M.I.A. over the course of the school year. Start the year off right by choosing the lunch bags and accessories that suit your budget and the needs of your kids. Some children are great at taking care of good quality gear that can then be passed on to their little siblings. Others are lost-and-found frequent flyers who seem to need as many water bottles and lunch bags as pairs of underwear.

That’s why we’ve put together this round-up of lunch gear for every budget. Pick the right stuff and packing lunch may not seem like such a chore. And, who knows—maybe you’ll take fewer trips to the lost-and-found.
