Age range: 2.5-8 (depending on appetite and whether the child takes a separate fruit break). We have also used them as adults for picnics.
Where to buy: Little Bento World
Price: $30 for 4
Best for: Kids who have a sandwich (or two) and some dry snacks.

If you’re looking for a budget option, these are a great one! Awesome for family outings, picnics etc as well because they stack brilliantly.
Pros:Easily hold 1-2 sandwiches, depending on the thickness of the bread. The side compartments hold extras such as chopped fruit or biscuits, raisins etc. These are best for dry foods as there can be transfer between compartments. If you are looking for a leak proof way to carry yoghurt and sauces in these, invest in a small leakproof container that you can pop inside.
The lid seals well and food stays fresh in the lunchbox. They are also bpa, Vinyl, PVC, Phthalates free and can be used in the fridge, freezer or even the microwave so are great for preschools or schools where they will reheat your kids lunch for you.
Easy washing in the dishwasher and these seem to dry really quickly. There are 3 colour ways to choose from Brights, Urban or Classic (each pack has 4 colours).
The price. You get a pack of 4 for $30, so if one gets left at school/in the bottom of the school bag there is always a spare! With only two pieces per lunchbox, there aren't lots of bits to be lost. Even Master 3 finds these very easy to open.
Cons: The easy lunchboxes make no claims to being leakproof, so you know they aren’t leakproof! They need to be kept upright for this reason, so that could be limiting for in school bags. Please note that the original colours and the new brights are not interchangeable due to a mould change.
