School has officially started and we are obsessed with a few lunchbox products.  One thing that I have noticed about my kids is that when they are excited about their lunchbox, they eat their lunch.  THIS makes me happy.


The first item we love is the Rover Bento Box by Planetbox.  I never knew of such luxury! Planetbox is the Rolls Royce of Bento Boxes.  It has three options for lunchboxes, The Shuttle Box, The Rover Box, and the Launch Box.  I chose The Rover Box for my son, who started Kindergarten.  I thought it was the best option for him, with smaller serving sizes and a lot of compartments for other food.  Since it holds about 5 cups of food, it is also suitable for adults.  This stainless-steel lunchbox makes it so much easier to pack lunch and also comes with 1 Big Dipper and 1 Little Dipper.

Planetbox lunch boxes are dishwasher safe, non-toxic, and have a 5-year warranty.  Planetbox also offers awesome accessories, from water bottles to utensils.

We added some custom magnets and a Carry Bag.

For me, the Carry Bag is not optional.  My son needs to have a bag to carry his lunchbox in and keep it cool using the ColdKit which fits inside the inner mesh pocket.  He also needs a water bottle and the Carry Bag has a pouch that holds it perfectly, in addition to the inner elastic straps for his utensils.

Ziptuck Kids Reusable Bags

We go on road trips a lot and are always packing snacks.  I absolutely hate using sandwich bags for snacks.  It’s such a waste.  So, we found these Ziptuck Kids Reusable Bags by Full Circle and they work great.

They are BPA-free, leak-proof, have an air-tight “lock” seal design, and  hold liquid.

They also come in a smaller size and a variety of colors and patterns.  Full Circle is a sustainable lifestyle brand that believes in creating healthier options that inspire smarter choices.

The Snack in the Box  &  Drink in the Box

If your kids are “snackers,” they will love Snack in the Box. My kids think it’s the coolest snack container ever! 

It has two separate chambers that each hold 6 ounces of snacks. And it’s sidekick, Drink in the Box, is the healthy, reusable option to replace sugary, disposable juice boxes.

My kids love the drink box too and have yet to ask for juice now that they use it. 

These are available in Blue, Pink, Orange, Green and Purple. MSRP: $9.99 (Snack in the Box); and $11.99 and $14.99 (8 oz. and 12 oz Drink in the Box). Available online at DrinkintheBox.com or Amazon.


In Florida, we have to stay hydrated ALL the time.  The kids are always on the go, so we keep the ion8 handy.

They are 100% leak proof, easy to use with one hand with a one-touch flip top as well as a secure lid lock and are dishwasher safe.

They are also suitable for HOT and COLD liquids!  My boys are rough with their ion8s‘ too and they have never cracked or leaked when dropped.

We LOVE these items for on the go or to take to school.  What are your “go to” products?
