Food Organization inside a lunch bag is one of those arts you must master as a parent. Do you go with ziploc bags or rubbermaid containers? Ziploc bags are great for convenience but terrible for the earth, while rubbermaid containers are a great idea until you have to fit five of them in a lunch bag and your child looses them all at school. If you’re lucky, you’ll find them in the lost and found at the end of the year…at which point it’s probably better that you don’t claim them. The answer to food organization is a Bento Box. My family has been using them for years and they are by far the best way to pack a lunch. One container can be filled with a variety of snacks that makes for easy cleaning and reduces your child’s chances of losing one massive container. Here are the top ten fantastic Bento boxes for back to school.
