39 Kid-Friendly Lunch Boxes

From Sci-Fi Meal Carriers to Scribbling Food Containers

— August 8, 2014 — Life-Stages
The first day of school is just around the corner, to the dismay of many children, yet perhaps they'll feel a little better with one of these kid-friendly lunch boxes in hand. Fun, adorable and a great way to bribe children to eat healthy, these containers range from classic to modern and even original. There are plenty of ways to entice youngsters to bring their lunch to school instead of purchasing something from the cafeteria.

Whether that means appealing to them through their love of a particular TV show or making the kid-friendly lunch boxes slightly more interactive, companies have become very creative when it comes to this crucial time of day. Parents should have no trouble finding the best lunch box for their little ones.
