10 Best Back-To-School Lunch Boxes

With yet another child going into school, I’m scouring the web for reviews and the best products to stock up on extra lunch supplies before the school year begins. That means I have 12 days, people. Twelve short, action-packed days to get my ducks in a row so that three smiling faces will head out the door that Tuesday morning, jump on the bus and have a lunch expertly packed by yours truly.

Luckily, I have a few (ahem, 7) years of school lunch packing experience behind me and a few excellent resources, including another school lunch packing expert, One Hungry Mama. Her school lunch posts on Facebook always inspire, and she even turned me on to Lunchskins last year. See them after the jump!
