25 Great Back-to-School Lunch Bags Your Kids Will Love

evel kneivel luncboxThat was my lunch box for grade 4 and 5.

I remember it well. An Evel Knievel Tin lunchbox that now sells for $55 on eBay.

I banged mine around right up until the day the glass in the thermos shattered and, well, I didn’t eat my soup that day.

Thermoses were a big deal when I was going to school. Now it’s insulated lunch bags and boxes that will keep foods cool and fresh until noon.

Check out this list of 24 more trendy back-to-school re-usable lunch bags your kids will love.

And just like the lunch bag your kids will reuse every day, you can reuse the Ziploc bags you pack their lunches in.

TheSimpleDollar did some testing and found a Ziploc bag could be reused as many as 16 times before the seams started to wear. That was after soups and sauces in the bags. If all you put in are cookies, and sandwiches, you just have to tap out the crumbs to get a reusable bag.
