The top rated and very best lunch boxes for kids for school or for traveling comes in all sizes, designs and prices. Some are designed to maintain the temperature of the food as well, like some of the lunch boxes can keep hot food hot itself for hours and some lunch boxes are designed to keep cold food cold & fresh.
The main feature of all these lunch boxes for kids, whether they are designed to maintain the temperature or not, that most of them are designed to fit for travel to school or picnic or any outdoors.
You can pack your kids lunch conveniently and take them with you while you travel outside or pack your kids lunch for school conveniently so they easily open the box themselves without a mess and enjoy the foods.
Many of us mostly try to pack dry finger foods like veggies or fruits for snacks or as sides for lunch along with a simple cheese bread sandwich or a yummy pasta, so having side compartments can help pack those sides along with the main dish.
I personally prefer compact sized lunch boxes with one main compartment and one small compartment for any sides so I can keep the main dish like the sandwich or pasta or pancakes and send a side like fresh cut strawberries or blueberries or apples or whatever.
I also prefer to use BPA free plastic if I am using plastic food boxes, even though my first preference is steel lunch boxes, if I can find a design suitable for my needs.
Rubbermaid lunch boxes are lightweight and easy to carry to school or traveling. They come in different sizes and colors so you can choose whichever size or color you want from the available options.
The rubbermaid lunch box products come as BPA free containers suitable fro carrying lunch to school or traveling and they also have the insulated lunch bags (which can hold the containers) with a bottle holder where you can keep the water bottle and also they have reusable blue ice packs which comes with the containers, which you can keep in between the different containers if you like.
So basically, you can buy the lunch box containers alone or you can buy the lunch bag also which will perfectly fit the lunch box containers and also the blue ice packs (you can arrange the blue ice packs in between the containers)
Also the rubbermaid lunch box containers come in different designs. They come as a sandwich kit which include multiple containers or they come as a single entree container with dividers which is a more simple design.
See below the different types of rubbermaid lunchboxes available to buy so you can choose one suitable for your needs.

Stainless Steel lunch boxes never lose their charm and they are very durable and preferred by many while choosing lunch boxes for adults or kids.
And many of them are bento style designs too with multiple compartments available, and these durable stainless steel lunch boxes make one of the best lunch boxes for kids.
Steel lunch boxes are great as they are very good in quality and lasts longer than many other kind of lunch boxes and today most of them come with compact designs and leak proof designs too.
I love stainless steel containers and lunch boxes and personally I think they are one of the best kinds of lunch box which you can easily handle too without worrying about scratches or toxicity.
