It’s every mum’s mission to find the ultimate lunch box, especially for Kindergarten. There is so much to consider – the right lunch bag, containers, ice pack storage, colour, size and the list goes on.

Here is the Kindermum basic lunch box check list:

  • Will it fit into a lunch bag, if so what type?
  • Do I want the lid to be attached or not?
  • Is it leak proof?
  • Is it suitable for labelling?
  • Will my child like it?
  • Will there be enough space for food to keep them going throughout the day?
  • Is it tough enough to be dropped at least twice a day?

To make things even easier, we have listed our favourite lunch boxes for 2018.
