, stylish lunch boxes that are easy to pack

Have you looked at a Sunday newspaper recently?  It's back to school shopping time!  I don't know if I'm happy or sad about summer coming to a close. Yes, it was nice to have the kids around, but I'm running out of ideas to keep the kids busy. Luckily my kids are at an age where back to school and back to school shopping is fun.

Beside finding the perfect backpack, the kids love looking for their lunch boxes. For my youngest, he will be getting his first lunch box. While I have a few ideas about what he should use, I know that he has to be happy with the ultimate decision.

What I look for in a lunch box is durability. I don't want to have to buy a replacement in 3 or 4 months. Second, I want a lunch box that can easily fit into my child's back pack. Some lunch boxes are an awkward size or shape. I don't want homework folders to be bent or papers destroyed because my kids can easily load and unload their backpacks. Lastly, I want a design that my kids will like (no one wants a "outdated" character or design).

Our family chose to order my son's lunch box from With the guidance of my son, we chose the Laptop lunch benito carrier version.

What I like about this lunch box is that the design is flat. It can easily slide into a backpack. At the same time, it has lots of room to carry lunch, snack and a water bottle. Also, I really like the outer zip pocket. It's a great place put napkins or a special note.

This lunch box comes in three designs. There are options for boys, girls and adults. My son chose the solid blue color (I was pushing for the alien design). He said that he wanted one to match his backpack.

Developed by two moms (Tammy Pelstring and Amy Hemmert) the Laptop Lunch Kit helps families improve lunchtime nutrition and reduce waste. And since they believe that healthy kids come from healthy communities, they donate a portion of profits to schools and environmental organizations.

The Laptop Lunch Benito Carrier Version can be purchased online at It retails for $19.95. Additional accessories, like the Benito Box inner containers, can be purchased on-line as well.
