We pack lunches for my three kids about 95% of the time. I've always bought them cheap plastic lunchboxes (which break after a year or so), but I'm looking for something that's easier to care for (can go in the dishwasher, etc.) and is durable.


What are some good quality lunchboxes that will LAST?

I always used to buy the soft sided ones that I could find at the grocery store.  You can tell which ones are a little better quality if you feel them.   We used them every day for school lunch.  They would wipe out easily and I would also put them through the washing machine.  They held quite a bit and usually made it the whole school year.  Sometimes even longer than that.  I usually packed a reusable water bottle, but no thermos.

My dh has been using a laptop lunches box. Maybe he is more careful than a child would be but it has been in use 5 days a week year round for a couple of years now and shows very little wear.  It is dishwasher safe. We also have the insulated case for it which is also in very good shape.

I have a "Rambler" lunch tote from Built NY for myself and DD. It was $10 and is made of neoprene (scuba suit material) so it can go in the washing machine which is super helpful!
