It can be hard to know which school supplies are just trendy and cute, and which ones are durable and functional. Luckily, this popular lunchbox on Amazon checks both of those boxes. In addition to selling like crazy, it comes in 17 different kid-approved prints that are appropriate for a variety of ages. The best part? It is so slim and easy to pack that it fits perfectly in any backpack. I’m going to be honest with you and say that despite this being aimed at kids ages 3 to 7, I could definitely see myself popping it into a gym or work bag.

In true Bento fashion, this lunch box comes with five compartments that are perfectly sized for different sides or snack items, as well as a sandwich or wrap for a main course. The great thing about the Bento boxes is that you don’t have to worry about sticking to foods that won’t leak because the box claims to be entirely leak proof — so go ahead and include that perfect portion of your child’s favorite yogurt, worry-free.

The portions are actually intended to teach kiddos about balanced meals, which is always a good practice to start early. Another great aspect of this leak-proof design is that it is air-tight, meaning it works to keep your child’s lunch super fresh throughout their school day. One Amazon reviewer purchased the box for her daughter, and described the compartments as “the perfect size for her little fingers and big appetite.”

If you’re worried about the box falling apart when dropped — have no fear — this little lunchbox is super durable. The tough plastic, which is BPA-free, of course, is surrounded by rubber-coated edges that the company says protect the lunch box and its contents when dropped or tossed in a backpack. That’s right, you can feel totally safe slipping this box into your child’s backpack — even if they are prone to tossing it down on any floor or the seat of their school bus.

The box features two kid-friendly latches that make it super easy for little hands to open. As I said before, the box is intended for ages 3 through 7, however there are definitely prints (camo, sharks and polka dots, for example) that make it entirely suitable for older kids (or, ahem, adults).

Finally, you can feel good about purchasing this lunchbox because Bentgo has been a long-time supporter of Feed the Hungry — a nonprofit that provides resources to hungry children and families. Over the years, Bento has donated more than $150,000.

So pack up with as many little snacks as sides as your child can handle and get ready for the school year — it is sure to be a great one with this lunch box in tow.
