Smarter Style: Cool School Lunch Bags

Posted by   + Show Post

My little one is entering Kindergarden this fall (OMG!), and for some reason I'm really excited to help her pick out a new lunch box or bag, because the one she has been taking to nursery school and pre-K for 3 years now is totally gross. So I've been spending some time poking around for cool lunch bag ideas, and here are some of the things I found.

These Garnet Hill bags look colorful and roomy without being too large or seeming heavy. And the reviews are all 5 stars, plus the price is great too, at $18 and change: This store also sells smaller, cheaper bags that are super cute too, but may not be large enough for most school-aged kids needs:

Kmart has a large selection of lunch bags, some of which are on sale when you buy your kids backpack right now, which also come in a large variety of themes and choices. They even have some kids backpacks like the ones featuring the Transformers or Batman at this link, with detachable lunch kits, and you'll only pay $10 for them both right now. sells the Skip Hop Zoo "lunchie" bag collection for younger kids, and I happen to really love their designs The only issue is which one to chose when your kid loves all animals pretty much equally...

Now, if you wanted to get really fancy and personalize your kid's lunch bag, that's an option many online stores offer too (and maybe not a bad idea, I'm starting to think, since my girl loses everything at school). Pottery Barn will personalize, for free, a super cute $19 lunch bag, or a fancier, larger one if you chose. (They offer a wide range of fun patterns and sizes, which I like). Check out their choices here: 

What do you look for, or recommend looking for, in a perfect school lunch bag for kids?

I like the one where there is a zippered, bottom compartment and a zippered top compartment.
