8 Bento Boxes to Help You Brown Bag It
Whether you’re assembling a mishmash of leftovers, making a sandwich, or cooking something entirely different, packing a healthy lunch every day can be a challenge. There are plenty of delicious make-ahead meals, and having a meal plan will definitely help, but so will a good lunch container. We love using a bento box to pack lunch because it keeps foods from getting soggy, and it can also help you plan and pack a balanced, portion-controlled meal. There are so many styles and variations of this handy container out there, even just within the editor-favorite Bentgo line. You can take your pick among microwavable models, salad containers, and lunch dividers designed especially for kids.

Case in point: Our eight favorite options, which are listed below.
