The Perfect Bento Box for Travel Snacks

Packing food for car trips, plane rides, and train travel is one of the easiest ways to save money and eat more healthfully when you’re on vacation. But the actual packing can be a bit of a pain — especially when you’re bringing a variety of foods.

While zippered plastic bags are easy to nestle into the nooks and crannies of your carry-on bag, you can end up with smushed sandwiches, leaky fruits, and lots of trash. That’s why we love packing travel snacks in a bento box like this smart cube.

One box has space for a sandwich, as well as two other separate, airtight compartments that are perfect for a host of snacks. Pack one for each member of the family, so there’s no fighting from the backseat about who got more popcorn or potato chips.

Admittedly, these can be a little bulky for plane travel, but you can always use them for bringing back delicate souvenirs on the return trip as well.
