Hi, My eldest is starting primary school this year and I would love recommendations for a lunch box that will be easy for her to use, easy to clean & is durable. Thanks.

  • The nude lunchboxes are great and long lasting.

  • You just need to check out your local lunchbox aisle in your supermarket. They’re all pretty much what you’re asking for

  • Take your child with you to pick one suitable.
    My children are not school age yet but when the time comes I would want them to choose one they like, know how to use & will provide enough room for their recess snack & lunch sandwich.

  • Tupperware or nude are really good

  • SMASH are good!

  • take her shopping nothing worse than mum picking out something she hates

  • It doesn’t matter about brands just take her with you and make sure she us able to open and close it easily,I gave seen lots of children with the nude food lunch boxes struggle with opening and closing them so I think that us the most important thing to look at rather then the brand . Also consider what you will be putting in it and how much room they gave to store it,and how heavy or bulky it is for them to carry.

  • my kids love wraps .

  • there are some good comments here

  • My kids have zip up cooler ones. I find they are easier for them to open and you don’t have to worry about them losing the lids.

  • I recommend to get a hard one, I find the soft ones useless for fruit and veg. I use a hard Nudie one for my girl, it has 1 big compartment and 2 small ones in the lid, and a separate compartment for the included ice brick. It is great and didnt cost much at all.

  • We love the nudie mover range, and it’s inexpensive for when it gets lost or damaged.

  • Coles, Woolworths, Big W, Officeworks have a wide range. Look for durability, ease of opening, separate compartments, room for a freezer brick or popper.

  • We love our Nude Food Movers Rubbish Free lunchbox! It has 3 compartments, and we fill it with all sorts of goodies for our son. He never goes hungry and he loves the little containers.

  • There are so many out there, I found a good Velcro opening one that had a separate apartment on the bottom to put an ice brick in
