Lunch boxes

Choose a lunch box or bento box from our unique designs for kids and adults. Protect school packed lunches with a jolly kid's lunch box, and for grown-up snacks consider an adult bento box in a bright design.


What's the difference between lunch boxes and bento boxes?


Bento boxes originate from Japan and are reusable food containers often with cutlery and different compartments to keep food separate. Lunch boxes can be as simple as a box with a lid to store your lunch in, but many have extra compartments and trays.


Our bento boxes include cutlery, two separate compartments and an elastic strap to hold them securely together. Basic lunch boxes are strong, reusable boxes with a push-on lid, but our lunch boxes with trays include a handy divider to keep snacks separate and a clip to secure the lid.


Need separate storage for mini nibbles? Try our selection of snack pots. To keep contents cool or warm, consider our insulated lunch bags made from recycled plastics.

Kids' lunch box tips

It can be difficult to keep kids happily eating in a healthy manner, so here are some top tips to help:


Classic snacks with healthy ingredients

Most children won't hesitate to munch on a classic snack like crisps, cookies or sweets. So get creative and put your healthy foods in fancy dress. Turn apples into crisps, bananas into cookies and chickpeas into mini meteors.


It's simpler and quicker than you think. Read our healthy snack ideas for kids post to find out how. Give your healthy treats the wow-factor with our fabulous reusable snack bags.


Fun presentation

Food needs to match the fancy packaging. Nobody wants to open a brilliant cheetah lunch box only to find a boring cheese sandwich within.


Give snacks some visual sizzle. Dip sliced fruit into chocolate and sprinkles. Create spiral sandwich bites and use little cookie cutters to create fun veg mini feasts. To find out how, read our fun lunch box ideas article.


Feed their fascination

With so many marvellous designs to choose from it's good to occasionally go the extra mile and match the contents with the wrapper.


If your child is fascinated with space, stuff our Space Age lunch box with treats that are out of this world. You could include alien jellies, Jupiter coloured cookies, and spaceship shaped sandwiches.
