Best Back-to-School Lunch Bags for 2011
The countdown is officially on for back-to-school. What should you look for in a good lunchbox? Well, a lunchbox should be well insulated to avoid any leaks, should help keep food intact (nothing worse than a smooshed PB&J) and should be easy to carry with straps and/or handles. You also get bonus points if it attaches to your child's backpack or fits well inside of it so that they don't forget it at school with rotting food (ick).
Here's a look at our top picks for lunchboxes that are durable, will last the whole year long and are super-duper cute!

We love this bento-style lunch box because it keeps the sandwich away from the carrot sticks...just like they like! Plus, they get to decorate it all their own. Goodbyn Bento Box, $24.95, at Landofnod.com.
