Finding just that right lunch box is important to children The Associated Press A fun part of back-to-school shop- ping is the search for the perfect lunch container. Should it be square with a zip, with space for lots of tasty items? A smart little purse-like affair? A sack? And what about the pattern? When you're going to be spending every lunch hour with it,it's impor- tant to get it right. This fall,there are lots of new designs for students old and young, with thoughtful details and add-ons meant to make lunchtime pleasant and palatable. • Form and function: Karen Cicero,contributing editor at Parents magazine,reminds par- ents and caregivers to keep kids' ages and grade levels in mind when shopping for lunchboxes. "If you have a preschooler or kindergartener,you'll want a box that's easy to open and close,"she says."For middle schoolers,you want to make sure it's large enough to hold their lunch,an ice pack,and snacks they'll need for after-school practices." Also consider how easy the box is to clean,and whether it hooks on your child's backpack,"which is a good feature so it doesn't get lost or separated,"Cicero said. Many lunch-kit collections can be coordinated with backpacks,water bottles,and hot or cold insulated containers. • Bento boxes: Bento boxes are big among ele- mentary and middle school kids, says Cicero.Popular for years in Asia,bento boxes are made of plas- tic or steel fitted with various-size compartments. That separation keeps foods from becoming a pile of crumbs or mush. And with just one container to wash and re-use,there's often less waste. No more zippered baggies,plastic wrap or foil to pollute the environ- ment. There are built-in bento contain- ers in many of this season's lunch- boxes. Or Bentgo's colorful,leak-proof bento containers come in several varieties,including an insulated bowl with a silicone-lined snap lid See LUNCH BOX,Page 26
