We’ve done some research and found the perfect products to pack your snacks. Check out the “Sistema Klip-It Lunch Cube Max To Go Bento Box” from The Container Store. It’s divided into three sections so you can organize your snacks. It has a lid that’s made of silicone, creating an airtight seal. It’s microwavable, refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher friendly, and your food will be kept fresh all day.

Next up, we have a product that is super convenient if your packed food requires utensils. We have another goodie from The Container Store, and it’s the “Built NY Stainless Steel Utensil Set”. Packed with a stainless-steel knife, fork, and spoon, it’s perfect for a meal on the go. It’s also dishwasher safe, so clean up is always a breeze!

Lastly, you need a place to store your containers and utensils. We found the “best overall lunchbox” according to All Recipes- the L.L. Bean Insulated Lunch Bag. Coming in at a size of 9 ½ inches by 7 inches, it only costs $19.95. It's the ideal size for your snacks at an affordable price.
