I was searching on Amazon for some must have lunch boxes and accessories for Ava this year. I always love seeing what I can find. Here are some things I thought were neat as well as things we use everyday in her lunchbox. I also did some research to compare the Bentgo and Yumbox lunch boxes.

Now the question to go with a Bentgo or the YumBoxScreen Shot 2018-08-04 at 6.01.17 AMAfter researching both this is what I have discovered…


  • Leakproof
  • Great Portion sizes.
  • Dishwasher and microwaveable safe.

  • I like that they have different compartments and tray options you can purchase.

Big differences right? Haha…I don’t think you could go wrong with either one but after reading the reviews I did see that the Yumbox is a little easier for little kids to open on their own where as the Bentgo box requires some assistance for the little ones. I also love that the Yumbox has different compartments and tray options you can purchase. Right now, Ava isn’t into sandwiches so this one would work best for her, but when she becomes a sandwich eater I might get her this one.

Another item that I discovered were these reusable juice boxes.

And that’s a wrap! What are some of your favorite lunch boxes or accessories?

POST UPDATE 7/27/2019:

This year I found the Bentgo Lunch box on sale during Amazon Prime Days and we purchased this lunch box for Ava.
