It's the start of a new school year, so there's no better time to buy your kiddo a new lunch box. Bento boxes work great for preschool and elementary school kids as the many compartments keep the food separate and organized. Some Bento boxes have only two compartments for larger food items, perfect for middle school and high school kids.


There are also insulated cooler lunch bags that work great for kids of all ages as they're meant to hold individually packed items while keeping food and a drink cool all day. If you go the cooler bag route, you don't need to buy an actual lunch box and a cooler, so that's nice.

Here's the thing though — lunch boxes can be pricey. I rounded up several of Amazon's most popular lunch boxes that are under $15. Check them out below.

This Bento Box With Three Compartments

At just under $15, this popular bento lunch box has three compartments for bigger portions. The box is leakproof with kid-friendly latches. It's microwave and dishwasher safe, which is perhaps the most important aspect of a kids' lunch box (easy cleanup is key). Choose from four colors and two sizes.

The bag comes in 14 color options.
