Some of our favorite lunch bags for kids get even cuter

My kids have loved Milkdot lunch bags since we first found them. And Milkdot’s brand new styles give us one more reason. Or, three.

Milkdot reusable lunch totes are the right size to shove in multiple bentos and a small water bottle or juice box, complete with a little net pouch on the side for a piece of fruit or a note from you (awwww). The handle makes them easy to carry around. and I really like that the bags are structured, but still soft so I can cram them into a backpack if need be.

I love the new striped collection of Stöh lunchbags, which are sophisticated enough for grade-schoolers outgrowing the cuter designs, but might look fresher, longer than the solids, especially if you opt for a ligher color. I also really like the collaboration with illustrator Matthew Langille, whose style you might recognize from Marc Jacobs projects.

As for us, I won’t be getting a new lunch tote from Milkdot myself, only because the cute lunchbox my daughter picked out last year is still going strong. And that’s saying something. –Liz

Milkdot Lunch Totes are available at their website, or in a boutique near you.

    Are they machine washable? After being spoiled b the Dabbawalla bags I won’t ever buy any lunch bag that isn’t. In fact I would never buy any other bag if they made adult size totes and backpacks!

    I don’t think so Charissa–you can wipe them clean with soapy water but the inside is insulated, so I wouldn’t put them in a machine. And yes, Dabbawalla are great! Not structured in the same way but we’re also big fans and they squish down so nicely when empty.
