Whether you’re the PB&J type or prefer a protein-and-greens-packed meal, the right lunch box can help you pack a better lunch. For example, a bento box can prevent food from touching, which in turn can prevent it from getting soggy. But if you’re going to get any bento box, make it Bentgo’s stackable lunch container.

Amazon shoppers rave about the Bentgo Bento Lunch Box. It has two containers with three compartments — one large and two small — plus includes a plastic fork, knife and spoon. The small compartments hold 3/4 cups of food, while the bottom compartment holds up to 2 cups. The containers are stackable, but there’s also an elastic strap for holding them tightly together.

The Bentgo Bento Lunch Box is BPA-free, food-grade plastic safe for the microwave, dishwasher and freezer. You can get it in six different colors, each for $14.99 on Amazon.

A food container that originated in Japan, the bento box is widely used for Japanese school lunches, but can also be found in eateries around the country. More a style of packing a lunch to eat on the go, a bento box isn’t just about the taste of the food — it’s also about the way it’s presented. A beautifully arranged bento box should entice your tastebuds just as much as your eyes.

While bento boxes are now popular all over the world, TikTokers like Jessica Woo and Liza Stian have turned packing bento boxes into viral art.

The only downside is the lack of space for an ice pack. If you have food that needs to remain chilled, you’ll either need to toss the bento box in the fridge at work or pack it with a bagged ice pack for your kiddos.
