Unique Lunch Boxes for Teens

Lunch Box Round Up for Middle and High School!

Even though summer has just really gotten underway, it’s nice to be able to cross one or two things off of your Back to School shopping list right now!  For my children, choosing their back packs and lunch boxes is of high importance!  And while they’re looking for something cool and unique that makes a “statement,” I’m still lobbying for durability.

In an effort to please both parties, here’s a review of lunch boxes for middle and high schoolers that make the “grade!” For younger children, see Lunch Box Round Up for Preschool and Elementary School.
