Review: Bentgo Kids Lunchbox

My older son started kindergarten this month and since it’s full day, mama has to pack him a lunch. As he’s a picky eater, I was worried about what foods to give him and how to pack it. He’s more of a grazer rather than a big eater so I needed a lunchbox that accommodated a variety of foods.

After doing my research, I settled on the Bentgo kids lunchbox. He’s been using it everyday for school and loves it! I really like the durable, food safe construction and the well sized compartments. After using it for a few weeks, I’ve listed the pros and cons that we’ve seen thus far.


  • Outer shell has rubber-coated edges which makes it drop proof.
  • Easy to open and close, especially for little hands.
  • Seal on the lid of the outer shell prevents spills and mixing of food.
  • Removable tray is dishwasher safe and the compartments are easy to clean.
  • 2 year warranty: Bentgo will replace your product if it becomes defective within 2 years of purchase.
  • Purchase with a purpose: they support the non-profit organization Feed the Children.


  • On the heavier side: it weighs slightly over 1lb.
  • Slightly bulky: takes up quite a lot of room in a lunch bag.

A few brands I considered purchasing include the Yumbox, Monbento and Bentology. In the end, the pros of the Bentgo outweighed those of all the other brands.

Leave me a comment on what you use for your child’s lunch box. 🙂
