I have packed my daughter’s school lunch for her over the past three years and have seen my share of lunch totes, all of which ended up in the trash. One issue that has occurred with several lunch totes is the zipper getting caught along the inside, essentially ripping and tearing away at the insulation. Then there were the totes that could barely carry enough for snack time, let alone lunch. But what about the lunch totes that are so big I feel as if I am packing lunch for two people? Oh yes, I have seen it all and there hasn’t been a single one that I have found works… that is until now! I recently had the pleasure of working with my daughter on reviewing a lunch tote, more specifically a Milkdot Tote From the Stöh Stripe Collection. I was immediately impressed with this lunch tote upon opening it and realizing how deep the storage space is. I can easily pack my daughter’s snack, lunch, drinks and ice pack without the worry of items getting crushed. The structure of this lunch tote is ideal for younger kids, especially ones like my daughter that take the bus. Backpacks get thrown around, squished and sat on but the Milkdot lunch tote provides enough support so that food isn’t getting destroyed on the way to school. Additionally, there is the perfect little pocket on the outside where she can put some extra cash in case she decides to purchase something at lunch. There is also a very convenient laminated tag where I can place my daughter’s name on the outside of the tote.
As you can see from the image below, this is a very slim and sleek looking tote, while still providing ample amount of space for food and drinks. There is also a magnetic closure at the top that secures the tote shut and makes it easy to carry. My daughter just adores this lunch tote and it has worked out so well the past month. If you are a parent that packs their child’s school lunch and are seeking a tote that will last the entire year, then I highly recommend you take a look at this fantastic collection of lunch totes!
