Since school is right around the corner, as well as cooler weather(hopefully), choosing a good insulated container for your kid’s school lunch is important! There’s so many things to take into consideration when choosing the right one. First and foremost, how easy is it for my child to open at school, by him/herself? Does it keep the food warm?
