My search for the best leakproof lunchbox started a few years ago after my kids were coming home day after day with items spilled into one another from lunch boxes that leaked.
Finding the perfect lunchbox isn’t easy, but I’ve got a lot of experience looking and finally found several that fit out criteria:
- Must open easy for little hands
- Must truly be leakproof — nothing can go from one section to another
- Must fit inside a regular-sized lunch bag
- Easy to clean
I set out to find the perfect leakproof lunchbox and have now found several that work great!
Best Leakproof Lunchbox
My most popular video ever is for our favorite leakproof lunchbox: The Yumbox. Seriously, I can’t say enough good things about this lunchbox. We’ve used the Yumbox for years now and still love it. The Yumbox is sturdy, easy to open and close with little hands, dishwasher safe, and pretty much indestructible. We’ve had two for years! Watch my video on the best Bento Box Lunchboxes.
Great Leakproof Lunchbox
A great, frugal alternative to the Yumbox lunchbox is this Ziploc leakproof lunchbox. This lunchbox is awesome. It’s affordable and really works! The only downside is that eventually it wears out and you have to replace it. I’d recommend buying an extra pack and keeping it in reserve.
Secret inside scoop: Two years ago the company stopped selling this version and just recently put it back on the market.
Other Good Leakproof Lunchboxes
The Pack TOGO lunchbox is a great size and leakproof. With three sections you have enough space to put different items and have them not combine.
7-Pack – Plastic Divided Box with 3 Compartments. I like this set because it’s colorful and comes in multiples for a low price point. And it’s still dishwasher and microwave safe. I love the colors of these ccontainers.

This leakproof lunchbox is an easy size for little ones and is in the $10 range.
