    Planet Box has really good stainless steel lunch boxes but the South Indian in me cringes at the dollar price.
    For my kid I use the Bentgo plastic boxes for sending lunch and snacks.

    Planet box is good one but it leaks if give pasta with marinara sauce. I alternate planetbox (for Sandwiches, nuggets, dry food) and Milton hot lunch box(brought from india for pasta/rice).

    I use thermos containers for lunch. It keeps the food warm. I don't give rice or idly dosa for lunch.
    Sometimes I alternate it with bentgo boxes.

    If you need only stainless steel, I bought one lunch box from Amazon which looks similar to the lunch boxes which we took in our old days. But the quality is good too. Didn't use it for kid's lunch yet.

    I will try to find the link and send it.

    I have all sort of assortment. I use food jars like thermos brand/funtainers ( like 10-15 $ from walmart) and now they have maintays ( 25$) as well. Lunchbox from amazon is very good and expensive. Mira as well, expensive but good.

    For cold foods, I give just plastic bento ones, its easy to carry and open for her. I have those from here there shops.
    I know we indian moms think a lot about plastic /warm foods but I have stopped worry now...based on food types, i pack.
    Insulated loose their heat retain capacity after some time and you can pack only 1 things or dry foods.
    Bentgo brand is good, hard to clean though that style.
    many other online lunchboxes are all cheap.

    I was doing research into this a while ago. From my understanding, even the most expensive bento boxes are not leak proof. You can give dry food in them but anything wet is a no-no.

    Thermos is a good option but my star is my Zojirushi 25 oz food jar. Food is piping hot after 6 hours and the size is perfect for a 10 year and old. You just need to be careful to handwash it and get inside the nooks and crannies of its lid

    @gamma50g, thanks for mentioning Zojirushi brand, expensive side though. You can also get from some chinese/asian grocery stores. In one of my previous team, all the asian co workers had that brand boxes or themos and all sorts. From there i found about this brand and I also own it.
    But I think it has gone much higher now and do not see many options on amazon these days.

    Yup. Zojirushis are pricier compared to Thermoses. However, they also have a longer warranty and retain heat better than thermoses. I personally did not get any of my zojirushis from amazon because of fear of counterfeits. I ordered some of mine directly from zojirushi and got the others through stores with brick and mortar presence.
    P.S. A tip is to keep an eye out for their sale
