Back-to-school means new notebooks, new backpacks, and, of course, a new lunchbox. But this year, trade plastic superheroes and disposable paper bags for lunch accessories and kits that mean less waste, more durability, and a prime spot for your kid at the coolest lunch table in the cafeteria. A packed lunch can also be much cheaper and healthier than the standard french fry heavy school fare.

From compartmentalized boxes and reusable stainless steel containers to organic cloth napkins and the classic spork, these products will send your little one to the lunch table in style. And don't rule out the office -- many of these items work there too.
