Everyone likes kids.
Especially moms and dads. Especially when they prepare a yummy, healthy Food for their children. I know this because I’m a mother of two.

Why Cayman Kitchen and Mira lunch food jar is not on the list?
You might wonder why I didn’t include Cayman Kitchen and Mira lunch food jar on my list. The long-term durability of these two models is questionable. You might want to consider better choices for your children for $14.95. Both of the thermoses neither match the expectations of its owners nor showed a long-running service.
Considering the main function of all thermoses – to keep food hot or cold for a defined period of time – makes these two selections anti-heroes for your kids. I wouldn’t suggest you buying Cayman or Mira thermoses just to avoid a waste of time & money.
1. Thermos Funtainer 10 Ounce Food Jar
Thermos brand is my personal favourite. Recently I’ve been in contact with 8 women who have confirmed this choice as the best kids food flask.
The vacuum insulation technology Thermos brand uses is just a thing. Hot remains hot, cold remains cold and even warm remains warm for 6+ hours.
I usually cook chicken soup with noodles and vegetables, so that my children can eat hot soup at lunchtime. Funtainer preserves the temperature of the food in the best possible way, I might tell this for sure because I’ve been using some other thermoses and food jars for kids for the same purpose.
I pack the soup at 6:30 a.m., and it always remains hot at 12.30 p.m. It’s relatively lightweight, has very convenient wide mouth and dimensions. My daughter carries it out in her bag along with books and she’s never had any troubles with the leak.
2. THERMOS FOOGO Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel 10-Ounce Food Jar
The second most reliable and one of the best thermoses for kids. It has two different capacities, 7- and 10-ounce, meaning that parents can choose between different sizes of a portion.
Foogo thermos lunch box for kids uses vacuum insulation technology that allows storing food under optimal conditions. If you’re going to serve a hot meal, this thermos food jar can keep it hot for 5+ hours. And cold for up to 7 hours!
3. U Konserve 16-Ounce Insulated Food Jar
One of the best thermoses for kids lunches I should say. There are no major disadvantages and big issues. Here’s my full list of advantages and disadvantages:
4. ONEISALL GYBL099 500ML Stainless Steel Thermos with Foldable Spoon and Lunch Bag
Perfect-sized thermos for kids lunches (7 ounces) is here to melt your heart! Some people think 7 ounce is a bit small for one-time kid’s meal, but personally I think it’s just fine.
5. Kuuk Lunch / Soup Container thermos Flask To Go – 17oz
This insulated thermos is a good fit for any kind of drinks and food. I transported salmon soup when was traveling and the soup stayed pretty hot for 6 hours and 20 minutes. Later, I transported green tea and there were no odors from the soup.
Buying this model of a lunch box for kids will guarantee you to receive a full satisfaction with a couple of minor minuses described in the Cons.
6. LunchBots Thermal 16 oz.
This is one of the best kids thermoses because it’s relatively big, substitutes a bowl perfectly & fits in any type of kid’s bag. However, there are some disadvantages of this model.
7. Thermos Funtainer 12 Ounce Bottle
This thermoі lunch box is a real hit among children and even adults. Having a durable Stainless Steel building, this thermos might survive anything: smashes, dropping, hitting, etc.
It has a push button on a lid and a really convenient sipper straw to make it easier for you to consume the content. 12-ounce capacity allows preserving desirable amount of food: less or more.
