    Lunch boxes

    The lunch box, also referred to as a lunch pail or lunch kit, is a container meant to store a meal for consumption, usually at work or school. The essential idea of a food container has been around for a very long time, but it wasn't until people began using tobacco tins to haul meals in the early 20th century, followed by the use of lithographed images on metal, that the containers became a staple of youth, and in turn, a marketable product in the eyes of manufacturers.
