Does anyone know of any insulated bento boxes/jars with either stainless steel or glass containers? I've been searching forever a plastic-free lunch box for my toddler to take to day care. All the Zojirushi/Tigger/Thermos have stainless steel thermos but their inside compartment containers are all plastic. Why don't they make the containers with stainless steel or glass?! Anyone have any ideas?

Is glass really a great idea for toddlers at a day care? I'd understand if you said that your child would be careful with it, but there must be others.

I know this is an older thread but - how about a tiffin? Those are stainless steel.

I know this doesn't directly answer your question, but Pottery Barn has some new insulated thermos containers that are short, more like a bowl than the cup, that look awfully nice. You could pack the hot items you want to send it that, perhaps separating foods with silicone muffin cups. Put inside a traditional lunch bag with other goodies.

+ Lunch bots is a great company:
+ Kids Konserve:
+ To Go Ware:
+ Fresh Baby:
+ New Wave:
+ Eco LunchBox:

If all the containers were metal or glass, I think the fear is that they would be too hot to handle.

I also saw this one today, you can keep it cold, but not hot:
