What's the best way to pack my four year old's lunch and snacks?

We're looking for something she can open and close independently, is reusable, is non-toxic and preferably not plastic and does a good job containing the mess. Ideally she should be able to distinguish between her snacks and lunch without opening the containers.
Being able to open and close it herself is most important. She doesn't have the finger strength to open most containers.
Containing mess is a close second as everything we send to school comes home including food waste which often creates a huge mess inside her backpack.
