Review: Yumbox (Bento Box)

Review: Yumbox (Bento Box)
I think that most of the parents in my son's preschool have become competitive when it comes to packing good lunches for their children and I may be partly to blame. I miss my son when he is at school, so I like to make fun lunches that I know will put a smile on his face. I make a lot of dinosaur sandwiches and give him a variety of foods to balance his meal. Other children see his sandwiches, so then other parents think that it is a cool idea and dinosaur sandwiches quickly spread throughout the class.  My latest trendy lunch idea is to use a Yumbox to provide my son with a fun and balanced variety of foods.  Yumbox is absolutely adorable and my son loves it.   (My husband is even jealous - he wants a Yumbox too!)

Yumbox comes in fun colors like Franboise Pink or Pomme Green. My son loves the bright green color! Check it out below.

 Yumbox is easy to open and close. You can see the little blue latch. The inside is the best part. There are little compartments for proteins, grains, vegetables, fruits, and dairy. There is also a little bonus space in the middle.  I love that this Bento box is so detailed.  It is excellent quality, so it should last us for many years. Not only does it help to guide me to prepare my son's balanced lunches, but it also reminds him daily that there are different types of foods that are important for him to eat. He loves to eat his food and to reveal the image that is under the food in each compartment.
There is a lot of room to use your imagination with Yumbox. Here are a couple examples of cute lunches from Yumbox.
My son loves his Yumbox and I wouldn't be surprised if other children in his class also have them in the coming weeks since fun lunch ideas spread quickly!
Do you know someone that would love a Yumbox?

  18. I love this lunch box and am going to try it out for my 5-year old. We have been using a different bento-style lunch box for a few years, but it is fun to freshen things up and this seems easier to open. Also, as a dietitian, I love that it reminds you to pack a little bit of each food group and how the pictures show the kids the importance of this too. Great product!

  19. I love this concept, maybe my kids would eat what I pack them because it's more appealing - thanks!

  22. I'm looking at this for my kids,3 and 5 years old, Are they really good at the leak proof thing? or have you noticed some spillage from each compartment?

    1. I've tried Greek Yogurt and it worked perfectly - it didn't mix or leak with anything.

  25. Thank you so much for this review. My son is about to start preschool, and he is autistic. Therefore, he is super duper picky about foods not touching on his plate, and likes them to be separated from each other. He's also ÜBER obsessed with the color green. He wants everything he owns to be green, greener, and THE GREENEST! This shade is perfect for him. My heart is SO happy right now to have stumbled (quite accidentally) upon this review. You're a life saver. Thank you! <3

  27. Will I have to buy a lunch box or will it do okay stuffing it in a backpack?

  28. We usually put our son's inside of an insulated lunchbox with an icepack.
