Are you part of the bento lunch revolution? I have been teetering on the edge for a while now but I think this product may just be the deciding factor for me. Yup, I’m joining in.
Bento-style lunches had been growing in popularity in recent years, there are a bunch of blogs and products popping up dedicated to creating these lovely little lunches. Now, to contribute to the excitement, Yumbox is available in Australia.
For those of you who haven’t heard of it, bento is lunch made up of lots of little components, presented in a box with separate compartments. The Yumbox is created for exactly this, with one major difference from similar products around. Each compartment is specifically sized and labeled to help parents prepare a perfectly balanced meal. I need this, I sometimes find myself quickly running through the food groups in my mind, vaguely ticking each off, to see if my toddler has had a good food day. Peanut butter counts as a vegetable right?
Apart from the nutritional guidance, the Yumbox has a heap to offer. It is leakproof so you can put anything in the compartments, it’s dishwasher safe, it prevents children from leaving half of every tiny piece of plastic ware at school (why do they do that) and I have it on good authority that it is virtually indestructible.
For those of you not yet at the packing lunches stage, the tray is removable so it can also be used as a nutrition guide for toddler meals at home. You can buy them for $34.95 from Yumbox Australia and shipping is a flat rate of $10.
