Making a decent kids school lunch is not as easy as it sounds. The days of a simple ham sandwich in a gladwrap are over, instead school mums are now expected to serve a variety of (healthy) foods conveniently packaged in reusable containers or pouches. But where to start? What do you pack for your little students, how much should you give them and how do you store it neatly and safely? Let Whimsychild take the hassle out of lunches with the exciting new Yumbox:
The Yumbox ($34.95, available in Framboise Pink and Pomme Green) is a clever lunchbox solution that encourages healthy eating. The leak proof container opens up to reveal a removable clear insert that is divided in five food compartments, each able to hold a 1/2 cup content. The compartments represent the different food groups making it a breeze to serve your child a healthy and complete lunch (Little bonus: one small compartment for a tasty dip or yummy treat in the middle).
Simply fill the five spots with grains, dairy, fruit, vegetables and protein and voila, you’re done! With all the different food groups covered you can be confident your little bundles of energy have all they need to keep going all day. The innovative Yumbox lid is designed to seal each compartment separately so foods won’t get mixed or leak, yay for a dairy serve of yoghurt or a fruit serve of apple sauce!
Aside from the fact that Yumbox obviously promotes a varied and healthy diet and teaches children (and parents) about portion control it is also an environment friendly product. The lunchboxes are made from high quality food safe materials and are BPA and Phthalate free. At the same time by using a Yumbox for your lunch you are eliminating the need for disposable sandwich bags, wraps and foil so you are not adding any waste to landfill.
The Yumbox is super hot in the US right now and hip mums are having a hard time getting their hands on one of these fabulous lunchboxes. The first order of Yumbox lunchboxes has arrived on Australian shores this month and they will no doubt sell like hot cakes, especially with Christmas just around the corner. Luckily you’re one of the first Aussie mums to hear about them and you can order your Yumbox today at Whimsychild so you can be sure you won’t miss out.
