YumBox and Lunchbox Love Notes Review

My youngest daughter was sent a Yumbox by EatWell-UK to review and she absolutely loves it! There's two designs, Classic and Panino, we tried the Panino as she thought it would suit her school packed lunches better than the classic design.

The Yumbox comes in a wide variety of colours and is very sturdy, as well as being easy for small hands to open.  It also fits into most standard insulated lunch bags.

The Yumbox has a removable tray which has an illustrated guide to help you pack healthy portions of different foods.  Handy for ensuring a balanced lunch when in a rush, and also good for avoiding a lengthy debate with children about how much of each food group they should be having.

The Classic Yumbox tray is divided into five ½ cup portions of the key food groups: Fruit, Vegetable, Grains, Protein, Dairy. Plus a small well for a dip or a treat.

The Panino Yumbox tray is divided into a large (2 cups) portion (perfect for a sandwich or salad), 2 (1/2 cup) portions and a dip well.

Even better, the Yumbox has a leak proof lid that also means that food will not cross the portion sections.  I am so glad that it means there's no need for numerous plastic bags, multiple containers, clingfilm and snack packs, everything is contained in the one leakproof box. 

The Yumbox can be packed the night before, the silicone lid keeps everything fresh, if it is stored in the fridge overnight.


We were also sent some LunchboxLove notes. The handy 12 pack of cards has positive messages and trivia on them, you pop them into your child's lunch bag to remind them you are thinking of them throughout the day.  I thought my 9yo might be a bit old for the cards but she was delighted with them, as was one of my older daughters.



Eat-Well-UK was set up by Bouncy Jam who are importers and distributors of a range of unique and stylish products including Yumbox (the leak-proof lunchbox) and the Tidy Table Tray (bringing babies to the table).  There's a fab blog on their site along with a wealth of useful lunch and dining products for both adults and children alike.  Do take a look.

  1. Such a great article, the Yumbox Lunchboxes are the best. I agree with what you mentioned about the silicone lid keeping everything fresh which makes it easier to pack their lunches the night before.
