One last giveaway to wrap up my back to school season giveaways. Yumbox was kind enough to send their 6 compartment box to me for review and also agreed to sponsor a giveaway. The Yumbox is a leak-proof compartmentalized bento style lunchbox.
The lunchbox is made up of two pieces - the outer shell and the inner removable tray. The box has one easy to open latch in the front. The lid has an integrated silicone seal. This is the magic of the Yumbox that enables the box to be leak-proof. The removable inner tray has a circus design printed on the bottom along with suggestions of what to pack in that compartment. Categories are dairy, protein, grains, and fruit. The small circle compartment can be used for a dip or small treat. The Yumbox is BPA free, dishwasher safe, and the inner tray is microwave safe. For more information visit the Yumbox FAQs page.
For our debut Yumbox lunch, my son and I decided to go with an airplane theme :)
Packed up in our Yumbox: Vanilla yogurt with blue sanding sugar sprinkled on top, rocket crackers, blueberries, turkey & cheese airplane sandwiches, mini Oreos, yellow pepper rings, and watermelon radishes. The airplane is from this set of cutters.
Over the course of the summer, I found myself reaching for the 6 compartment Yumbox frequently! It is so easy to pack lunch quickly in these boxes. Great for busy mornings and the "map" for packing nutritional lunches that's printed on the bottom of the tray is super handy when mom is still half asleep. Below are some of the 5 minute lunches I made over the summer.
Leftover cheeseburger lunch - pineapple chunks, Cheez-Its, cherry tomatoes, 1/2 cheeseburger, Rainier cherries, and a dill pickle spear cut to fit into the circle compartment. This lunch is dressed up with a fruit fork pick and baran.
Mexican fiesta lunch - cheese stick, black beans, grilled chicken, tortilla chips, blueberries, and Rainier cherries.
Snacky lunch - sausage, peanut butter cup, Babybel cheese, Annie's farm cheese crackers, red cherries, ranch dressing, and baby carrots. I tucked a little fork into the compartment with the sausage.
Breakfast for lunch - rocket shaped cheese crackers, red cherries, champagne grapes, mini pancakes, syrup, and pastrami.
We really love this lunchbox and I cannot think of any negatives. It worked flawlessly for us all summer long. Yumbox is also available in a Panino version allowing a full sandwich or burrito to be packed in one larger compartment. I had previously purchased the Yumbox Panino, click here to see some lunches packed inside it. The panino Yumbox was one of the lunchboxes used in my book Happy Bento. In light of this, the giveaway winner will receive one Yumbox and a copy of Happy Bento. For more information about my book click here. Yumbox is available for purchase on the Yumbox website* and on Amazon.
