Readers of my blog will know that we are forever outdoors.

Part of our everyday routine involves Evie and myself going on outdoor adventures. By 10am we are outside, rain or shine.

We always make sure to pack a little lunchbox for Evie before we set out, as we never know where the day is going to takes us, and we are rarely ever home to eat lunch. I love the spontaneity of our days together.

Normally we take a couple of little lunch boxes in a bag, but I must admit, they’ve never been very practical and quite often we get leakages and find a messy lunch bag. Uh oh!

Recently I was approached by a company called Yumbox, who asked us to review one of their lunch boxes. After having a peek at them online, we were feeling pretty excited to try them out.

We’ve been using our Yumbox for about a month now, and to say that they are perfect is an understatement. We certainly will never be going back to the boxes we used before! Here are some reasons why:


First up, how vibrant is the colour?

The lunch boxes come in two designs, panino (with five compartments) and panino (with four). They also come in a whole rainbow of of colours, from blues, to pinks, to purples. We found it really hard to settle on this pink one.

Yumbox have many features. They’re designed to make packing nutritional lunches easy, to help with portion control, to be child friendly, green, stylish, oh and leak proof!

Our favourite feature of the lunchbox (and oh my there are many) are the cute little illustrations and food group wells, that are found on the tray inside.


There are five sections, one for each food group, and they make filling the lunchbox not only fun, but also it’s really easy to pack a healthy nutritional lunch.

The labelling is great for older children as it teaches them how to make up their own balanced meal without help, and is also perfect for managing portion control. 

We love that this lunchbox is leakproof. It means we can take yoghurts, dips or salad dressings with us, with no worries as they won’t leak into other sections. Plus because of the sealed lid, we can do away with the need for cling film or any other packaging.

It’s so frustrating when you get to your destination to find a dip, a sauce or a yoghurt, has made everything really soggy.


We’ve been really enjoying filling up the different sections with healthy foods for Evie, and she’s loved helping. If you’re stuck for ideas for lunches, be sure to check out my post ‘A Week Of Toddler Lunches‘ for inspiration.

We adore everything about this lunchbox. From the colour to the design. A huge plus is that it has an easy open latch, so Evie can use use it without our help.


Lastly, the Yumbox is so easy to wash. Not only is it dishwasher safe, but the inner tray is removable making it incredibly easy to clean and rinse out.

Here’s a quick reminder of some of the features:

  • Packing nutritionally balanced meals is quick and easy
  • Colours and styles to suit all ages
  • Leakproof lid to pack yoghurts and dips without it getting into other sections
  • Healthy portion control
  • Perfect for picky eaters
  • The silicone lid keeps food fresh, even overnight
  • Easy to open but secure when shut

Retailing at £25, we think it’s more than worth the price. It’s something we can use everyday and has years of life in it.

Plus the great thing about having a Yumbox, is that you can eat your lunch in any spot you desire. We’re definitely making the most of this feature!

    These are such a good idea. I always end up with a bag full of separate little boxes to stop everything going soggy. I bet the children love the illustrations too!

  6. April 26, 2016 / 9:54 am

    I like the fact it’s divided into the important foods you need for you children. Very handy and it reminds you what they need

    I love how the sections are sealed when you close the lid. It means I can have crisps in one section and my homemade yogurt in another!
