I want to officially declare that my 3 year old is rather strange. She gets so excited when it comes to lunch boxes so I was naturally very pleased to accept a Classic Yumbox V2 in Framboise Pink colour for
me her to review. I mean look at this face…
So the Yumbox is all about making lunches fun yet helping to educate children, and adults, on portion control. They have pre-illustrated trays to help get a balanced healthy meal. Their are two different styles of the Yumbox, the classic which we have and the Panino options. The classic has 5 sections for the key food groups and then a smaller one for a dip or sweet treat. The Panino style is more suited for an older child with a bigger appetite having 1 large section for sandwiches and then the two smaller and a dip space too.
The tray is removable and is top-shelf safe in the dishwasher. I prefer to hand wash the entire lunch box but obviously that choice is yours. The Yumbox has just one single lid that is leak proof for each individual section meaning you can safely store baked beans without worrying that it may mix up with the banana for example. You can also buy extra trays to save time during the week or preparing in advance.
P2 was so excited and kept saying thank you to me. She was desperate to use it and on the day it arrived we were so busy that we had cooked a pretty simple, junk type, dinner so please do not judge the food inside this Yumbox. Of course P2 ate her sweet treat first but I actually enjoyed being able to portion control better rather than just plopping some food on a plate. I think the whole experience excited P2 more than ever because she finished all of her dinner except one or two pieces of banana. She was engaged and enjoyed the dinner process. She found opening and closing the Yumbox really easy too.
The Yumbox costs about £25 which is definitely worth every penny. I have teamed up with Yumbox and am able to offer one in a giveaway so don’t forget to enter below!
