Yumbox Review | Real Mum Review

We’ve been focusing recently on ensuring the meals we make for the kids are healthy and nutritious and part of that is an overhaul of the lunches they take to daycare. So we were very happy to do this Yumbox Review.

Yumboxes Review

I researched online and came across the Yumbox sectioned Lunch Box at Biome, a fabulous store offering products that help you live a waste-free, toxin free and ethical life. These three factors are so high on my agenda, especially after my breast cancer diagnosis. The Biome Yumbox range has a few different colours.

A Pink Yumbox

I’ve seen a few of the other kids using these best bento box style lunchboxes and loved how quirky they looked. They’re such a lovely way of making lunchtime fun for little ones.

We’ve been looking for the best kids lunch boxes with compartments for the kids for a while now and I was so inspired when I read my friend Kylie’s Yumbox Lunch Box review post. Kylie blogs at Kidgredients which is all about kids food and the best lunch box ideas – go check her out if you don’t already as it’s such an inspiring site! I love her annual lunch box reviews and different Yumbox reviews.

Yumbox Lunch Boxes really are the ultimate kid friendly best bento lunch box containers. Plus they make the best adult lunch box too as they’re so adaptable! No need to get a Yumbox for adults, just use your kids’ ones!

Having a divided lunch box for each food group helps me give them a balanced meal. The key food groups are fruit, vegetables, grains, protein and dairy. There’s even a little extra section for a treat or dip.

About Yumboxes

These children’s bento lunch boxes for adults too are also perfect for road trips as well as daycare. The interior kids bento box is easily removed which makes cleaning the boxes very easy to do. They’re 100% BPA free, Phthalates-free, CPSIA and FDA compliant. They’re a leak proof lunch box too as they’re air tight so this makes them a green lunch box too. Leak proof lunch containers help keep their day care bag clean.

They measure 21.5cmx15cmx5cm and weigh 600g.

Using the Yumbox Lunch Boxes is really helping me get the portion sizes right for each of my kids and we’re really trying to waste less food but still give them a balanced meal. They’re the best toddler lunch box I’ve used so far and tick all of our boxes.

Here’s an example of what I’ve been sending them to daycare with:

An example of the Yumbox lunches my kids take to day care.

My kids are loving using a multi compartment lunch box and my 3 year old daughter particularly feels very grown up using hers! I’ve also started putting sultanas into the little middle section as a sweet treat. This is definitely my fave compartment lunch box.

Do let me know if you’d like me to post more Yumbox lunch ideas.

We got them a Yum Box in Pink and Aqua Turquoise – they’re so pretty! I want to get them a Yumbox Snack Box next.

Yumbox lunch boxes make a great kid or adult bento box – have you tried any other bento box containers?

    Blueberries are the ideal food to pack,

    My ab-fav lunchbox filler is Veggie Rice Paper Rolls – colourful and fun, the kids devour them and they are sooo easy to make. Thing 1 (9 going on 19) and Thing 2 (8 1/2) loves making their own too – which means it is less work for me to do and it teaches them valuable life skills.

  18. Shannon Wotton

  30. Mikaela C

    Carrots and celery cut into sticks,
    go perfect with some hummus dip,

  36. Jess F
    / 8:53 am

    Blueberries our our daughters favourite. I’m considering buying farmer direct as we go through them by the bucket load! Meanwhile the wallet loves how they are in season!

  37. Samara McRae
    / 7:35 am

    I make a healthy musli slice. My favourite thing to add as my son thinks he is getting a treat, when really they are super healthy and packed full of goodness.

    I love adding snap peas. Sweet and healthy.

  42. Anna T
    / 9:03 am

    My kids just love my home-made spinach pie, or “Spanakopita” in Greek. I omit the layers of filo & butter & opt for a healthier shortcrust pastry instead. It is packed with flavour & nutrition & is always a winner.

  43. Debra
    / 8:57 pm

    Pizza scrolls with lots of hidden vegies, they’re too delicious for the kids to realise they are healthy

  44. Benjamin Travia
    / 1:56 pm

    A wholegrain sandwich in the shape of a face; cucumber eyes, tomato mouth, carrot lips, celery nose and, if I’m feeling artistic, quinoa freckles.

  45. Nichole McKee
    / 7:47 am

    Little healthy sangers made with love but with a twist because we use these cute shaped sandwich cutters, and the kiddies just gobble them up instead of them going to waste.

  46. Rachel K
    / 2:24 am

    A sticky note message for a healthy mind on their sandwich! A funny cartoon or saying I know will put a smile on their face.

  47. Kim M
    / 11:25 pm

  48. Kate Tunstall, The Less-Refined Mind

    My son loves Apple as a snack!

  56. Tess Howard
    / 11:06 am

    They get bored so easily, there is never one food that keeps them happy. Instead we focus on what is in season and fresh….go pick our own fruit nearby or grow or own veggies. They have variety and learn about seasonal goodness.

  57. Tanene
    / 12:23 pm

    Homemade cereal bars are always a hit and theyre so simple to make :)

  58. Glenda Smith
    / 3:24 pm

    Slices of fresh apple that have been dipped into lemon juice to stop them from oxidising with a small tub of smooth peanut butter to dip the apple slices into.

    The kids love making and eating homemade vegan friendly fruit roll ups! Pure fruit and our dehydrator create lunchbox magic that’s healthy and kid friendly!

  60. xzavia green
    / 11:49 am

    I classify healthy as nothing artificial and no preservatives. As real as I can with the least amount of packaging. I’m not always perfect but do my best. The kids love a tuna salad or homemade humus with vegetable sticks.

  61. Ashley Beech
    / 10:57 am

    Carrot sticks; they love them,
    doesn’t take much effort to prepare
    and cheap!

    I love making small wraps, cut into circles and berries/watermelon squares.
    My daughter loves that every day. variations between sandwiches and wraps and seasonal fruit, and/or crackers hommus and cheese.

  65. adrienne harries
    / 7:49 pm

    fresh fruit is the best
    the choice she makes above the rest
    strawberries, watermelon and orange too
    Along with sandwich, crackers and a muffin will do

  66. James Riddle
    / 6:52 pm

    Apart from fruit, I like to treat my girls to a homemade mix of popcorn, sultanas, dried apricots and figs!

  67. Susannah
    / 4:07 pm


  68. Kasey Evans
    / 2:33 pm

    When ripe I always add home grown sugar banana’s to the kids lunch boxes, they’re the perfect size for small hands & taste amazing!

  69. Sacha Pech
    / 1:48 pm

    Shredded vegetable fritters; they’re so delicious, and colourful the kids don’t even know they’re eating vegetables! Mwahahaaha.

  70. Jean Rutherford
    / 1:17 pm

    Fruit cut up so that it is easy to eat. Our favourite fruit is pineapple and it carries well.

  71. Tracey Drescher
    / 12:53 pm

    My kids love Boiled Eggs as a snack in their lunch box. Easy to cook and full of protein for them

  72. Alex
    / 12:12 pm

    We’re very lucky as Master 5 loves pretty much everything. But carrot is always popular, both in his lunchbox and as a snack at home. Which is great, as when he snacks on a carrot, so do I!

  73. sarah
    / 11:34 am

    Home made sausage rolls are a lunchbox hit in this house. I get the kids involved by getting them to grate vegetables, mix the chicken mince and roll out the sausage rolls. It’s fun and the kids don’t complain about the grated vegetables, as they’re too proud of what they’ve made.

  74. Paula Harris
    / 7:04 am

    Apples in the Winter and they love frozen oranges in Summer

  75. Preeya Rook
    / 6:31 am

    Hi Mim, my favorite lunch snacks are strawberry and cream cheese or cheese and apple sandwiches. I am such a huge fanof Biome too. Eco friendly and great designs, local (Qld) and great value. Thanks for sharing your review of Yumbox

  76. jody buhagiar

  82. Anthea Cornish
    / 6:21 pm

    cheese triangles are great,
    cherry tomatoes and sultanas
    Healthy treats are essential
    to help my child learn and play.

  83. Sonya
    / 4:36 pm

    Grapes I love adding it to their lunches because there they don’t go brown like apples, don’t collapse in a heap like peeled kiwi fruit or mandarin and there’s minimal preparation involved. It’s always the first thing they’ll gobble up because they love the sweet grapey explosions in their mouth! I could get the same effect with blueberries (which they ADORE!) except they’re not good for my budget!!

  84. Charlotte L.
    / 3:06 pm

    Carrot and cheese,
    Oh yes please!
    A pot of mixed berries,
    Can’t forget cherries!
    Sliced cucumber and rice cakes,
    Little preparation is all it takes!

  85. Ern
    / 2:40 pm

    Cheese, they love it.

  86. Nicole kent
    / 2:26 pm

    Hummus, carrots, celery and more
    All the things my girl adores
    Frittata, wraps and rice cakes too
    Keeps her full the whole day through.

  87. Julia Mason
    / 2:21 pm

    We love Mango Cheeks in our lunches. When we cut the slices across both ways, and the cubes pop out! Unfortunately only during the summer months! So cold, yummy and fresh, the best.

  88. Annelies
    / 2:19 pm

    Ohhhhh, I have been looking at these for a while. I’d love to try it out!

  89. Michelle
    / 2:14 pm

    A delicious range of homemade dips
    Served with sesame seed biscuit strips
    Or fruit kebabs, they look divine
    The kids’ favourite fruits all in a line
    And simple cherry tomatoes and squares of cheese
    Are a welcome favourite and certainly please!
    Sticks of cucumber, or mini feta pies
    Are some healthy snacks this mum supplies!
