Lunchbox Ideas for Your Yumbox

It’s no secret that we’re big Yumbox fans at my house. It’s definitely the #1 box my older daughter goes for when I ask her to pack her own lunch. In today’s sponsored post, I’m excited to share what we like about the Yumbox and also a list of lunchbox ideas to pack in it.

What We Like About Yumbox

  • Yumbox’s pre-portioned trays (with cute little pictures) helps you pack healthy lunches without having to think too hard! They come in two options – 4 or 6 compartments with small images showing what to put where, which helps even the littlest ones assist in packing their own meals.
  • They alleviate the need for plastic baggies or multiple containers, which means they are good for our earth (AND leave us with fewer containers to wash).
  • They are leakproof! So go ahead and grab that yogurt or applesauce because there are no worries about leakage or spillover from one compartment to the next.

  1. I love my Yum Box. I often pack garden salad, chicken salad, pasta salad, fresh fruit, cheese, cottage cheese, sandwiches or just cheese / meat roll ups, pretzels, Almonds. Hard boiled eggs, thick dressing. It’s hard to pick just 4! So easy and you would be surprised how many quick left over items you have in the fridge!

  3. Some of our staples are cottage cheese, apple sauce and raisins. We LOVE this lunchbox, it makes lunch prep so easy and my preschooler doesn’t have to mess with bags or keeping track of lids or spills.
