Filling a lunchbox, every day, is no easy or enjoyable task. It’s boring, time-consuming, and is enought to make a pre-caffeinated parent go bonkers.
Thankfully, the team over at Yumbox have created a bento-style lunchbox container that is designed to make the daily task of packing lunches oh-so-easy.
The Yumbox is divided up into six components; dairy, grains, fruit, vegetables, protein and sweets.
By filling each section, you’re covering all the food groups, and therefore ensuring a nutritious, wholesome meal for your little legend.
So simple, it’s genius.

How we do Yumbox
We've put together our own Yumbox, using both recipes from our Lunchbox Legends blog, and some new recipes we've come across that have been given the tick of approval by the toughest of critics.
So what are our favourites to include?
Shelley Kamill's Bliss Balls of course. These taste so good, the kids won't even know they're good for them! Fruit/Sweet ✓
Blueberry, banana & chia pancakes. Sugar-free, and gluten free, these pancakes certainly don't compromise on taste. We made ours into pikelets. Grains ✓
Chocolate covered oranges and strawberries. These are a simple yet delicious treat that can be whipped up the night before.
You'll need 1 block of chocolate (we recommend dark, but we also know kids, so a good quality milk chocolate will work as well), 1 punnet of strawberries and 1 orange. Fruit ✓
Line a tray/plate with baking paper. Cut up the orange into thin slices, and wash the strawberries. Melt the chocolate in a saucepan. Dip the strawberries, and the orange slices into the chocolate. Lay them on the baking paper, and put in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours. Yumo!
