Yumbox Lunch Box Review

Yumbox Lunchbox

Price: Mini $31.99; Regular $45.99
Rating: 8/10

My Thoughts:
Whilst the Yumbox is expensive, I’ve found it to be amazing for my pre-schooler and toddler. My toddler has the 6 compartment, which fits at least one sandwich and many snacks. My pre-schooler has a 4 compartment, so that I can fit in two sandwiches as well as snacks. Because each lunchbox has compartments that seal individually, I find they keep the food fresh ALL day. Even apples only go a little brown. Also, the size of them may not be appropriate for a school-aged child who may eat more.

I find the Yumbox lunch boxes to be extremely durable, as I have personally dropped them several times on concrete (and I’m sure my kids have too).

The only downside to these lunch boxes (other than the price) is the fact that they can be a pain to clean / dry. HOWEVER because there’s only ONE insert to clean, it makes it less annoying than those with a million additional containers / dividers to clean.

The Apple / Yoghurt Test:
NO – you can’t fit a full sized apple OR yoghurt pottle in these. However, you can cut the items up (or empty a pottle of yoghurt into the compartment) and it will still keep them fresh because the compartments seal individually.

Can my 3 year old open it? YES
Can my 5 year old open it? YES
