Inspiration came from the French school lunches served to Maia’s kids daily. The emphasis in France is on balance, variety, taste and nutrition. Yumbox was dreamed up to allow us all to replicate that same balance and nutrition for our kids, regardless of where we live. Now everyone (even kids) can pack a nutritionally balanced meal using Yumbox!
Still, building a meals-on-the-go box that would accommodate a variety of foods would need some fresh ideas. We wanted a box housing a bento-like tray, with one lid that sealed all compartments; designated food groups to encourage and assist parents in packing a balanced meal; built-in portion control; a cool design and illustrations to make this little box more of an adventure in good nutrition than just plain old lunch!
These thoughts were the seeds to creating Yumbox. Together we set out to take our vision of an ideal meals on-the-go box and make it a reality!
We are both proponents of the Mediterranean diet which reinforces moderation and balance. Our hope is that Yumbox will help kids to easily integrate those concepts into their lifestyle. While Yumbox is fun to use and a pleasure to pack, it is also an educational tool that helps children develop healthy eating habits. Encourage your kids to pack their own Yumbox and soon they will be making healthy choices for themselves.
Like most moms, we are practical. Yumbox is easy for kids to use and a cinch for parents to pack. It cleans easily, will save you money, and will help you to reduce waste. And no, you do not have to make rice bunnies to create a Yumbox meal - unless you want to. In which case, please share your photos!
We hope you love Yumbox as much as we do!
