Looking for a bento lunch box that will work for the entire family? Check out Yumbox, a bento that will help you pack up healthy, waste-free lunches for school or work.
Just the basics
Yumbox is a kid-friendly, bento-style lunch container designed for kids and adults. Each Yumbox consists of two parts – the outside bento box and a removable tray insert that fits inside the box to hold food, but pops right out for ease of cleaning. You can also get the Yumbox insulated tote, which allows you to carry your Yumbox in style. Each Yumbox carry bag holds one Yumbox bento, plus drinks, snacks and a cold pack, plus has a zip closure with pulls, removable shoulder strap, mesh inside pocket and handy top handle.

Yumbox is made with ABS (exterior box), Tritan (tray), and silicone (seal). All materials used to make Yumbox are food-safe, BPA-Free, Phthalates-free and are CPSIA and FDA compliant.
Yumbox is extra great for families as it’s leakproof. The Yumbox silicone lid engages with the tray to create a tight seal keeping food contents in place, including wet foods like yogurt and applesauce (although not water, juice or other like-minded fluids). Foods will not leak between compartments or outside of the box.
Use & care
Yumbox is designed for serving cold or room temperature foods. If foods that require reheating are being packed, Yumbox recommend using removable silicone cups to hold those items as they do not recommend microwaving your entire Yumbox.
When packing cold foods, you should pack Yumbox in an insulated bag with an ice pack to keep contents cool as the materials used are not thermal.
Yumbox is dishwasher safe, but the company highly recommends hand washing the outer shell and/or removing it before the heat dry cycle. With that in mind, Yumbox was designed with rounded edges and smooth surfaces to make hand washing easy.
Yumbox comes in a variety of sizes to accommodate young children, older children and even adults. Yumbox comes in a basic six compartment style that allows you to pack lots of different foods in smaller portion sizes, a four compartment style that allows for larger portions and a mini-snack style bento with three compartments.
Mix and match plus ordering
The outer Yumbox shell comes in a huge array of colors, all of which can be further customized with stickers. There’s also many tray insert designs to choose from, allowing you to mix and match your child’s favorite color with a cool inner tray design. Yumbox is an affordable option for families and can be purchased via the Yumbox website shop, on Amazon.com and through select retailers worldwide.
