The Yum Box! Healthy & Easy Meals for Kids.

FullSizeRender (013)The Yum Box!  It has become a daily excitement in our family!  I bought it this Spring as I knew we would be doing a lot of picnic lunches at the park.  Now, even when we are at home or when I pick up the kids up from preschool, they request their yum box.  It makes eating fun with the compartments.  All the compartments are labeled to ensure you remember to pack a balanced lunch.  The other great thing is, no leaking!




Lunch idea:

  • Protein: hard boiled egg
  • Veggie: carrots
  • Fruit: tangerine and apple
  • Grain: nut thin crackers
  • Dairy: shredded cheddar
  • Treat: banana chips
