    Love Yumbox with its design ; my child finds it very appealing and will gobble up food quickly if given in it

    • Jasmine Ashford August 7, 2017 at 10:34 am #

      We love our yumbox! My daughter’s favorite lunch is pb&j heart cut sandwich with strawberries, any veggie and yogurt. With honey teddy grahams in the little snack cup.

    • Molly B August 9, 2017 at 11:39 pm #

      Prepping veggies and fruits ahead of time makes lunch packing a breeze.

    • Emma Kieninger August 10, 2017 at 11:47 am #

      I love creating a chinese meal to go in their lunches – it’s a suprise from the usual sandwiches and cold veggies!

    • angela carter August 10, 2017 at 12:47 pm #

      We love yum box and our LL bean lunch box! it fits easily and still has room for a drink and utensils!

  2. Samantha August 7, 2017 at 9:20 am #

    We LOVE Yumbox! Myself and my two children (9 and 6) use them everyday for lunches (whether they are in school or not!). 🙂 They are great for teaching to eat a variety and portion size of foods! Wonderful colors and designs!

    • Denise August 10, 2017 at 9:31 pm #

      Going into the third school year with our panino and couldn’t be happier.

  3. Annette Hultman August 7, 2017 at 9:21 am #

    I love cutting food into different shapes or wrapping sandwiches vs leaving them flat. My son loves snack lunches too – cheese and crackers with veggies and fruit!

  4. Kari August 7, 2017 at 9:22 am #

    Packing lunches the night before and utilizing leftovers.

  5. Jill Shah August 7, 2017 at 9:23 am #

    We use Yumbox all the time. Mini Yumbox works great for Greek yogurt and fruit (and maybe a few chocolate chips) while the regular size are perfect for lunch.

  6. Audrey Stewart August 7, 2017 at 9:24 am #

    We love the carrots and ranch dressing to dip them in.

  7. Emily August 7, 2017 at 9:24 am #

    As a nutritionist and food allergy mom, I always find myself packing lunches in components: some veggies, some fruit, a protein, a healthy fat, and a whole grain. The bento-style of packing really works for me, since it allows me to check off these categories easily and it keeps lunch time fun for the kids. I’d love to try the yumbox, especially since I’ve heard wonderful things about how leakproof the compartments are. Thanks for this opportunity!

  8. Troy August 7, 2017 at 9:25 am #

    I like to fill the small circle with granola or other toppings when I pack yogurt.

  9. Stephanie August 7, 2017 at 9:26 am #

    Pre-cuttting veggies and fruit ahead of time!

  10. Adrian August 7, 2017 at 9:26 am #

    Love our Yumbox!! My kids think they’re like lunchables, only I can make them a healthier version 🙂

  11. Jessica Kruger August 7, 2017 at 9:27 am #

    Love Yumbox teaching kids portion control and to try foods from all the food groups.

  12. Andra Glick August 7, 2017 at 9:27 am #

    This makes my kid want to eat a variety of foods for lunch, and enjoy it!

  13. Sabrina Fraley August 7, 2017 at 9:28 am #

    We love using sliced pepperoni as our protein. Add some crackers and veggies and a fruit treat and we’re out the door!

  14. Rose Foster August 7, 2017 at 9:28 am #

    Peanut butter and Jelly

  15. jacqueline jackson August 7, 2017 at 9:28 am #

    Honestly, using our Yumbox is my lunch planning hack! Having the compartments makes it so easy to just fill each with a different food group (fruits,
    Veggies, protein) and you’re ready to go. My child loves his lunch box. Thanks for making packing a healthy lunch easy.

  16. Colleen August 7, 2017 at 9:29 am #

    Packing bite sized foods like blueberries, grapes, popcorn, cheese cubes.

  17. Kee August 7, 2017 at 9:29 am #

    My favorite lunch box hack is to pack lunch the night before. It makes mornings a breeze.

  18. Kim Bywater August 7, 2017 at 9:30 am #

    I love having my kids help with making lunch. The yumbox looks like it will be a great tool to help us with that chore.

  19. Jennifer August 7, 2017 at 9:30 am #

    I absolutely love yum box, it’s a great way to organize your kids lunches and snacks.

  20. Anita Sears August 7, 2017 at 9:31 am #

    Yumbox is the BEST! Fav hack is using frozen sponges in ziplock bags or frozen yogurt/drinks as ice packs.

  21. Cara August 7, 2017 at 9:31 am #

    We love Yumbox! Last year was my daughter’s first year of kindergarten and we used one everyday she brought lunch to school. I love that nothing leaked from one section to the other and that they fit perfectly inside a standard lunch bag. I also love that they are hard so nothing gets smooshed!

  22. Marion August 7, 2017 at 9:31 am #

    I do my best to pack (what will not get soggy) Mon-Wed lunches, water bottles, and snacks on Sunday. Utilize leftovers as well.

  23. Ashley Hong August 7, 2017 at 9:32 am #

    I love that it helps me offer a variety of foods to my kids in good portions!!

  24. Kate Coppola August 7, 2017 at 9:32 am #

    Like many kids, my son sticks his nose up a veggies! So, I’ve started making and packing cauliflower tater tots 🙂 Little does he know it’s a potato that he is eating but a veggie! I also ask him what the other kids have for fruit and pack that because he likes having similar foods as the other kids!

  25. Nickey August 7, 2017 at 9:32 am #

    Having the yum box helps me to get creative and plan lunches that are aesthetically pleasing and healthy. I love checking other people’s ideas too!

  26. Amber Hernandez August 7, 2017 at 9:32 am #

    I like to use silicone cupcake liners in the compartments to bring more color to the foods in them. Also packing a wide variety of colorful foods makes it more fun to eat as well!

  27. Barbara Mayes August 7, 2017 at 9:32 am #

    packing lunches the night before so there is no rushing and you can be more creative. also if you add an encouraging note to their lunch it makes them smile!

  28. Melissa Kling August 7, 2017 at 9:33 am #

    My favorite packed lunch hack is making lunches I can freeze and pop right into the lunch box! Like pizza wheels and homemade uncrustables and muffins!

  29. Jayme Bruce August 7, 2017 at 9:34 am #

    I’m still learning how to pack great lunches but our yumbox really helps me be more intentional about what I pack!

  30. Cynthia August 7, 2017 at 9:34 am #

    Awesome combo for bringing snacks/lunch to the beach!

    • Cynthia August 7, 2017 at 9:37 am #

      My favorite lunch hack is prepping the night before, sometimes using leftovers from dinner and adding in various snack-type items (and a little treat, of course)!

  31. Laura August 7, 2017 at 9:34 am #

    I serve everything with toothpicks – cheese cubes, cut up deli meat, grapes, etc… give it a toothpick and my kids will gobble it up!

  32. Lori August 7, 2017 at 9:35 am #

    Having several of the trays means that on Sunday afternoon I can pack for the entire week. Once the trays are filled, I cover them with plastic wrap and set them in our extra refrigerator. Each evening we switch out the empty tray for a full one. The next morning your lunch is ready to grab and go.

  33. Sarah August 7, 2017 at 9:35 am #

    My favorite lunchbox hack is including a few chocolate chips as dessert. If the kids don’t use dip that day, then the Yumbox round compartment is a perfect place for the chocolate chips, but really any compartment will do.

  34. Ashlee August 7, 2017 at 9:35 am #

    Love the convenience of having one container for my kids’ lunches instead of multiple small containers.

  35. Tux August 7, 2017 at 9:35 am #

    My kids love their yumboxes!!!!

  36. Gigi August 7, 2017 at 9:35 am #

    Mine is silicone muffin holders to divide food and not use disposable bags!

  37. Kristen August 7, 2017 at 9:36 am #

    Packing lunches the night before

  38. Aubrey P August 7, 2017 at 9:37 am #

    Yumbox is the best! We love to include all the fixings for a yogurt parfait for them to put together.

  39. Lauren August 7, 2017 at 9:39 am #

    Packing a few lunches at a time. I have extra inserts for my yumbox with lids. I pack and stack the lunches in the fridge. Saves precious time in the evening instead of packing daily.

  40. jen in pa August 7, 2017 at 9:40 am #

    i try to pack lunches the night before so we don’t have to tackle that in the morning!

  41. Denise August 7, 2017 at 9:40 am #

    Not really a hack, but I recently discovered very minimally processed chicken breast kabobs at Costco. Making lunches has never been quicker! I also love buying frozen pomegranate seeds. They thaw, but at still nice and cold at lunch time and taste just as good as fresh for less money.

  42. Jennie August 7, 2017 at 9:43 am #

    We love yum box!!!!!

  43. Jennie August 7, 2017 at 9:44 am #

    We always pack the night before and use cute bento picks and accessories

  44. Kari August 7, 2017 at 9:46 am #

    Yumbox is great for my picky kid! I can give him a little bit of everything and the foods don’t touch! I pack the night before and throw it in the lunchbag in the morning.

  45. Rachel Bogdan August 7, 2017 at 9:47 am #

    Vegan turkey rolls with carrot sticks and grapes

  46. Jackie Novitsky August 7, 2017 at 9:47 am #

    We love yumboxes!!! We have used them daily since our twins were 3. They are sturdy in easy to open with little fingers. Highly recommend this product to anyone.

  47. Kimberly August 7, 2017 at 9:49 am #

    Love to use YumBox to pack fruits, veggies, and chunks of cheese and meats. My kids love it!!

  48. Denise Potts August 7, 2017 at 9:49 am #

    Like most I try to pack lunches the night before. My child is picky so I’m always looking for ways to use favorite foods in new ways.

  49. Laura B August 7, 2017 at 9:49 am #

    Planning ahead the night before so lunches are ready to go in the morning

  50. Shelby August 7, 2017 at 9:53 am #

    Packing the night before and everything is still fresh!

  51. Janice Douglas August 7, 2017 at 9:59 am #

    Love yumbox! Awesome for a variety of food without the leaky mess! From veggies and dip to crackers and half sandwiches it’s been great!

  52. Jen August 7, 2017 at 9:59 am #

    Have kiddo pack! It’s easy with the dividers to teach them how to portion.

  53. Justina August 7, 2017 at 10:02 am #

    Cutting things into shapes has helped with things my child might not normally go to but if it’s in the shape of a car no questions it’s gone!!

    • Kimi August 10, 2017 at 10:03 am #

      My daughter is big on rice, so I mould these into different shapes and she counts how many she finishes for lunch in school. We’ve always wanted a yumbox! Perfect for my picky eater gradeschooler.

  54. Kristen August 7, 2017 at 10:04 am #

    We live yumbox. I cut up the veggies and fruit for the week making it fast to put lunches together each Day

  55. Amber Wallace August 7, 2017 at 10:07 am #

    I’m working on crafting homemade lunchables in our Yumboxes this year!

  56. Amy Williams August 7, 2017 at 10:07 am #

    Just got mine in! I can’t wait to see how the kids like it!

  57. Jennifer C August 7, 2017 at 10:07 am #

    I love using silicone cupcake liners to make even more compartments if necessary as well as using my sandwich cutters to make cute shapes to fit in the compartments as well as make lunch fun. I also make lunch the night before so I have more time to get everything together (not a morning person!)

  58. Joni August 7, 2017 at 10:07 am #

    I love to get everything packed up the night before, saves so much time as we’re trying to run out of the house in the morning!

  59. Leah August 7, 2017 at 10:08 am #

    Pack the night before using the Yumbox tray with lid!

  60. Erica Solomon August 7, 2017 at 10:08 am #

    My kids pack their snacks, I do the main food. I am excited to try bento style for my youngest going to preschool next month.

  61. Jo August 7, 2017 at 10:20 am #

    Love these!

  62. Kathy August 7, 2017 at 10:22 am #

    Packing the lunch the night before.

  63. Stephanie August 7, 2017 at 10:23 am #

    We love to pack homemade lunchables in our yumbox, and the leak proof box keeps the crackers from getting soggy!!

  64. Sarah Soucie Eyberg August 7, 2017 at 10:27 am #

    I have yumboxes for all my kids. They have held up for years!

  65. Lora August 7, 2017 at 10:31 am #

    Salad in a jar and overnight oats

  66. Alicia E. August 7, 2017 at 10:31 am #

    We use old plastic baby food containers to hold our hummus or dressings for our veggies or pretzels.

  67. Valerie Hare August 7, 2017 at 10:36 am #

    My first child has used her yumbox lunch for two years now, and it shows no signs of breaking or looking “old.” One of my favorite lunch packing hacks is to prepare the lunch the night before from everything from the sandwich/wrap to the drink and napkin. This makes it easier to focus on getting ready in the morning for school and being able to leave prepared.

  68. Alicia August 7, 2017 at 10:36 am #

    Love the yumbox! It helps my picky eater because each food is separated so he can see what he is eating

  69. Heidi August 7, 2017 at 10:39 am #

    One of those sandwich cutters that cuts them into hearts.

  70. Dayna August 7, 2017 at 10:42 am #

    I hated packing lunches before Yumbox. Mainly being limited on what you could pack with standard plastic baggies. Now I can send in so many more fresh food options and know the compartments wont leak! I’ve nearly forgotten how to pack a sack lunch!

  71. Chrissy M August 7, 2017 at 10:42 am #

    Love to pack frozen yogurt in the lunchbox. Helps keep food cold and thaws out just in time for lunch

  72. Lauren W August 7, 2017 at 10:44 am #

    My kids love pasta salads for lunch! It’s an easy way to have veggies, protein and starch all in one dish!

  73. Catherine August 7, 2017 at 10:44 am #

    We just got our first Yumbox and LOVE it so much!! It makes prepping their lunches ahead of time so much easier and the food stays fresh. My favorite lunch hack is making a little extra at dinner and saving the leftovers to use for lunch throughout the week. My girls tell me all the time how their friends ask if they can have some of their lunch instead of what is provided by the school. 🙂

  74. Kristen M August 7, 2017 at 10:45 am #

    My favorite packed lunch is avocado, fresh veggies of cucumbers, carrots, celery, sweet peppers, etc, Wheat thin crackers, beef sticks and fresh fruit of some kind.

  75. Rachel Smith August 7, 2017 at 10:48 am #

    My favorite hack is making sandwiches in bulk and freezing them, such a time saver and they thaw by lunch time!

  76. Kati August 7, 2017 at 10:50 am #

    My daughter loves when I make homemade pizza lunchables in her Yumbox! I use Hungry Girl’s fold it for the pizza, shredded mozzarella cheese and pepperoni slices (both in silicone cupcake liners) and put marinara sauce in an old energy drink container. Squeezes in there just perfectly! 🙂

  77. Christa Lopez August 7, 2017 at 10:52 am #

    I pack the lunches at night so our mornings run smoothly!

  78. Kim B. August 7, 2017 at 10:52 am #

    I pack lunches the night before and cut sandwiches with a cookie cutter. Include a small piece good-quality chocolate for a treat.

  79. Julie Bartlett August 7, 2017 at 10:52 am #

    I like using silicone cupcake liners to keep things separate within the larger sections.

  80. Candac3 August 7, 2017 at 10:55 am #

    Grilled cheese sandwiches are great for lunch — just let the sandwich cool before placing in the box so it doesn’t steam and become soggy.

  81. Sadie K. August 7, 2017 at 10:56 am #

    I free yogurt in silicone trays and pop them in the kids lunches in the morning. They are melted by the time the kids eat lunch!

  82. Melissa Peters August 7, 2017 at 11:00 am #

    Yumbox is discussed regularly in my Lunch ideas facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/628253957290166/

  83. Samantha August 7, 2017 at 11:00 am #

    Packing the night before and letting my daughter help. She’s much more willing to eat it if she’s packed it herself!

  84. Tiffany August 7, 2017 at 11:02 am #

    I freeze yogurt tubes and cheese sticks so when I put them in the lunches they stay cold and are thawed by lunchtime

  85. Angela August 7, 2017 at 11:03 am #

    I cut up a bunch of fruit on Sunday evenings so that it is quicker packing in the morning!

  86. Mike Bogdan August 7, 2017 at 11:04 am #

    Let the kids help make their own lunches that way theyre more excited to eat them

  87. Angela August 7, 2017 at 11:04 am #

    Making all the items the night before so everything will be ready to go in the morning! I just ordered 2 of these and would love an extra one!!

  88. Cindy PItts August 7, 2017 at 11:05 am #

    I agree with Christa above – we’ve always packed lunches the night before, to make the morning routine go quickly.

  89. Kiley August 7, 2017 at 11:07 am #

    Yumbox changed how we do lunches! It is easy to pack fun, fresh lunches without worrying if the little ones can open/ close a bunch of little containers. Perfect portions and most of all it makes everything look SO fun! I am grateful for Yumbox… my son has tried many new foods because of it!

  90. Rachel Bogdan August 7, 2017 at 11:10 am #

    Not a hack but my kids love anything that involves a side of rice for lunch

  91. Ashley August 7, 2017 at 11:10 am #

    Fav hack is removing the yum box cover when baby is ready to eat….fits perfectly in her highchair tray.

  92. Shay Stonecipher August 7, 2017 at 11:15 am #

    WE LOVE YUMBOX LUNCHES!

  93. Paula August 7, 2017 at 11:16 am #

    My favorite hack is using the silicone cupcake holders to add an additional divider

  94. Jan Waddy August 7, 2017 at 11:18 am #

    I love my son’s Yumbox so much that I have been borrowing it this summer! It’s great for encouraging portion control/variety, and it even holds salad dressing. Our panino tray is about to go into its third school year, and the hard case lasted nearly two school years. Along with the insulated bag, this has been the best lunch box ever!

  95. Jaelene August 7, 2017 at 11:21 am #

    My kids love their YumBox lunch boxes! I love the labeled portion areas so I can make sure they are getting a balanced diet. My daughter can’t wait to use hers this coming school year when she gets to eat lunch at school.

  96. Kim August 7, 2017 at 11:27 am #

    My lunch pack hack is to pack the night before!

  97. sandra August 7, 2017 at 11:28 am #

    fruit cups are a great shortcut

  98. Jen August 7, 2017 at 11:28 am #

    My two boys have a Yumbox and now my daughter is getting ready for daycare in the toddler room so I’d love to win a Yumbox for her!

  99. Rachael August 7, 2017 at 11:28 am #

    My favorite lunchbox hack is making food ahead of time and freezing it, so I always have something to pack in a pinch.

  100. amy dowdle August 7, 2017 at 11:31 am #

    We pack lunches the night before, to make the mornings run somewhat smoother.

  101. Nicole August 7, 2017 at 11:31 am #

    My favorite lunch box hack is homemade “lunchables” cutting meats and cheeses into fun shapes 🙂

  102. Nicole August 7, 2017 at 11:34 am #

    I make extras at dinner and pack in the yum box for the next days lunch

  103. Jennifer August 7, 2017 at 11:37 am #

    Love yumbox

  104. Intan muqorobin August 7, 2017 at 11:38 am #

    Yumbox is the best lunchbox ever!!!!
    Love its design… makes me want every color of it hahahaha..

  105. Erin August 7, 2017 at 11:38 am #

    We created a snack zone in our pantry & fridge – it makes filling the yum boxes and snack bags so much easier!

  106. Elisa H August 7, 2017 at 11:40 am #

    I love BLTs and salads!

  107. Caren D August 7, 2017 at 11:42 am #

    Love Yumbox!!!! Anything goes and always include 1-2 fruits and a veggie. The kids love this and a disappointed when the need to take a sack lunch. Bonus: the box usually comes back empty!!!!

  108. Stacey C. August 7, 2017 at 11:44 am #

    Making lunch the night before; using silicone cupcake wrappers as dividers!

  109. Paula P. August 7, 2017 at 11:48 am #

    We love yumbox, brifht colors and ideas on what to put in them.

  110. Geny August 7, 2017 at 11:57 am #

    Lunchbox hack- packing cold stuff the night before and adding in last min things the morning of. I would love an extra panino box for my daughter since my boys already have one!

  111. Adina August 7, 2017 at 11:59 am #

    I am not very good at hacks–I try to keep it simple. But I love to add surprises and notes now and then.

  112. Amy watkins willis August 7, 2017 at 11:59 am #

    My favorite lunch suggestion is using fun little bento box food picks to liven up lunchtime! My daughter loves opening up her lunch to see “who” is hiding inside!

  113. Kimberly August 7, 2017 at 12:00 pm #

    My favorite packed lunch hack is having the girls participate in packing their lunch the night before. Saves soooooo much time in the morning. (if they forget and complain about their lunch the next day, a gentle reminder that they can participate in packing their lunch the night before reminds them to take ownership over it and gives some control back to them.)

  114. Jen August 7, 2017 at 12:01 pm #

    Lunch packing is so much easier in a yumbox! It works for us!

  115. Nickie Bird August 7, 2017 at 12:02 pm #

    My daughter loves yumbox. Her favorite lunch is turkey & cheese cut into shapes. She also loves Salads.

  116. Gail Hollingsworth August 7, 2017 at 12:03 pm #

    We like to make the seal and take sandwiches.

  117. Elizabeth August 7, 2017 at 12:08 pm #

    My favorite lunchbox hack is using cupcake liners to divide food and cutting and arranging food in a fun way to encourage my son to try new things!

  118. Kristen l August 7, 2017 at 12:11 pm #

    Yumbox has fun designs for the kids!!! Can’t wait for my daughter to start using hers for school!!!

  119. Tzivia August 7, 2017 at 12:14 pm #

    Having a lunchbox that has compartments makes lunch preparations easy and fun.

  120. Rene August 7, 2017 at 12:16 pm #

    Fave lunch hack: pita, hummus, cucumbers, tomatoes all tucked in their compartments until ready to eat. No soggy greek sandwich!

  121. Stephanie Morales August 7, 2017 at 12:24 pm #

    My favorite thing to pack is the classic PB & J, carrots, ranch sauce, and some delicious fruits such as apples or blueberries.

  122. Krista August 7, 2017 at 12:27 pm #

    These look to be perfect for back to school!

  123. mamallamalunches August 7, 2017 at 12:33 pm #

    My favorite lunchtime hack is to chop or cut just a little more veggies from our dinners to use in the next day’s lunch, i.e. if we have zucchini noodles for dinner, I make extra that becomes a lion’s mane for my kiddo’s safari lunch the next day!

  124. Esther Liow August 7, 2017 at 12:34 pm #

    Packing lunch the night before. So morning is less of a rush!

  125. serena August 7, 2017 at 12:37 pm #

    Yumbox is the hack! It reminds me to give the kids all the stuff and they love the variety.

  126. Daisy August 7, 2017 at 12:40 pm #

    putting frozen items like peas or croissants that I buy in bulk and keep in freezer. They defrost by the time they get to lunch!

  127. Karen August 7, 2017 at 12:40 pm #

    The kids love it when I put Nutella in the round “sauce” section for an extra treat to have with apple slices. I love that everything stays in its desired section and does not leak!!!

  128. Heather Collins August 7, 2017 at 12:46 pm #

    My daughter loves when I pack sushi!

  129. Jenn S August 7, 2017 at 12:49 pm #

    rolled up sandwich wraps – fit great in a lunchbox!

  130. Kendall August 7, 2017 at 12:53 pm #

    The try to hit a protein, veg, fruit, carb and a small treat in all my lunches.

  131. Kristyn August 7, 2017 at 1:01 pm #

    Having an easily distracted eater, yumbox is perfect! He can open every section at the same time. This was the only product to result in a fully eaten lunch instead of coming home with only one container opened and eaten from. Thank you Yumbox! Love this product for serving fresh and healthy lunches to my kiddos!

  132. Tonya August 7, 2017 at 1:02 pm #

    My favorite yumbox hack is to use press n seal wrap to seal runny items to help with easier clean up!

  133. Diana August 7, 2017 at 1:05 pm #

    I’m a working mom and I had always struggled with how much food to pack my kids for lunch. When I discovered Yumbox it became a lot more easier to pack lunches. Its design helps you to just pack the right amount of food for lunches and packing lunches are a lot of fun. To be honest, after a long day at work, packing my kids lunch in their Yumbox is like a stress reliever for me; plus kids love how creative their lunches end up being. We love our Yumboxes and we would love to add more to our collection 🙂

  134. Elvira Gonzales August 7, 2017 at 1:07 pm #

    Aww.. kind of bummed that I can’t enter since my Instagram is private and you won’t be able to see who I am tagging.

  135. Britnie August 7, 2017 at 1:08 pm #

    Leftovers make great lunches the next day! We cook a double recipe just so we can have leftovers.

  136. Monica Duncan August 7, 2017 at 1:09 pm #

    I like making homemade lunchable type snacks with easy to eat fruit and freeze dried veggies (like okra or green beans) and it’s a win for the kids. If we had roast chicken for dinner I also sometimes make quick chicken quesadillas to add to their lunches, and if I add some sour cream in a little container the kids love it. Sliced hot dogs and a container of ketchup is loved as well. Or strawberries and yogurt to dip them in. So making things fun and easy to eat, and having a dipping option is a plus! Which makes containers necessary.

  137. Shannon Ferguson August 7, 2017 at 1:11 pm #

    Love Yumbox lunchboxes! We love packing watermelon or any type of juicy fruit because it doesn’t leak or get the rest of our food soggy!

  138. CINDY C August 7, 2017 at 1:22 pm #

    Fave hack is to make rolls instead of sandwiches!

  139. Ashley August 7, 2017 at 1:28 pm #

    Love yumbox! Have been wanting one for my daughter for a while!

  140. Vanessa Palomo August 7, 2017 at 1:30 pm #

    My favorite packed lunch hack is cutting the food into different shapes and making it more appealing to my son. He seems to eat more when he likes the way it looks. Also he gets to choose the shapes/animals.

  141. Stephanie Phelps August 7, 2017 at 1:33 pm #

    My favorite lunch hack is to make animals out of the sandwiches and some pretzels and grapes they love it.

  142. Joan park August 7, 2017 at 1:35 pm #

    My daughter loves hotdogs cut into an octopus shape.

  143. Cindy C August 7, 2017 at 1:36 pm #

    I love using picks to make lunches more cute and appetizing!

  144. Alessa Bagalio August 7, 2017 at 1:46 pm #

    My favorite hack is adding fun shaped fruits to lunch!

  145. Yvette August 7, 2017 at 1:48 pm #

    cool and functional! kids love them 🙂

  146. Kitkat0229 August 7, 2017 at 1:48 pm #

    Can’t wait to get ours for my kinder!

  147. Jill Hopkins August 7, 2017 at 1:49 pm #

    I don’t follow the “rules” of the Bento. Veggies usually fit better in the protein section and fruit sometimes fits better in the grains. We do what works best with the items we have.

  148. Gina August 7, 2017 at 1:49 pm #

    Having a plan for the week for lunches makes life a little easier.

  149. Monique Janse van Rensburg August 7, 2017 at 1:52 pm #

    Love love love these boxes!

  150. Jamie August 7, 2017 at 1:52 pm #

    I love to put frozen tubes of yogurt in my child’s lunch so it helps to keep everything cold and the yogurt is thawed by lunch, but still cold too!

  151. Anthony August 7, 2017 at 1:52 pm #

    My son is a very picky eater so i made up a list of foods for kindergarten. He loves shreddes chicken, fresh berries, carrots with ranch and chips with salsa or hummus. Sandwiches are not well liked by him so i am hoping he will like a pinwheel wrap. We have some experimenting to do in the next couple of weeks!

  152. Jessica Orlando August 7, 2017 at 1:53 pm #

    Packing the night before, and pre-cutting veggies and fruit into fun shapes!

  153. Laurie August 7, 2017 at 1:56 pm #

    My favorite packed lunch is a turkey sandwich.

  154. Reva White August 7, 2017 at 1:57 pm #

    We don’t pack lunch but so should!!! To help create better habit and actually get out kiddos to eat lunch ♡

  155. Jennifer Wakefield August 7, 2017 at 1:57 pm #

    What is your favorite packed lunch hack? Letting the kids help meal plan and packing the night before!

  156. Amanda Brown August 7, 2017 at 1:57 pm #

    I love giving small amounts of lots of different choices for my girls!

  157. Melissa August 7, 2017 at 1:58 pm #

    Fits perfect in lunch box, easy to clean, perfect portion sizes. He loves taco salad in his Yumbox

  158. Sharon B August 7, 2017 at 1:58 pm #

    Packing the night before and having my son pick his snack for recess that way I know he will eat something at school.

  159. Sharee August 7, 2017 at 1:59 pm #

    My favorite lunch hack is to cook and bake in bulk. Healthy muffins, scrolls, bliss balls etc and freeze. It makes that portion of the lunch box fast. Mixes it up from just sanwiches and makes it quick to then throw the other parts of the lunch together. Fruit, vegetable, dairy protein etc. i also precut a lot of fruit for several days. Love bento style lunches.

  160. Kate August 7, 2017 at 2:00 pm #

    Love letting our kids get involved and make their own choices in each food group! Helps make sure they eat at least some of everything that gets packed! Thanks yumbox!!

  161. Jamie August 7, 2017 at 2:00 pm #

    My favorite lunch hack is mini plastic food skewers, so much easier to pack then plastic ware!

  162. Nicole K. August 7, 2017 at 2:00 pm #

    I packed lunches every School day since my oldest was in kindergarten (now i have high school, middle school, and elementary school age kids). I’ve learned to pack what I can the night before, (granola, napkin, utensils, etc) so that in the morning i can put together whatever hot or cold foods I need to make and just add them in. I’ll ask each kid what they want the night before so that I can be prepared the following morning. It really cuts down on time in the already hectic morning.

  163. KP August 7, 2017 at 2:01 pm #

    Love the fact that it is easy to make a “grazing” lunch– the kids are so much more likely to eat that than they are a big meal!

    • Dana Verhoff August 10, 2017 at 8:44 pm #

      I agree! Not only do my kids like to graze but so do I 🙂

  164. Celeste Cruz August 7, 2017 at 2:02 pm #

    Meal prepping!

  165. Tasha Milmont August 7, 2017 at 2:02 pm #

    My favorite lunch hack is to use the mini sub rolls and it gives me more space to pack other goodies in the Panino.

  166. Cora1010 August 7, 2017 at 2:03 pm #

    My son loves all diffrent thinks in his lunchbox instat of only bread

  167. Wendy B. August 7, 2017 at 2:03 pm #

    Turkey, crackers, and a vegetable are my daughter’s favorite. She also loves finding a yogurt in her lunchbox!

  168. Yadhira Chaparro August 7, 2017 at 2:03 pm #

    My favorite hack is cut sandwiches in fun shapes so my picky eater can eat them 😀

  169. Jessica August 7, 2017 at 2:04 pm #

    I love these so much! Also supper impressed by their customer service!! They are such great colors and so easy for my for year olds to use.

  170. Sandra Caballero August 7, 2017 at 2:04 pm #

    My 8 years old doesn’t have a lunch box. Last year I tried to do lunch for her by only packing her favorite healthy snacks. I had to use small ziplock bags. I want to change for good and keep earth clean by using a reusable lunch box. That way we help her school trash free. I don’t want my daughter eating the school lunches. They are nasty and unhealthy.

  171. Jessica August 7, 2017 at 2:05 pm #

    I love these so much! Also supper impressed by their customer service!! They are such great colors and so easy for my four year old to use!!

  172. Mimi Cha August 7, 2017 at 2:05 pm #

    I use snacks to fill up empty compartments in a jiffy!

  173. Amy C August 7, 2017 at 2:07 pm #

    We love our yumboxes! They made packing lunch so easy and fun.

  174. Tashena Ramirez August 7, 2017 at 2:10 pm #

    My little girl goes off the pre-k this year! This girl has an appetite! Yumbox is awesome!

  175. Laura K August 7, 2017 at 2:10 pm #

    Packing the same thing over & over is my lunch hack!

  176. Pam August 7, 2017 at 2:11 pm #

    Love yumbox!

  177. Emillie August 7, 2017 at 2:12 pm #

    My son’s favorite thing for lunch is a peanut butter sandwich on wheat bread with apple slices, green beans, and a few fruit snacks for a treat!

  178. Michelle August 7, 2017 at 2:12 pm #

    I cook and freeze a big batch of chicken meatballs to thaw and toss in to my son’s lunches.

  179. Mary Katherine jimenez August 7, 2017 at 2:13 pm #

    We love to put frozen water as a cold pack. ThT way they can drink it when it Is time for lunch.

  180. Heaven August 7, 2017 at 2:14 pm #

    We love our Yumboxes. My favorite lunch to pack for the kids is a half a sandwich wrap, some fruit, carrots with hummus, and some chips or crackers. Easy and balanced

  181. Pam August 7, 2017 at 2:20 pm #

    Our go to lunches are baked chicken nuggets, fruit, and carrots. We also enjoy leftover tacos but with tortilla chips.

  182. Andrea August 7, 2017 at 2:25 pm #

    There’s nothing so satisfying as these perfectly compartmentalized containers with pretty little food. Love the LL Bean quality and great to find a lunch box carrier that fits perfectly!

  183. Jacki Decker August 7, 2017 at 2:27 pm #

    I have always wanted to try yum box. What a great opportunity ! Thanks !

  184. Marie August 7, 2017 at 2:32 pm #

    Yumbox is a hack itself! I get to customize the kids lunches and sneak in some veggies that they’ll actually eat!

  185. Melanie Sullivan August 7, 2017 at 2:32 pm #

    As the lunch-packer in our house, I loved yumboxes. This will be my child’s fourth year taking his lunch in yumboxes.

  186. TARRAH MARTIN August 7, 2017 at 2:32 pm #

    Hard boiled eggs and fresh fruits and veggies at the ready.

  187. Melissa Fisk August 7, 2017 at 2:39 pm #

    Love our Yumboxes! Our daughter is 22 months and we send it everyday to daycare filled with great, healthy lunches for her… comes home empty every night!

  188. Judy Myers August 7, 2017 at 2:40 pm #

    My youngest is now responsible for packing his own lunch! Let’s hope he packs enough so he’s not hungry, and at least some healthy stuff! 🙂

  189. Ashleigh August 7, 2017 at 2:41 pm #

    So excited to not have to dig for Tupperware in the mornings #momscore

  190. Rewana August 7, 2017 at 2:53 pm #

    Maybe its my lucky dag;)

  191. Justin tan August 7, 2017 at 2:54 pm #

    Prepare the night before to avoid the morning rush and also use Yumbox leakproof bento lunch box so that your sandwiches won’t get soggy!!!

  192. Ellicia August 7, 2017 at 2:59 pm #

    Love our yumbox! Great for lunch and snacks!

  193. Amanda Jordan August 7, 2017 at 3:00 pm #

    My favorite lunch is a ham and cheese sandwich with carrots and dip. My son loves diy lunchables (meat, cheese, crackers or tortilla shapes, apples, and a treat).

  194. Carrie August 7, 2017 at 3:04 pm #

    My daughter is about to enter kindergarten, and Yumbix seems like the perfect hack for easy packed lunches every day!

    • Carrie August 8, 2017 at 4:45 pm #

      Gah! That’s YumBOX!

  195. Connie Wilbur August 7, 2017 at 3:09 pm #

    We love yumbox in our family! My boys love having their food in these. So fun! Love love love!!

  196. Jennifer August 7, 2017 at 3:16 pm #

    I have an autistic daughter and the Yumbox is perfect for her. She loves to put in crackers, cheese and cookies:-)

  197. Patty August 7, 2017 at 3:18 pm #

    I dont know if this is a hack, but i love to pack a toothpick as the utensil. My 11 year old always says “everything tastes better when eaten with a toothpick!” And then I compost it when they bring it home.

  198. Olga August 7, 2017 at 3:21 pm #

    I always prepare the day before. I like to make sandwiches and add happy faces using fruits and veggies.

  199. Jennifer Monaco August 7, 2017 at 3:21 pm #

    I can’t wait to use these this year. My son isn’t a sandwich kinda kid & this will keep evettthing separate!

  200. Christie Lawrence August 7, 2017 at 3:25 pm #

    I like to freeze grapes so they are still by lunchtime

  201. Jeffrie Tarin Kreis August 7, 2017 at 3:27 pm #

    Our favorite lunch is ham and cheese roll ups, celery with peanut butter dip, plain yogurt with raw honey, sliced strawberries and whole grain crackers!

  202. Natalie August 7, 2017 at 3:27 pm #

    I am in the market for a second YumBox. My 5th grader loves hers!

  203. Yvette Martinez August 7, 2017 at 3:29 pm #

    Using cookie cutters on sandwiches for cool shapes!

  204. Melissa Moore August 7, 2017 at 3:29 pm #

    I love Yumbox And LLBean!

  205. Jenille August 7, 2017 at 3:31 pm #

    Leftovers from the night before.

  206. sarah gross August 7, 2017 at 3:32 pm #

    We like to have the kids help so they cut sandwich/cheese/fruit into fun shapes

  207. Shinay August 7, 2017 at 3:42 pm #

    Lunch hack is during the weekend prepare a big container of lunch items, for my kids to use daily to pack their own lunches.

  208. BonnieL August 7, 2017 at 3:43 pm #

    Best lunch hack is PB&J on a tortilla. It’s different than your usual PB&J, can cut it into “sandwich sushi,” and it’s less bread. My kids usually only eat one slice of bread with their sandwiches (yet still require 2 slices instead of a one slice folded over sandwich), and this prevents waste. Plus, it’s yummy!

  209. L. Bowles August 7, 2017 at 3:46 pm #

    Bento boxes is definitely my favorite packed lunch hack so my little toddler has a lot of options and doesn’t get bored with her meals

  210. Laura August 7, 2017 at 3:48 pm #

    My favorite tip/hack is to involve my kids in packing their Yumboxes. They get to choose a variety of foods and the suggestions in the sections help them learn about balancing their diets.

  211. Jocelyn August 7, 2017 at 3:57 pm #

    We love our yumbox!

  212. Laura Snell August 7, 2017 at 3:58 pm #

    My favorite yumbox hack is to prepare all foods on Sunday and then portion them out so I can grab and pack throughout the week…that’s how I yumbox meal prep for an adult 🙂

  213. Lori August 7, 2017 at 4:01 pm #

    I’m looking for a way to pack a healthy lunch without using anything disposable.

  214. Meghan Gerrity August 7, 2017 at 4:02 pm #

    My favorite lunchbox hack is having snacks prepared and in the fridge so I can pack and go quicker in the morning.

  215. Olivia August 7, 2017 at 4:04 pm #

    Yum boxes are the BEST! My son loves snack patter lunches as he calls them. bit of this, bit of that things to dip and dips to dip in. Yum box makes it so easy to proves these kids of lunches for my guy, and perfect portions.

  216. Amy Cavalier August 7, 2017 at 4:07 pm #

    My favorite hack is making sandwiches ahead. I also make portions ahead so I can grab and go

  217. Roma August 7, 2017 at 4:10 pm #

    This is our 3rd school year using a yumbox. My little loves using it and we always gets loads of compliments on it.

  218. Alicia Carpenter August 7, 2017 at 4:21 pm #

    Love these! Can’t wait to try it! I think my daughter is going to love it!

  219. Laura Stibitz August 7, 2017 at 4:28 pm #

    Isn’t the ease of a yumbox enough of a hack? : ) Love packing lunches in them.

  220. ANNE FARIAS August 7, 2017 at 4:33 pm #

    My kids love their yumboxes! They’re always excited
    to see what I put in the “dip” section. It’s usually raisins or pistachios, but sometimes I’ll surprise them with gummy fruits!

  221. Ashley August 7, 2017 at 4:33 pm #

    Winning this would be so awesome!!! I’ve been thinking about a yumbix for 3 years now!

  222. Kelly August 7, 2017 at 4:35 pm #

    I like to pack a variety. Lots of things – small quantities of each. That’s my hack

  223. Heather August 7, 2017 at 4:38 pm #

    My fave lunchbox hack is FROZEN GRAPES! they stay cold until lunchtime and are way better than warm grapes when it’s hot outside! This is great for school lunch but even better for picnics and beach trips!

  224. Rachel August 7, 2017 at 4:47 pm #

    I just purchased, two! (would love another one!)

  225. Lauri August 7, 2017 at 4:47 pm #

    I like to prep ahead of time for the week.

  226. Mallory Ferry August 7, 2017 at 4:47 pm #

    Just bought a Yumbox for my youngest son starting Kindergarten and he is so excited to help pack his lunch! He is a picky eater, but I hope Yumbox will help him try new things since it will look so appealing!

  227. Shannon Graves August 7, 2017 at 4:51 pm #

    Love love love Yumbox! Best way to pack a school lunch!

  228. Elsa Flores-Perez August 7, 2017 at 4:53 pm #

    I actually don’t have any “hacks”‘ this will be the first year my son will take lunch from home so it’s all very new to me. Help!

  229. Vijaya Gumparthi August 7, 2017 at 4:57 pm #

    Yumbox has actually made me more creative in lunch packing! I just focus on packing each portion a different color and a different food. My kids look forward to see what all is in the box! Love it!:)

  230. Angelle August 7, 2017 at 4:57 pm #

    My kids love “snacky lunch”, and yumbox works perfectly with their desire for a variety of foods!

  231. Amanda August 7, 2017 at 5:05 pm #

    The best lunch-packing thing I ever did was make up a list to hang on the refrigerator that includes all the possible lunch options divided into categories. The kids pick one item from each category and pack their own balanced, healthy lunches!

  232. Jennifer Virgadamo Duhon August 7, 2017 at 5:07 pm #

    This will be our first year trying yumboxes, but my go to hack for packed lunches is prepping everything I can on Sunday nights for the whole week. It makes it so much easier on busy mornings. Also, I freeze my kids drinks. They act as an extra ice pack and are thawed for lunch, and super cold!

  233. christina galea parler August 7, 2017 at 5:07 pm #

    This will be my first year packing lunches for my kids as my little guy is just starting first grade so I don’t really have any tricks yet but I do plan on packing his lunch the night before and all the little sections in the Yumbox will defiantly help makes packing his lunch easier. Hopefully I will be a pro at this by the time my twins go to school. Thanks for the chance

  234. Kelli August 7, 2017 at 5:13 pm #

    Just got our first! Would love to win a second!

  235. Holly Davis August 7, 2017 at 5:16 pm #

    Instead of always making a sandwich, sometimes as a “hack” I will make a “pinwheel” rollup, or use bite size crackers with pieces of turkey and cheese cut into small bites.

  236. Kristina August 7, 2017 at 5:18 pm #

    The whole family is enjoying their yumbox! Even my hubby gets excited to see what’s in his!

  237. Erin August 7, 2017 at 5:19 pm #

    A mixture of yummy treats, sweet and salty!

  238. Emma August 7, 2017 at 5:31 pm #

    My little brother is so particular about his food; how it’s presented & definitely having to make sure his foods don’t touch! We need these for him!!

  239. Vicky McCune August 7, 2017 at 5:37 pm #

    My daughter loves it when i cut her veggies into shapes and skewer her fruit.

  240. Lindsay LaBonge August 7, 2017 at 5:40 pm #

    My daughter loves her yumbox. And I love being able to pack healthy options for her like strawberries, protein bites, and carrots!

  241. Christina August 7, 2017 at 5:51 pm #

    Packing lunch the night before.

  242. Tabitha August 7, 2017 at 5:59 pm #

    I have my kids pack their own lunches in the yum box. That way the learn how to pack a healthy lunch and I know they will eat it because they pack what THEY want to eat.

  243. Gretchen August 7, 2017 at 6:00 pm #

    My favorite packed lunch hack is the separate compartments that don’t leak into each other! Chips stay crunchy, fruit doesn’t get smashed and my son loves the little treat compartment. My favorite lunch box by far!

  244. Celia August 7, 2017 at 6:00 pm #

    We love Yumbox and LL Bean lunch boxes! What a perfect combination!

  245. Bonnie August 7, 2017 at 6:06 pm #

    We love the Yumbox! Everyone in the family has one. They are great to pack the night before, pull out of the fridge in the morning, and off to school.

  246. Kim Jamison August 7, 2017 at 6:18 pm #

    I love having a little snack area for my kids, so they can pick out what they’d like to include in their school lunches. Them being a part of the process ensures they’ll actually eat!

  247. JJ Caraway August 7, 2017 at 6:23 pm #

    I use pretzel sticks to put together cubes cheese, meats and veggies

  248. Gen Y August 7, 2017 at 6:24 pm #

    Trader Joe’s organic apple slices are a lifesaver! 🙂

  249. Esperanza Ross August 7, 2017 at 6:26 pm #

    Definitely packing lunch the night before is a time saver and helps the mornings go much more smoothly!

  250. Annette Robertson Paredes August 7, 2017 at 6:30 pm #

    Have the kids help me, so they will eat everything. Love the compartments to make fun combinations

  251. Jorie August 7, 2017 at 6:32 pm #

    Theses look so adorable as well as functional! Can’t wait to share my winnings!

  252. Elizabeth August 7, 2017 at 6:35 pm #

    I’d love to try the Yumbox for my son’s preschool!

  253. Alethia August 7, 2017 at 6:36 pm #

    My favorite packed lunch hack is using silicone baking cups to help divide foods. 🙂

  254. Jorie August 7, 2017 at 6:36 pm #

    Favorite packed lunch hack is fresh cut fruit and veggies with hummus or guacamole dip!

  255. Christina Newell August 7, 2017 at 6:42 pm #

    I love using silicone muffin “tins” to separate yummy food in our lunches, they allow me to pack so much more

  256. Katie N August 7, 2017 at 6:49 pm #

    I pack it the night before, and try to use leftovers. If there’s nothing that needs dip, I put a few chocolate chips or other little treats in the dip cup.

  257. Amanda Pangburn August 7, 2017 at 7:00 pm #

    Pre-cut the fruit and make two sandwiches at a time 🙂

  258. Danielle Crooks August 7, 2017 at 7:05 pm #

    We generally have leftovers. Otherwise a sandwich with fruit, veg, dip, and a treat.

  259. Shakeerah Tompkins Wonnum August 7, 2017 at 7:07 pm #

    I love Yumbox! Gone are the days where it takes me an hour to pack lunch because I have to collect different containers!

  260. Jen August 7, 2017 at 7:07 pm #

    My favorite lunch hack is packing them the night before..because we are not morning people!!

  261. Lindsey August 7, 2017 at 7:19 pm #

    I always pack the night before. I love a flat ice pack under the yumbox inside the lunch box.

  262. Vanessa freeman August 7, 2017 at 7:35 pm #

    I try to pick the night before. My son would live these boxes as he liked a little bit of a lot of things

  263. Bette August 7, 2017 at 7:37 pm #

    My favorite lunch hack is putting carrots in containers on Sunday and then adding them to everybody’s lunches every day of the work week!

  264. Pam August 7, 2017 at 7:42 pm #

    when kids get tired of eating orange carrots try the rainbow carrots they love them!!!!

  265. Monica Waugh August 7, 2017 at 7:43 pm #

    My favorite hack: leftovers, packed up when I’m packing up from dinner.

  266. Brandi L August 7, 2017 at 7:52 pm #

    Packing the night before.

  267. Alia August 7, 2017 at 8:04 pm #

    I cant tell you how much I love yumbox for my children. I wish I could get one myself. They make my busy life so much easier.

  268. Tami August 7, 2017 at 8:10 pm #

    Including a treat helps my son finish his bento lunch

  269. Samantha de Naray August 7, 2017 at 8:10 pm #

    My favorite lunchbox hack is always packing the night before!

  270. Jessica Loescher August 7, 2017 at 8:27 pm #

    Packing snacks the night before helps us a ton in the mornings when we are all rushing and trying to get out the door.

  271. Nova Anita August 7, 2017 at 8:31 pm #

    My lunch box hack is to prep everything the night before, so I can just go and cook straighaway in the morning.

  272. Erin T August 7, 2017 at 8:36 pm #

    This would be such a great set for my oldest starting Kindergarten!

  273. Lindsay A August 7, 2017 at 8:40 pm #

    I love and have been wanting these lunch boxes! This year I will have 2 full day kiddos so these lunchboxes would be absolutely amazing and perfect for my zero-waste-lunches mission! My lunchbox hacks would be freezing the nutbutter sandwich overnight so it will be super fresh at lunch time, using silicone cups to keep snacks separate and freezing wet sponges to use as ice packs!

  274. weronika August 7, 2017 at 8:42 pm #

    We’ve never had Yumbox and would love to see how it works for us. My kids love ham sandwiches with peppers on the side, granola bar, and pretty much any fruit.

  275. tash August 7, 2017 at 8:43 pm #

    i love sending little notes with my kids lunches and would be adorable in the yumbox!!

  276. Beth scoggin August 7, 2017 at 8:43 pm #

    I love using cookie cutters to make it more fun!

  277. Lizzi W August 7, 2017 at 8:45 pm #

    I love the variety you can pack each day. Never a boring lunch!

  278. Theresa B August 7, 2017 at 8:45 pm #

    Pack the night before. Cut up apples and soak in salted water for 5 minutes. They keep for a couple days without browning especially if you use Gala apples

  279. Sarah Scopio August 7, 2017 at 9:04 pm #

    We like to roll up deli meat and cut in half to fit in the containers. The kids love the rolled shaped!

  280. Karley Porter-Roe August 7, 2017 at 9:06 pm #

    I love packing hummus and things to dip with!

  281. Sarah Hayes August 7, 2017 at 9:08 pm #

    Im new to packing lunches so Im clueless. Im going to pack as much as I can the night before and the rest is trial and error

  282. roxanna larios August 7, 2017 at 9:15 pm #

    using fun cutters!!

  283. Amy B August 7, 2017 at 9:32 pm #

    Homemade lunchables with salami, sliced cheese and crackers.

  284. Amanda H August 7, 2017 at 9:53 pm #

    My son is starting Montessori school this week and I would love to have a new yumbox for him! He is a picky eater and I heard yumboxes are so much more appealing for toddlers!

  285. Jennifer August 7, 2017 at 9:58 pm #

    We’re new to lunches this year with our first entering kindergarten. We made a list together of foods for lunch in each category (main, veggies, fruit, snack/treats). I’ll let her pick 1-2 items from each category while I’m making that week’s shopping list so she can be involved.

  286. Heather W August 7, 2017 at 10:07 pm #

    I love throwing a frozen water in the lunch to act as an ice pack!

  287. Lexa August 7, 2017 at 10:24 pm #

    I love trying to pack one food from each food group to ensure a balanced lunch.

  288. Carolie August 7, 2017 at 10:34 pm #

    I found that the best ways to ensure my rising first grader eats her lunch is to 1. Pack a rainbow of different foods in her Yumbox, and 2. Let her help!

  289. Christina F. August 7, 2017 at 10:40 pm #

    My favorite lunchbox hack is…leftover pizza. No joke. We get a large for three people on Friday nights (it’s our pizza place’s special) and I use the leftovers in the kid’s lunch a couple times a week.

  290. Brit G August 7, 2017 at 11:00 pm #

    Freezing yogurt and grapes so by the time you are ready to eat, they are thawed but still cold!

  291. Stacy August 7, 2017 at 11:24 pm #

    I don’t have any hacks yet- this will be my first year packing lunches!

  292. Candy August 7, 2017 at 11:30 pm #

    Love yumbox, I have the snack size and regular. In love with both

  293. Rachel August 7, 2017 at 11:32 pm #

    My favorite “hack” is the obvious, packing lunches the night before! Mornings are too crazy. We do everything we possibly can before bed to minimize the chaos. 🙂

  294. Chavaughn Anderson August 7, 2017 at 11:34 pm #

    My favorite hack lately is partially freezing fruit cups so they are still cold at lunch time.

  295. Holly Doble August 7, 2017 at 11:59 pm #

    My favorite hack is to use a cookie cutter to make a fun sandwich shape

  296. Tammy S August 8, 2017 at 12:03 am #

    I love using my yumbox and my lunch hack is to cut food into shapes and to pack lunch the night before.

  297. Diana Takayama August 8, 2017 at 12:12 am #

    My favorite hack is to use leftovers. I also freeze apple sauce pouches to use as ice packs.

  298. safia August 8, 2017 at 12:39 am #

    I have been using yumbox for my older son for two years. now little brother is starting school too and I wouldnt use anything else.

  299. Jillian August 8, 2017 at 12:53 am #

    I love freezing sandwiches, yogurt and juice. They thaw by lunch time, no need for an ice pack!

  300. Ashley York August 8, 2017 at 12:57 am #

    I can’t wait to try Yumbox! My daughter is starting kindergarten and will take her lunch every day due to food allergies. She likes to eat what she calls “snack plates” for lunch….just a bunch of different foods in small portions, so I know she will love taking a Yumbox to school 🙂

  301. Jolan holmes August 8, 2017 at 1:08 am #

    My little guy loves a quesadilla, cucumbers, berries and pineapple.

  302. Sarah Root August 8, 2017 at 1:27 am #

    I love putting in a yogurt that has been frozen ahead of time. It keeps the other food chilled and by lunch time the yogurt is defrosted.

  303. Mary August 8, 2017 at 1:35 am #

    Home made “lunchables” with assorted leftovers!

  304. Liz L August 8, 2017 at 2:12 am #

    My packed lunch hack is preparing single serve snacks a week or two in advance.

  305. Chaya Sarah DuBrow August 8, 2017 at 3:21 am #

    My favorite hack?! Overnight oats! Love that it’s leakproof, and my daughter can enjoy her favorite morning snack!

  306. Anne August 8, 2017 at 7:14 am #

    I pack the next day’s Yumboxes while preparing dinner. My cutting board is already out and there’s always a free moment here and there to fill the next compartment.

  307. Anna-Michelle August 8, 2017 at 8:46 am #

    My kids both have one, we love them! If I win I would love the tapas one for myself as I return back to work after mat leave in Sept 🙂

  308. Pamela Thomas August 8, 2017 at 8:49 am #

    New to these fun yum boxes…they look awesome!

  309. Kristy August 8, 2017 at 9:17 am #

    Packing lunches the night before definitely lowers the stress of the morning! I like to rotate between leftovers or soup etc in my girls’ thermos and their yumboxes.

  310. Shasta August 8, 2017 at 9:19 am #

    I pack lunches the night before saves time in the morning

  311. Ashley Keinath August 8, 2017 at 9:22 am #

    It’s all about using dinner leftover is a creative way for lunch the next day!

  312. Stefanie R August 8, 2017 at 9:23 am #

    My lunch hack is alternating 5 lunch ideas, it’s a fun variety but consistent!

  313. virginia August 8, 2017 at 9:31 am #

    our favorite hack is remaking leftovers to something new and packaging the night before so no rush in the morning

  314. Heather L August 8, 2017 at 9:32 am #

    We just LOVE our Yumboxes!!

  315. Brandi August 8, 2017 at 9:37 am #

    I have been wanting to try YumBox! My son just started preschool and it looks absolutely perfect.

    My favorite hack? Freeze a yogurt tube to keep Lunch cool all day. It will be ready to eat by lunch time!

  316. Melissa Grubb August 8, 2017 at 9:49 am #

    My lunch hack is cutting sandwiches into fun shapes so it is more exciting for my son

  317. Samantha August 8, 2017 at 9:50 am #

    My favorite packed lunch hack is the Yumbox! No kidding– if it weren’t for the Yumbox, my 3 daughters would be eating stale chicken sandwiches and “pizza” from the lunch line. Simply fill each compartment with a different thing that is edible and–BOOM–lunch is ready.
    YumBox rocks my #MomLife

  318. Kristin Campbell August 8, 2017 at 9:52 am #

    My favorite lunch hack is cutting veggies into fun shapes, so my kids want to eat them.

  319. Lauren August 8, 2017 at 9:53 am #

    My hack is to prep fruits and veggies for the week ahead so they’re ready to go!

  320. Dayna F. August 8, 2017 at 10:10 am #

    Have all the sides, snacks pre-packed and ready to grab.

  321. Erin CM August 8, 2017 at 10:17 am #

    My favorite lunch hack is to freeze the yogurt pouches and use that had the ice pack.

  322. sharon shafran August 8, 2017 at 10:28 am #

    tuna sandwich and grapes so so good

  323. erika reyna August 8, 2017 at 10:53 am #

    My hack is cutting things into shapes, it makes it fun for the kids.

  324. Megan baltierra August 8, 2017 at 11:03 am #

    Just making sure i have everything i need at least the night before, and writing sweet little notes for my ladies to read at school 🙂

  325. Kendra Descamps August 8, 2017 at 11:22 am #

    Favorite lunch hack is pre-planning/packing, variety and following other mom’s who post about their lunch hacks!

  326. Soyon August 8, 2017 at 11:29 am #

    Packing the night before.

  327. Aundra Walker August 8, 2017 at 11:32 am #

    leftovers and frozen juice boxed

  328. Ashlie N August 8, 2017 at 11:54 am #

    We love our yumboxes. They have lasted for years and are still going strong. We love putting yogurt in them and no spills. 🙂 looking to add different styles this year!

  329. Kristin B August 8, 2017 at 12:08 pm #

    Planning ahead really saves my sanity when packing lunches. I love the printouts on Pinterest that help you “map” out what to pack in the Yumbox.

  330. Cherry August 8, 2017 at 12:15 pm #

    cutting food into fun shapes, adding cute food picks and packing the night before so its ready to go in the morning!

  331. Nikki McLain August 8, 2017 at 12:20 pm #

    Never tried one personally but a friend has one each for her kids and they look awesome!

  332. Jennifer August 8, 2017 at 12:25 pm #

    I love making fun lunches for my kiddo. Cookie cutters are quick and easy and make lunches more fun. I also sneak in a note with a joke or two to share.

  333. Amanda Suegav August 8, 2017 at 12:45 pm #

    Lunch hack I precutiing the fruit and veggies an using skills to pack lunch and snacks.

  334. Moriah August 8, 2017 at 12:46 pm #

    I’m addicted to yumbox!! I use them for my kids and me for school lunches and whenever we need to pack food on the go! My favorite thing is that they are leak proof!!

  335. Nubia August 8, 2017 at 12:52 pm #

    Just in time for school
    My girl is entering kinder and my son is starting 6 grade (big milestone for both)

  336. Nubia August 8, 2017 at 12:57 pm #

    Just in time for school
    My girl is entering kinder and my son is starting 6 grade (big mile stone for both)
    My favorite hack is if I have a really busy day the following morning I like to pack night before with stuff that won’t get Soggy, like crackers, slice cheese, deli ham, pepperoni, cut fruit, yogurt or apple sauce, Drink ready to go. In the morning just put everthgn in a lunch bag and ready to go.

  337. Amanda Joosten August 8, 2017 at 1:20 pm #

    My 7 year old is extremely picky so i usually let him pack his lunch for school because if i pack it he wont eat anything.. So he usually packs a lunchable or turkey sandwich and some snacks…

    My 2 year old when we go out eats anything.. Lol so usually pb&j. Carrots or grapes chips and cookies

  338. Joyce Purcell August 8, 2017 at 2:18 pm #

    Packing the night before

  339. Radha Muruganandam August 8, 2017 at 2:20 pm #

    Yumbox is the real lunch pack hack!!! And choice of food that are colorful & natural 🙂

  340. Marissa c August 8, 2017 at 3:11 pm #

    We like to add sprinkles to sandwiches or yogurt for a fun surprise.

  341. Renee Bertola August 8, 2017 at 3:15 pm #

    I don’t have a hack, the Yumbox itself is my lunch hack. It keeps everything organized and no leaks ever. Greatest lunchbox !

  342. sky hitt August 8, 2017 at 3:29 pm #

    my trick is cutting the food into smaller pieces to fit in to containers

  343. Sondra August 8, 2017 at 3:41 pm #

    My friend, Jen uses Yumbox for her kids and I LOVE all of her lunch posts! I have been wanting to try it for my own kids! Super excited for your giveaway!

    My favorite lunch hack is to do one big prep day for all meals and snacks. Then everything is already to go, just grab it! <3

  344. Norma August 8, 2017 at 3:52 pm #

    Making sure there are lots of colors & of course cookie cutter sandwiches!

  345. K. Lewis August 8, 2017 at 4:30 pm #

    I have been wanting to get one of these for my kid for so long…it would be super cool to win one!

  346. Emily August 8, 2017 at 6:12 pm #

    Thanks! I’ve been wanting one of these for a while!

  347. Cortney August 8, 2017 at 6:34 pm #

    YumBox upped my lunch game big time. My most useful hack is putting food on an toothpick or hour’derve stick. Anything. Fruit. Meats. Cheese. Sometimes all 3! My kids think its awesome when I scratch a message in the banana peel. You can see it by lunchtime because that park turns brown. Their minds were blown.

  348. LeeAnn Lutz August 8, 2017 at 6:44 pm #

    Our Yumbox hack? We pack our boxes the night before, and even two days before we need them. Everything stays fresh and dry. We have been using the same Yumboxes since my daughter was preschooler and my son was a pre-pre schooler! They are second and third graders now and our Yumboxes are still going strong. We really do love this product, it has made prepping l(and eating) lunch a breeze.

  349. Jennifer Say August 8, 2017 at 6:47 pm #

    It would be PBJ but PB is outlawed at school. So it would be my homemade version of a lunchable.

  350. Laurie August 8, 2017 at 7:30 pm #

    I use the small portion for nuts and trailmix.

  351. Devon Kahler August 8, 2017 at 8:21 pm #

    I have really been wanting to try the Yumbox! I have heard nothing but great things! My daughter starts kindergarten this year, and I think this would be perfect for her healthy home-packed lunches.

  352. Melissa DeCroteau August 8, 2017 at 8:59 pm #

    If I had a yumbox my havk would be fitting in as much yummy stuff as I can! I love all the dividers! They look so neat!

  353. Miriam Matheny August 8, 2017 at 9:02 pm #

    My trick for lunchbox packing is having a few different choices for each food group and letting my kids pick one from each group. It makes them feel in charge and gives them the age appropriate responsibility of packing the lunchbox themselves.

  354. Katherine August 8, 2017 at 9:08 pm #

    Freeze pbj’ s Sunday night for the whole week. Then kids just grab bagged sandwich, chips, fruit, and their water bottles and they’re set.

  355. Pei August 8, 2017 at 9:09 pm #

    My favorite hack is to cook up a big batch of rice, wait a bit to cool down. Scoop into single serving into individual potion using seran wraps and freeze.

  356. Monica P August 8, 2017 at 10:03 pm #

    Favorite lunch hack is making a freezing muffins!

  357. Cora August 8, 2017 at 11:05 pm #

    Pack lunches the night before. 🙂

  358. Apoorva August 8, 2017 at 11:22 pm #

    My friend recently recommend these lunchboxes and I loved it because of it appeal! Awesome giveaway

  359. Heather D August 8, 2017 at 11:31 pm #

    I love to make my own “lunchables.” my kids aren’t into sandwiches so small portions of a variety of different foods really appeals to them.

  360. Nicole betts August 8, 2017 at 11:46 pm #

    No real hack. I love yumbox cause it helps me think of all ghe food groups to pack and encourages variety. My daughter loves being able to “pick” her items from her yumbox selections

  361. Kelly Degner Calvo August 9, 2017 at 8:28 am #

    We love our yumboxes! Our favorite hack is putting a “surprise” in one of the compartments, under the food item. This makes the kiddos excited to eat from all the compartments and acts as a prize for finishing. It could be a candy, note, sticker or some other little prize.

  362. Marya Mann August 9, 2017 at 9:42 am #

    I always give my daughter choices. I find that if she helps in the decision making then she is more likely to eat what’s In her lunch bag!!

  363. Ocmamawithaplan August 9, 2017 at 10:11 am #

    Packing the night before and also pre cutting fruit and veggies on Sunday for the week. I also have a set basket with all food items so they just have to be thrown in.

  364. Jen August 9, 2017 at 10:22 am #

    Packing the night before!

  365. joanna gould August 9, 2017 at 10:47 am #

    love making my kids with no waste.

  366. joanna gould August 9, 2017 at 10:48 am #

    snack-o-rama lunches

  367. Belinda McDougal August 9, 2017 at 1:21 pm #

    I love that yumbox allows me to pack a variety of different types of foods and nothing leaks or spills into the other compartments. By far the best lunchbox available!

  368. Noelle August 9, 2017 at 2:17 pm #

    Love it! And so do my kids! Best hack…fill it with finger foods that are healthy

  369. Rachel August 9, 2017 at 2:19 pm #

    I usually pack my daughter’s lunch while I’m putting dinner leftovers away. I try and keep containers of washed and cut up raw fruits and veggies so I can just grab handfuls quickly.

  370. Lindsay August 9, 2017 at 2:34 pm #

    This is our first year packing lunches! But my sons fav lunch is PB&J with peppers and hummus on the side and strawberries!

  371. Jennifer Taber August 9, 2017 at 3:28 pm #

    We love yumbox! They make lunch packing so convenient!

  372. Angie noffsinger August 9, 2017 at 3:44 pm #

    A thermos for leftovers

  373. Ryan origonn August 9, 2017 at 5:03 pm #

    My daughter is just starting kindergarten next week, so my lunch packing journey is only beginning!!

  374. Sally August 9, 2017 at 5:26 pm #

    I love the idea of a bento box exspesally since I have picky eaters.It offers a variety of different foods to make sure they actually eat at lunch time.

  375. Roberta Dunton August 9, 2017 at 5:31 pm #

    Make lunch fun by having a variety of things my child likes available.

  376. Erica Adams August 9, 2017 at 6:33 pm #

    I don’t have any hacks yet, but I’m looking forward to learning some.. my daughter starts preschool this year so this is my first time packing lunches. Can’t wait to try Yumbox

  377. Jessica Ricks August 9, 2017 at 6:47 pm #

    My son is most excited about getting to take a lunch box to preschool this year for the first time. He would LOVE the Yumboxes!

  378. Jackie Keller August 9, 2017 at 7:27 pm #

    My son starts kinder in 12 days and I am so looking forward to packing all of his favorite foods in a yumbox!

  379. Jenette August 9, 2017 at 8:15 pm #

    My lunch has is having a container for each type of food. Also I always prepare lunch the night before.

  380. Nancy August 9, 2017 at 8:42 pm #

    Leftovers will always be the best hack. 🙂 Also having a few no-no standbys in the fridge for crazy mornings ie Babybells, apple sauce, etc.

  381. Ashley Taylor August 9, 2017 at 9:10 pm #

    I don’t have any lunch box hacks yet…my son is getting ready to start kindergarten and I’ve been researching lunch boxes and luckily came across the yumbox. I love the design, it’s exactly what I’m looking for. Would love to win this giveaway!

  382. Angela August 9, 2017 at 10:14 pm #

    We love freezing yogurt tubes – works as an extra “ice pack” and is a nice cool treat!

  383. Angela August 9, 2017 at 10:21 pm #

    Love this giveaway! I love my son loves home made lunchables and the yumbox makes it look like a real one.

  384. Pat F August 9, 2017 at 10:53 pm #

    I pack most of the lunch the night before just make the sandwich in the morning.. saves time!

  385. Huma August 9, 2017 at 11:58 pm #

    My favorite hack is make potato stuffing a few days ahead, so then making sandwiches is much easier.

  386. Patricia Waite August 10, 2017 at 1:06 am #

    My son practically lives on chicken nuggets so occasionally I will heat some up and put them in a thermos as a special treat.

  387. Stephanie T August 10, 2017 at 7:13 am #

    Lunchbox hack = freeze yogurt for a frozen treat.

  388. Meghan August 10, 2017 at 7:39 am #

    Loving this option for lunch boxes. My daughter is starting school My first baby and her first time at school. So worried about her eating and opening things this is great!

  389. Deven August 10, 2017 at 7:40 am #

    My daughter has carried the yum box for the last 2 years to school. Her and I both love it!! The new emoji insert is too cute!!

  390. Gina Hodges August 10, 2017 at 7:52 am #

    Packing lunch the night before!

  391. Ashley Pate August 10, 2017 at 8:22 am #

    Definitely making lunch the night before helps, especially with 4 to do!! 😛

  392. Leanna O August 10, 2017 at 8:41 am #

    Love using cookie cutters for fun sami shapes the kids will actually eat.

  393. Jennifer August 10, 2017 at 8:58 am #

    Warming leftover that stay warm for lunch!!

  394. Brittney Mothner August 10, 2017 at 9:15 am #

    pickles! my kids don’t realize they’re secretly vegetables.

  395. Amanda Fi August 10, 2017 at 9:39 am #

    There ate two lunch hacks I use all the time because when your packing lunch for 3 boys for school & the husbands work lunch 4lunch every morning gets to be a lot.
    My family eats a lot of pb&j so I will make the weeks peanut butter and jelly sandwiches then freeze them so each morning I can pull them out of the freeze put them in each persons lunch bag and by the time lunch rolls around they are good to go and not soggy. Another main hack I use is for apples we love fruit especially apples but once you cut an apple it turns brown. So each morning I will cut the apples then pull them back up whole and wrap a rubber band around it so it doesn’t turn brown and everybody has a nice non Brown Apple lol.

    I’ve never tried yumbox but I would love for my 4 guys to try them out or at least my 3 littles. And the only reason I have not purchased any is because if I buy one kid one the other 2 want the same thing no matter what it is so budgeting is everything even when it comes to lunch.

    Thanks for the chance much appreciated

  396. Ashley C August 10, 2017 at 9:51 am #

    I use cookie cutters for sandwiches or i decorate things that come in packages (like turning a cheese stick into a snowman!)

  397. Katie rowe August 10, 2017 at 9:56 am #

    We love Yumbox! Kids always get well-rounded lunch and they are excited to pick out foods to eat and they know there is ALWAYS a fruit and veggie! That in itself is a win for us!

  398. Katie August 10, 2017 at 9:58 am #

    I actually love packing my yumboxes. Both for myself and my son! It makes me be creative about what is going in and I pack fresh food rather than tossing in packaged garbage.

  399. Rachel Kronvold August 10, 2017 at 10:16 am #

    Our daughter loves when I pack either GFDF shrimp spring rolls with fresh fruit and GFDF chow mein noodles or taco salad with DF cheese and sour cream, plus fresh fruit. Our son loves when I pack a homemade lunchable: GFDF crackers, DF cheese slices, GFDF uncured lunch meat and fresh fruit.

  400. Erin August 10, 2017 at 10:19 am #

    I keep it simple, cut things into triangles or circles. Lol

  401. Lindsay August 10, 2017 at 10:22 am #

    Packing as much as possible the night before! Every minute counts in the morning!

  402. Kerri Learning August 10, 2017 at 10:24 am #

    Packing smaller portions of a variety of foods.

  403. Mandy Brown August 10, 2017 at 10:24 am #

    I love being able to prepack portions the night before!

  404. Steff Bakker August 10, 2017 at 10:25 am #

    What is your favorite packed lunch hack?

    Cutting grapes or cherry tomatoes by placing them on plate and then putting another plate on top of them. Add a little pressures to the top plate while sliding a large knife between the two plates. Lift the top plate off and, voila, you have grapes and/or tomatoes neatly slice in half.

  405. Deepti August 10, 2017 at 10:27 am #

    Fingers crossed. Would love to win this giveaway for my daughter as she’ll be starting school soon.

  406. Deborah August 10, 2017 at 10:30 am #

    My 3rd grader is going back to school in less than 2 weeks and she would love to win a yumbox! Her favorite lunch is a homemade version of lunchables with ham, turkey, cheese, crackers, cucumbers and strawberries.

  407. Amanda August 10, 2017 at 10:32 am #

    My favorite hack is using the Yumbox with silicone cupcake holders in the sandwich section to add color and fun for my daughters.

  408. Jeni August 10, 2017 at 10:32 am #

    Obligatory comment!

  409. Katie Glowicki August 10, 2017 at 10:33 am #

    We bought our first yumboxes a couple of weeks ago, and I am learning quickly that 2 is not enough!

  410. Stephanie L August 10, 2017 at 10:34 am #

    Prepped and frozen proteins (meatballs, veggie burgers, grilled chicken chunks), and cut up veggies and fruits in the fridge. I also have a great weekly yumbox printable I bought from underthelighttable on Etsy that makes planning really easy. https://www.etsy.com/listing/459078206/instant-download-lunch-planner-ninja?ref=shop_home_feat_4

  411. Kristen August 10, 2017 at 10:36 am #

    My kids love when I make them munchables (homemade lunchables, mom lunchables). Much healthier than actual lunchables, but just as fun.

  412. Abbey August 10, 2017 at 10:37 am #

    I love to pack lunches that have protein, fruit and vegetable, and some sort of whole grain. …. That said, I don’t always succeed, but am trying to train my kids to pack lunches with those components and the yumboxes with the graphics of the food groups in the bottom definitely help!

  413. Hazel M. August 10, 2017 at 10:40 am #

    My favorite packed lunch hack is to use cookie cutters for sandwiches and cheese slices and fun picks for fruits and veggies. Anything to make my boy smile 🙂

  414. Pamela August 10, 2017 at 10:41 am #

    Why buy prepackaged food when I can make helathier choices for our little one and control the portions while saving on containers and wrapping to deal with!

  415. Erica Hemphill August 10, 2017 at 10:47 am #

    I love how these two work together!

  416. Karen Overton August 10, 2017 at 10:48 am #

    yumboxes are my favorite way to make lunches!!

  417. Rose August 10, 2017 at 10:49 am #

    Love yumbox lunch boxes for my kids!

  418. Heather Wicklander August 10, 2017 at 10:50 am #

    My favorite hack is really just to prepare fruits and veggies ASAP after getting home from the store. We cut carrots, peppers, melons, etc and put them in storage containers that are easy to pull our for any meal, and super easy to pull from when packing our Yumbox!

  419. Cathleen Mills August 10, 2017 at 10:50 am #

    I love bento style boxes for my kids. Makes cleaning up a breeze and no lost lunch containers. We enjoy using silicone cups to separate food within compartments. The kids think they are super fun.

  420. Lindsay Abstein August 10, 2017 at 10:54 am #

    My favorite lunch hack is using the sandwich yum box compartment for salad for my littles. Also putting a few sprinkles on yogurt.

  421. Leslie C August 10, 2017 at 10:54 am #

    Kids love organizing their food with the different sections. “They cannot touch each other” lol

  422. Denise Mora August 10, 2017 at 10:54 am #

    We follow the same types of hacks : cheese and pepperoni or belvita and fruit or pb & j. My daughter is picky and refuses school lunch.

  423. Sherry August 10, 2017 at 10:55 am #

    Using up leftovers.

  424. Bethany August 10, 2017 at 10:56 am #

    Just ordered my first yumbox can’t wait to fill it will healthy items for my daugher

  425. Amie Daniels August 10, 2017 at 10:57 am #

    I pack a “momable” instead of a lunchable. I’m able to make them cheaper and control the quality of the ingredients! !

  426. Hannah August 10, 2017 at 10:57 am #

    I have a business that makes fruit & veggie purée parfaits cups and baked goods which take the challenge out of packing a nutritious lunch box! @fraichelavie http://www.fraichelavie.com

  427. Dana G August 10, 2017 at 11:01 am #

    Love to pack fruits and veggies in these!

  428. Denise August 10, 2017 at 11:02 am #

    Fav lunch for my son is a healthy salad with some grapes and cheese on the side.

  429. Andrea L August 10, 2017 at 11:11 am #

    I love being able to pack fresh fruit and know they won’t dry out, become a drippy mess, or get squished!

  430. melissa August 10, 2017 at 11:12 am #

    silicone cupcake holders

  431. kelly August 10, 2017 at 11:12 am #

    My favorite hack is to pack the night before. With yumbox, everything stays the right texture all night and morning!

  432. Rebecca Phillips August 10, 2017 at 11:12 am #

    My favorite hack is to pack multiple lunches at once using the same style box so you can just drop the food in the same spots assembly line style.

  433. Wendy August 10, 2017 at 11:13 am #

    Yumbox in itself is my favorite lunch hack! My kiddos are actually able to finish their entire lunch in the measly 18 minutes the get for lunch at school!

  434. KELLI August 10, 2017 at 11:13 am #

    I am sooo excited to use this brand of lunchbox for my son this year! He is going to be super excited when it delivers shortly!

  435. Staci A August 10, 2017 at 11:14 am #

    I make big batches of muffins or “cookies” so that I can just pull them out of the freezer each day. Such a time saver!

  436. Evelyn Berghauser August 10, 2017 at 11:16 am #

    lunch hacks….hmmmm….pre-packing snacks the night before!

  437. Courtney Martin August 10, 2017 at 11:17 am #

    This will be my first year with needing to pack a lunch- can’t wait to try out the yum box!

  438. Kristen August 10, 2017 at 11:19 am #

    Lunch hack is prepping!!

  439. Jill Crownover August 10, 2017 at 11:20 am #

    We usually make 2 lunches at a time. Sandwich lunch for the first day, homemade healthy Lunchable for the second day.

  440. Carrie August 10, 2017 at 11:21 am #

    Favorite lunch hack is washing all fruit on Sundays after grocery shopping so we just have to throw it in the lunch box the night before.

  441. Amanda August 10, 2017 at 11:22 am #

    I have never had to pack lunches before, but I hope to make the process easier by packing lunches the night before!

  442. Stacie E. August 10, 2017 at 11:25 am #

    Lunchbox hack? Using silicone cupcake wrappers to seperate things in a bigger section! Keeps eggs away from crackers and it’s great.

  443. Micah Woodley August 10, 2017 at 11:26 am #

    I use big cookie cutters to cut off the crusts on the bread (what is it with kids and crusts!). It makes cute shapes and the kids love them!

  444. Teresa Beeler August 10, 2017 at 11:26 am #

    Prepackage items in serving size containers so that you can grab and go!

  445. Cristina Moidel August 10, 2017 at 11:27 am #

    Planning ahead and keeping it simple!

  446. kevin August 10, 2017 at 11:27 am #

    Hoping to start to explore my favorite ways to pack it for my son!

  447. Jenni (mommy of Sophi) August 10, 2017 at 11:31 am #

    I look forward to testing out its leak proof-ness!

  448. Mika August 10, 2017 at 11:35 am #

    We love our yumbox! We used it for a year, and plan to use again for the new school year! we pre pack lunch night before.

  449. Heather Poet Johnson August 10, 2017 at 11:36 am #

    I love yumbox because it truly seals everything in and my daughter loves it because everything looks so beautiful he put together. Some of our favorite combinations are lots of fruits and veggies with the yummy quesadilla and chocolate covered sunflower seeds in the middle.

  450. Anabel August 10, 2017 at 11:40 am #

    We love Yumbox! My son starts preschool soon and I’m excited for him to use yumbox!

  451. bernardina sims August 10, 2017 at 11:41 am #

    I cut small shapes out of bread, cheese, fruit for the small little fingers to eat!

  452. Amanda Canning August 10, 2017 at 11:45 am #

    I have my first kindergartener, and school hasn’t started yet, but that hasn’t stopped me from trying out the yumbox! So far my favorite lunch time hack buying the seaweed snacks and cutting the sheets in half. They fit perfectly in one of the smaller cubbies. I have also put raisins in the dip compartment as my kid’s “sweets”. Already in love with my yumbox and can’t wait to use it this year for school!

  453. Sarah Schoolfield August 10, 2017 at 11:46 am #

    We love packing frozen yogurt tubes in our Yumbox…by the time lunch rolls around, they’re still cold but soft! Bonus – they help keep other foods cool!

  454. Gayle August 10, 2017 at 11:55 am #

    I use a butterfly cookie cutter to avoid the crusts of sandwiches being left behind.

  455. Allison G August 10, 2017 at 12:00 pm #

    We love our yumbox! We like to fill it with yummy fruits and a sandwich!

  456. Allison Geleng August 10, 2017 at 12:00 pm #

    We love our yumbox! We love to fill it with fruits and a sandwich!

  457. Alli August 10, 2017 at 12:01 pm #

  458. Sarah August 10, 2017 at 12:02 pm #

    Lunchbox hack: frozen foods to keep stuff cold that will thaw by lunch (berries in yogurt, bread on sandwich, muffins)

  459. Christina Theodorakos August 10, 2017 at 12:03 pm #

    I love to put small cheese and spinach pies. My kids love them.

  460. Brit August 10, 2017 at 12:10 pm #

    Love cutting up veggie shapes and in the bread for my boys!

  461. Karissa August 10, 2017 at 12:23 pm #

    I love packing the night before!

  462. Marfo August 10, 2017 at 12:32 pm #

    Perfect for packing the night before!

  463. Kelly Gridley August 10, 2017 at 12:35 pm #

    So excited to stumble upon your page today! Love what you have to offer.

  464. Elizabeth August 10, 2017 at 12:39 pm #

    Assigning days of the week to a food theme – Monday Finger Foods (cheese cubes, crackers, bite-size fruits/veggies), Tuesday Tuna (or chicken salad/egg salad sandwich/wrap, side salad), Wednesday Breakfast (yogurt, muffin, fruit), Thursday Thermos (soup, leftovers), Friday Favorite (kids’ favorite- pb&j, cheese/salami, etc).

  465. Catriona August 10, 2017 at 12:40 pm #

    My son loves it when I use the yum box for a lunch of yogurt and granola with fruit on the side.

  466. Shannon August 10, 2017 at 12:43 pm #

    Favorite lunch hack is to make a batch of homemade chicken nuggets with ground chicken. Freeze them. Pack the night before. By lunchtime they are thawed and ready to eat.

  467. Irene August 10, 2017 at 12:56 pm #

    Looking forward to getting one for my daughter!

  468. Angela August 10, 2017 at 12:57 pm #

    I love ice packs. You can pack nearly anything in a lunchbox with the right ice pack

  469. Lauren Sapp August 10, 2017 at 1:04 pm #

    We like to freeze yogurt so it thaws by lunchtime in our lunchboxes!

  470. Hilary Lee August 10, 2017 at 1:07 pm #

    This is my first year trying to figure out school lunches for an extremely picky 3-year old. Just bought YumBox on recommendation from a co-worker and plan on experimenting with recipes onsite and from Pinterest. We’ll see what she likes!

  471. Natasha August 10, 2017 at 1:16 pm #

    We don’t have one yet but my son starts K this year and I think this is going to be the best option for him! All laid out in front of him and no opening a bunch of things so hopefully he’ll have plenty of time to eat and I’m excited to do fun things with his lunch hopefully.

  472. Rana Durham August 10, 2017 at 1:17 pm #

    i love freezing fruit as extra cooling pack .

  473. Natasha August 10, 2017 at 1:19 pm #

    Oops I commented before I saw the giveaway “favorite hack” part. I haven’t had to pack lunch yet but probably packing the night before will definitely be key and trying to make it fun. He’ll like the bento style anyway though!

  474. Kina August 10, 2017 at 1:20 pm #

    My favorite hack is to pack it the night before. Grab and go in the morning!

  475. Lana Aho August 10, 2017 at 1:24 pm #

    My favorite lunch box hack is PLANNING.
    I Make a lunch meal plan for the week and then I
    Don’t have to wonder what I am going to pack for lunch tomorrow!

  476. Diem Dao August 10, 2017 at 1:25 pm #

    I would love to try one . My sister has one for her kid and it looks awesome .

  477. Clara August 10, 2017 at 1:32 pm #

    my favorite hack is to always have a jar of tomato or pesto sauce at home for instant pasta or pizza for packed lunch. and always quicker to have everything prepped the night before.

  478. Diana August 10, 2017 at 1:34 pm #

    We use a flat water bottle that looks a lot like a lunchbox cooler & freeze the water inside, which makes it a water bottle AND a lunchbox cooler in one!

  479. Jen August 10, 2017 at 1:49 pm #

    Can’t wait to pack yumbox lunches for my daughter. I bought small silicon cups to pack within the yumbox because she likes to graze on a lot of variety!

  480. Danny N Charlotte Garza August 10, 2017 at 1:49 pm #

    Apple slices, PBJ sandwich with milk is a favorite lunch.

  481. Christina F August 10, 2017 at 1:52 pm #

    I love making trail mix for my daughter.. that way I can add things I know she’ll eat!

  482. Fernanda Galvez August 10, 2017 at 2:13 pm #

    My favorite lunch box hack is very simple, make sure to pack it the night before! Really loving using the Yum box, it is so simple to pack a fun lunch, and my son loves the variety !

  483. Rachel August 10, 2017 at 2:13 pm #

    Using dinner leftovers for lunches!

  484. Carly M August 10, 2017 at 2:16 pm #

  485. Emily August 10, 2017 at 2:18 pm #

    We love our yumbox! We use silicone muffin cups a lot to help make lunch more colorful and separate cheese from crackers or other foods in the bigger compartment 😉

  486. Beth August 10, 2017 at 2:32 pm #

    Homemade meatballs and chicken nuggets fit perfectly in little lunches.

  487. katye bombassaro August 10, 2017 at 2:42 pm #

    My hack is making my kids make and pack their lunch! I leave out the foods they ask for and they do the work…<3

  488. Natalie August 10, 2017 at 2:45 pm #

    Homemade “lunchables”- cheese slices, Canadian bacon slices, fruit, veggies

  489. Emily N. August 10, 2017 at 2:53 pm #

    Would love to have one of these for my daughter’s school lunch…we pack one everyday!

  490. Maria August 10, 2017 at 2:59 pm #

  496. Jennifer Davis August 10, 2017 at 3:15 pm #

    Letting my daughter help so there’s no waste

  497. Joyce Evans August 10, 2017 at 3:18 pm #

    My son loves to snack so when there are a lot of options he’ll eat them all! Love having a container with places to pack many things.

  498. Brenda Haines August 10, 2017 at 3:19 pm #

    Freezing grapes is a great lunch hack. Nice and cold when they have their lunch.

  499. katy S August 10, 2017 at 3:27 pm #

    would love to win this, I know if I could get one I could talk my hubby into more

  500. Rebecca Layton August 10, 2017 at 3:38 pm #

    My favorite Lunch box hacks are home made cracker stackers and frozen mini water as an ice pack. Thank you for the opportunity!

  501. April August 10, 2017 at 3:45 pm #

    Packing lunch the night before and baking for the week on the weekends always a winner! 🙂

  502. Ma Ren August 10, 2017 at 3:45 pm #

    We love the yumbox. With bread, vegetables, egg and fruit. Hmm….

  503. Heather August 10, 2017 at 3:45 pm #

    Presentation is everything with my kid. If it looks fun, she’s more likely to eat it.

  504. Meg August 10, 2017 at 3:55 pm #

    I like to use silicone muffin cups to separate two of the items in one compartment. Two kinds of crackers or two different veggies etc

  505. Krissie Lambert August 10, 2017 at 3:58 pm #

    My favorite hack is cutting fun shapes into food 🙂 my toddler loves it!

  506. Jessica Herron August 10, 2017 at 4:14 pm #

    I always prep fruit and veggies for the week ahead… major time saver!!

  507. Lisa Burningham August 10, 2017 at 4:37 pm #

    My favourite lunchbox hack is to use cookie cutters to cut my son’s sandwich into fun shapes and characters! I use small cutters for veggies, cheese and fruits too!

  508. Jillian Wisniewski August 10, 2017 at 4:49 pm #

    We love the shapes as well as rolled lunch meat, cheese and lettuce. The kids go nuts!

  509. Marie Speers August 10, 2017 at 4:52 pm #

    We love our yumbox! My son eats so much more on the days we pack using our yumbox!

  510. Mary finley August 10, 2017 at 5:00 pm #

    We love our Yumbox. I recommend it all the time and want to get another.

  511. Cassandra Watson August 10, 2017 at 5:14 pm #

    Favorite hack is to prepare ahead of time. Saturdays are for shopping and Sunday for prepping!

  512. Tasha August 10, 2017 at 5:42 pm #

    So excited for the chance to win! We love our Yumbox! Thanks!

  513. Melissa August 10, 2017 at 5:43 pm #

    Reading some of these comments I feel like I’ve been lacking in the creativity department, BUT my favorite hack is making batch foods that I can freeze and pull out the night before. It forces me to make lunches at night so I’m not running around in the AM and I can have more variety for my son’s lunches. His favorites so far are mini corndog muffins, pizza wheels, and ham and cheese rolls.

  514. Sarah M August 10, 2017 at 5:54 pm #

    My favorite lunch hack is to make homemade uncrustables and freeze them ahead of time. I also freeze yogurt, and applesauce, so that it keeps everything else cold as it thaws.

  515. Nina Young August 10, 2017 at 6:00 pm #

    This will make a scary first day of Kindergarten so much better! My hack is a frozen water bottle that doubles as an ice pack!

  516. Lillian G August 10, 2017 at 6:03 pm #

    I like prepping all the fruits and veggies for the week!

  517. Mylisha Consalvo August 10, 2017 at 6:04 pm #

    We love to add frozen fruit in our lunches! Helps keep stuff cold while also giving my kids a treat!

  518. Irene cheng August 10, 2017 at 6:17 pm #

    This will be a new year of packing lunches- but I love having a variety of items on hand to pack- some favorites are pea crisps, rasins, cheese, and chicken nuggets.

  519. Felicity August 10, 2017 at 6:21 pm #

    So looking forward to trying these. My sister in Australia swears by them.

  520. Darrien Liong August 10, 2017 at 6:26 pm #

    One of my favorite packed lunch hacks is freezing a water/juice bottle to keep everything cold.

  521. R almaguer August 10, 2017 at 6:29 pm #

    I love that I can make my own lunchable using these yumboxes.

  522. Tonya C.. August 10, 2017 at 6:35 pm #

    We have two active kids that help pack their stuff. One container would be easier, and make clean up less for me 😉

  523. Myrta August 10, 2017 at 6:56 pm #

    I love to use leftovers and switch it up so that no food goes to waste. With five kids, you kinda have to. Lol! The kids think it’s a different meal so they don’t get bored.

  524. April August 10, 2017 at 6:59 pm #

    Prep the apples and oranges because the kids don’t have time to do it. And make the sandwich in the morning if possible so it’s not soggy. Also have a few varieties of baked cookies in the freezer so they can have a different treat.

  525. Coleen Hill August 10, 2017 at 7:04 pm #

    My favorite lunchbox hack is to prep fruits and veggies on Sunday to last the whole week, then on a school morning, just grab-and-go!C

  526. Shanthi August 10, 2017 at 7:19 pm #

    My favorite lunch hack is having lots of vegetables and fruit cut up and ready to go in the fridge so I just have to pull out a handful dump it in lunchboxes and off we go! Having a variety helps the kids eat more to!

  527. Michael Kling August 10, 2017 at 7:45 pm #

    I like the pizza wheels my wife makes ahead of time and freezes!

  528. Katrina K August 10, 2017 at 7:47 pm #

    Favorite hack is silicon mufflin liners 🙂 to divide up larger spots

  529. Katie August 10, 2017 at 7:49 pm #

    Fave hack: stocking up on non-perishables liked dried fruit and pretzels so I always have enough variety to fill the lunchbox if the fridge is bare.

    My favorite packed lunch hack is to pack a variety of different yummy and healthy items such as hard boiled eggs, baby carrots, grapes, sliced apples with peanut butter, string cheese and nuts.

    Packed lunch hack – we do “snack plates”. The kids load their Yumboxes full to the brim with easy to grab, easy to eat items – salami, string cheese, trail mix, nuts, sliced apples, grapes, and a few chocolate chips for dessert and off we go!

    packing the night before for sure!!! love to pack the lunch while dishing up dinner – then it has time to cool before putting in the fridge and makes sure there’s enough leftovers!

    Prep prep prep is the best hack! I make muffins, banana bread, cookies and freeze them ahead of time. Put them in my sons lunch the night before. Also chopping up veggies for the week and utilizing left overs!

    Thank you. I prepare part of lunch the night before but cook fresh veggies in the morning. I would love bento boxes so the foods are divided.

    We love DIY lunchables, triscuits/cheese/ham or pepperoni. My girls are big fans of bell peppers but are starting to like cucumbers too. And fruit, they really love their fruit!

    yumboxes make it easy to give my kids lots of good-for-them food options. I love having them help pack lunches and pick out what protein, fruit, etc that they want to include!
