As summer comes to a close, back-to-school shopping draws near. As you shop for sustainable back-to-school supplies this year, pay extra attention to your child’s lunch box. With an increasing number of reports pointing to unhealthy school lunches, sending your children off to school with a homemade lunch is the best way to ensure they’re getting a nutritious meal at school. Finding the perfect lunch box can be a pain, however. Conventional lunch boxes are often difficult to clean, uncreative and difficult to pack traditional food containers in, leaving wasteful plastic baggies the easiest option.
Yubo lunch boxes take the waste out of packed lunches and put the fun back in them. Made from BPA-free plastic, the yubo lunch box’s hard outer shell is dishwasher safe and easy to clean! Inside the lunch box, the yubo comes equipped with three sizes of custom containers that are perfect for holding child-sized portions of food. Mix and match the containers depending on what your child wants for lunch that day. The custom-made icepack fits neatly into the bottom of the yubo lunch box, eliminating the hassle of trying to awkwardly pack a lunch around a clunky icepack.
On the outside of the container, the yubo lunch box comes with an interchangeable face plate that lets your children express their creativity. Shop yubo’s website for a wide variety of lunch box designs that will appeal to both boys and girls. You can also custom design a nameplate to feature your child’s name, giving their lunch box a:(n extra personal touch. The yubo lunch box also comes in three fun colors—pink, blue and orange—furthering your child’s options.
Yubo lunch boxes can be purchased at Toys R Us, Amazon.com, Lunchboxes.com and on the yubo website. A standard lunch box costs $21.95. A deluxe lunch box comes with three containers and the custom icepack and costs $29.95. Faceplates range in price from $6.95 to $13.95 for a set of two (front and back of the lunch box).
