nspiration came from the French school lunches served to Maia’s kids daily. The emphasis in France is on balance, variety, taste and nutrition. Yumbox was dreamed up to allow us all to replicate that same balance and nutrition for our kids, regardless of where we live. Now everyone (even kids) can pack a nutritionally balanced meal using Yumbox!
Still, building a meals-on-the-go box that would accommodate a variety of foods would need some fresh ideas. We wanted a box housing a bento-like tray, with one lid that sealed all compartments; designated food groups to encourage and assist parents in packing a balanced meal; built-in portion control; a cool design and illustrations to make this little box more of an adventure in good nutrition than just plain old lunch!
These thoughts were the seeds to creating Yumbox. Together we set out to take our vision of an ideal meals on-the-go box and make it a reality!
