Munchbox Lunchbox Review
New this year is the Munchbox lunchbox. Read the Munchbox lunchbox review and decide if it’s right for you.
Age range: 7+ (depending on appetite and whether the child takes a separate fruit break).
Where to buy: Munchbox
Best for: Kids who like to pack wet items in their lunchbox and have a larger appetite.
For all other info, head back to the review table.
It’s leakproof and it has multiple compartments. Obviously, the design is very reminiscent of the yumbox, but with squarer shapes internally. In fact this lunchbox and the many incarnations of it that have appeared on Aussie and US shores this year have raised a great deal of controversy in the lunchbox world.
The range comes in lots of bright fun colours and all have a removable tray. The lid remains connected to the base when open.
This is the munchbox maxi and it will hold a full sandwich.
The container holds a lot of food and if you purchase an additional tray that is plain, the tray can go through the dishwasher.
Cons: I have to admit, the instructions that came with the Munchbox were misleading, it says you can only pack dry foods, but then contradicts suggesting you can pack yoghurt.
I have seen a lot of plasticware over the years, including the 24 lunchboxes in this review. Despite a slip piece of paper that has the materials used, there are no plastic markings on the outer tray or inner tray of the lunchbox to indicate what it is made from. I find that worrying, as many countries require this and with recent press about dangerous substances (not just BPA) in plastic ware, I need to know what is holding my kids food.
I paid for this lunchbox myself, but was sent a clear tray as apparently the trays with drawings and wordings aren’t dishwasher safe. With the yumbox tapas coming very shortly to Australian shores, stick with the yumbox brand!
I purchased this lunchbox to review.
