Love Your Lunch Box and WIN


As mothers, we understand the importance of nutrition in childhood development. It’s not just important for the obvious physical development though. From the moment our child is born, food plays an integral role in the development of our young child’s brain function and behaviour.

We may know the importance and benefits of good nutrition, but it’s often an uphill battle selling nutritional food to our youngsters. It’s even more of a battle when you add in all the advertising for packaged snacks and fast food targeted at little people and busy Mums!

Well it’s time for a makeover this month. A makeover of the lunch box variety!

We’d LOVE you to join us.

Healthy, nutritional food doesn’t have to be boring. This month we are giving you the chance to win a a Yumbox Bento lunchbox and matching So Young Insulated Lunchbox Bag combo valued at $70, by inviting you to makeover your lunchbox and share how you did it ~ the successes, the things that didn't quite work and the resulting transformation for you and your family.

But you won’t be going it alone. Here’s how we will help:

We will be introducing you to two experts in the field of health, nutrition and well-being. Our experts will be sharing their tips for packing practical, healthy, lunch boxes for kids of all ages. And what’s even better is that they are busy, real life Mums just like us!

We’ve got LOADS of creative lunch box ideas from Yum Box and will be sharing these through the closed Facebook Forum, so make sure you click here to join.

We will be uploading our own real life lunch boxes on Instagram. Be sure to follow along and you can join in too by using the tag #loveyourlunchbox @sustainababy.

You can even follow our dedicated board on Pinterest.
