Yumbox now available in Australia
Victoria based Mini Hippo Imports has taken on the distribution of Yumbox, a newly inspired bento lunch box designed in the US.
Yumbox is a reusable, compact, leak proof, easy to use, educational and kid-friendly lunch box. Its divided food tray accommodates half cup portions of the five main food groups. Yumbox’s decorative tray was designed to be an educational tool that assists parents in packing a balanced meal and also helps to reinforce healthy eating habits in children.
Mini Hippo Imports’ main focus is on finding quality lifestyle products for families in Australia and New Zealand. “It’s essential to me that all Mini Hippo Imports products deliver on both functionality and style,” explains founder Megan Mallen.
“Having a background in paediatric nursing I am very aware of the importance of good nutrition. The Yumbox creators have simplified the sometimes tricky process of getting children to enjoy healthy food and we are so happy to deliver this innovative product into the hands of parents across Australia and New Zealand.”
Yumbox responds to a growing need for products that assist parents with portion control says Maia Neumann, co-founder of Yumbox.
“We believe that Yumbox’s US success will be repeated in Australia, where there is growing interest in a more healthy approach to lunch packing and general child nutrition,” she says.
“We are delighted to be working with Mini Hippo Imports, which is well established in the Australian market and already represents a good mix of complementary children’s products. Megan Mallen, of Mini Hippo Imports, is a mom of two young children and really understands the product, its unique design features’ benefits and how a product like Yumbox can improve nutritional education for the very young. We hope that working together with Megan we will make Yumbox the lunchbox of choice in Australia and New Zealand. Our goal is to make Yumbox easily and affordably accessible to Australian and New Zealand parents and kids.”
