With the new school term underway I thought I’d do a lunchbox review of the awesome Bentgo Kids Lunchbox.
Bentgo kids is a durable, leakproof, bento style lunchbox. This lunchbox is designed for kids aged 3-7 but I think it would suit toddlers as well as small appetite kids. It is BPA and PVC free.
The lunchbox has 5 compartments which are each individually sealed and completely leakproof to prevent any food leakages or mixing of foods. You can pack yoghurt in one, carrots in another as well as a sandwich, raisins and watermelon (or anything your heart desires) all the while everything is separate; all in one box! No separate containers or bags, the kids open it up and everything is there ready to go. This frees up their precious eating time and also means only one container to keep track of, no lids to lose and less for us to have to wash!
The lunchbox is compiled of an outer and a tray. Once inserted the tray sort of clicks in because it’s on a slant on one edge. It will not get stuck to the lid which happens often in the yumbox. A lot of people compare it to the yumbox original but I can say from experience in using both the bentgo and yumbox it is much easier to pack things like sandwiches and wraps and in the bentgo.
Container Dimensions: 21.6cm x 16.6cm x 4.6cm
Tray Dimensions: 20.6cm x 15.1cm x 4cm
Capacity: 3 cups (to the top including the dipper)
Bentgo Kids compared to yumbox original, both hold the same amount of food but the larger cavity on the Bentgo is much more user friendly, I like the style better and also the rubber edging for durability and non slip.
The bentgo kids has 2 clasps which are easy enough for young ones to open and keep lunch nice and secure.
Another great feature on the bentgo kids is the rubber edging. It makes it durable to deal with kids dropping it and it also makes the lunchbox non slip. This is especially helpful when it’s on the kids laps as it prevents their lunch falling on the ground or slipping off the table.
It has really cool hinges as well which I find makes it easier to close.
So how does it fare packing lunch? Here is a few of the many lunches we’ve packed in the bentgo kids, it’s extremely versatile, fun and durable. A big thumbs up from us!
These are my personal opinions and experiences from using the bentgo kids Lunchbox.
