Healthy LunchBox Ideas With Omiebox
There’s no better feeling than knowing you’re sending your kid(s) off to school packed with a healthy, balanced lunch. It makes me so happy to know we can now send them to school confident they will be well fed, eating real food from home in a container that won’t leak and make a complete mess in their book bags.
Sandwiches are great too, especially for lunch, but every single day a sandwich? That just gets super boring in my opinion. That’s why I’ve teamed up with OmieBox! Their mission and my mission, is to get kids to eat healthier, not just at home but at school too.
“Only 11% of lunches brought from home contain a vegetable, and only 25% of lunches met three out of five National School Lunch Program standards.” — Journal of the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
It’s not easy packing a different, healthy lunch every day for our kids. And let’s be real, school lunches are no bueno. Tomato paste on pizza is considered a healthy vegetable intake….uuuuum, I think not. You, as a parent or guardian have a say in what your kids eat! Yes, that’s right, you make the decisions.
And I get it, sometimes we have those days where we get lazy and are in a hurry and that’s ok, the point is the majority of the time you do and will make your kids lunch. What people forget is that lunch is a very important part of your child’s day, just like breakfast, just like dinner. Kids get 1/3 to 1/2 of their daily calories from lunch. And just like my friends say over at OmieBox: “They gotta fill up on the good stuff. Getting the right nutrition at lunch has so many positive benefits! Concentration, memory and problem solving function at their peak, so kids can be their best selves. Longer term, having the right nutrition improves immunity and resistance to colds/flu, so kids miss fewer days at school”. Uuuum Yea! I totally agree with that and couldn’t of said it better myself.
With OmieBox you’re no longer restricted to brown paper bags, hoping the food survives till lunch. These lunch boxes promote healthy eating. This is great way to get your kids into healthy eating habits. Omiebox’s are bright, colorful and vibrant making them even more exciting. They’re super lightweight and easy to carry. It’s a triple win for the whole family.
With that said here are some photos of what school lunches look like in the United States:
I know this type of lunch first hand because I grew up with these types of lunches. They do more harm than good for our children. With OmieBox you can send your kids to school with lunches that will excite them and nourish their ever growing bodies the right way. And as you can tell from my recipe posts, eating healthy, is in no way boring.
OmieBox has two temperature zones so you can pack a hot entree, fruits + veggies and have everything be at the perfect temperature come lunch. So no more soggy fruits and crackers. Phew.

In the video I don’t show the sandwich compartment but I took a photo of it so you can see it. So not only do you have the option of using the thermos, you can use this area for a sandwich, wrap or veggie roll up too! The possibilities are endless and your kids will love you for it!
Here’s what OmieLife is all about:
- OmieBox is an insulated bento box that stores hot and cold food in one box. It has 2 temperature zones so entrées keep warm while veggies and fruits stay cool!
- Kids get one-third of their daily calories from lunch so make those calories count! OmieBox helps you pack nutritious lunches so you don’t get stuck in a processed food rut.
- OmieBox is designed to be super easy for kids to use. It’s easy to open, requires no setup, and lets kids easily scoop food out. OmieBox gives kids control over lunch, so you don’t have to worry.
- Omiebox protects the love and hard work you put into every lunch. So kids get the fuel they need to grow, and more importantly, they feel how much they’re loved.
That sums it up! Your kids will no longer come home with having eaten very little from school. You can pack their favorites and know they will be properly energized throughout their busy day. If you have further questions please drop me a line below!
