Here is my latest competition/giveaway which should interest anyone with school-age or even Kindergarten-aged children in Singapore. I am giving away one Yubo Lunchbox, thanks to sponsor, My Miracle Baby.

In hot and humid Singapore it is always a challenge trying to keep the kids' lunches palatable when they are sitting in a warm school corridor, in an even warmer school bag. I hate putting the kids' lunches into plastic ziplock bags that they throw away after one usage. This is highly wasteful, expensive and just doesn't do the environment any good. The obvious solution is an insulated lunch box/bag which keeps the food fresh and unsquashed and that has food containers which can be reused again and again.

So...I am looking for something that will keep the food cool and in good shape, that is easy to wash, is made from a material that is safe to store food in, that is durable enough to be reused for years without breaking, and won't break the bank. It must also be attractive enough for the children to want to use.

Unfortunately, I have found the perfect lunch box hard to come by here in Singapore. You can buy the bento box style Japanese lunch boxes, but I find the compartments too small or the wrong shape for sandwiches. And very expensive.

Which is why you should be excited about the Yubo lunchbox. Selling for SG$55 at My Miracle Baby.com.sg, it's not a cheap solution, but it fits all the criteria. It is made from BPA-free plastic with modular inserts that snap together like lego. The custom-built icepack slots in under the food containers so it doesn't get in the child's way, and it is dishwasher-safe and easy to wipe clean. The lunchboxes are also made with food-safe, anti-microbial agent that inhibits the growth of bacteria.

The modular food containers mean no more wasteful plastic bags and the food also has a longer life. The designs are also very cool, with something to appeal to any child. The rubber handle makes it easy for children to carry and they will no doubt want to show off their fun lunch box to their friends.

Hi!
I've been searching for a good lunchbox for my son who just started going to childcare.. Agree that most of the lunch boxes out there are dubious - not sure whether bpa-free and are often non-insulated.

So in answer to the question "Which feature or features of the Yubo Lunchbox make it safe for storing food?"
it's great that the Yubo Lunchbox is made of bpa-free plastic, and has a food-safe, anti-microbial agent that inhibits the growth of bacteria.

Thanks for introducing it to us, will subscribe to your blog too :)

p/s my email is curiong @ yahoo.com

The feature that makes it safe for carrying food is it's "food-safe, anti-microbial agent that inhibits the growth of bacteria".
