Founded by Megan Mallen, Mini Hippo Imports prides itself 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 & style,' explains Megan. “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 takes the guesswork out of what and how much to pack. Its divided food tray accommodates 1⁄2 cup portions of the 5 main food groups. Yumbox’s decorative tray was designed to be an educational tool that assists parents in packing a balanced meal and that also helps to reinforce healthy eating habits in children. Yumbox seals all compartments with one silicone molded lid making it leak proof. No lost lids and no mess!
“Picky eaters don’t like food to touch and moms don’t like food to leak, so the construction of the lid and divided tray were key.” says Devitt who has a picky eater of her own. “Yumbox keeps food in its place, even wet foods like yogurt and applesauce. We knew moms would love Yumbox’s single lid as a better option to using multiple containers and lids that kids lose or can’t manage on their own” says Devitt.
Yumbox responds to a growing need for products that assist parents with portion control. With child obesity on the rise worldwide, parents are seeking products that simplify the road to a healthier lifestyle. Yumbox’s food tray promotes a balanced meal with builtin portion control. Each food well is illustrated to guide parents and kids to packing fruit, vegetables, protein, dairy, and grains. Opening Yumbox is like uncovering a treasure chest that quickly becomes an adventure in good nutrition. It’s design is kid friendly, bright, colorful and fun to use.
Maia Neumann, the cofounder of Yumbox, comments: “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. We are delighted to be working with Mini Hippo Imports, who 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.”
Yumbox was created by two moms, Daniela Devitt and Maia Neumann. Both have a passion for cooking and creating healthy foods for their families. Daniela is based in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and Maia (currently) lives in Nice, France.
