After several requests from members of the Eats Amazing Lunch Packing Community (if you haven't already, come join us, it's a lovely friendly group!) for a Yumbox template for lunch planning, I've created a whole set of free templates that will hopefully be of use to those of you that like to plan! I've created templates for both the Yumbox Classic and the Yumbox Panino bento boxes, with two styles of weekly planner for each box and a single template for each one too - perfect for planning special lunches!
Now that I've made these templates, I'm wondering why I didn't do it years ago! If you like a bit of advance lunch planning, I'd recommend printing out copies and laminating them if possible - you can then use them with wipe-clean marker pens again and again for school lunch planning all the year through! I've been using the weekly planner to help me decide what to pack for the week ahead (it really comes in handy when I'm writing my shopping list!) and I'll use the single templates when I want to plan a more elaborate food arty lunch.
To download a printable copy of each Yumbox lunch planner, click on each template image to download the PDF file.
I hope to continue this series by creating more lunch planner templates for different lunch boxes too, so do comment below with your requests if there's a particular lunch box you'd like a template for.
And if you haven't yet jumped on the Yumbox bandwagon and are thinking of buying one, do pop over to the Eats Amazing Shop to see what colours we have in stock at the moment, we love our Yumboxes!
Happy planning and lunch packing!
