OmieBox is the first leakproof bento lunch box for kids that stores hot and cold food together, so parents can pack healthier school lunches. Kids get up to two-thirds of their daily calories at school, so make those calories count with healthy meals packed into one easy to use bento lunch box. OmieBox is different because it has a built-in thermos food jar that keeps lunch warm for 4 hours. The bento compartments are double walled, air insulated and leakproof, so it keeps fruits and vegetables cool and fresh. You won’t need a separate lunch box because OmieBox comes with a handle, so it is the only container you need to store and transport food to school. OmieBox has a clean, modern design, and it’s so easy to use it’ll change the way you think about school lunches. You put a lot of love and hard work into your kids lunch, making sure they get the nutrients they need to grow. OmieBox’s thermos bento lunch box design protects the lunches you create so every time your kids open it, what they see is your love.

Healthy School Lunches
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
When my son started preschool, I was on a mission to pack healthy and delicious lunches for him. But no matter what I packed, he just didn’t eat his lunch. Day after day, he hardly ate anything, and I was worried sick that he wasn’t getting the nutrients he needed. What I realized was that making a great lunch is only half the equation. Lunches have to taste good and look good for kids to want to eat it.
What makes your product special?
We've re-imagined the lunchbox to make lunchtime healthier and easier for kids and parents. Parents pack about 180 lunches a year per child - that's a lot of lunches! It's easy to fall into a lunch rut and that's where OmieBox comes in - the built-in insulated bowl and the versatile design makes it easy to send a wide variety of yummy, nutritious lunches. What kids eat at lunch matters for their health and well-being, and OmieBox wants to simplify the process as much as possible for parents.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Making a meaningful difference in people's lives. Theres nothing more rewarding than receiving emails from happy parents telling us that their kids are eating more & eating healthier at school.

For those of you who struggle to fit juice boxes or utencils into the OmieBox, I order Honest Juice BOXES (not soft packs) from Amazon in bulk. They fit perfectly, and have way less sugar and sodium than traditional drink boxes. And then on top of the drink as pictured, I place Fenigo petit happy face cutlery (Fenigo.com), they fit great! Although, it would be pretty handy to have a utencil pocket on the side of the box or the top or something.
When the box leaves the house, all is well. For the comments about the thread on the thermos, the collar which goes between the lid and the thermos base has one rounded edge and 3 angled which needs to be placed just right like a puzzle piece to close correctly. I was confused at first and then realized that even though it fit in the box, it was not positioned correctly for the lid to twist.
We don't tighten the thermos lid all the way, just enough to seal it closed but not so tight that my daughter has to get help to open it. I showed her how to work it before the first use so she wouldn't struggle. She has mentioned that her soup leaked, but I really think the issue is with her ability to close the lid tight enough (or at all to save time for recess), and less due to the box being defective. Like I said, everything is fine when she takes off to school. There are some great lunch totes that allow bento boxes to lay flat such as the 3 Sprouts Lunch bag or they have similar rectangular totes at Ikea. This would also allow for the utensils and drinks to be in the lunch tote leaving more room for food in the bento containers.
Besides the thermos, the rest of the box is not meant for applesauce or yogurt etc. For a seal-proof Bento, try the yumbox, or Bentgo, although they are not temperature controlled for hot food.
In summary, we are very pleased with our purchase. I hand-wash all the items to keep them operational. To make sure the thermos stays extra warm, I let hot water sit in the metal base while i prep the rest of the lunch and then dump the water and place the hot food into an already hot container and close it up! Stays nice and hot for lunchtime at school. It has even still been warm when I pickup at 3:00 in the afternoon.
I love Bento for the convenience that my kid has more time to enjoy her food without having to wait on the hot lunch line or fiddle with frustrating bags of crackers or carrots etc. Thanks for a wonderful innovative lunch box, OmieLife!
So I tried with just chicken noodle soup. Mostly broth, should be fine. WRONG. The thermos leaked all over the omiebox when carried by the handle like it is designed to do.
I might add that omielife sent me a replacement thermos after my first one did not keep heat and the exact same thing happened with both thermoses.
Save your money. It is a really good idea, but it just does not work as promised.
UPDATE 9/6/16- So I received a complimentary replacement omiebox after posting a poor review. I wanted to update my original review now. The new omiebox does in fact work better than the previous omiebox. For what it is worth, I ordered a green omiebox initially, and was told that they had updated the pink and yellow colors with better insulation, so I received a new yellow version. I performed the same boiling water test on the new box as I did the old. After placing boiling water into the thermos and leaving it for 4 hours the water read 125 degrees F. When I did the test with pasta, I actually forgot to take the temperature before serving it, but my 5 year old ate it without any complaints, unlike the previous omiebox where she refused because the food was too cold. I packed pasta today and sent her to school and she reported that the food was warm and that she would definitely want to take the omiebox again.
At this point I would give the omiebox 3 stars. I would like it if they could get the thermos to keep the food a little warmer but I understand that they have to fight thermodynamics also and that this will be quite difficult while keeping all the positive aspects like the easy open lid. If you don't have to have piping hot food or super cold food, this will probably work just fine for you.
