About Lunchbox World
So who is behind Lunchbox World?
Hi I’m Caroline, the “Lunchbox Lady” behind Lunchbox World!
With a background in consumer marketing and a love and passion for food, the Lunchbox World website started out as an idea in 2008, actually more a “gap in the market” idea that then launched in 2009. With young 3 kids, and no option of school lunch provided at school, I was duty bound to provide packed lunches for the brood. I just had to get stuck in, create daily lunch boxes, sometimes FIVE of them, (including the one for me and hubbie) that were exciting for all ages and tasty enough to make them actually eat! I was on a search for a washable lunch bag and in my search, found there were not many people talking “lunch box” (or so I thought at the time! Look across at the USA if you want to be inundated by the scope of lunch boxes and truly art creations!)
I had that eureka moment. “How about Lunchbox World?” How about creating a website, a one stop shop that is all about lunch boxes and has everything to do with lunch boxes, from the food you eat, to tips, hints, recipe ideas, to the kit you buy to carry your lunch in – all on the same website. And so Lunchbox World was born in Spring 2009!
I operated an e-commerce shop for 6 years (2009-2015) but decided to discontinue it, in order to concentrate and focus on my true passion – sharing great food art ideas, lunch box recipe ideas and creative inspiration for all ages. I have recipes for school aged kids, for students, for teens and inbetweens, and for adults taking lunch to work, so we cover many lunch box ideas for all ages.
So what is next for Lunchbox World?
The Lunchbox World site is evolving to stay true to its original dream – to be the one stop e-magazine style website, all about lunches, from the food you eat to the kit you use.
Watch out for the Lunchbox World seal of approval on products that are perfect for the lunch box and food on the go!
We’ve also set ourselves the target of posting 365 lunchbox ideas, so do check that out!
Lunchbox World is packed with lunch box ideas, a recipe section, reviews, hints and tips, fun lunch box ideas for kids, working lunch ideas for adults – sprinkled throughout with lots of cooking, baking and foodie fun not forgetting the food art. We also cover basic nutrition, the importance of hydration, healthy eating and then share all the fun bits: days out, eating out, family fun and the not-so-fun bits – parenting tip for parenting teens and more…
New in Autumn 2016 came a quick, easy student recipe series, as my kids get older and older. And yes, before you ask, I am now paranoid that our oldest, Tuna isn’t eating properly, now she’s at Uni … but the beauty of the Lunchbox Word website is that any of the lunch ideas can be eaten by anyone, as they are quick and easy to prepare.
I hope you love what you read, that you’ll follow us and keep coming back for more. Feel free to encourage other lunch-packers to come and connect and share the lunch box love!

Who else is behind Lunchbox World?
Well, Lunchbox World wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for the help, love and support from my family. Back in the day when we were shipping lunch box orders, the kids would help me pick, pack and ship the orders in the summer holidays, so it has very much involved all the family!
