How was Omielife created?
Omielife the brand was created by Nancy after her little boy started preschool and he missed having warm lunches that he was used to having at home and was unable to open his lunch containers by himself. After numeorus times of uneaten lunches and a somewhat hungry cranky toddler Nancy began to create what is now the Omielife lunch box and the brand has expanded and grown and has become sought after all over the world.
We absolutely love getting inspiration from other parents, care givers and omiebox owners over on Tiktok and Youtube. It’s great to see what other people are packing in their lunch boxes, and to get ideas for what we can make for our children.
What do you pack in your child’s lunch box?
The Omiebox is perfect for both Children and Adults with a great sized removeable thermos, fantastic for adding a warm addition to your lunch but if you decide that day you do not want a warm addition you can remove the thermos insert and it is the perfect compartment size for a sandwich or salad. The thermos size is pleasantly larger then you might expect and you can get a substantial amount of food in there. The Blocked bright colours of the lunch boxes are perfect for children.
The Omiebox The Must Have Lunch Box.
Have you got your hands on our most loved lunch box? Meet the Omiebox, aka the most useful bento box around.
The thermos insert makes it perfect for those who love a warm meal at lunch time. With its super clever design, you can have a hot dinner in one compartment and in the other compartments keep cold foods such as fruit and vegetables that will stay cool.
It's a great way to get your kids eating healthily and make sure they don't go hungry when they go back to school after the holidays.
The Omiebox design
The thermos is a brilliant innovative design that allows you to have warm lunch for up to 3-4 hours. The thermos is perfect for school lunches because it keeps food warm enough to eat and enjoy.
The thermos is great for soups and sauces because they stay warmer than solid foods like chicken nuggets and pasta.
Omielife did some testing with soup - In our own testing, boiling soup (93c) will reach roughly 43-48c after 4 hours, which most kids consider warm but not hot (as a point of reference- Starbucks kids hot chocolate is served at 48c).
The handy compartments are leakproof (they can hold up to 1 teaspoon of liquid) so you can add yummy delicious fruits and more to these compartments to enjoy along side your main lunch. If you want to add more liquid such as yogurt and dips you can add to the thermos or use the dip pots (available seperately)
The omiebox is perfect as it is but you can further optimise it with dip pots, snack pots and more. Heres the lowdown of the fantastic accessories to match your box.
Dip Pots - These come in a pack of two perfectly coloured to compliment your lunch box. They are 100% leakproof when sealed so you can add your dips, yogurts and more to these.
Snack Pot - The perfect little side kick to your lunch box.
Utensils and Pods - The omiepod is the optimum way to carry around your utensils for your lunch. In a silicone pouch that keeps them nice and secure and you can loop the pod on to the lunch box, bags and more. Never again will you need to worry about utensils with these.
Omiechill - Can be used as an ice pouch for keeping your lunch cool or add your yogurt or fruit pouch inside this and keep it cool until lunch time. Pop the chill in the freezer for at least 4 hours before use to help keep it nice and cool.
Lunchbag - An 100% washable lunchbag to store your Omiebox and accessories on the go.

What if my OmieBox is leaking?
If your OmieBox is leaking, first re-install the lid seal or the O-ring gasket. 9 out of 10 times it’s because these two items are installed improperly. Follow the installation instructions and double check that the gasket is smooth and even. Kinks or waves can cause leaking.
After packing food, close the lid and latch it. Be sure to use the palms of your hands to push along the entire surface area of the lid. This helps to engage the seal.
Did you accidentally put it in the dishwasher? If you did, then this could explain why it’s leaking. The dishwasher’s high heat could cause warping, which is why your box is leaking.
