School lunches served by My Lunch Buddy in Cape Town

One of the things we love about our business, is hearing what the OmniBlend is going to be used for. While most of our blenders find their way into coffee shops and restaurants for blending smoothies, milkshakes and cocktails, others are joining completely new business ventures.

my-lunchbuddyMy Lunchbuddy is such a new business concept that was launched in Cape Town last month, with a unique offer: delivering healthy lunch packs to schools to take the stress away for busy parents who want to feed their kids nutritious meals. My Lunchbuddy packs freshly prepared school lunches and snacks, and delivers them at the school. And it doesn’t stop there: parents who sign up for a meal plan for their child(ren), make sure that another child doesn’t have to attend school on an empty tummy either. For every child My Lunchbuddy donates one healthy meal to a food-insecure child in the area through partner organisation The Lunchbox Fund.

For just R70 a day, parents have a stress-free morning without meal prepping of school lunches, while their kids receive healthy meals and snacks, and another child is supported too. The box is packed with a nutritious mid-morning snack, mixed fresh fruit, and a balanced main lunch, keeping your child fuelled for learning & play time. Parents can choose from an omnivore or vegetarian menu, and add a healthy smoothie for a vitamin boost. We were truly impressed with this concept!


The feedback from parents, kids and teachers at the selected schools in Cape Town has been overwhelmingly positive, and if you think your (child’s) school should be added too, get in touch to use their launch offer (contact My Lunchbuddy for details)!

My Lunchbuddy is committed to using local ingredients sourced from sustainable suppliers, and guarantees only natural, unprocessed ingredients without refined sugar. Meals are prepared fresh in the early morning, and you can select from a balanced and nutritionist-approved menu that changes every week. Find out more on their page, and check whether your kids’ school is already listed.

My Lunchbuddy is using the OmniBlend I, and opted for the combo package with a 2ltr jug and wide 1.5ltr jug for food prepping and blending nutritious smoothies.
