Keeps the mess down on the go! Put an 8 oz. sour cream lid over the top to keep snacks fresh and no spilling in diaper bag!
on July 27, 2009
These are very handy snack holders. Easy for tots to grab onto and hold. I attach a handle to a "No Throw" strap for when she's in the stroller.
I was disappointed that they don't all come with a stay fresh type of lid, so if you leave snacks in it for even a couple of hours, they do get stale very quickly.
Today, I came up with a solution! I noticed you can buy the lids to go over them to help keep the food fresh, OR... *Drum roll please* I happened to have an 8 oz. Daisy Sour Cream container lid lying around and VOILA - it fits perfectly snug over the rubbery top! It's basically air tight! I'm all about reusing/recycling so this was perfect!
I'm so excited that I'll be able to fill up the snack cup, put the reused 8 oz. sour cream lid on it (on top of the rubbery part), and not worry that it will spill all over the diaper bag (it's not spill proof by any means!), and also that it should help to keep the snacks fresher!
I was surprised at how flexible the rubbery top is - good because it won't hurt your baby's fingers, but bad because it doesn't rigidly stay in place (more spills). My 20 month old daughter is getting really good about not pouring out all of her snacks, so these are getting more use now than they were a few months ago when purchased.
Hold up fabulously in the dishwasher.
I don't think I will buy any more of them, but I would recommend them for someone to try.
I have purchased another set of 2. As my daughter gets older (27 months now), they are getting used a lot! Before the snack catchers, I used to just let my daughter have a few pieces of snack in her lap (in the stroller). I also occasionally let her eat snacks out of a ziploc bag, however, she will dump it out. Going to go back to the snack catchers while shopping and see if she stops dumping snacks out.
