I have a six year old son, and he loves to take snacks on the go. I guess since he's a growing boy, but he thinks he needs a snack every hour! I usually just use sandwich bags for his snacks, but they always tend to open up and make a mess all over the place. Yeah, it's a lot of fun to open his backpack after school and find EVERYTHING coated in crushed goldfish crackers! I was thrilled to try out these resusable snack bag containers by Practico Kitchen.
The SnackCubby containers are made of BPA-free and FDA-approved food grade silicone which is also freezer and dishwasher safe. They measure 6.9 in x 1.7 in and easily fit into a lunchbox or side pocket of a backpack. Each container holds 8.5oz, or the same as 1/4 of a standard sandwich bag, which makes it perfect for portion control. The snack bags are see-thru, so you can easily tell what's in them and how full they are. They have an attached cap and come with an accessory cap as well that is perfect for putting straws or popsicle sticks in.
The SnackCubby containers are absolutely perfect for putting a variety of different snacks in! You can also make popsicles or even cylindrical ice cubes that are perfect for putting in water bottles. These are absolutely perfect for making flavored or fruit-infused ice in! Pretzels, goldfish, granola, cereal and a variety of other snacks fit in these perfectly. I packed my son some cheese nips in these and sent it off to school with him. They successfully made it throughout the day without busting open and making a mess! I was so happy! I love these little versatile containers, they're so eco-friendly and help save money on buying sandwich bags all the time! To clean up, just throw them in the dishwasher or rinse out just like any other dish.
