Bags of fun...

I don't know about you, but in our house, snacks are a big deal! Honey has her own cupboard where she goes to grab a snack (she does have to ask first but she gets to choose whatever she wants from a carefully selected box) and when we're out and about, she knows where to buy her favourite snacks. 

One thing that does get on my nerves, is those little plastic clips you use for sealing half eaten packets, they're brilliant but I find I either forget them and end up with soggy, leftover crisps or lose them. That's where Nom Nom Kids can help, the makers of our favourite reusable pouches have come up with a new snack bag which seals snacks tightly to keep them fresh. We have used them for everything from carrots to crisps, as well as apple and satsuma slices and everything stayed just as fresh as when they were filled!

 

Honey instantly fell in love with the bags and enjoyed helping me choose what to put in them, she also took responsibility for packing them and choosing which ones she and Ace would have at snack time. With a little practise, Honey was able to open the bags by herself which is a huge bonus in my book, as I love anything which encourages independence! The size of the bag means that I can get away with splitting a packet of biscuits or carrot puffs between the two of them rather than taking two packets and the best bit is that Honey hasn't even noticed! This not only makes them fab for portion control, but also for budgeting as you can buy bigger packets of things and share them out, instead of buying ready prepared snack sized portions, which usually works out cheaper overall.



Honey's not the only fan, when she had a snack at a friend's house last week, her friend Rory totally abandoned his bowl and asked for his snacks to be put in one of the monster bag and came back for at least three refills! That's a 10/10 review right there and we left the pouch for him to use in future!














I can safely say that this is another triumph for Nom Nom Kids and the bags are a total toddler must have. Ours are currently in the dishwasher preparing for their next use, I wonder what we'll put in them next!

  2. These look absolutely brilliant! I thought that when I saw them the other day, my bag is full of crisp and biscuit crumbs so I could really do with these! Thanks for linking up with us. #bigpinklink
