Our house got a bit crazier in the last two months.
Our toddler is about to turn 3 and is as busy and active as ever, and our second son arrived a month early and caught us
a bit a lot by surprise. That’s why at this point, I’m interested in anything that helps make things a bit easier.
W (our toddler) loves to bring snacks on the road. Since its summer, we’ve been doing a lot of outdoor activities – meaning we’ve got to pack what feels like the entire refrigerator (and pantry) every time we hit the road. We’ve also been fortunate to have lots of family come visit to meet our new little guy, which also means sightseeing and picnics.
Any parent of a toddler knows just how picky they can be and how any food item touching a non-associated food item can be the equivalent of an epic thunderstorm.
That’s why I’ve fallen in love with these Nude Food Movers containers by Smash. Haven’t heard of them? Yeah, me either until our shipment arrived. It’s a super popular brand in Australia that’s about to explode here in the states.
The products are absolutely fantastic! I don’t say that lightly. The convenience and design are perfect for parents and kids on-the-go.
Here’s why I love them:
- Son thinks they’re “cool”
- Easy to prep and clean
- BPA free
- Sandwiches, snacks and fruit all fit – made to store just about anything
- Compact and super easy to carry with you
- Dishwasher safe (though hand washing may extend their life)
One thing I’ve found is some of the items come with utensils built into them. It’s usually pretty great because they’re designed to snap right into the top of the cup or food box. However, amid washing, toddlers looking for things to play with and repeated trips in and out of the car those can get lost in transition. The design is nice but small items can be tricky to keep track of.
As Nude Food Movers makes its arrival in the U.S., the company is being picked up by several major retailers like Kroger, Fred Meyer, HEB, Walgreens, Amazon and several more. Plus, as of July you can order directly from them.
I like things that work as they should, it’s really that simple. Every one of my NFM containers live up to that standard without a doubt. We’ve been using them for several months, with multiple cycles through the dishwasher and they’re as good today as the day they arrived. My mother-in-law also raved about them, so that’s a seal of approval if nothing else.
Switching to a new brand – especially one that you may not have heard of – can be difficult but we have been nothing but impressed with the NFM products. If you see them in the store, do yourself a favor and pick up a container to start with. I’m confident you’ll be back to pick up more…and more.
