The snack catcher is right up there as one of my favorite toddler products ever. Once Andrew started eating solid foods, Cheerios became a staple around our house. I received pair of snack catchers at my baby shower and I’m so glad I did — they’re extremely handy. As any mom with a toddler knows, once they start eating food themselves they don’t really want you to feed it to them anymore. They want to do it themselves, and these snack catchers enable your newly independent babe to snack on his or her own. And without a huge mess, unlike regular containers that tend to throw cereal EVERYWHERE when you open them up. I should know, I’ve eaten like, eight thousand Cheerios to date, just to clean them up.
Here’s what the snack catcher looks like:
This product is awesome because it allows your toddler to hold it themselves with the handle, grab snacks from the catcher, and eat happily, without making a mess. Your car! Your kitchen! Your high chair! The church pew! Finally, a mess-free zone. The snack catcher holds 9 oz. of dry snacks, it has a protective bottom so it won’t scratch tabletops or surfaces underneath, and there’s a flip top attached which keeps your snacks fresh. You can fill it with dry cereal, animal crackers, baby cookies, or other grab-and-go foods. We bring ours everywhere in the diaper bag, whether it’s during Church when I’m sneaking a few Cheerios in his little hand, or at the park when he gets hungry, or even in the car and he can hold it in his car seat by himself. Ah, I just love this thing!
