Now Baby’s Snacks Will Stay IN The Bowl and OFF The Floor (Sorry, Doggy!)

We love little accessories that present an easy remedy to a niggling problem – and today’s post is about one of our favourites!

Like babies everywhere, our little ones would frequently spill their snacks on the floor! Fortunately, we didn’t worry too much about the sanitary implications of this (we figure a little dirt helps build the immune system!) – but the main problem was that our dog often got to the fallen food before we did, so there was no chance of returning it!

The back of the car was another problem, with its constant carpet of Cheerios supplied by whoever was strapped into the baby seat!

So we were delighted to discover Munchkin’s Snack Catchers
– a neat solution to the problem that you’ll wish you’d thought of yourself!

The Snack Catcher…

  • Holds a generous 9 oz of dried snacks
  • Features soft flaps that hold in the food, but are gentle on baby’s little hands and let him easily retrieve his snack
  • Has a protective bottom, so it won’t scratch your table top
  • Has a place to write your child’s name at the bottom, so it won’t go missing at daycare!
  • Comes in a pack of 2 for the low price of $7.63, which you’ll recoup in no time when you consider how much you’ll be saving in lost snacks!

Try as he might, your little one will NOT be able to dump his entire snack on the carpet… and Fido will just have to wait until his doggy dinnertime!

We guarantee that the Snack Catcher is one item you’ll be GLAD you bought for your baby!

    An awesome idea – however, any chance you know where I can purchase from that will send to Australia?

    It’s ok, just found that my local BIG W store stocks them. For only $5! Bargain! My son is constantly dropping his snack foods on the floor and I have a daughter coming up close behind him – so will grab a few!

    My 7mth old baby is only interested in finger food however i am finding it very difficult to find foods i can give him. Cooked veges only end up in a mushy mess on his highchair as they squish in his fingers before he can get them to his mouth. he loves cucumber but I’m very scared of him choking on it especially the skin. He can manage banana with skin on and avocado with skin on but I still worry about choking. The skin helps give something solid for him to hang onto. How do i give him food that he can hang onto and get into his mouth. Please help as i am extremely frustrated. I know he needs extra iron but he will not eat cereal or purees. I spent a very stressful few hours cooking him a lamb mince recipe only to have him reject it. I am not a cook and find it very challenging to make food for him and to then have him not want it makes me want to scream, not to mention the colossal waste of food. I feel like giving up. Please help!

    In general, babies usually just spit out things they can’t manage (like fruit and veggie skins), but offering these items with the skins still on can be nerve-wracking nevertheless! Have you thought about trying a mesh feeder? http://www.homemade-bab-food-recipes.com/mesh-feeder-for-baby-finger-foods.html
    Another option is to cook finger foods that are still easy to eat, but also easy to hold on to. We have lots of suggestions here: blog.homemade-baby-food-recipes.com/tag/finger-foods/You can also try allowing your baby to eat from YOUR plate – it certainly cuts down on waste and may encourage him to try different foods.It’s important to remember that your little one is still getting much of his nutrition from his milk at this stage, so try not to worry and let him ‘practice’ for a while – he’ll soon get the  hang of feeding  himself 🙂
