I know this blog covers picky eaters but my kids are actually pretty decent eaters. So decent that they need to eat a small meal every 2-3 hours or they get in temper tantrum mode. Yup, my kids have been blessed with a hearty appetite and, more importantly, their father’s metabolism. However, this requires me to take drinks and snacks practically everywhere we go. I take a sippy cup and a ziplock with Cheerios with me, just in case, even if it’s for a short walk down the block. It’s a hassle, I know, but luckily a mom by the name of Tiara Henderson invented the Cubbie Cup: a set of 2 attached cups – one for drinking and the other for snacks. (Read More After the jump).
The Cubbie Cup is lightweight and holds 1 cup of snacks in the snack cup and 8oz. liquids in the drink cup. It is BPA and PVC free and is dishwasher safe. Intended for toddlers ages 12 months and up, it has two handles on either side.
As you can see in the picture, it’s truly spill resistant:
Both my 5 and 3 year olds had no problem drinking and taking Cheerios out of the Cubbie Cup. And I was one happy mom who, for once, didn’t need to carry a truckload of items.
You can purchase the Cubbie Cup here. Price is $9.99

I was not paid for this post. I did receive a Cubbie Cup for review purposes.

She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature as well as a Law Degree, but writing about nutrition and helping families eat better is her true passion. She grew up in both California and Israel, which explains her love for California cuisine (fresh, local ingredients), as well as Mediterranean food (flavorful, heart-healthy ingredients). Maytal is a mom to two kids (ages 5 & 3) and works hard to ensure they eat healthy, unprocessed food, while trying to make it as delicious as possible. Married to a vegetarian and being a pescetarian herself, this can be quite a challenge. On an ordinary night at her dinner table, you can hear things like “More cauliflower, please!”, “How come I didn’t get a lot of tomato?” and “Fish oil! Yaaaay!”.

My 15 month old is always on the go and always snacking this would be perfect for him!

This is genius!! Oh how it would make my life SO much easier! My daughter is the same way. It doesn’t matter if we’re gone 5 minutes or 5 hours, she HAS to have a snack and drink. 🙂
