Packing and serving snacks is about to get way easier with these durable, affordable, and easy-to-use snack containers for kids and adults, With options including stainless, stacking, divided, reusable bags and more, plus tips for the best less messy snacks to pack.
I’m a big fan of having the right product for the job and having a stash of snack-size containers can make it easier to pack food to take on the go—whether for daycare, preschool, a road trip, or just a trip to the park.
These containers have been vetted by me in my real life and endorsed by my Instagram community. The ones I’ve included here were chosen for:
小费：It’s important to me to recommend products that last and that we can use even as our kids grow, so the majority of these picks are great for babies and toddlers, yes, but also big kids and adults.
Favorite Reusable Bags
There have been a lot of new reusable bags on the market in the past few years and I have two favorites.
Stainless Steel Snack Containers
Stainless containers have the benefit of being both incredibly durable and really easy to clean. They last forever—through multiple kids and as they grow—and are great for adult snacking needs too.
Stacking Snack Containers
This type of container allows you to pack a lot of snacks while keeping them contained in your bag—which is a giant win.
This might be one of the most used storage products I’ve had in my kitchen over the past 5 years. We use these containers for everything—and the two sizes in this set (which are 4 and 2 ounces) are perfectly toddler sized. (And great for big kids too.)
This three pack holds together easily and includes cups that hold ⅓ cup, and 1 cups. They also come in a few really fun designs. Kids love these!
This category includes containers with lids that help prevent messes, but allow little hands to get inside. I view these as more temporary purchases—since you won’t need them forever—but they can be helpful for the toddler years.
This toddler snack cup has a fabric lid that the kids can easily slide their hands into to get to their snack. Families LOVE this product! There’s also an airtight lid that can be switched in, and the product is made in California from all US sourced materials. (BPA, Phthalate, and PVC free. FDA food-grade compliant materials.)
In our house, we share snack containers, but I have a few favorites for myself and my husband.
