Navigating snacktime chaos with little ones? Been there. My pint-sized snack enthusiasts can turn any car ride into a total crumb-fest. That was until I invested in toddler-friendly snack containers.

No more spills, no more mess. These snack saviours keep everything in check, from juicy fruit slices to crunchy crackers. Designed with tiny hands in mind, they’re a game-changer for on-the-go munching.

So, seatbelts on, snack spoons at the ready, it’s time to dive into the world of mess-free snacking.

Tips for buying kid-friendly snack containers

  • Is it leakproof to prevent messes?
  • Does it have a sealed lid to keep food fresh?
  • Can it go in the freezer or microwave?
  • Is it airtight to maintain the snack’s crispiness?
  • Does it come with a convenient carry strap?
  • Is it big enough to hold the snacks (looking at you carrot sticks!)
  • Will the snacks fall out?
  • Can it go in the dishwasher?
  • Will it fit into the lunchbox or backpack?

MGV tip


If you’re not sure whether a snack box is leak-proof, just pop it into a zip-lock sandwich bag. That way you can tell if the bag comes back with remnants of what was in the container you’ll know it’s either leaking or it’s too hard for your child to close the lid.
