When I asked my wife what I should write about for “7 Days of Must-Haves,” she immediately said “the Snack Trap.” And I have to admit, she was absolutely right. If you’ve got a toddler who likes to take a snack with them (which pretty much limits it to every toddler in the world), then a Snack Trap is something that you really need to have.
Often the most simple things are the most ingenious, and the Snack Trap is no exception. It’s a cup for small bite-sized snacks (like Goldfish crackers, Cheerios, grapes or whatever) with a rubber lid. The genius thing about the lid is, it lets small hands get to the food, but keeps the food inside for the inevitable moment when your toddler tips it over. The picture shows the lid, so you can get an idea of how it works.
They’re found in lots of baby supply stores, or you can buy them in a three-pack for $13.95 from Amazon.com. In my opinion, you can never have too many.
