I have been recently introduced to the wonderful world of re-usable napkins, who knew a whole variety of them existed?
The napkins pictured above are PICKmeUp
napkins, each one colourfully designed with your child in mind. PICKmeUp napkins come in a variety of designs, and have beautiful and inspirational little messages printed on each one.
Like a lot of parents, I have always sent little messages in my son's lunch bag to let him know mommy is thinking of him while he is away at school. PICKmeUp has combined the personalization of a note with the functionality of a napkin for your child to enjoy and use! I received PICKmeUp set "A" for review with my son, and I absolutely LOVED them!! A set of 5 is $29.99 and each napkin measures 10x10--in my opinion the perfect size for tiny mouths!! I love that all the printed messages and patterns are unisex and equally sweet in nature- a perfect way for my kids to know they are loved.
Unlike a few other re-usable napkin sets, these are not double sided and they are fairly smaller in size (which I personally, love). From a design standpoint, these are chic and expensive looking and my reading-age boy LOVES the wording. A few 'bonuses' to these adorable napkins are the sewn on label that can be used to write your child's name so that they NEVER get misplaced! As well as the fact that they are 100%cotton ANNNNNDDD Made in Canada!! Whoo hoo!!

"use your trap, not your lap!"
So what is a 'Wrap Trap' anyway? Simply put, it is a stopper for your messy wraps! When I came across this product I thought it was simply genius. I mean, how many of us have struggled with filling wraps, pitas or flat bread?
The solution--Wrap traps. They are clips that are child resistant that prevent 'oozing and messy spills.' When tested on a 2 year old and 4 year old they instantly became a lunchtime favorite. Each Trap has a cute animal face, a hippo, a frog, a panda and a cat. This makes lunchtime (especially at school) a favorite for my kids. NOTHING FALLS OR SQUISHES OUT!! Best of all, you can use them on the run!!!
I now make my wraps with 2 Wrap Traps (guess thats why they are sold in 2) one on each end, then cut down the middle. This product was a pleasure to review. It was fun, easy to
figure out and GREAT for people of all ages! Did I mention its created by a mom and its CANADIAN!
PLUS! a portion of each Wrap Trap sale goes to The Ronald McDonald House.

I never knew it was possible to fall in love with stainless steel. Especially when it comes in the form of a container! But, i did. Initially, I thought that it would serve the same purpose as my hundreds of Tupperware....I was wrong!
After endless research and hearing all the latest on BPA and leaking chemicals I decided to give in and try something new. The Greentainer is stylish, functional and eco-friendly. Not to mention it was created by 2 Toronto mothers!!
I currently own the large lunch container (pictured above), which is great for storing a sandwich and has a top container for fruit/veggies. It is extremely hygenic and doesn't leak!! I accompany the large container with 2 tiny ones for my sons school lunch. The little ones are great for storing fruit, dips and snacks....I am in love with this product and I know you will fall in love too!!
Save the earth, and look great doing it ;)
