WFMW - Traveling Snack Bag

This is our "traveling lunch bag" that is always in the car except when it comes in to be refilled. It is stocked up with lots of goodies such as goldfish crackers, fruit snacks, juice boxes, cereal in baggies, lollipops and plastic cups - although the cups are not for drinking.

You see, my kids have a snacking addiction. Despite the fact that they get three square meals a day, which they eat and wholesome snacks throughout the day they are always looking for more. Especially after grocery shopping or if I have to go through the drive-thru convenience store. They always request that a bag of pretzels or a box of cereal be opened immediately. It was not long after I had a strained neck from doing the constant passing of food to the back seat in two directions while holding on to the steering wheel and looking straight and also finding what looked like a small family of "maggots" congregating around a stray Cheerio on the floor of my car (please do not judge) did I think to add cups to our snack bag. Now when a package gets opened they each get a cup eliminating most of the spillage and the strained necks!

Great idea. I always forget to pack snacks in the car and we both get hungry while we're out.

Awesome idea! And don't worry, you're not the only who has found strange science experiments growing on the car floor. It's lovely to meet you via SITS!
