Tesco Value Travel Snack Pots
Advantages: Affordable, practical, look good
Disadvantages: None at all
The Tesco Value Travel Snack Pots are actually part of Tesco's own brand 'my baby' range which offers affordable alternatives to branded baby wares. The Tesco Value Travel Snack Pots come in a pack of 5 stackable pots with matching lids, and the current price is £2.20 which is excellent value for money.
Each pot is in a different pastel colour which is frosted and has a complimentary snap on lid. The pots and lids fit each other, obviously, so you can mix and match the pots for a funkier look if you wish. Each pot has a non frosted design pressed into the plastic, for example, a little cat, or some stars. This is a sweet addition and very charming to my daughter who plays with the pot when eating her little snack in the car or on a walk in the buggy.
Each pot holds about 25g, that is, a standard food size portion for a weaning child. As your child gets older, you can move on from 'mush' to small pots of raisins, grapes, cubes of cheese, blueberries and so on. They can be frozen with batch cooking easily, stored in the fridge, and washed in the dishwasher. I have never had any discolouration from washing the Tesco Value Travel Snack Pots in a dishwasher, probably due to the fact they are coloured, and made from a very strong plastic. Some cheaper pots are made from a softer, more malliable and absorbent plastic which I have found discolours from tomato based foods easily, not so with the Tesco Value Travel Snack Pots.
The Tesco Value Travel Snack Pots can also be microwaved too, which means you can heat food up and feed from it (always check the temperature of the food as well as the pot before taking to your baby, however, as sometimes the pot can feel hotter than the actual centre of the food). The size and shape of the pot means it's easy for little ones to dig a spoon in and feed themselves, when they are able to.
I like the Tesco Value Travel Snack Pots very much, because you can pretty much use them from weaning right through to toddlerhood, using them for 'mush' then on to fork mashed food and then to snacks. They fit well in small bags and lunchboxes and unlike a thin food bag are resealable so there's less food waste.
Overall, I do recommend the Tesco Value Travel Snack Pots and not just for travel. They make baby feeding in and around the home much easier and their price means it won't break the bank to buy a few sets if needed. I've had mine about 18 months now and some are still in use for snacks and one is in use as a travel water pot for magic painting! It's always useful to have these little pots when you have a baby or toddler, and they'll always have a use. As she gets older I'll still use them for fruit and when they become too small they'll be used to hold craft supplies. So I'll certainly have my £2.20's worth out of them!
I really like the my baby range at Tesco and these snack pots are an excellent example of not needing to spend more for sweet little baby pots at an affordable price with many practical uses.
