Reusable snack containers for kids

I getting tired of buying individual chip and cookie packages. I want to just buy bags of chips and packages of cookies and grab what is needed for lunchboxes and snacks. Besides plastic baggies, what do you use that is a bit more environmentally friendly?

Reusable snack containers for kids

I had to look up to see what they are called. I always used the rubbermaid take alongs with twist and seal lids. Easy to open/close and washable. I used them for fruit or cookies or yogurt. Chips ...I always bought the individual bags, it was easier all around, but they make these in different sizes so a little larger one would work for chips.

I use these Simple Modern snack bag

I also buy individual bags of chips because I imagine the snack bags would get too messy, but these do say they're machine washable. I have more than enough room for an applesauce pouch and bag of chips/goldfish in the medium size.

I buy different sized small containers from dollar tree, usually. I don't like to spend too much because they always go missing. Sometimes I use the reusable zip lock bags, but they are a pain to clean.

For me, I take snacks to work in those silicone snack bags (one brand is called stasher). Target, Amazon and today I saw them on clearance at TJ Maxx (3 pack of different sizes).

I use the baby bowls from when they were babies and I made cereal in them when they were learning to eat. It's a great size for fruit or chips! I also have a couple of smaller Tupperware containers for snacks.

I bought these silicone reusable sandwich bags at 5 below. A 3-pack was 3 bucks. I also have little plastic containers I got from amazon that I put stuff like strawberries, blueberries etc in so they don’t get crushed
