It Encourages Picky Eaters to Try More Foods
The clear case makes this container so visually stimulating. My kids being rainbow-obsessed, I first filled the five slots with fruits in a ROYGBIV pattern to great success. Surprisingly, however, when I swapped in broccoli florets for the previously crowd-pleasing green kiwi slices, my veggie-averse toddler went for it! The same when I subbed in carrots in place of cantaloupe. She may have only eaten a bite or two, but she benefits from this food exposure that I'd been unable to do with portable snacks before.
The fact that you can see all snack options at a single glance has also helped them make positive food choices. When I'm on my A game, I'll try to include a fruit, a vegetable, some nuts, a cracker or other starch, and a sweet treat — like a cookie or a few pieces of chocolate. I find that the more of a variety they are exposed to, the less obsessed they are with only eating the jackpot item, whether that's candy or pretzel sticks.
