Ode to the Little Snack Cup

We've been reading a lot of Dr. Seuss around here lately (being iced inside our house and all). Inspired by reading The Cat in the Hat over and over and over again, I decided to come up with an ode to the most wonderful of toddler contraptions--the snack cup. If there's one product out there that helps us have more successul and fun outings with a toddler, it's this (full of tasty treats, of course). It is especially true when he has to be in his car seat or stroller for long periods of time.

The arrow sharing a snack with his cousin at Christmas

You have a way about you, little snack cup

Making Cheerios more challenging to spill
Yet keeps them accessible still
To little toddler hands
Letting us explore various lands

Little snack cup, we give you a big thumbs up

Packed with raisins or many a cracker
You make life grand for our little snacker
Keeping him happier in the car
Or sitting in his stroller as we wander afar

The world, we want our son to gobble up

Instead of being strapped to a high chair
Eating on the go can be done with flair
We take you everywhere we go
Leaving a trail behind us of many a Cheerio

You make it all possible, little snack cup!

(Confession: Cheerios are a major food group in the arrow's diet these days. Please don't judge.)

If you've somehow missed out on the genius of the snack cup and need a recommendation, here's an Amazon affiliate link to our favorite brand: Munchkin Two Snack Catchers


  1. Haha, awesome! I agree, those buggers are mighty handy when you have kiddos. Very creative:)

  2. Great ode!!! We loved snack cups too at that age. And cheerios too so don't worry no judging here! Nothing better than a snack cup filled with cheerios on a long car trip.
