Ziploc Snack Containers Review and Giveaway!

Hey Neighbors,

Sorry for not getting out At the Fence recently. We have been so busy! I have got to share with you about the Ziploc containers I received. To start with I have the Ziploc Snack bags, 50 count. They are 6 1/2 in by 3 1/4 in. They are the perfect size for 100 calorie snacks. I personally love them because we travel a lot in a shuttle bus, and these are the perfect size to pack little snacks in, that you can pass out to the children throughout the day. You know, snacks like nuts, grapes, cheese chunks, etc. Of course you can also put in the type of snacks my children like to find occasionally; M and M's, chips, etc.




I also received their Fresh Portions on the Go Divided Rectangle. The package contains 2 containers with 2 lids. The containers are divided into 3 sections. 1 that is slightly larger than 1/2 of the container, and the left over is divided into one medium size and 1 small size sections. Now, I honestly have to say I could pack an entire lunch for my daughters or myself in one container. Definitely would not work for my teenage sons or husband. They would need larger containers. These are the perfect size to do a salad and then some fruit or light snack in the other 2 sections.

Although it is a one piece lid, each compartment seals individually for freshness. Ziploc includes ideas for 100 calorie snacks on the package. They list more on their website. These containers would be great for someone who has recently started a diet or just wishes to cut down on calories. They are freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe. You can defrost and heat in the microwave, just remember to vent.



Ziploc Tips:

"From exercising, to eating less fast food, to discovering more portion-controlled options— a healthier lifestyle is at the top of the New Year’s Resolution’s checklist for most! To help you and your readers bring in 2011 on a healthier note, Ziploc has partnered with Food Network contributor, cookbook author and nutritionist Robin Miller to provide moms like you with the time and money-saving solutions you’ll need to create healthy and enjoyable meals and snacks for the whole family.

I thought you might be interested in this fun tip from Miller on how you can plan healthy, portion-controlled snacks and make snack time fun for the family:

Divide and Conquer - Get creative and have fun by allowing the children to divide nuts, fruit, cereal and crackers into different sections before placing them into Ziploc Brand Snack Bags. Also, keep a bounty of healthy snacks inside the home, office and car – having them on hand will help you avoid last-minute temptations at vending machines and convenience stores."

You can also follow Ziploc on Facebook for some other great ideas. Plus check out their Ziploc Tip page!

The winner of this giveaway will receive the same products I received from Ziploc.
