There are a lot of food jars on the market today of various sizes and styles. What stands out in the Skip Hop food jar is the style and the attached spoon. It is really convenient to carry hot or cold items. The size is also really good, not too big or too small and fits nicely in a lunch bag. You can use it on your daily or overnight trips. It can also be used for lunches in Preschool. The attached spoon/fork is really handy as the child can simply eat from the jar without needing a plate. If you have more than one child, you can buy their favorite animals designs so that you never confuse whose jar you are using. It may come as a surprise to you but kids really love animals and will really appreciate having them on their food jars. It might even encourage them to eat a little extra.

Important note: make sure to remove and clean the rubber around the lid to avoid bacteria built up.

You can get the entire set coordinated from back pack to utensils. You can read our full review of Skip Hop Zoo Toddler backpacks here.
