Reusable Food Wraps and Snack Bags

Products Nannies Love

I must admit I love using Ziplocs to carry my nanny kid’s snacks and lunches and to store leftovers in the fridge. But, plastic is full of chemicals that may leach into food and they aren’t environmentally friendly. Wrapping food in aluminum foil is also convenient but can also contaminate food and lead to the absorption of too much aluminum into the body. So a better option to plastic and aluminum foil to keep foods fresh are non-toxic reusable food wraps.

Here is a list of some of my favorite reusable, environmentally friendly, and non-toxic food wraps to use instead of aluminum foil and plastic.

Bee’s Wrap

Bee’s Wrap is made of organic cotton muslin, beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin. This combination of ingredients creates a malleable food wrap that can be used again and again. Simply mold the Bee’s Wrap to the top of your dish by using the warmth and pressure of your hands to create a seal. When the Bee’s Wrap cools (within seconds) it holds its seal. Use the same method to wrap cheese, vegetables, bread, and baked goods. It is not recommended for meat. Just wash your Bee’s Wrap in cool water with a mild dish soap. Do not heat. Air dry, fold and store in a drawer or in a basket on the counter. The beeswax and jojoba oil have antibacterial qualities that help to keep your food fresh and allow you to use the Bee’s Wrap again and again.

Itzy Ritzy

Itzy Ritzy Snack Happen are great for storing and carrying snacks. Each bag comes in a cute pattern and has a 100% cotton exterior. The lining is waterproof, FDA approved and BPA, lead and PVC-free.

Ava and Kings Snack Bags
