FunBites Review and Upcoming Giveaway

I had a lot of fun with my FunBites mold.  I got the chance to review the green square.  As you know I think are food choices make a big difference in our energy, moods, and concentration.   That is why I like to send the kids off right to be prepared for school and all that comes up.  Packing their lunches are a big priory as well.  I usually spend about 40 minutes in the morning making breakfast and packing lunches for 6.  Yes, that includes Mom and Dad in having a healthy breakfast and lunch.

Every parent that packs a lunch for yourself and your kids knows that the variety sometimes gets stagnant.  Presentation can play a huge role in make the same foods exciting again.  I was excited to review this because I hoped it would help me fix a problem I have had with my youngest two.  They have been asking for lunchables.  They never really knew what these were until they saw the kids at school eating them.  Now these may look fun to a 5 and 7 year old, but they lack in nutrition.  I made some of their lunches with a luncheable feel.  I cut up cheese, cucumbers, bread, and cantaloupe.  I them put these in little containers of their lunch box and they got to build their own sandwiches and sides.  I had a little container of yogurt and peanut butter for the sandwiches.  They made cucumber and yogurt bites and peanut butter its.

This is the lunch Gabby made today with her cute pieces.  She is enjoying the fun of making your own combinations.

We  made pancakes and I let the kids cute up their own pancakes.  I love that this food cutter can be used by kids.  They won't cute themselves and they can have a ton of fun.

We don't do the cheese sticks.  I buy organic cheese and have to cut and slice myself. Here is a picture of the cheese that I sliced and then let my 8 year old cut into the pieces.  We then put the cheese squares in a air tight container and had ready for snacks and to throw in lunches.  She had a blast cutting these since mom never lets her use a knife, yet.

We cute all types of fruit, cheeses, breads, pancakes, and a few vegetables.  The cucumbers where easy and I loved how fast I chopped them for salads.

How does it work?
You have two pieces.  The mold that cuts the item is placed over your food and rocked back and forth.  Once you have went down to the cutting board you then use the smaller mold to push out the food.
These are preferred hand-wash but can be thrown in the dishwasher as well.  I have personally only hand-washed and have had no trouble with it.   My kids have enjoyed this and I am probably going to get the pink hearts mold as well.  I love to have fun with food and make healthy choices just as fun as the processed one.  Who needs lunchables when I can make my own healthier versions right at home and the kids still love it.  Whats better is that these molds are BPA FREE!  No toxic plastics touching your child's food!

  1. You gave a very vivid review. I always wondered how they worked.

  2. Oh pancakes is a good idea! I need to try cucumbers too. My daughter is still too young to push hard enough on the Funbites for it to cut, but I think it's something we'll still have around when she's older. I like the idea of letting older kids cut their own food :)

  3. oh that would be awesome for pancakes!!!

  4. We love our fun bites! They are the best for fruit salads in our house!
