Survival Bag Guide

This segment really excites us! Other than the exciting “food research” we do, we absolutely love sharing “What’s in the bag?”

Keep checking back, where we continue to add some more spreads of ideas!!

Our photos include inspiration for essential items and ideas of items that we include in our bags on rotation.

Our biggest tip is to over prepare! We’re not suggestion to pack a carry on suitcase, but think about packing more than you think you’ll need.

We find it’s best to include high value items, which are either the kid’s favourite items or items they rarely get to play with. Have fun with it!

If you’re a business and you think you have a perfect item for children to play with when out dining, please contact us!

Click here for our under 2 year old suggestions or over 2 year old suggestions. We will offer suggestions for kids over 4 or 5 years old soon.

Under 2 year old ideas!

In addition to the nappy bag, we love to include the following items:
– Extra wipes for dirty hands
– A bib with a pocket to catch dropped food
– Children’s cutlery.
– A terry towel. It’s very handy to put on their lap when they are in the high chair. It saves a huge mess on the floor.
– A water bottle/sippy cup
– Some snacks (for those who have food associations with high chairs)
– Some books that have some sensory and activity component.
