Bye Bye plastic sandwich bags. It's time for us to part. Smart moms use washable, snack bags for school lunches and toddler snacks. Cute, eco-smart and thrifty too, we've rounded up a few of our favorites. Resnackit, Three Green Moms and Itzy Ritzy have all been put to the test. The winner?
Resnackit: Mom invented (naturally)--these were the easiest to wash and use. The velcro is in just the right spot. We love the prints--from pirates to flirty bubbles. Two sizes: Sandwich 7'?W x 6'?L ($7.99 and $9.99) and Snack 6'?W x 5'?L ($7.99). The outside is 100% cotton, the inside (lining) is a non-dyed nylon that is lead free, phthalate free, BPA free and PVC (vinyl) free. Either shake out the crumbs, wipe it down, throw it in the dishwasher or machine wash and dry. Tip: turn your ReSnackIt inside out when machine washing machine to help avoid the Velcro attaching to other items.
Lunchskins: Completely adorable pop art and graphic prints and we LOVE the outside label (use a sharpie and you're likely to get this back from playdates and school). Three sizes: Sandwich 6.5 x 6.5" ($8.95), Sub 8 x 7" ($10.95)and Snack 6.5 x 3.5" ($7.95). We found the velcro a little scratchy every time we filled the bag. These hand sewn bags are dishwasher-safe and quick-drying.

Itzy Ritzy:Snack Happened reusable bags ($7.95) are our favorite for fruit snacks. They seemed to provide the best insulation. The zipper was easy for little people to open and shut and kept small items from sneaking out. 7 x 7" and machine washable. FDA approved and BPA Free. These are also great for stashing your phone at the pool or beach. Wish they came in smaller size for mini items.
Momtrends was not paid for this post. We did get samples of all three versions to test.
