Thanks for enjoying the Plum Pantry. On this page I share products I personally use, love, and recommend for “take-n-go” times with kids. As an Amazon Associate I earn a small percentage from qualifying purchases.

Cold Bags

The PackIt bags are one of the best purchases we’ve made. We have several of them and they’re great for a day out and also for traveling. I’ve filled them with bags of frozen breast milk and flown overseas with them… They’re that good.

Lunch Blox

If you’ve seen my Instagram feed, you know I use the Lunch Bloxes for my daughter’s lunch and travel snacks. I also use them for myself!

I use these all the time for the kids, including as lunch boxes for preschool.

Silicone Mats/Bowls

These silicone mats are also really great. Sometimes at home but always for eating at restaurants! I’ve linked the EZPZ mats because they’re really good.

High chair

We have one of these and seriously, we used it all the time at restaurants because the restaurant high chairs weren’t tall enough and the poor baby had the table at their eyeballs.


For cutlery, we’ve had great success with both the fun, colorful plastic sets (because they so colorful) and also the metal sets (because they look like ours.) It’s great to have a variety because, as we know, kids change their minds! Ikea also sells some metal cutlery that are great.


These guys are great workhorses. My daughter’s used the same ones for over 2 years. They’re light and transportable, and they air dry.

I love these for travel or eating at restaurants. You can roll them up, and also wipe with a wet wipe. The one I have isn’t available anymore, but I’ve linked this one because I would totally buy it with that big trough!


These 360 cups… My daughter is almost 3. The Sassy ones are great because as the child gets older, you can remove the handles.

Hi, I'm Thalia the Dietitian 👋 I help parents overcome picky eating challenges, conquer mealtime battles and raise happy & healthy eaters. My unique approach to parenting at mealtimes uses elements of the “division of responsibility”, but goes even further when it comes to restricting (or not restricting) foods like dessert. I help parents through my courses and 1-1 coaching program approach mealtime situations from a place of respect, curiosity, and understanding to achieve their desired results. It’s my belief that every child deserves a healthy relationship with food, and every parent can give this gift to their child. I have a Master’s Degree in clinical nutrition and dietetics and I'm mum to two little ladies (and a retired guide dog lab.)
