Parker had his first speech therapy session today so we did a simple lunch before hand with drink bottles that he and his sister could take along with them to his appointment. The appointment was interesting…he got very frustrated with the session and hated to have to sit and try to talk or keep identifying pictures over and over. Unlike last time he was happy to leave.
But I digress… we have been using Bilt stainless steel water bottles lately and they are great for travel. They are small sports bottles for kids with a lid that goes out the spout and a loop for easy carrying. The bottom half is stainless steel and the top half is BPA free plastic. Parker’s has a black lid and a little monster on the bottle. Paige has a plain steel bottle with a green top.
We only put water in them so they are easy to clean, they are very light, and they are easy for my toddler to use. They are a bit cold to the touch during winter but that is too be expected. They do at least have a nifty plastic lip at the top so we don’t get any frozen lips. ;) They are more eco friendly than plain plastic and they are more durable than lacquer coated aluminum bottles. I like the design too… very simple, stylish, and with grooves for easier grip. These are also the perfect size for school lunches.
Reusablebags.com has some for $13.99 each in all blue and and all green. I could only find the kind I have, plain steel and print graphics, on the company site which is Canadian.
On the menu: Apple slices, banana slices, walnuts, dried cherries, baby tomatoes, carrots, and celery.
