Zak Nibble Trays Review & Giveaway!

We received a Zak Nibble Tray when we got home from Canada to try out & review on the blog. I fell in love with it ages ago on a different site and had it on my list of things I wish I had when F&B were babies (seriously, wouldn't it be the cutest baby bento ever???) So did Faith, so we were quite excited to get one of our own to try out. Even better, with all the little compartments, we realized that it really does hold quite a bit of food if you want it to, so it's working it's way into our bento & Muffin Tin Monday rotation.

  1. Adorable! It would be perfect for babies trying a variety of foodstuffs. I guess for my older kids I might try putting chopped pizza toppings for make your own mini pizzas. They might be more likely to use spinach, sweet peppers, olives, shrooms, even asparagus tips!

  22. I have been seeing these everywhere and would love to own one. It looks like it would be so much fun to fill. If was lucky enough to win I would put all kinds of little nibbles in there such as fruits/vegetables/crackers/pretzels and dips, cubed hot dog and sausage etc and I think it would be great for Muffin Tin Monday also. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  26. OMG, what Wouldn't we put in there! LOL! I agree that I would probably use this more for my 2 yo, so we'd probably fill it with some of her favs like fresh organic berries, sliced kiwis, Annie's Homegrown Honey Graham Bunnies, some thawed mixed veggies from the freezer, colby jack cheese shaped like stars, and a few small star-shaped pumpkin butter sandwiches :) Oh! and some yogurt dip in the 3 small top compartments, too!

  32. I have three kids and I think my two year old and four year old would love these. For my four year old daughter, I would put grape tomatoes, cheese cubes, carrots, ranch dressing, maybe some cubed up chicken pieces, and some grapes. I would even still have room. Cool!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. While poking around on the Mealtime Fun Zone, I learned that Zak, as a company, actively participates in various regionally run Green campaigns, such as the Spokane County Commute Trip Reduction campaign, as well as having set up a great, company wide recycling program that covers aluminum cans, cardboard boxes, batteries, engine oil, unserviceable pallets, paper, and even office supplies. Way to go, Zak!!!

  42. My kids don't like their food mixed so this would be perfect. Their favorites right now are: broccoli, carrots, blueberries, raspberries, beans, and cheese. Yes I know my kids are weird. They would rather eat broccoli than pancakes for breakfast and we haven't told them how strange that makes them!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love the recipes on Zak's site! :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Follow you on Facebook! I would put taco stuff in it and send tortillas so my boys could make their own tacos. Cheese and sr cream in the frozen section, and everything else in the yellow, yuuuuuummmmmmmm

    ReplyDelete
  45. We could use that for so many different things in my home. I've learned that if I change my 3 yr olds dishes to fun dishes she actually will sit and eat all her food. And my 10 month old is starting on finger snacks.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I found a great light version of Mac & cheese over on Zak, which is great because my kids love mac & cheese and this is a much much healthier version.

    ReplyDelete

  59. Very cute. My son thinks it looks a bit like a carrot too. For my 2 yr old, we would put some applesauce in a compartment, some grapes, strawberries, blueberries, some pbj cracker sandwiches. Hope to win!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I would definitely put fruit cubes in this! I think fruit-within-a-fruit is adorable!

  69. I love it! I would probably do a mixture of veggies, fruits, meats, and cheeses. Oh and crackers too!!! Since it is a pineapple I would make a Sponge Bob theme. I can totally see a parrot sandwich. XD

  71. followed on facebook, went over to Zak and like the idea of the recipie exchange. Just getting into the world of Bento for my girls and looking foward to making healthy school lunches. This nibble tray is perfect for a tropical smores party! berries, fruit pieces and nutella with mini graham cookies. what a treat!

    ReplyDelete
  72. oh...and some mini marshmallows, organic 'fluff' and/or strawberry jam in the pinapple top would go down a treat too!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I'd put a mix of fruits and veggies in. each space gets one color!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I really did like his philosophy on raising grazers. The majority of us were taught to eat 3 times a day, but because of that we keep eating until our plate is empty. Last night I went out to dinner and I literally had to only a third of my serving since it was so HUGE. We need products like these to help us find the right proportions for our children.

    ReplyDelete
  83. that is the cutest pineapple EVER! I love it! so perfect for lunches on the go - my kids would surely fight over it so maybe it would be better for my lunch - chicken chunks, cheese cubes, whole grain pretzels, chips & salsa - the possibilites are ENDLESS!!!

    I am following you - and now following Zak on fb along with your site, too - thanks for linking me up to them all! I love all the stuff on Zak's site so I've bookmarked it - they really are great for knowing what kids like! thanks again!

  100. i think it would be fun to do chocolate "fondue" type of things in it. dice up fruits, cheese, and put in crackers in the yellow part and keep in fridge. the green part would be soften milk chocolate, white chocolate, and dark chocolate. This would be a perfect summer snack because the heat will keep the chocolate soft while the kids biting into cold fruits/cheese. mMMmm yum!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Cute! Appetizers for a family picnic, school lunch for my 6yo....

    ReplyDelete
  102. I would put humus, fresh vegies, cut fruit and slices of cheese.

  103. Yum to the hummus and veggies idea. I might thrown in some nutella too...for desert.

    Did you see the lotus bowls on Zak's site. Gorgeous. I downloaded their spreadsheet and Eliotts hardware is all that is listed in this area carrying their product. Wish I could order online.

  106. This looks like fun. I would put chunks of pineapple, banana, apple and other fruits in the bottom half. On top, I would put in my marshmallow cream fruit dip and caramel dips. Then I would use this for a healthy desert for all of us.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I love this idea! My kids eat better given choices... I would put carrots, sunflower seeds, berries, and dried pinapple in the middle four compartments, pb sandwitch (cut) into the top (and maybe bottom compartments depending on room) and hummus in the dipping area for the carrots. There are so many other ideas too! (like 1/2 a fruit muffin and pumpkin seeds and hard boiled egg...!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  109. I would love to have one for my son as he is getting ready to start preschool and we're constantly on the go! So much easier to take! I'd fill it with his favorites - fruits and veggies!!!

    ReplyDelete
  110. I am a new follower and I love the pineapple shaped lunchbox!

  111. I checked out the website and love all the neat children's products.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I love the nibble tray! It is exactly how I like to eat my snacks at work - some hummus, some ranch, and maybe a miso dressing for dips. And I'd pack veggies and pita: sugar snap peas, carrots, cucumber. It would be a great way to eat more veggies

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    We would put little fruits and homeade macaroons, some homeade granola, edamame, definately would use some hummus (love that section can be frozen) I actually cant think of anything my son eats we couldnt put in there... would so love one of these.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I tweeted about the giveaway. (shbmom4)

    ReplyDelete
  123. This looks like the perfect tray for our version of "lunchables" when we go to the park! The boys love pepperoni, mozzarella sticks, goldfish and fruits (I have to convince them on the veggies LOL) and I would love to have a cuter container to put it all in! I'm sure they would think it's pretty neat too!

  127. I would put pineapple in it of course! Also hummus, veggies, pita chips and berries. I'm lucky that my son loves all of those things!

    ReplyDelete
  128. I love it! I'd use it for all the "usual suspects": cubes of tofu or chicken and cheese, seasonal fruit, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes, and some kind of "sweet treat" to finish it off.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I cannot even begin to think of all the different things I would put in there for my kids! A mix of fruits and veggies with hummus and yogurt dips is the first thing that comes to mind!!

  133. I've been admiring this box for a while. I love that the top of the pineapple is removable, and with two boys-an infant and a toddler, I'd love to pack the top part with easy to eat goodies for my baby, and then the rest with a healthy variety for my toddler.

    I follow you on Facebook as well as on here, and I LOVE your blog!!
