Mirabrands Review & Giveaway

This week I had the opportunity to review a set of stainless steel snack bowls from Mirabrands.  Each bowl holds approximately 1 cup (8 oz).  My first thought when these were sent to me was “why metal?”  what is the benefit of having a metal bowl over a plastic one?  That to me is the #1 feature that makes these bowls stand out and be different than other snack bowls for kids.  So I’ve spent the last week thinking up ideas for ways that make these bowls unique from run of the mill snack bowls.
First of all, metal takes on the temperature of it’s surrounding and reaches those temperatures quicker than plastic bowls.  So it would keep hot things hot and cold things cold easier.  One of the ideas I thought of was the homemade yogurt drops (you can find the idea on pinterest).  These are a great snack for kids, but have to be kept frozen or else they’ll just turn into a runny mush.  Keeping them in one of these containers (but will still need to be by an ice pack) will help keep them frozen for a picnic or traveling.

My next thought was how perfect these would be for camping!  Because they are metal, they would heat up food relatively quickly over a camp fire.  (don’t put the lid near the fire though- it’s still plastic.  I can’t believe I feel I need to post this warning, but you just never know with some people haha)  So if you have a small child that is limited to what they can eat this would be great to heat up rice cereal, oatmeal, etc. while camping.  I plan on adding these to my camping kit!

Here’s some “official” information sent to me by the sponsor-
