If you have children, then wax food wraps are going to be a painless, easy switch for you. Not only are they safer, healthier options for children, but your kids can actually help you in the kitchen. My children love to help me. God bless them. Well, really, God bless ME, because if you have children, especially young ones, then you know that by “helping” me, they’re actually making my life slightly more difficult. They really do love to help with dinner prep, mixing, blending, and even clean up. They’re not at the age to help with anything on or near the stove or oven. My oldest is an expert egg-cracker, batter-mixer, and dish dryer.
Recently, I discovered an AMAZING tool that I now cannot live without, bees wax food wraps. I mean, where have these been all my life??
These are 100% biodegradable, environmentally friendly, sustainable replacements for plastic wrap and plastic baggies in my kitchen. These wraps are made from harvested beeswax, organic jojoba oil, tree resin, and cloth. They’re handmade on a small rural farm in Kentucky. And let me tell you what these can do for your budget. These wraps are significantly cheaper than any other wax food wraps on the market. You get a lot for your buck, and with proper care, they last a year. And now you get to skip buying plastic wrap and baggies at the store! I love it!
Most importantly, my relationship with plastic wrap is over. Seriously, I don’t have to fight it anymore. And one of my favorite parts? My daughter’s responsibilities have grown in the kitchen! I love giving her small responsibilities that give her big victories. These wraps can be used as a cover on a bowl of leftovers, to wrap a sliced fruit or veggie, on cheese, and on many other foods in your kitchen.
Now my daughter even uses the wraps to pack her own lunch! Honestly, she’s wrapping her own sandwich, carrot sticks and cheese cubes. Giving her these seemingly tiny chores gives her such a confidence boost.
And you know why else they’re awesome for your family, environment and budget aside? They’re BPA free, plastic free, chemical and dye free. If one of your littles get their hands on them, they’re in no danger as they would be with plastic wrap and baggies.
Ok, so environmentally-friendly aside, these bees wax wraps are an awesome way to begin to get your children to play an active role in the kitchen. They are kid-approved, lunch box-approved, definitely momma-approved, tiny wins.
