No no no no – I don’t mean literally, put your dang clothes back on peeps!
With the increased awareness on the impacts of plastics on our environment, particularly if you have been navigating the turbulent waters that are the New South Wales ban on single-use plastic shopping bags, I have been taking a look at how we can help here at home. We are Aldi shoppers, so the transition to bringing our own bags everywhere else was no biggie. But once I started to look at our daily wastage I realised a lot of it was coming from food packaging. The team at Smash Enterprises are here to save the day with their fun, practical and economical Nude Food Movers range!

Playing my part as a Nude Food Day Ambassador for 2018 I was very generously gifted the tools to reduce my environmental impact, I just didn’t see it that way at the time! Staring at the rubbish-free lunch boxes, fruity movers, snack tubes and snack boxes I was impressed with the design and functionality but wasn’t entirely sure how to incorporate them into our daily life. Enter the toddler – problem solved!
Any parent knows that heading out for the day (or even just a couple of hours with my little guy) means you best be snack-ready. After being caught out a couple of times, this #newbie swore never again to be caught scouring the supermarket aisles with a ‘feral-hungry’ screaming toddler desperately searching for something remotely healthy and/or budget-friendly. Like every good scout says, be prepared (pretty sure that is also a line from a song from The Lion King – #disneymum strikes again!)
It is safe to say the Nude Food Movers make me feel like that smug, well-organised mum who is nailing parenting one snack at a time. From dinosaur hunts at our local wetlands centre, to my brother’s Oz-Tag carnival and every outing in between, our Nude Food Movers have been there to save my sanity.
By being prepared when out and about with the little guy, I not only save a bucket load of money, but also am able to ensure I have healthy snack options on hand that I may otherwise not be able to find at a pinch. For us, the standout winner has been the Nude Food Movers Rubbish Free Lunch Boxes. Their name says it all – handy separate compartments means that you can pack a good variety of foods without worrying that your sandwich is going to get soggy or your fruit is going to get smears of Vegemite on it!
Available in standard or Mini size, this lunch box is designed with function in mind.

Not only do these handy lunch boxes have great compartments including two removable leak-proof containers and a sandwich ‘seatbelt’ (to separate multiples or keep an ice block from making your bread soggy), but *drumroll please* they are EASY TO CLEAN! Each Nude Food Movers Lunch Box comes completely apart, lids and dividers included, for easy cleaning. This ensures that not only can you avoid cross-contamination, but these babies will last way longer therefore reducing unnecessary financial and environmental burdens of frequent purchasing.
If I can pull this bad boy apart to clean, anyone can!
The Nude Food Movers range is not only practical but it is affordable. For the price some retailers are asking for the insanely complicated bento-style lunch boxes, you could easily set your family up with a standard size Nude Food Movers Rubbish Free Lunch Box (RRP $14), a Nude Food Movers Yoghurt Mover (RRP $6.97), a Nude Food Movers Fruity Mover (my work-fave, RRP $3.99) AND a Nude Food Movers Snack Tube (RRP $4.99). Now I only did general maths, but to me that’s a no-brainer folks!
Need more convincing? Didn’t think so. Because I believe in full-disclosure though I will include this warning:
Nude Food Movers are fun. Which leads to happy-snacking. Which, if you are my toddler, means you associate every bench seat or unfurled picnic rug with ‘snack break’. Ditch the single use cling wrap and sandwich bags, re-purpose the hard-to-clean/bland/boring old lunchbox, and get Nude!
