SnacTripster is a one-of-a-kind brand with a mission to make healthy snacking more convenient for kids with disabilities. Founder and inventor, Francine Weinberg, noticed for years that her brother with Autism struggled to complete everyday tasks like removing lids and tying shoelaces. She realized that her brother’s experience was not unique and that children worldwide with Autism, and similar disabilities, face the same challenges with motor control issues. This realization led Francine to a seven-year-long journey to create the perfect, re-usable, travel food kit that would enable kids, who struggle to do these tasks, to no longer have to struggle.
Today, SnacTripster is the ultimate leak-proof food travel kit that was developed with specific key features in mind. These features include a patented ergonomic design that fits in the palm of a child’s hand and an attached lid, as well as a compact shape that is stackable offering convenience and durability to stand the test of time. They’re easy to clean and available in a variety of fun colors that encourage kids with special needs to want to use them. Additionally, SnacTripsters are BPA-Free, dishwasher, freezer, and microwave safe. And, they are FDA-certified food safe for children six months and up. As most people are aware, most food travel containers on the market are not leak-proof nor are they durable enough to withstand certain rigors of everyday use, especially by kids. Francine made it her mission to ensure this would be something that she could guarantee. So not only is SnacTripster guaranteed to be leak-proof, but it also comes with a lifetime parts warranty.
When Francine initially set out on her journey to create SnacTripster she knew it would be a challenge as only a very small percentage of patent holders are women. According to expert statistics, only about three out of every 1,000 patents are held by women who successfully commercialize their patented product. Francine, who has a Bachelor of Engineering degree, and an MBA, has extensive experience consulting for Fortune 500 companies as a professional project manager and has believed for years that creativity is the best solution for complex issues. Despite the odds, Francine now holds multiple patents in the U.S. and internationally for SnacTripster and other products, and has turned her dream and sweat equity into a reality that will help others.
Knowing through personal experience, and in-depth research, Francine recognized that children with autism are much more visual. With SnacTripster, the clear container allows them to see the food inside and the fun colors and creative add-ons such as the wide variety of stickers to decorate SnacTripster containers will capture and hold the child’s attention and fuel their imagination! The stickers are safe, removable, reusable and made from durable water-resistant vinyl, and developed to last a long time.
So, while Francine has delivered to the market a must-have food container kit for travel, whether it be on a long journey or simply to school or the park, she has also created social good through her product venture. SnacTripster will be life-changing for kids with disabilities. The brand will also help reduce single-use plastic waste that litters, and in some cases, destroys environments. Because of her brother’s disability, and her desire to help others just like him experience excitement and ease with healthy snacking, Francine donates products to kids in underserved areas and sponsors fundraising and other similar events at special needs schools. The SnacTripster team also does its part to participate in beach clean-up missions regularly.
