  • Steph Duffey: I love Terra 20 and all their products! I really love the reusable snack bags and the juice in a box for my little ones...and so many others!!!
  • Tammy: The Sistema containers look great! Would love a couple of them.
  • Shawna: The stainless steel containers look good to me. I'm all about dishwasher safe.
  • Katie: what a selection. I found it hard to choose. I need a new lunch bag and it needs to be washable. The cotton ones by fluf Look lovely. Great designs, I
  • nikki: I love Sistema containers - dishwasher safe and easy for little hands to open. Would definitely pick up some more of those!
  • Elana Aptowitzer: Those stainless steel snack containers are beauties! Those would be perfect for everyone in the family!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (16) and Sarah (14). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times, and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
