Moms know all too well the struggle of having a hungry toddler in the grocery cart: their snack container can be easily dropped, it’s hard for them to reach into, and it can be super messy. Julie Penrod decided to make life easier for herself and her own kids when she thought up Snap & Shop. A recently launched Kickstarter will hopefully bring the product to parents, toddlers and shopping carts everywhere. Julie stopped by the studio to show us how the BPA-free, portable and dishwasher friendly device works and to tell us how Kickstarter could help her reach her goals. She also shared some inspiring words for moms who want to create their own inventions and bring their ideas to life. The Snap and Shop kickstarter is oficially underway. You can check it out directly on kickstarter or email Jule@SnapAndShopTray.com for more information. You can also find Snap and Shop on facebook and twitter.
