For parents on the go, mealtime can be a little tricky when your lap doubles as a table and chair. Allera Travel Products has come up with an ingenious product to make mealtime a bit more manageable while traveling.

We spoke with Francine A. Weinberg, the founder and owner of Allera Travel Products, to learn more about the company and what new parents can expect at the Chicago Baby Show.
For someone unfamiliar with Allera Travel Products, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
We are a travel products manufacturer. I am an engineer, and also the company’s founder and inventor of all the products. Baby Tripster is the first product that I am producing and bringing to market.
My company’s mission is to invent and produce innovative, travel container solutions that make travel with liquids efficient and effortless.
I was inspired to invent Baby Tripster when I was sitting on a NYC bus going home from work. I saw a mom struggling to hold her toddler with one hand and feed her with the other. She had the food container and lid both balanced on one leg and her child balanced on the other. When the toddler almost kicked the food container on the floor, I immediately thought that there must be a better way so I set about inventing Baby Tripster.
Tell us about the company’s background. When did Allera Travel Products start and how has it evolved since then?
My company is brand new—I am a startup—and Baby Tripster is my first product. I am hoping to evolve into a much larger company with many products!

Baby Tripster reinvents feeding your baby while you are traveling. Whether you are out for a day in the park, or traveling on a plane for a week, Baby Tripster is the food container that will be your baby’s constant travel companion.
Baby Tripster is made from premium, BPA-free plastic that is durable, leak-proof, and dishwasher and microwave safe.
