I want to backup my Nintendoland and new super mario bros U saves and put them on an SD or USB stick so if my Wii U ever breaks then all I have to do is buy a new console and transfer my saves and its all good.

How do I do this?

Your saves cannot be backed up because Nintendo hates their customers.
You belong on the blizz D3 forums, it was built for people like you. Like how some barns are built specifically to contain filthy animals.

so you mean to tell me Nintendo took a step back from the Wii which allowed you to do this?

hell even the ps3 allows you to do this.

Damn this sucks.

The Wii also blocked a lot of saves from being copied. Some, like SSBB, would not allow a save to be used that was not from the original system. Tied to console ID. So when I sold my Wii I could not keep my glorious SSBB data. So why would I ever cone back to the system again?

You could transfer your SSBB save to the wii u though with Nintendo save transfer tool.
