Cullen and I are on the go all the time – we spend most afternoons at playdates, music classes, the zoo, the parks, or just out walking our neighborhood. Depending on what we’re doing, we often end up out of the house for snack or lunch time, so I end up packing a lot of food to take with us.
Thank goodness for pouches, right? They are easy to throw in a bag and go, and – filled with fruit and veggie blends – they pack a more nutritious punch than crackers and goldfish. The only downside? They are expensive! Often clocking in around $2 each (for organic brands), that really adds up after a week of snacking. And if your kid is anything like mine, he can eat two – maybe even three – in one sitting. They also create a of of unnecessary waste!
Our reusable food pouch has a zipper seal at the top that can be opened for filling with your favorite pureed or semi-solid foods, and then securely closed. For your homemade baby food (or store-bought applesauce), a spoon works well. For mom’s smoothies, a measuring cup with a pour spout does an A+ job.
Our food pouches are made of durable, BPA-free and phthalate-free plastic. They are built to withstand those beatings that only young children can give and (after cleaning) take some more.
Our reusable food pouches are dishwasher safe – just prop them upside down over the tongs on the top shelf. For best use, we recommend rinsing all the homemade spinach surprise out of the pouch and spout before running the cycle.
If you like to cook homemade baby food in big batches, why not fill up a bunch of our reusable pouches and pop them in the freezer for later use? You can defrost them in warm water when you are ready to enjoy. Or, pack them as freezer packs in your lunch in the morning – they’ll be ready for squeezing by the afternoon.
The size and suppleness of our reusable baby food pouch makes it great for use by those darling little hands.
I’ve been using the pouches for a month or so now (I was generously given a set), and Cullen and I are both really happy with them. My favorite use is to fill them with yogurt. Cullen absolutely loves yogurt, but it takes a long time to spoon feed him a whole carton of it (since he hasn’t quite mastered the spoon yet himself). With these reusable pouches, I just fill it up, seal it closed, and he feeds himself the whole thing. He can’t get enough!
We also make a lot of smoothies, and I fill them with that as well. So much cheaper than the store-bought pouches, and I like that I can provide different ingredients and more variety.
