5 yummy treats for your reusable food pouch

*Disclosure:  I received the products mentioned below for the purpose of this review.*   I really believe that small changes can have big results.  It seems like the kitchen is one of the easiest places to make these small changes.  From using reusable water bottles to cloth napkins instead of paper towels, you could really make a difference.  How about adding in some reusable food pouches like the ones from Yummi Pouch? Yummi Pouch Yummi Pouch is a family run company.  Andy and Katie created Yummi Pouch to help families meet the nutritional needs of their children, whether home or on the go, while making the process simple, eco friendly and cost effective.  Even better, she made it fun for the kids and adults too!  Creating your own recipes that you and the kids can all enjoy is something your whole family can do together.  So get the kids in the kitchen and let them help create recipes using the healthy foods you probably already have in your refrigerator! Yummi Pouch Yummi Pouches are super easy to use.  They are BPA free, Phthalate free, and perfect for bringing healthy, on the go snacks for the kids {and yourself}.  Using the stand up bottom, you can mix up your concoctions and pour them in using the extra wide zipper opening at the top. *I have found that you cannot fill them while the cap is on or they tip over when standing.*  The pouches we received are 6 ounce capacity.  Fill the pouches about 3/4 of the way full {there’s a line to help you out with that}. Seriously, that line is there for a reason.  I filled it too full and when I tried to close it, it got a bit messy.  *Put the cap back on before you try to zip it shut.*   Freeze it, refrigerate it or toss it in the bag and go.  When you are ready to enjoy, twist off the cap.  Perfect for little hands too, plus, they can twist it off themselves.  These have been a lifesaver during the summer. Taking fruits and veggies out with us doesn’t always work, but we can fill and freeze our pouches to take them with when we head out.  By the time we get ready to eat them, they are unfrozen.  Once it is full, use a dry erase marker to write the date and contents on unless you are eating it right away. Yummi PouchYummi Pouch Clean up is super easy.  Rinse it out, pop it in the dishwasher, then reuse! Yummi Pouch We have come up with some crazy, weird and somewhat gross concoctions because I let the kids decide what we are going to make.   However, we do have a few favorites.  I’m working on figuring out something with pomegranate because that is one of our favorites.  Next week, I may just have some new ideas with kiwi, Maggie’s new favorite fruit!

  • I can’t wait to try these out when my daughter is older. Love that they are bpa free and that I can pick or my daughter can pick what she wants me to put in her food pouch.

  • Great ideas! I’m excited to get a reusable pouch as my daughter is about to start exploring all the flavours. 🙂
