Yummi pouch review

I received the following products for free to review.

We love baby food pouches. Before i heard of reusable pouches we had used the disposable ones. Which are extremely wasteful, and cost way too much. One of the first brands of reusable pouches that I heard of was the Yummi Pouch! So of course, I was super excited to get the chance to review for them. They sent us the Little Munchkin set for review. 

Which included some really cute stickers and a funnel pitcher!

As I have stated in the past, these are not the first food pouches I have used. These are however a bit different. The spout is actually on the side of these pouches. They also stand up when expanded. As well as fill through the top. Which is also a great feature. The yummi pouch is a product that gives you all of the convenience of the baby food pouches plus all the added benefits of being cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and healthier since you can fill them with your own, home-made purees.

  • It is completely reusable, recyclable, and green.
  • Freezer and Dishwasher safe
  • BPA, Phthalate and PVC Free
  • It has an extra wide cap which makes it ideal for little hands.
  • It has a specially designed bottom that allows the pouch to stand up while you fill it.
  • Extra wide mouth for filling, and a reinforced zipper to keep it from opening!
  • It has a 6oz fill line which helps for portion control and leaves room for expanding in the freezer
  • It has clearly marked lines on the back where you can write the date and contents (which then wash off when you’re done!)
  • The spout is sturdy and will stand up to those teething, chewing babies!

The Yummi Pouch is easy to use and simple for small children. They do not require too much pressure to get the contents out. The plastic is also extremely durable. They are purely leak proof too! Yummi Pouch makes so many great accessories to use with the pouches, from color-coded caps to a special tool that makes filling them a breeze! Food pouches are super convenient too. 

Yummi Pouch reusable food pouches encourage healthy snacks for active kids. Our eco-friendly food pouches are freezer safe, dishwasher safe, BPA-free, Phthalate-free, and can be filled with healthy blended snacks and easily taken on-the-go, no spoon required!
Our vision is to help moms and dads prepare healthy snacks for their active kids. Yummi Pouches are perfect to be filled with nutritious smoothies and purees prepared in batches, frozen or refrigerated, and easily consumed on-the-go. Yummi Pouches are ideal for moms who make homemade baby food, as well as kids who enjoy taking yogurt and applesauce to school.

It is also larger than many other food pouches.

You can use reusable pouches for several things. As well as for school lunches. They also make great water bottles!

The funnel pitcher does make filling these a breeze! I love this thing!

My daughter also had a lot of fun helping me put everything together, as well as stickers!

The Yummi Pouch retails for $14.99 for a pack of 6. Which divides out to  almost $2.50 a pouch!

We enjoyed using the Yummi Pouch, and I plan to use them to make delicious smoothies, and yogurt for my daughters school lunch. I can really see these lasting us for years! Yes, they are really that good!

What would you use your Yummi Pouches for?

Go Fresh Baby food pouch review & #Giveaway

I received a free product in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Being eco friendly can be easy. You do not have to be a hippie to love our planet! I'm not. Sure, I am not 100% green living. But I try to do my part. I cloth diaper, and recycle. So obviously I do my best to avoid buying store bought baby food. Making our own is just so much cheaper. Baby food pouches are still a new concept to me. But after trying a few brands I have grown to love them dearly! Or maybe I am lazy. Either way, I love them. Reusable food pouches are easy  to use and clean. What is more, they are great for our environment. A bargain at that! 
Alright, so she is a REALLY messy eater.
These pouches are made of a food grade plastic that are BPA and Phthalate free and freezer friendly. Just make a bunch ahead of time and store it away! Great for babysitters! Even for on the go feedings. GoFreshBaby food pouch is perfect for fresh organic food purees, homemade fruit smoothies, yogurt treats and more.

A three-pack of these pouches retails for $9.99. Which is a huge bargain because I have seen single use pouches for almost $3 each! Ouch. 
These pouches have a double zippered side opening. That can make it a bit tricky to fill without a funnel. So go invest in one of those. It is worth it. The opening is not all that big. You can also swap out the caps for the disposable ones if you lost them.

However, they do not seem to hold very much. I can only fill these reusable baby food pouches with 4 oz of food. Not a huge deal of course. But lets face it, 4 oz is just not going to fill up a hungry baby. Even after nursing her! This kid eats like a toddler already. Speaking of, Aria will be 1 years old is September! Oh how the time flies by. 

The GoFreshBaby pouch is economical. You can buy them in sets of three for less than the cost of some single competitor pouches. The caps are replaceable, so even if one gets tossed, I can go on their website, and buy a replacement pack. For the price of just a few disposable pouches, I have my own, and, bonus, I get to choose exactly what Aria eats.

These food pouches are still pretty thin when filled. 
Update:: After further use, I was able to get the  bottom gusset to expand. Creating more space. At first I was not able to, but with several uses it became rather easy. I am extremely happy with the amount that it holds now. 

Here is another photo of a filled up food pouch.

You can purchase your very own Go Fresh Baby reusable food pouches online for only $9.99 for a pack of three! There is also a funnel available through their website.
