If you’ve been reading here for a long time, you know a few things about me.Things like the fact that I am not that great of cook (that’s an understatement) and I have some strict rules about what Mason is allowed to eat (we really try to limit sugar and junk food, etc) When you combine these two things, snacks when we’re out and about can really be a challenge.
One of my “go to” road trip snacks for him have been fruit pouches. You know, the single serving squeeze pouches filled with baby food, fruit and yogurt concoctions, or applesauce to the tune of like $2 each? Mason LOVES them and they are super convenient, especially in the car. But, I definitely don’t love the price or the “constantly throwing stuff away” aspect of them. It seemed silly to be paying so much for something I could make at home if it wasn’t for the convenient mess free “toddler can feed himself anywhere” aspect of them.
Enter… Yummi Pouch!
Yummi Pouches are REUSABLE food pouches that you can fill yourself at home and reuse again and again. They are dishwasher and freezer safe and BPA and Phthalate free, so no worrying about how you’re going to clean them or what chemicals they may be leeching into your kiddos food. And, they’re so easy to use!
Filling the Yummi Pouch is easy because of it’s wide top zipper opening. I’m not the most graceful person ever, but pouring yogurt, applesauce, and my homemade smoothie mixture into these things is a breeze. If I can fill these without making a mess, anyone can! I LOVE that they hold 6 oz (as many store bought ones are 3.5 or 4 oz) so when Mason has one, he really feels like he had something somewhat substantial and not just a small treat!
Mason was super excited to see his new pouches. He loves that they are different colors and enjoys picking which color he wants to try. I love that they’re super easy to wash. They’ve been through the dishwasher several times in the last month and still look and function just like the first day I got them! I’m super happy to be saving the environment AND not spending $1.89 a crack on something filled with a bunch of added sweetners and chemicals. As for Mason, he’s super excited to see something he knows is JUST his in the fridge.
