UPDATE 12/5/12 (Potential Issue): Today when I was filling up one of my Little Green Pouches, I noticed the top seal is starting to peel off, making it impossible to "lock" the pouch. I have reached out to the company to find out if this issue is due to the heat of my dishwasher, or just a "faulty seal", and I will keep this blog posted with any updates! Just thought I'd pass this "issue" along.
ORIGINAL BLOG POST: A few weeks ago, I was sitting around with some of my "mom" friends talking about the disposable baby food squeeze-pouches we all buy at the store. As we were chatting, I thought about how smart it would be if someone came up with a REUSABLE baby food pouch that we could put our own homemade purees in. After a little research, I found out this idea is already on the market, and I of course placed an order.
The Little Green Pouch was created by a couple moms (Maggie and Melissa), who were sick of throwing away and spending money on the single-use food packs. I especially love this product because of the traveling we've been doing with our 15-month-old. When we travel, all the "healthy food rules" go out the window, and Linna basically gets to eat whatever makes her happy (nothing like a unhappy toddler on a 19-hour flight). No matter what kind of a mood Linna is in, she always wants a squeezy food-pack, so I can count on her getting her daily fruits and veggies in these little packs. While the disposable food packs cost a buck or two at home in Minnesota, they are around $4 to $5 in Singapore (crazy right?!)! Linna eats at least one pack a day, so we had my parents bring an entire suitcase of disposable food packs with them when they came to visit. However, we quickly ran out, and I wasn't about to spend $4-$5 per pack in Singapore.
I ordered a 4-pack of the Little Green Pouch for under $15. I'm able to make my own purees (packed with veggies), and Linna sucks them down like she would a disposable pack. I'm very excited to take these on our flight back home to Minnesota, so I know Linna is getting at least some fruits and veggies, along with the massive amounts of "crap food" she'll likely be eating on the plane! I'm happy I ordered these reusable food pouches when I did, because currently (as of the date this blog was posted) the Little Green Pouches are SOLD OUT! The company just launched on October 11th, and there's already a waiting list. If I were you, I would get on that list, simply because of all the money you'll end up saving by making your own purees. My 15-month-old couldn't tell the difference between the disposable pouches and the reusable, dishwasher-able, freezable Little Green Pouches. We are big fans of this product in the Saigh household!
I have been saying that forever! Man, if I only had the motivation to do it! Well, I am glad someone did it. Getting on that list!ReplyDelete
I just got some of these for my 2 year old son (he has eating issues and the pouches are the only way to get nutrition in him somedays) and I love them!!ReplyDelete
