Little Green Pouch Review & Giveaway



Emerson never really ate purees very much. He hated them off a spoon, but when he finally learned how to suck (around 8-9 months) we started using the pouch food. It was a great, easy way to get more fruits and veggies in his system, but still make him feel like a toddler and not so much like a baby. He's very independent and these were great for him. 

But since we were buying organic and they are about $1-$1.50 each it was getting pricey. We were giving him 1-2 a day. It just became too much. So I started looking around for reusable pouches and came across Little Green Pouch. They come in a pack of 4 and you can fill them on your own for a more cost effective way of feeding your baby!



They have a zipper on the top of the pouch. You open it up, fill it with food and then seal it. Now baby can eat the pouch like normal out of the spout.

So these were super easy to use. Like stated above, you just open the zipper, fill, seal and then eat! Really easy.
I had some baby food jars to use up still and he wouldn't just eat them off a spoon, so I decided to use them up by putting them in these pouches and then he'd slurp them right down like nobody's business. It was a great way to use up some food I already had.
But even better was that I could puree my own food and give it to him like this.

I did make some of my own baby food for him in the past, but he refused to eat it from a spoon... so this is perfect for us. I can mash up bananas or put some applesauce in here for him and he'll just slurp it down.
It really did solve a dilemma for us and allows him to get more healthy nutrients.
Here he is just slurping away at some Pear Avocado.
They are freezer safe, top rack dishwasher safe and can also go in the fridge. 

I have also used up some of the last of my freezer baby food I had made as well. I put my cubes in the pouch and then put in the fridge for about 1 day until they thawed. Worked out perfectly. 

We love these pouches and use them pretty frequently. They have become a staple in our house and I know I'll use them for a couple years probably. 
I also like that the spout is a decent size so small chunks can come out no problem. 

Price: $14.99 for 4 of them!! Once you use them 15 times you've made up for the price of the store ones. 

Overall: *****

It is easier to carry food in a pouch than to carry it in a jar with a plastic bag and a spoon :)


Sarah Hayes said...

allenma said...

I looked for reuseable pouches with my DD and couldn't find any. I'm due in Sept and can't wait to buy some :)


Keara B. said...

I love giving my little one organic foods, but the organic pouches are so dang expensive! I'd love to be able to make my own purees in pouches for her- especially since she loves them for snacks and trips.


aperry said...

Make my own purees instead of buying pouches... Create less waste.


Deann said...

My kids love using pouches but they are so expensive! It's a perfect way to give them a healthy snack.


Mrs. B said...

My daughter will eat anything that comes in a pouch, but I hate spending money on the store ones! I do like making my own baby food, so reusable pouches are perfect.


scootin monkey said...

We go through a ton of pouches. It would be great to spend less money and still feed organic fruits and veggies this way :)


Amanda said...

It would be so much cheaper and less trash if I had these to use!

Oh my gosh, we are becoming a foster family and this just seems like the best thing for kiddos with special food needs. Really excited about this product. Also, I am pretty sure my 4 year old will LOVE this too! :O)

Even though my 20 month old has been on solids for along time and so has my 5 year old(haha!!) they both love to eat fruit pouches for snack time! I would love to be able to put my own together for them!

My 17th month old loves eating from the pouches.. but we get organic and its so darn expensive! would love to make my own and use the yummipouch~


Julie G. said...

My son loved the pouches, they are so expensive. It would be nice to be able to fill them myself with any baby food/ homemade baby food for my daughter.


Cabrina said...

I make my daughters food, but when we are out pouches are just easier. My daughter loves them (finishes them in about 5 seconds and then begs for more), but they are expensive. Reusable ones would make transporting her homemade food easier and would be less expensive than buying pouches.


J said...

My 2 1/2 year old still loves pouches- but they're expensive! These look perfect!


Elaine Bolduc said...

My daughter loves the pouched food, but it can get expensive. I was just thinking today how I wished I could easily make my own. Genius!
