Food pouches or “squeezies” have become a lunchbox staple. Most food pouches contain fruit sauces or baby food. Parents love them because they are convenient and kids love them because they are fun and portable. And with their popularity increasing, there are more reusable food pouches available on the market. We love the idea of being able to fill them with healthy fruit sauces and smoothies kids can make at home and later enjoy on the go. Plus who doesn’t love the idea being green and saving money?
We tested Little Green Pouch and instantly became fans of this reusable food pouch founded by two moms. The zipper sealed top made it easy to fill. They are made of durable, BPA-free, PVC-free and phthalate-free plastic. Best of all, they are dishwasher safe, freezable, and of course squeezable. We’ve been filling them with ChopChop’s Best-Ever (You’ll Never Buy Jars – or in this case, food pouches again) Applesauce, and popping them in the freezer. And voila, instant freezer pack for the kids lunch box the next day, and squeezable by lunchtime. For more info and where to buy, check out http://www.littlegreenpouch.com/.
