The good people of Little Green Pouch asked if I’d like to try out their great product, and I was glad to do so. You know the disposable food and drink pouches so popular right now? As nice as they are, they aren’t very eco-friendly, considering that you have to throw them away after every use. One kid could easily go through several plastic pouches in a week, and that’s why I love this eco-friendly version! Plus, kids certainly seem to love sipping and slurping from these little pouches, which can be easily filled with a wide variety of nourishing food purees.

Pros:

  • These reusable pouches are made with BPA-free, PVC-free, and phthalate-free plastic, and are surprisingly durable.
  • They can withstand going through the dishwasher.
  • They are freezable, which is perfect for those who want to make large batches of baby/toddler food and have them on hand.
  • They are suitable for use by a wide range of ages.
  • They cut down on unnecessary trash.
  • You can make whatever nutritious food you want to go into the pouch! You will no longer be stuck with whatever food or drink is sold in a pouch. This is great for those with allergies as well.
  • They can save you money, as the disposable pouches can be quite expensive.

Cons:

  • You have to make the food to put into the pouch. While this is an advantage for quality control, you do have to do a little work.
  • You have to spend a little time cleaning out the corners (though this is minimal with a simple cleaning brush).
  • The pouch is still made of plastic. Some may choose glass or stainless steel containers instead.

I’m impressed with this product and am all for anything that cuts down on the plastic we throw away everyday, so I give it a thumbs-up!
