Brilliant Baby Food, a review of Cutielunch Reusable Squeeze Pouch
Reusable Pouches might just be my new favorite thing!
Just starting with the legal bit: I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review, all opinions are my own.
Now for the fun part! Ever thought to yourself it's so expensive to buy those baby food pouches at the store? And then, your baby turns into a toddler and wants the "fun" ones with the pudding which cost an extra dollar... well, solution found! Cutielunch Reusable Squeeze Pouch to the rescue!
I always wanted to make my own baby food, but since we always qualified for WIC we got tons of baby food jars from them. I am very blessed to have received all this free baby food, trust me. I always cry when the kids move up to "real" food! It is great at home, but when we have to go anywhere it is such a mess taking the little container and trying to use a spoon with a wiggly kid. Besides, I ALWAYS manage to spill on myself opening the foil top.. seriously, how hard does that have to be.
So, reusable pouches have been on my mind for quite a while. They always scared me a little bit. When I had the opportunity to review these and receive a set for free I jumped at the chance. I wasn't going to spend hard earned money on something I just wasn't sure would work. Boy, was I wrong.
Second, YOU DON'T THROW THEM AWAY WHEN YOU ARE DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is a huge issue, the pre-filled pouches at the grocery store get tossed when you are done. Hello, landfill. These are sturdy, and meant to be used over and over again. I love that they are reusable, I will be saving so much more money than buying pouches at the grocery store every week. Even if I still bought baby food at the store the savings just keep going up. The little glass jars are always cheaper than the new plastic ones, and can be used for neat projects afterwards. Or, instead of buying 15 little plastic boxes of apples I can buy the big applesauce in the fruit section and save cost and trash. Huge win. Want to have Apple/Squash mix? They don't sell that... you can just grab two single flavors, throw them in a pouch (I added cinnamon to mine) mix and eat! So awesome..
Reusable Baby Food Pouch (4-pack) for Homemade Baby Food. Squeeze Pouch Is Great As a Food Container and for Food Storage.
