Yummi Pouch: Review and Giveaway!

I've talked before about how hard it is to get Grace to eat her veggies right now. Her favorite way to eat them is out of the expensive pouches you can buy, she'll eat anything in a pouch without hesitation. But those pouches cost a dollar or two a piece so we can really only afford to buy them every once and a while. I began to research an alternative to the pricey pre made pouches and was happy to find an amazing product called the Yummi Pouch!

Yummi Pouch is a product encouraging families with young children to bring healthy snacks with them wherever they go. Our reusable squeeze pouches provide a way for kids to eat on-the-go without the mess of using a spoon. They are dishwasher friendly, freezer friendly, BPA-free, and phthalate-free.


I received a set of 6 pouches to try and decided to make a puree to fill them. I pureed steamed broccoli, applesauce and a little bit of lemon juice in the food processor and then used a spoon to put it in the pouches. I made a bit of a mess trying to get it in, so I learned to use a funnel or Yummi Pouch's filling funnel pitcher the next time. The pouch is nice and sturdy and stands up by itself in the fridge or freezer. I was worried that they might leak, but I have put them in the diaper bag several times and have not had a single leak. The zip close top stayed sealed and the cap screws on tightly.


Grace took right to this pouch and loves eating out of it. Unfortunately, she hates the camera and wouldn't let me get a decent picture, but trust me, your toddler will love it! They make great easy snacks when we are out doing errands and I know they will be great this summer when we are at the zoo or the pool. I will also be able to use them to easily store and transport Connor's homemade baby food.

My favorite feature of the Yummi Pouch is that it is dishwasher safe! I ran them through the dishwasher with no problems. I'm going to try to make smoothies for my next set of pouches. Check out Yummi Pouch's website for some great recipes!

A set of 6 pouches is $14.99. So much more affordable and better for the environment than the store bought pouches!
