We have stressed to our girls since as far back as they can remember the importance of being kind to our planet and taking measures to be green as much as possible.  For us, one of those things is using reusable lunch bags and reusable food pouches for snacks and sometimes, drinks.  We recently received an assortment of reusable food pouches from Yummi Pouch in exchange for my opinion.

What did I think of the Yummi Pouch reusable food pouches?

As a mom who tries very hard to feed her kids wholesome and organic snacks and meals, I am also equally concerned with being green and employing eco-friendly practices in our daily habits, but struggle at times with our school lunches.  It seems that lunchtime has become so short that I need to pack things the girls can eat very quickly – but most of those foods are chock-full of chemicals or are in so much wasteful packaging, I just cannot bring myself to do it.  The Yummi Pouch reusable food pouches are a great way to deal with that dilemma!  Available in an assortment of sizes and patterns, you are sure to find a reusable food pouch that will fit your needs.  Hubby quickly snagged the sport pouches as he had been looking for an easy way to transport and consume smoothies while biking.  Why would you drink a smoothie while biking you ask?  Well, when you are riding in a 75-mile charity ride, you tend to burn a lot of calories and we can jam a lot of nutrients into a smoothie.  Before he would have to stop for a power snack and lose position in the ride.  Now with the Yummi Pouch reusable food pouch, he can reach back into his backpack to pull one of these out and enjoy the smoothie while riding with just one hand!

My favorite reusable food pouch from Yummi Pouch is the 2.5-ounce top loading pouch.  These are great for making your own applesauce squeeze packs.  Since these pouches are freezer safe, you can fill them all on Sunday, throw them in the freezer and pack one each morning – by time lunch rolls around, the pouch will be thawed and the kiddos can enjoy a chilled applesauce pack!

Our girls have been digging the 6-ounce side loading pouch.  These reusable food pouches are great for taking drinks on the go in the car!  I can load them up, throw them in my purse before I pick up the girls and have a drink ready for them without having something to throw away in the end!

The Verdict

Yummi Pouch resuable food pouches are a quick and easy way to add another eco-friendly element to your life.  They are dishwasher safe and easy to fill.  I have gotten into the habit of filling them on the weekends so that we have snacks ready to go all week long!  Learn more about the reusable food pouches and other green food container items available at Yummi Pouch by following them on Facebook and Twitter!
