When Finn was a baby I decided I would try my hand at making his food. I quickly realized two things. One, it is not difficult. (But…) Two, it takes some significant time.
I was fortunate to receive a Babycook from some of Justin’s family after Finn was born. I used the HECK out of that guy for Finn and pulled it out of the closet a few months ago to start making Evie’s food.
Around that same time I heard about a new product hitting the market: the Little Green Pouch. The Little Green Pouch is a reusable food pouch that I now use with Evie when we are on the go. Forget the tupperware and spoons, these are awesome! (Full disclosure: I am not getting paid to write this post. I just truly love this product.)
Thanks to a little zipper on top, the Little Green Pouch is refillable/reusable, dishwasher-safe and freezer-safe. Plus, it is BPA-free. The pouches have markings on the back for the amount of food you are adding. Two of the freezable food rounds (thawed) I make for Evie fit in the pouch with room for more. I suspect I could put 3 in when the time comes.
Currently, when we are on the go I pack 2 LGP’s for her lunch or dinner. Here we have a pea/squash mixture in one and carrots in the other. She’s a big veggie fan 🙂
You can use a spoon, but I feed Evie straight from the pouch. She actually eats better and more when it’s from the pouch as opposed to with a spoon at home.
Every Saturday night you can find Evie chowing down on her veggies in church, which includes her chomping through Finn’s Christmas program a few weeks ago. She must have spotted the big lug sitting down!
I even fed Evie from LGP’s in the car on the two-hour drive home Christmas Eve night. These things have been a life saver for us!
When she is done, I rinse the pouch as best I can and throw it in the dishwasher upside down. Easy-peasy.
My point? If you’re a baby food maker or simply have older kids you’d like to pack applesauce for and don’t want to spend double the price on the pouches instead the jar, do yourself a favor and buy the reusable Little Green Pouch… and tell them My Wise Mom sent you!
