Starting solids is a pinnacle turning point as it’s one of the first big milestones we face as parents. As a mom who exclusively breastfeeds, I’m no longer the sole source of nutrition in my child’s life. Now I’m faced with trusting other companies in what my child is consuming. I try to buy the best, all-natural options when I can, but there’s something about a laundry list of ingredients on the back of the package that’s advertised to be purely apples and bananas is something I just can’t shake.
Eating wholesome foods at home is easy, but ensuring good nutrition on the go can prove to be more difficult. Lucky for us we have GoFreshBaby pouches! Reusable pouches that minimize stress and mess, making snack time a lot more enjoyable.
The GoFreshBaby pouch is made of heavy duty puncture resistant Phylate/BPA free food grade plastic with a double zip seal and a top spout design. I have to say that I had a little bit of difficulty opening the seal at first, but I happen to like that I had a hard time getting into it because that means food will have a hard time getting out, so your little Picasso stands no chance on breaking in and creating a mess. And the pouch is transparent with clearly marked indicators measuring up to 5 ounces, making it super easy to keep track of how much is being consumed.
Filling the pouch can be done two ways: spooning in or with a funnel. I happen to be funnel-less but would choose that method over using a spoon. It can get a little messy using a spoon if you aren’t careful, but it really isn’t a problem because once you seal the pouch closed you can run it under some water to clean it off. Speaking of cleaning – washing pouches is easy. They’re dishwasher safe (woohoo!), and handwashing with a bottle brush is just as simple. The curved seal at the bottom of the pouch ensures there aren’t any nooks and crannies for food to hide.
GoFreshBaby pouches make eating homemade foods on the go easier than ever. These little guys can be stored in the freezer and taken out for snacks on the run. Lay the pouch flat for freezing, and then set upright to save on space. They’ve even thoughtfully added a place to write a name, the date, and contents for easy organization and rotation! You cannot go wrong with these, and at $9.99 for a pack of 3, a stock of these in the kitchen is a no-brainer (and they have replacement tops!).
