Review: Little Green Pouch

I’ve decided to do more product reviews of things I have around the house, things that we use regularly. My goal is to give more moms like myself some opinions and reviews to go on for regular household and family items.

My son is about 7.5 months old now and has been eating solids since 6 months. The Little Green Pouch is a patent-pending reusable food pouch that I use to transport and store Baby J’s food.

The Little Green Pouch is BPA and phthalate free, so it’s safe for the little ones. It’s also dishwasher and freezer safe. Before washing, I rinse all the baby food out, and then place the pouch over a prong in the top shelf of the dishwasher. The prong ensures it stays open to be cleaned.

To fill with food, just open the top seal, spoon in the food, and reseal it afterwards. It has 2, 4, and 6 oz. marked on the back, so you know how much food your putting in. The first time I filled it, I made a bit of a mess with the spoon, since the opening isn’t real wide. I was more careful subsequent times, and there was less mess. They do sell collapsible funnels to go with the pouches, which will probably really help avoid messes.

Besides the funnel, another accessory worth considering is the Boon dispensing spoon, since the pouch is compatible with it.

One thing I don’t like about the pouch is the ridges around the dispenser. I’m assuming they’re necessary to use with the spoon, but the food gets stuck in it. This is a little annoying when I’m putting it back into the diaper bag. I sometimes rinse the food off, but I don’t always have a water source to do so. If I wipe it with a napkin or burp cloth, it doesn’t quite come clean.

The design of the pouch is quite thin, so little hands can hold it, but this also means it won’t stand upright, like a Capri Sun pouch.

Overall, it does the job, and I like it (not quite love). I would buy more.

Do you own a Little Green Pouch? Like it, love it, hate it?

Note: I purchased the above items for personal use. I was not compensated for this post.

  1. Hi Elisebet,

    This is Amanda from Little Green Pouch. Thank you so much for your review and feedback on our product! We love hearing from our customers. We are glad you are enjoying the pouches, and I wanted to reach out and see if I could help.

    In order to get the pouches to stand up, it helps to make sure they are fully expanded. We have a video that outlines the steps, and you can also see an illustration on our FAQs page. Here is a link to the video:
