Andy and Katie sent me a 6-pack of their Yummi Pouches to try out and review!
A reusable food container, the new Yummi Pouch is BPA and phthalate free, as well as being freezer and dishwasher safe. They’re also 100% recyclable!
Parents Andy and Katie created Yummi Pouches to help other parents “meet their children’s fundamental need of good nutrition while making the feeding process simple, eco-friendly and cost-effective.”
Each pouch holds 6 oz. of food and is fillable through the top, which seals. Â There’s a little fill line on the back of the pouch, so you don’t have to worry about overfilling. There’s also a place to write in the date and contents.
These work for more than purĂ©es! I’ve used the Yummi Pouch to keep snacks like crackers and dried fruit while on the go. I used a dry erase marker to write the date and contents on the back of a pouch, and it wiped off later fairly easily.
As far as cleaning, I found it works best if you rinse the pouch out as soon as possible after use to facilitate washing. Otherwise, you may have to scrub the inside a little bit with a toothbrush or bottle cleaning brush, depending on the type of food. Another option is to fill it with water and let the water soak any crusties inside. I place the pouch over two prongs on the top dishwasher rack. The prongs are to hold it open during the cycle.
I want to note that after my initial washing, the seal broke on one of the pouches, rendering it unusable. I’ve actually had this happen to me with a different brand of pouch too. I contacted Katie, and she immediately offered to send me a replacement. Yummi Pouch has a 30-day guarantee. For specific guidelines, view theirÂ Return Policy.
These pouches work with our Munchkin pouch spoons, but I noticed the spoons Yummi Pouch sells on their site look wider, which I think may work better for feeding Baby J. You don’t need a spoon with these pouches though. In fact, I prefer not to use them…less clean up.
At $14.99 for a set of 6, the Yummi Pouch is less expensive than other brands. Also sold are dishwasher-safe stickers and labels to decorate and personalize, as well as brushes, drying rack, funnels, and extra caps.
Note: I received a complimentary Yummi Pouch set for review purposes.
