The first time I ever saw baby food in lidded pouches instead of jars (yes, I can still remember) I only thought of the positives. I’m ashamed to say, I pretty much turned a blind eye to the negatives. But now you can use food pouches with a clear conscience.
There are two drawbacks to food pouches – price (about half again of jars) and environmental impact. After all, you can recycle jars and tins – not so with pouches. Both of these problems have been solved by the inventors of the Squooshi – a reusable food pouch which will hold all kinds of squishy food.
Squooshies come in two sizes and are washable and refillable, saving you money spent on buying packaged baby food and helping the environment too. They are also freezer-safe, so you can fill them and freeze them straight away, just taking them out when you need them. Of course, they’d work for yoghurt and other squishy foods that older children like too, so they are still useful once you’re out of the baby food stage.
Buy them directly from Squooshi in combo packs of four pouches for US$16.99 plus shipping.
