Not Your Kangaroo's Pouch!

I received a set of 6 Reusable Food Pouches from Yummi Pouch #RevelaeKids for a #ProductReview.

I'll be honest, I was not sure if I would like these or if they would even work, but they are pretty cool! These pouches are great for portioning bulk food whether it is for health or diet reasons or to save money by purchasing in bulk. They are also wonderful for sack lunches and snacks on the go. I could easily see these used on road trips to make eating the types of foods that usually require a spoon much easier for those of all ages. And I know as a driver I would appreciate getting food in a nice, simple pouch like this. And don't let me forget to mention these reusable pouches are much more environmentally and economically friendly than the pre filled, one use food pouches.

The plastic that these are made of is quite thin, but that also makes it pliable which is useful for a squeezable food pouch. On the back of the pouch is a fill line which I highly suggest you follow. These pouches can be frozen, but if you over fill and freeze, you'll most likely end up with a busted pouch and a frozen mess to clean up because water expands when it is frozen.

On the back of each pouch is a place where you can write the date and contents of the pouch. Another good though that went into designing this product! This would be a good place to write the name of the person for whom the pouch is meant. Makes it much easier to pass out specific portions to children (or adults) when on a trip or a picnic. I am not sure what type of writing utensil should be used in order for it to be permanent enough to stay until washed in a dishwasher. Maybe the china marker crayon thing that my Dad used to keep in the garage. Its almost like a pencil that has a colored wax "lead". It is made with a rolled paper outside that you can unwrap in a spiral to show more of the lead. I'll have to see if I can find one and use on these.

There is a very sturdy zip closure at the top of the bag. The opening for filling the pouches is almost the same width of the pouch itself. What I really appreciate with this pouch is the base that opens up to make it stand up for filling and for storage.

I received this product at a discount or free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
