My son just turned 4, and like many moms with busy kiddos, I like to have easy snacks on hand. Ones that he can grab at home and ones I can grab if we are going to be out and about.
We buy the disposable pounds of applesauce because it’s all of the above and is a snack I don’t feel bad letting him have! But the problem is, these pouches are expensive and they produce a lot of waste. I’ve been thinking about purchasing some reusable ones but didn’t really want to fork out the money for something I wasn’t sure would work and would still be easy!
Thankfully, I was recently sent some of these adorable Cutielunch Reusable Squeeze Pouches for free in order to test them out and give my honest opinion.
Right out of the packaging I thought they were super cute! My son was there when I opened them and the cute pictures caught his attention too!
You can basically pop anything squeezable in these…applesauce, yogurt, etc…if it’s edible and squeezable, spoon it in! Lol
To fill them up, you just pop open the bottom, which has a double layer of closures to ensure nothing will leak out.
I’m sure there are other ways to fill (funnel?) but I just took a spoon and popped it in there.
The first time I filled one, I filled it wayyyy to far and had to scoop a bunch back out. After that I made sure to pay a little more attention and found that I easily got about 8 heaping spoonfuls in there. You could probably fit more, but I thought that was a decent amount for a little belly.
I filled up the 4 pouches that come in the order (4 for 10.99 on Amazon) and popped them in the fridge. It took me maybe 5 minutes to get them all filled! So easy!
The only thing I thought was a little weird is the tops. You screw them on and the first time you unscrew them they “break” like you just bought them at a store. They’re still perfectly usable, I would just think that there could be a different way to make them since they’re reusable. But that’s certainly not a deal breaker for me and I’ll for sure be wanting at least one other set of these!! No more buying applesauce pouches!!!
