Three years ago I was looking for reusable food pouches online but couldn’t find any so I opted for one time use food pouches instead. They were great as I could still make my own purees, but fairly costly in the longterm. However, I still preferred to make my own purees rather than buying ready made ones off the shelves. I used to call the shop bought food pouches my boy’s fast food on the go. lol ๐Ÿ˜„

When we lived in Zรผrich, Switzerland, (the heart of Europe) we used to travel everywhere by car, feeding a little baby was always a challenge and also meant multiple pit stops. It used to take us hours to reach our final destination! Until I’ve started to use food pouches, we no longer needed to stop to feed our boy as I could just sit next to him and fed him while hubby was driving.

It’s a perfect thing to have with when you’re out with your kids either at play dates, shopping, restaurants, a day at the park or zoo and etc or put one in your kid(s)’s kindergarten / school lunch box (es). No need to find a place to heat up the food.

What I love so much about NomNomKids food pouches is that they come in 2 sizes! I used to wish for a larger pouch and now I have them! ๐Ÿ˜Š

My both boys and myself are completely in love with these NomNomKids food pouches. My little one seems to eat so much better and more with it! ๐Ÿ˜„

Toddler J said “rah rah lion” and his friends when he saw the motives on the food pouches. I thought it was so cute that he still remembers the Cebeebies children program from last year in Zurich. We used to watch it every day and now we don’t have any British channels anymore. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

I have been using these pouches for both toddler J and baby C for a few weeks now and we’re extremely pleased with the quality! With its double zipper side opening I haven’t had any leakage even with smoothies!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Product Review of ChubChub PouchBuddy

Have you heard of PouchBuddy by ChubChub? I have just recently come across it and think that it is a genius invention!

image

Basically, you screw the PouchBuddy on to any food pouches. Whether they are a reusable ones or Ella’s Kitchen, Hipp or other brands off the shelves in the shops. It has been tested and proven to work with all the major leading pouch brands.

My 10 months old boy loves his food pouches! Whenever he sees me preparing one he would get so excited that he would start screaming of excitement to tell me to hurry up! Haha!

This PouchBuddy is a mess saver! Often my boy would squeeze so much puree out that it gets everywhere but with this help he can’t do it anymore! He still hits the food pouch all the time but no more explosion! Yay for mama! ๐Ÿ‘

It is a really cool gadget to have if your baby is a food pouch fan and if you want to avoid major clean up at home or when you are out and about.
