“If someone made reusable squeezie yogurt containers, they’d be rich.” I told Aaron one day. Seriously. Every time we go to the shops, my kids want squeezie yogurt. They won’t eat yogurt at all unless it’s out of a squeezie pack. Unfortunately, the squeezie packs are more expensive, and contain more sugar than I’d like them to.
The very next day, I got an email wanting to know if I’d review a Yummi Pouch. Yes, someone actually did come up with a reusable squeezie yogurt pouch. Or pureed fruit pouch. Or baby food. Or whatever you want to stick in there that is small enough to come out of the hole. Ingenious.
As if I was going to say no. A reusable pouch meant that I could make my own yogurt, sans all the sugar, and stick that in the pouch for the kids.
I made the yogurt in my $12 yogurt maker from Aldi, and then set about sticking the yogurt into the pouch. Humph. That part was actually quite tricky. I got a small spoon, and spoon ful by messy spoon ful, filled the pouch with the yogurt. It would have been much easier with the special pouring into pouch jug they sell on their website.
The kids enjoyed slurping from their Yummi Pouches, and ate all of the home made yogurt within them.
The next time didn’t go so well. ”I don’t like this yogurt Mommy.” Hannah told me. Sigh. It wasn’t so much a reflection on the Yummi Pouch, but my home made yogurt. Sigh. That’s what I get for trying to feed her greek yogurt instead of fruity yogurt. Next time I will add some pureed fruit so it passes the taste test of a 3 year old.
I used to buy those squeezie packs of baby food to take when we went out anywhere when Daniel was little. But again, they were comparatively expensive (just very convenient ). Yummi Pouches would have been great for when Daniel was a baby.
