Baby Food Reusable Pouch Reviews – Part Three

This is the final post in the Baby Food Reusable Pouch Review. Here I try to provide you with information regarding each individual pouch. I have tried to provide information that I wanted to know when I was shopping for pouches. In my area the only place to buy these pouches is online & sometimes the online descriptions did not include information about features I wanted to know before purchasing. I have tried to cover all of the features that I felt were important for me to know before purchasing pouches online.

For items such as ease of use I have used a five heart system, where five hearts is outstanding and one heart was barely passable.

Max thickness of puree: Thick

Type of closer: screw top

Additional Notes: Revolutionary screw top made these the best for thick purees! The down side is that you have a little waste in the top, you can scoop this out with a spoon if you want I found it equates to about 4-5 bites. This pouch does not work with any spoon accessories or fit disposable caps but since they have also made the screw top one piece the cap stays attached to the top. Unfortunately, the opening was too small for my one ounce ice cubes so I hand to cut the ice cubes with a hot knife before I could fill it with cubes. Since I usually make extra large amounts of items like sweet potatoes, with are best feed from this pouch I have to make some into ice cubes and this was a minor inconvenience.
