Munchkin Meals: Two Toddlers{& Little Green Pouch Giveaway}



Time for another Munchkin Meals thanks to Brittany over at A Healthy Slice of Life! On the first Thursday of every month she hosts a Munchkin Meals Link-Up Party- which enables me to look through tons of great meal ideas to change things up with my two toddlers.  We do have to be mindful with what foods we give our two little ones because Big Brother has a tremendous amount of food allergies. He goes into anaphylatic shock with gluten, arrowroot, peanuts/nuts, baker’s yeast, oats and immediately throws up if he consumes any amount of egg or apple.  Other allergies that we avoid in our house entirely: peas, tomatoes, beef, carrots, soy, codfish, crab, shrimp, and oranges.  We are thankful that there are a lot of people in our lives that take the time to find special treats or recipes that work for our family.

A couple times a week we treat our little ones with a little frozen yogurt. Priceless. 


Our family has used the original set of Little Green Pouches daily for over a year.  They are DURABLE & TODDLER APPROVED.  They are easy to use, fill, and wash in the dishwasher.  As many parents know, the pouches available at the store cost a pretty penny with how much your little one eats.  Simple answer is making a large batch of pureed food and just fill the pouches up.  The pouches fit in our side-drawer of the fridge. Both of my little ones started being able to hold their own successfully around nine months old.  Until then the pouches were so much easier to use when we were out and about- no mess and no spoons.

When Little Green Pouch contacted me about their new FAA Compliant Pouch Set I was over-the-moon excited! I love that we will be able to use these when we travel!  Plus, another six of these bad boys have already come in hand with two hungry toddlers.



Reusable Food Pouch Features:

FILL-ABLE
Strong, Leak-proof zip seal at the top, so the pouch can be opened & filled with up to 3.4 ounces(the perfect size to bring on the airplane!) of your favorite pureed foods.  Blow into spout to expand it to its full supple shape!

REUSE-ABLE
Our eco-friendly food pouches are made from durable BPA, PVC, Lead and Phalatefree Plastic. They are built to withstand those beatings that only young children can give & (after cleaning) take some more.

DISHWASHER-ABLE
The pouches are top-shelf dishwasher safe! For best results, rise all the homemade spinach surprise out of the pouch and spout before running the cycle.

FREEZER-ABLE
Fill up a bunch of pouches with your homemade or store bought purees and pop them in the freezer.  You can defrost them in warm water when you are ready to enjoy.  Or, pack them in your lunch in the morning-they’ll be ready for squeezing by the afternoon.

SQUEEZE-ABLE
The size and suppleness of our reusable baby food pouches makes it great for use by those darling little hands.



Toddler Approved
