Like all great ideas, this one came from real life and was born out of necessity. My wife and I are the proud parents of two very active boys who love to get into trouble and are constantly hungry! Like many parents, we tried the disposable food pouch brands and were amazed at how well the boys took to them. Even our youngest boy mastered the squeezable food pouches in minutes.
But, reality quickly sat in. My wife became concerned about the the cost and effect all these disposable foil pouches were having on our environment. What’s more, she struggled with the fact that these disposable pouches did not allow her to make homemade organic food purees for her children. A Fresh New Idea was born…
After considerable effort looking in retail stores and online we were unable to find an inexpensive reusable pouch that met our needs. After some careful thought and consideration, we started toying around with product concepts for our reusable baby food pouch that were durable yet inexpensive enough that mom’s would not be extremely putout should the pouch get lost, left behind, or lent to a friend! Shortly thereafter, we launched the GoFreshBaby reusable food pouch brand!
After several rounds of “product testing” by our little ones we quickly realized that shape and design mattered a lot! Infants and toddlers recognized the top spout design and similar shape/size to those disposable foil options and we quickly found that a zip seal closure reduced pressure build up when squeezed.
But we didn’t stop there, we wanted the reusable pouch to be convenient and functional too. The GoFreshBaby reusable food pouch is made of a heavy duty puncture resistant BPA free food grade plastic that is freezable and dishwasher safe.
We also noticed that our little ones accepted a larger variety of food purees if the bag was tinted. The semi-translucent design allowed us to see how much food was left in the bag but disguised the color and consistency of certain food puree blends.
Lastly, we added .oz and .ml measuring lines to the pouch so that we could control the amount of food our boys were consuming and how much was left. This was a big help when we started introducing store bought yogurt and applesauce, etc.
We are happy to share our Fresh New Idea with the world and hope you enjoy the product. GoFreshBaby Reusable Food Pouch -
