Often, we get asked “why reusable baby food pouches?”. The answer is simple, choices!
As the disposable food pouch market continues to explode in the US, more and more companies are jumping on board; from boutique companies like Plum Organics and Ella’s Kitchen to Gerber and Earth’s Best. More than ever, today’s little ones are a pouch generation. Take a stroll down the baby food isle in your local supermarket or Babies “R” Us and you’ll see more baby food pouches than you ever dreamed. Many, of which, are exactly the same! Even store brands now offer discounted food pouch options.
So what’s all the fuss about? We are now busier than ever and being a parent in today’s fast paced society requires some compromise. Our children are now conditioned for immediate gratification and, boy, do disposable food pouches deliver. But at what price?
The average cost of pre-made single use baby food in pouch form is around $1.50 for 3.5 oz. That’s more than double what the same product costs in a jar and astronomically more than buying healthy fruits and vegetables and preparing them at home. It must be convenience…right?
With the GoFreshBaby reusable food pouch parents can take advantage of the convenience food pouches offer while reducing the amount of waste they produce. They also have the ability to feed their little ones healthy nutritious snacks at home or on-the-go without the concern of holding back those expenseive disposable pouches for “special treats”.
A child’s zucchini, banana, and rutabaga puree should not be a special treat because the convenience of serving in a costly one-time-use disposable pouch doesn’t make economical sense for most parents. If you haven’t experienced this yet just wait until you see your little one slurp up 3.5 oz of puree at $1.50 a pop in 30 seconds and still want more!
