Really Little Green Pouch - review/giveaway

No compensation was received for this post. A complimentary sample was provided for the purposes of this review. All images courtesy of Little Green Pouch.

A while back, I shared with you about my experience with a new product, Little Green Pouch. One of the concerns that I had with those pouches was that they were a little bit bigger than felt right for the kids and I found myself filling them part-way. So, when I found out that they had a new product, appropriately named Really Little Green Pouch, I was excited to try them out. The Really Little Green Pouch is a convenient 3.4 oz size, compared to 7 oz for the original.

The smaller pouch offers all of the same features as it's larger version. It is dishwasher and freezer safe. The pouch is marked with a line to show 2 oz fill, as well as the maximum fill at 3.4 oz. The pouch is reusable and has a spot on back for labeling the contents/owner of the pouch.
They are easy to fill with a interlocking zipper bag closure (like on your sandwich bags). They are sold as a 6-pack and can be bought directly from Little Green Pouch or find them on Amazon.

As with the larger pouches, we filled these with an assortment of things. I liked that not only could I choose what to put in them, but also that I had more control over the ingredients and texture (some of the pouch items that I have bought and tried were too smooth, I like a little texture to my nourishment). We used them for smoothies, which we are a big fan of at my house. It is not only a great way to use up the assorted fruit in the house, but you can even sneak in some veggies for more nutrition. I would also use it as a way to pack homemade applesauce (we have been enjoying cranberry apple sauce over the holidays - yum!) and treats like pudding. You can find a great collection of ideas/recipes on Little Green Pouch website.

They are great for packing in lunches and also for packing in the bag on my bike when we head out for family bike rides. Since they are freezable, we could even use them as a small ice pack and ensure the contents were still cold at lunch time.

What would you put in your Really Little Green Pouch?
