Sinchies - Reusable Food Pouches - Review and GIVEAWAY

I was lucky enough to receive a pack of Sinchies resusable food pouches to trial recently and let me tell you, they are fabulous and I wish I had discovered them before purchasing a whole pile of plastic containers.

The Sinchies brand is a local Sunshine Coast business who produce a range of food pouches and associated products, not only super handy for mums but for a range of people and purposes. Not only can they be used for food, you can also use them for travelling by filling with essentials like shampoo, conditioner or body wash. The variety of sizes also will help you comply with flight liquid restrictions.

Handy and easy to use - designed with a ziplock at the top for easy filling and a side spout so you can suck or pour the contents out. Simply mix up your own home-made goodness, healthy snacks, baby food, yoghurt, smoothie or fruit crusher, pour it in and zip it up.Young children can enjoy feeding themselves through the handy spout which allows them to suck or squeeze out their snacks and meals. Older children can participate in the preparation process, learning about healthy foods along the way. Parents can use them for storing dips, soups, spice rubs. These are suitable for all sorts -  store all manner of liquids, soft foods, sauces, salad dressings and even toiletries in Sinchies pouches.Made free from BPA, Phthalates and PVC, these are designed for easy filling and washing, with a double ziplock top to prevent leaks. Sinchies are freezer and dishwasher safe making cleaning and storing easy!
Oh, I forgot to mention ...they are super affordable too and offer great cost-per-use. For example, a pack with 5 x 140ml and 5 x 200ml pouches is only $18.95 - great value for money right there!

Ned loves his greek yoghurt and berries so I added these to a 200ml pouch before heading out earlier this afternoon. I love that they are sized appropriately for babies and at this time, the 200ml is perfect - still small enough for eight month old hands to hold and large enough to provide enough (well too much really) for his ever growing stomach. Ned has mastered sucking through a straw so the pouches are a fabulous way for him to feed himself and gives me time to do things like go to fabulous coffee shops and write blog posts in relative peace. 

To aid in filling the smaller sized pouches you can use a larger pouch and squeeze it in or purchase a funnel from the website. You can also get anti-choke lids for the little ones AND there is also a try before you buy option where you can receive a pouch of your choice (80ml, 140ml, 200ml or 1L) and all you have to do is pay the postage costs (although these don't really need to be tried first - they are fabulous - take my word for it)

What is almost as good as the product itself? The Sinchies website which has a huge amount of information, tips, recipes and FAQs to compliment the product.

Visit the Sinchies website, facebook or instagram accounts for more fun and information. Sinchies food pouches are available on the website and a number of brick-and-mortar stores. Check the list of stockists here.
