As the boys get older I am becoming more and more aware of the amount of waste they create. I am trying to cut down on the amount of waste we as a family create. When Nutri fill-it asked if we would like to try their new reusable smoothie pouch we jumped at the chance!
Nutri fill-it is designed and manufactured by Sarah Kerr. A mum who not only designs her own products but also imports other practical child products. After using other reusable pouches she soon realised not only were the design aimed for young children, but also too small. Nutri fill-it has a 320ml capacity, whereas others are around 100ml.
Nutri fill-it has a double zip lock at the bottom to help keep all liquids contained in the pouch. It also has a screw lid to keep everything air tight. The pouches last roughly 100 uses, after which it can either be recycled or returned for 30% off your next order. The pouches are BPA free, Phthalate free, PVC free and lead free. Which is great! and really reassuring knowing just safe these pouches are for little ones.
We have really given these pouches a real road test. We have taken them with us for days out, walks and general around the house drinking. The colours are green, blue and pink. The boys chose their own colours Jack blue, Oliver pink and Arthur green.
Although the pouches are big, when frozen they can double as an icepack within packed lunches so will help keep everything cool. We used banana milkshake in ours, as well as Strawberry and Banana smoothie (our personal favourite!)
Strawberry and Banana Smoothie
1 x Sliced Banana
8 x Cut strawberries
1 cup of milk,
2 tablespoons of apple juice
and around 6 ice cubes
all in a blender to create a really smooth smoothie 🙂 Store in fridge until you fancy a quick refreshing drink!
What we think!
Overall, we are in love! These have become our go to drink pouches when we leave the house. We prepare the day before and depending on the weather we either freeze or fridge ready for the morning. The boys love using the pouches. They are really simple to clean, you can use a dishwasher (We don’t have one, but the website says you can use the top shelf) We simply open and rinse through with warm soapy running water.
We were sent the pouches in exchange for a review. All opinions are our own.
