I've wanted to try reusable snack bags for months and months! Since we use cloth diapers and I wash that laundry every couple of days anyway, I knew that adding in some food containers would reduce my overall load of dishes to wash and/or the amount of plastic we are recycling - and those are both good things.
So, I was super excited when Yummi Pouch offered to send me a set of reusable bags to try out! Available in a variety of sizes and in many adorable designs, they have something to suit every need.
I received one snack size bag, one sandwich size bag, and one storage size bag. Each bag has a top zipper opening, is lined with a water-resistant interior/exterior, and is backed by a 30-day product guarantee. These bags are BPA-free, phthalate-free, PVC-free, and made of lead-free nylon.
And the best part? They can be washed either in the dishwasher or the washing machine (warm warm is recommended). I have not tried washing in the dishwasher yet, but have easily thrown them in with my other laundry and I love how easy this design detail makes it to keep them clean! One of my biggest fears about using cloth bags for food storage was that crumbs would be trapped in little corners...that is definitely not the case.
The snack-size bag is 4"x7" and is perfect for our everyday on-the-go snacking needs. When we're headed out for a day of errands, I can fill one of these little pouches with cereal, raisins, crackers, grapes, or whatever else my kids are currently willing to eat and have confidence that the mess will be contained in its pouch until it's time to eat the snack.
The 7"x7" sandwich bags are great for snacking, too - especially because I have picky toddlers who don't really eat sandwiches yet. I have really liked using the sandwich bag for Addie - I can put in the same amount of food that I use in a snack-sized bag, but since it is taller, it is less likely that she will spill the contents while eating!
The large Everything Storage bag is 12"x16" and is useful for so many purposes. I have used it to hold dirty cloth diapers, washcloths used while on the go, crayons and coloring pads...really, the ideas are endless! I love using water resistant bags to haul wet swimwear during the summer, too!
