Review: Nom Nom Kids weaning pouches

On average every week I buy 10 jars, 10 fruity pouches, pack of 4 fruit pots and a box of porridge. Buying baby food can be quite expensive, so to cut the costs down and to introduce more homemade food, I decided to do my own fruit pouches. 
I came across Nom Nom Kids reusable pouches and when Suzanne-the founder offered me to review the starter set (£20) I jumped at a chance.

Nom Nom Kids reusable pouches for weaning babies & kids on the go. Fill them with home made or bought purees, smoothies, yogurts & baby food and enjoy time and again. Simply fill the pouch, eat and then clean before reusing them. For kids of all ages, from weaning babies to school children. The Nom Nom Kids Pouch has a fun design to encourage kids to eat from them. They are Freezer safe, Dishwasher safe and BPA free.

Nom Nom kids weaning kit includes:
10 reusable pouches
15 caps
non-permanent pen
recipe card

Before using the kit for the first time I have washed pouches in the warm water. 

To fill the pouch:
- Blow into the spout to fully open the pouch, put the cap on
- Pull the side tabs apart
- Hold the pouch or put it on a side and fill it as far as the top of the window on the back of the pouch (each pouch holds 130ml/4.5oz)
- Seal the zip lock
- Write on the back of the pouch with a non-permanent pen
- Freeze or keep in the fridge for up to 2-3 days
I have cooked few fruity purees which were handy when we were out and about in Pembrokeshire. As L is a fussy eater it will take a while for her to adjust to my home cooking but at least I try!

The pouches have proved to be easy to clean and durable. You can buy a plastic spoon which can fit on the spout but I just let L do the job and squeeze the contents in the mouth. 

If you don't know where to start Nom Nom Kids website has some handy recipes which were tried and tested on Suzanne's little ones!

Disclaimer: I was sent the above kit for the purpose of this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


  1. Thanks for this review. I'll definitely get some of these now. It's good to see how to use them.

  2. These sound great! What a great idea.

  3. I am a big fan of Nom Nom pouches, we used them a lot when we were weaning Max. Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

  4. These look cool! We did BLW but I've recently discovered (after she stole another baby's!) that my 1 year old loves fruit pouches. I'd consider using these to put fruit puree in for on the go.
