Did you think feeding from Little Green Pouch couldn't get any easier? So did we until we met the folks at PouchPop. We are so excited to team up with PouchPop to bring you yet another way to enjoy your Little Green Pouch and make the transition from bottle to self-feeding easy and intuitive for your little ones. Our kids LOVE using PouchPop and other parents are singing the PouchPops's praises on Amazon, too.
"Love this product! My daughter was having trouble eating the pouch foods because she couldn't figure out what to do with it and would squeeze the food out and make a mess. When I put the PouchPop on she immediately knew to suck the food out as if it were a bottle. Now she is a pro and with the help of PouchPop she can enjoy the pouched foods. Great product!" - Kasia
"I have not seen any other product for pouches to be more advanced and helpful in the journey to help your little one become an independent eater. I have given these PouchPop toppers to parents and parents-to-be which is the highest recommendation I could ever give." - Trent W.
"Great idea, easy to use and dishwasher safe. I like the PouchPop so much that I am giving these as baby shower gifts to all my pregnant friends!"
So, what is PouchPop? PouchPop was meticulously designed by a father of 3, to be a hospital-grade silicone barrier between the hard plastic pouch spout and your baby's (possibly teething!) mouth and gums. The silicone PouchPop extends the length of the spout by more than 1", acting almost like a mini straw that babies love to chew and suck from. Engineered with the highest quality materials and input from from pediatricians, this little product is a lot smarter than it looks! Get yours here.

Earth Day is coming up on Monday, April 22nd and we wanted to share some tips on easy things you can do to make your everyday life a little greener. We are committed to doing our part to protect our environment for future generations, and every little bit helps. This Earth Day make the choice to add one or two new green acts to your daily routine.
AROUND THE HOUSE
See The Light
Installing a compact fluorescent bulb (CFL) is the quickest and easiest way to save energy. CFLs convert most of the energy they use into light rather than heat, making them more energy efficient. Bonus: They consume about 75 percent less electricity and last up to 10 times longer, saving you money!
Any electronics with LED (light emitting diode) that glows even after you turn it off continues to draw power (that you pay for). Unplug your TV, cell phone charger, and printer from wall sockets and plug them into power strips instead. When you leave a room, flip the strip switch to cut the flow of electricity.
IN THE KITCHEN
Did you know that typical grocery store produce travels nearly 1,500 miles before it ends up on your plate? That means added pollution, not to mention food that isn't very fresh. Shop at your local farmers market, join a CSA, and request that your local grocery store carries more local foods. Remember, vote with your fork! Buying from local farmers means you're not only getting the freshest food possible, you're saving energy.
Make Convenience Food Eco-Friendly
As parents, we appreciate convenience, and the market for convenience food aimed at parents of little ones is vast. We've all seen the aisles full of disposable food pouches. Before we created Little Green Pouch, those pouches were often the only thing that got Maggie through a trip to the grocery store with her two boys. But the waste is just mind-boggling.
This Earth Day we challenge you to make the switch to creating your own convenience food. With a little planning and prep, you can have healthy on-the-go snacks at your finger tips without the waste of other store-bought snack. Bonus: you will also know exactly what you are feeding your little ones. Buy fruit, veggies, grains, yogurt and other favorite foods in bulk. Check out our recipes for some of our favorites. Fill your Little Green Pouch with the cooked and pureed yumminess of your choice, label and pop in the freezer. When you need a convenient snack, throw a pouch in your bag and you are ready to go!

To make going green in the kitchen even easier, we are giving away a Little Green Pouch Starter Kit! Enter below by 11:59 p.m. PST Monday April 22nd for a chance to win:

Dissolvable Content & Dat Labels
Maggie and Melissa knew from the very beginning that Little Green Pouch would be a perfect fit for Nugget. So you can imagine their excitement when Nugget agreed! Earlier this month the first pouches made their way to the shelves of the nine Nugget Markets around northern California. You can find Little Green Pouch on the shelves of Nugget Markets in Woodland, Davis, Sacramento, West Sacramento, Roseville, Elk Grove, El Dorado Hills, and Vacaville. For address and contact information, click here or visit our find a store near you page.
If you live in the area, we hope you will stop in to Nugget to pick up some pouches and to support this wonderful company. Growing up, Maggie and Melissa never would have imagined that a product they invented would be found on Nugget's shelves. It has truly come full-circle, and they couldn't be more thrilled.
Wall Street Journal
We were thrilled to be featured in the Wall Street Journal a couple weeks ago. The focus of the article was around the use of food pouches for adults and why adults would use a food pouch, if ever.
We Asked, You Answered
Before the article in the Wall Street Journal, we already knew that you wanted larger pouches. We asked our Facebook fans:
"What size do you think the Big Green Pouch should be? How many ounces should it hold?"
We got so much great feedback, and are currently working on designs and prototypes of a 12 oz. Big Green Pouch. Stay tuned for more details! And don't worry, as Melissa mentioned in the WSJ article, we know it is important the pouches still fit in a cup holder.
