We recently received this email from one of our beta testers and just had to share! Plus, her son is adorable!!
Despite our best efforts, our 2 1/2 year old son, Nicholas, just doesn't love eating his veggies. So we started making smoothies for him that are loaded with veggies and fruit, and we like to mix in some flax seed oil or coconut oil. It worked wonders for a while, until he decided that smoothies didn't belong in his straw cups and drinking them out of regular glasses at home took so long that he'd just eventually lose interest. Enter the little green pouch, and our nutritious smoothies have survived an almost inevitable demise! He now loves to have his smoothies out of his little green pouch, and I can take them along in the stroller for a great snack on the go. We are huge fans!
I know we’ve said it before – our group of beta testers is closed. But if you turned Felica (of Battle Creek, MI) down, well, then you really wouldn’t have a heart.
Felicia wrote to us and said, “we DESPERATELY need this kind of pouch for my 10 month old baby since now she refused to be spoon fed and she wants to do it herself (of course while it's fun, it's so messy). She loves those pouches and she can use it and suck it herself.” “I even cut out the [disposable food] pouch so I can fill it with my own veggie/fruit blends, then I tape it (I know, pretty sad, but it works).”
After hearing Felica’s moving story, and seeing her evocative pictures, we were feeling very sorry for her. Yet were still on the fence. Could we really hand over our very last sample? But when Felicia topped her plea off with a “Pretty please?” it sealed the deal. She was in.
When we told Felicia we’d give her our very last sample that we were saving for historical and sentimental purposes, and we saw her reaction, we knew that we had made the right decision. First, when we told her we’d send her a pouch if she agreed to provide feedback she said, “Of course, YES!!! I mean, yes, if you can find one :) I will understand if you cannot find one, (even though I will be really sad) . . . .” Second, she told us that she had even made one of our recipes. And third, if it wasn’t clear enough that Felicia was serious, she told us that she had been forced to put her lovely Simply Stone Fruit puree “into the used cut out pouch and tape it shut. *sigh*.” You’ve seen the pictures. We could suffer poor Felicia’s pain no longer.
Here is Felicia’s child, sweet Rania, slurping Bananameal (thanks for the great recipe Felicia!) from what she calls her “tricked out pouch.” We can’t wait to see her with our reusable food pouch – no tricks needed:
Although she is a toddler, little Genevieve here wants to remind everyone that the Little Green Pouch is indeed a reusable baby food pouch. She has promised that not only she, but also her baby, will provide invaluable feedback about their experience sipping a “McFatty” Non-Dairy Smoothie out of our reusable squeeze pouch.
Hopefully baby will get to go for a nice, cool swim after she finishes her snack. She looks like she might be a little warm in that outfit.
Several weeks ago, we determined that our group of beta testers was definitively closed. But then we received this message from a mom interested in our reusable baby food pouch:
I need a Little Green Pouch for this new chocolate pudding recipe I found on the Whole Foods website.
This is what my 20 month old looks like without it:
How could we possibly say no? So we made an exception, and opened up the group of beta testers to include one more. We hope that our reusable food pouch does the trick for this little one. We have our “before” picture, and are eagerly awaiting the “after”!
Thanks to Melissa Blount of Mount Dora, FL for sharing these hilarious photos.
Yesterday one of our beta testers sent in this adorable video of her 12 month old (I know, I know, why do we mother's insist on counting months - she's a year old!) independently sucking down her applesauce (which her mom called "the perfect 2nd child food" :)... Hope you enjoy the video as much as we did!
Thanks to Sarah's mom, Stephanie of Seattle, WA for capturing this adorable moment and sending it to us!
