Weaning Babies

The Nom Nom Kids Reusable Pouch is perfect for weaning babies. The pouch is freezer safe so you can make up batches of purees and freeze until you need them. When out and about the pouch can be heated up in a bowl of water quickly.  So much quicker and easier than a jar or tupperware container! (and a lot more fun!). Other mums will be very jealous.

9 month +

From 9 months a baby is dexterous enough to hold the pouch and feed themselves from the spout. It can take a few goes before they get the hang of it and you might get covered in puree a couple of times but they soon get it! Try making a puree or smoothie a little bit thicker if you have a squeezy child that wants to squirt out the contents rather than suck and gradually reduce the thickness as they learn to suck properly. Some babies might prefer you holding the pouch initially until they work out how to control the flow and then they will be happy to take full control.


At this age you certainly won't be using the pouch for meals, it really will be a snack or dessert pouch only. Your toddler can feed easily and free of mess from the pouch. They can be trusted to eat in the car, in the pushchair and sat on the sofa without squirting puree everywhere. If your toddler attends a nursery where you provide their food, the pouch is a fantastic way to send in yogurts and smoothies to ensure that they get a healthy snack or dessert during the day. This is particularly helpful if your toddler is a bit fussy with eating whole fruits.


Generally Pre-Schools operate a packed lunch policy and anything that doesn’t get eaten gets sent home.....that’s including a pot of half consumed yogurt! The Nom Nom Kids Reusable Pouch on the other hand can be re-sealed if it’s only partially consumed and will not leak in your child’s lunch box. You also don’t need to remember to send in a spoon with their yogurt. The pouch is also a great way to give your worn out little one a snack on the way home from a busy day at school. A fruit puree or smoothie is a great way to give them some energy for the walk or scoot home but not fill them up too much before tea.
