kai carriers pouch pack


Why we love them...

We got our first Kai Carriers when our girls were starting solids. The 140ml pouches are the perfect size for babies and toddlers and are really easy to use. They are perfect for making nutritious meals and then storing/freezing them in ideal serving sizes for at home or on the go. We are still using these pouches several years later (they last so well!) and have also graduated to the 300ml pouches now that our girls are ready for larger portions - smoothies especially. Every few weeks I will spend a morning preparing yoghurts and smoothies, storing them in Kai Carriers and then freezing them so we have ready snacks and lunchbox fillers to hand. Some of our favourite combos are:

- greek yoghurt + pureed fruit + LSA (think mango & pineapple, stewed apple & cinnamon, or blueberry & banana)

- greek yoghurt + frozen berries + LSA

- coconut milk (or your preferred milk) + 1/2 avocado + LSA + your choice of fruit for a delicious smoothie (you can also add kale for an extra nutrition boost)

So simple! These act as perfect lunchbox coolers as well and they are defrosted and ready to eat at lunchtime.



The snack packs are also in constant use - and not just for the kids! I take a ready supply of almonds with me in my handbag, and for the girls we do a nut/dried fruit mix or simply use them as a fruit bag for sliced fruit. As with a lot of kindergartens, and schools, our girls are encouraged to bring a 'litter free lunch'. Kai Carriers have made this SO easy. We pack yoghurts, fruit, crackers and other snacks in Kai Carriers and drastically reduce the amount of waste we would be creating if we bought all of these foods individually wrapped.

My husband gets the most use out of the sandwich bags. Funnily enough, not for sandwiches though! He fills them with salad, or a rice/tuna/hummus kinda mix and takes them for lunch at work when he is in the office. I personally use these bags the most when we are going away...they are so compact so they are perfect for holding smaller items in a suitcase. Think moisturisers & creams, hair ties/clips etc for the girls...any smaller items that you don't want to leak or don't want to lose in your bag!


And best of all the whole range is:

- BPA, PVC and phthalate free
- dishwasher safe
- freezer safe
- microwave safe (ensure pouch is open when heating and always check temperature before serving)
- and reusable!


Kai Carriers are fast becoming a staple in every family's home, and they are literally one of the easiest steps we have taken to reduce our household waste!
