Sinchies Review and Giveaway
Sinchies are a great product of varying sized plastic reusable pouches that can be used not just for shampoo and conditioner but all sorts of things. Sinchies can be used for the kids' lunch boxes, for picnics, work lunches, baby food etc. Sinchies are freezer and dishwasher friendly making them super versatile.
So how did this idea of reusable pouches come about? Well Sam, worked as a family daycare educator and saw how popular the pouch products are for kids. I know all about this because when my youngest was 12 months I loved purchasing the baby food pouches because I loved not having to worry about glass bottles in my bag, and having to have a spoon as well. I just took the lid off and gently squeezed the food into his mouth, it was even better when he got older and could do it himself. Unfortunately though, I would throw our the pouch and purchase more. Now my kids are older and they always ask for pouch products but 4 kids makes these fairly expensive, especially when they are used once and then thrown away. With Sinchies, you don't throw it out, you can easily clean out each pouch and use it again and again! You can also use your own recipes for your kids which makes it easy for them to eat healthy everyday.
If you love the idea of Sinchies but aren't so good about ideas on what to put in the pouches, Sam has this covered on her website with recipe ideas and you can also follow her on Facebook to discover new ideas or share your own ideas on how you use your Sinchies. Here are some ideas I came up with.
Kids Lunch Box
frozen juice or other drinks - also helps to keep things fresh in the lunch box
Adult Lunch Box
dressing for salad
smoothie - for quick breakfast on the go
porridge - brekkie on the go!
tomato sauce -or any kind of sauce to add to your lunch!
shampoo and conditioner travel packs
breast milk holders - got this idea off Facebook - awesome idea!
soup - get the 1L pouch and freeze for later use.
craft glue - good control for little hands
craft paint - handmade or store bought
* An important tip to remember. Don't fill your Sinchie to full capacity, especially if you wish to freeze your pouch.
