Can I travel with your pouches?
Our pouches are designed to withstand a normal pressurized airplane environment, and are indeed safe for air travel. In fact, one of the things that our customers love so much about our pouches is that they’re so convenient and easy to travel with! If you’re still concerned, it won’t hurt to put the pouches in a zip-lock bag. The TSA does allow baby food to pass through the security checkpoint, so long as you inform the Transportation Security Officer that you are carrying baby food at the beginning of the screening process. Baby food products may be subjected to additional screening that could include being asked to open the container.
How do I know if I have a defective pouch?
Our pouches have a tamper evident seal that clicks during opening, keeping the product fresh. Our pouch food is cooked, and utilize a specific blend of ingredients and balanced acidity levels to ensure product safety. However, in rare instances a pouch may become compromised. Be sure to always check that the pouch is not leaking or bloated before giving it to a child, as it signifies a quality issue. If you notice that the pouch packaging has been compromised in any way, such as a bloating, or a tear or puncture, we do not advise or recommend that you feed the product to your little one.
How long are products good for after opening?
For optimal quality and freshness, we do recommend that you refrigerate any open pouch that’s not yet empty, and consume the contents within 24 hours.
How should I serve and store the baby food pouches?
Plum® baby food pouches can be served at room temperature, slightly chilled, or warmed in a bowl of hot water. DO NOT microwave pouch. To serve, simply twist off the cap and let your little one feed directly from the spout, or squeeze into a bowl or onto a spoon for your little one to enjoy! The pouches can be stored in your cupboard until ready for use. Refrigeration is required upon opening and we recommend the meal should be consumed within 24 hours for best quality and taste.
What is the pouch made of?
Our pouches are made from safe materials. They are a mix of 100% BPA & phthalate free plastic and foil - a special blend that helps to naturally preserve the nutrients and retain the vibrant color & taste. The inner lining is made from a food grade polyethylene.
