G TUBE Feeding Bags Alternative
Sinchies pouches have proven to be the perfect feeding aid for people with various medical conditions. Originally designed to feed babies and small children, Sinchies are now frequently used as an enteral feeding bag to allow people of all ages who have a disability or oral aversion to ingest the nutrients required to keep them alive and healthy.
Professionals such as speech pathologists, dieticians and occupational therapists often recommend our range of reusable pouches as a gravity feeding aid.
Our products can also be used to help people on a blended diet, and are suitable for use with G-tubes as well as Nutricia infinity feeding pumps.
Sinchies and the NDIS
Sinchies is not an official NDIS approved registered provider. However, for self-managed and plan-managed NDIS clients you can purchase Sinchies from our website for your personal use, and then submit your invoice to claim back the cost under the NDIS scheme. For NDIS managed or agency planned participants, we recommend you contact your plan manager to discuss the options. If you have a plan manager and need an invoice - please email us and we will create and send to you.

Medical conditions that can benefit from Sinchies
Sinchies can be been used as a feeding aid to help children and adults with a range of medical issues, including but not limited to:
- special needs
- cleft palate
- CHARGE syndrome
- cerebral palsy
- head and neck cancer
Disabilities and special needs
For people with disabilities and special needs, eating ‘normally’ can be difficult—sometimes even impossible.
Sinchies can simplify the feeding process for people with disabilities and special needs. Our pouches are easy to fill with your own blends and purees, and the contents can then be squeezed out through the nozzle and into the patient’s mouth.
Stroke and Dementia
Stroke victims and those suffering from dementia often have trouble feeding themselves. In some cases after a stroke, people are unable to open their mouth wide enough to fit a spoon in. In situations like this, Sinchies products can make a world of difference. Our products have been used to great success in aged care facilities.

G-tubes, feeding tubes and blended diets
Sinchies products can be used to feed people who need to use G-tubes or feeding tubes. For example, people who suffer from CHARGE syndrome and are on a blended diet.
Our reusable food pouches come in a range of convenient sizes to allow people greater mobility while being fed through a tube. They can even be stored in a small backpack.
Children born with a cleft palate often have difficulty eating and require multiple surgeries up to and beyond 8–12 years of age.
Sinchies reusable food pouches have helped make life easier for people with cleft palate (and those caring for them). For example, parents are able to squeeze puree onto the tip of their child’s tongue and keep food away from any healing wounds.
