My son loves his “sucky packs” squeezable baby food, he has since he was 8 months old. Now he is 2 and he still gets one as a treat almost every day. We save the packages to send to Terracycle. Most people just throw them away and it’s so wasteful, not to mention expensive, especially since my son can suck one of them back in 3 minutes flat.
I was thrilled to hear about Squeeze Please, a Canadian company that makes reusable squeeze pouches that are BPA and PVC free. This solves so much, the cost, the waste, and keeps the convenience of having a pouch to throw in the lunch bag or give to my son while we’re out for a stroller ride.
It’s really easy to use. The pouch is hand or machine washable, the cap is sturdy and tight and there’s a resealable opening at the bottom of the pouch to pour your puree into.
I basically make a thick smoothie and Henrik absolutely loves it! I love that the ingredients are fresh and that I know exactly what’s going into it.
For this Squeeze Please I used:
- leftover oatmeal from breakfast
- organic vanilla yogurt
- organic frozen blueberries
- half a banana
Blend it all together, pour it in the pouch, seal and deliver to an eagerly awaiting mouth.
I have to say that Henrik loves these homemade pouches more than the other ones! This is a Mommy WIN if I do say so myself. If you have a baby or toddler who loves the “sucky packs” this is a must have.
