When my kiddo was a baby we made all of his food. It was cheaper and easier than buying the jarred stuff and he loved it. When he got a bit older, I ended up buying those expensive baby food and apple sauce pouches from the store more times than I would care to admit. My husband and I talked about how we wished they were refillable since it would be so nice to put whatever we wanted into those pouches for kiddo. Heck, I even tried washing one or two out to reuse… it doesn’t work, please don’t try it at home We even considered making our own refillable pouches, but could never figure it out.
A few months ago, I found the Sili Squeeze on Pinterest – http://pinterest.com/pin/85005511686713328/ – it is a reusable, silicone food pouch intended for homemade baby food and smoothies, in addition to ready-made favorites like yogurt and applesauce. Eureka! I was so excited, we found what we had been searching for all of this time!
The awesome people at Sili Squeeze sent me one to try out and I tore open the package as soon as it arrived. After washing it (did I mention it is dishwasher safe?!?) I filled it with apple sauce for kiddo. He tried and tried to get it out, but nothing happened. I was so bummed until I realized that I had been using the squeeze-controlled/spill-proof spout. Duh! I quickly switched it out with the Sili Squeeze with Eeeze spout and it worked like a charm. Kiddo loves eating from his “squeezy thing” and it is the only way I can get him to eat apple sauce or yogurt or basically anything that isn’t fruit snacks and goldfish! They even have a page of healthy recipes for the Sili Squeeze!!!
We have washed it dozens of times and it has always come out of the dishwasher clean and ready to go. I love that I can give it to kiddo in the car or on a walk and that I have control over what he is eating. It is also a bonus that we are saving money and the environment using the Sili Squeeze over those one-time-use store packages.
Kiddo loves the Sili Squeeze and mommy does too!
