I was recently contacted by a fun company called Squooshi, who make reusable food pouches for kids. I don’t always agree to all product reviews and/or giveaways that come my way, as not all are a great fit for me, you the readers or my blog demographic. These pouches are a great fit on all accounts and fill a need that I haven’t seen addressed before.
We are a busy, busy family (aren’t we all?) with two toddler boys and it seems like we are on the go every day. I can’t count how many times I have had to pack lunch for the boys to eat in the car, at the park, at the store. On occasion, I will pick up a box of fruit pouches for emergency last-minute snacks, as they require minimal prep and are virtually no-mess. However, they can get spendy. The best price I have ever found is about $.50 per pouch, which can really add up, not to mention the waste they create.
Squooshi pouches are fun, refillable, more cost effective than single use food pouches, and reduce waste going into landfills. Squooshis are also easy to re-fill and clean, come in two handy sizes, and are BPA, Lead, PVC, and Phthalate Free, with a choke proof cap, and extra sturdy zip lock seal.
We received the Squooshi Variety Pack and immediately got to work. I filled the larger 4.5-ounce pouches with one of our random smoothie concoctions (this one was strawberries, fresh spinach, frozen pineapple core and banana).
The pouches were super simple to fill. They have a heavy zip lock closure on the bottom and we just used a spoon to fill ours. Our smoothies were perfect consistency, thin enough to easily squeeze out but thick enough that they didn’t run right out. I had to play around with how much we put in our pouches, but quickly figured out the right amount so they would still close. The zip lock is really sturdy and holds everything in, even with strong little hands going to town.
As for me?
I LOVE that these are so darn sturdy. They can be easily filled ahead of time and kept in the fridge for on-the-go snacks or for school lunches. They are dishwasher safe, but I chose to hand wash mine instead and they were super easy to clean.
The best part about these pouches is the price. You can snag a 4-pack of the large pouches for just $19.99 or $4.99 each. If you consider a really good price on reusable food pouches is about $.50 (most are even more), these will pay themselves off in just 10 uses per pouch. Ten! Plus, there is far less waste and you know exactly what is going in your kids’ bellies.
