Make the Switch to a Reusable Squeeze Pouch

Reusable Squeeze Pouch

We are big fans of the applesauce squeeze pouches.  They are awesome for travel, church and the playground.  However, I’m not a big fan of the waste they create, and also the price tag.  So I asked around and discovered a reusable squeeze pouch.  My friend Amanda at The LittleLilyPad said her friend tested out five different options and this was the best one, the BEABA Babypote.

I don’t understand the name, but I do know that it works.  It’s easy to fill, easy to clean and both kids can work it.  For the little guy, I do have to help him get the last bit out, but that is no different from the applesauce squeezes sold in the store.  Plus, I discovered my choice in apple squeeze pouches  got a C+ rating from Fooducate. (an awesome iPhone app if you are interested) Turns out there is a lot of hidden sugar in each pouch.

I have only put in my homemade applesauce recipe, but I expect it would work great for traveling with your own homemade baby food.  I plan to make some mixes with fresh summer fruits, like banana blueberry or a raspberry apple blend.

Happy travels!

  1. So glad they are working out! I have frozen mine on occasion so they stay cool and thaw for later in the day and that works well too! I still need to order a couple more!!

  2. Thanks for this recommendation. My son loves to eat the Happybaby mango baby food squeeze pouches, but this would be a great alternative that would us save money and reduce waste. Plus, I'm not sure how much longer he'll want to walk around sucking up baby food.

  3. Love this recommendation! My kids love the squeeze applesauces but I too hate the price and waste. And the nutritional content!! Once again you've come through with an awesome solution – thanks!

  4. Hey, I just downloaded the Fooducate app…thanks for the rec!

  5. Believe it or not, I'd never heard of apple sauce pouches. Thanks for the tip!

  6. Where did you buy the Babypote?

  7. Maybe the name is supposed to make you think compote? You make homemade baby food in a similar way.

  8. Oh, cool! I've not seen those before.

  9. Thank you so much for this post! My toddler has sensory issues that sometimes have him accepting hardly any food other than what we call "slurpie pouches". He's 2 1/2 and very large for his age to boot so he can down quite a few of these in a day and the expense is killing us. I can make purees at home no problem but for some reason it is this delivery system that works for him when his sensory issues flair up. It is also a great way to get veggies into him by making combo purees. I'll be ordering some of these right away!

  10. Hi Emily! I love this! So eco friendly and easy to use!

    I also added it to the Tuesday Baby Link Up pinterest board as my feature for the week!

    Thanks for linking up! I hope you'll come back tomorrow, too!
