Food pouches are becoming increasingly popular as they are extremely convenient, but I am not a big fan. On the two occasions I gave a pouch to my littlest, I had a huge mess to clean up afterwards. She was more interested in watching the applesauce squirt all over than actually eating it. The fact that you can’t actually see the food inside also throws me off. I don’t know about you, but I like to see exactly what I am eating. When I heard about Squeasy Gear Squeasy Snackers, I was eager to give them a try. You fill it with your own food and it is leak-free which eliminates my two major issues with pouches.
The Wilson family created the Squeasy Snacker in 2011 after becoming frustrated with the cost of disposable food pouches and the amount of materials being wasted. They knew there had to be a reusable food pouch that they could fill with smoothies and purees to give to their children. Unable to find what they were looking offer, they came up with a pouch that had all the features they were looking for.
Squeasy Gear sent me their 6 oz Aqua Squeasy Snacker, 3.5 oz Pink Squeasy Snacker, and 16oz Gray Squeasy Sport. The Squeasy Snacker is a reusable food pouch that holds either food or drinks. It has a free flow design for thicker foods such as yogurt and applesauce. A 2-in-1 removable No Spill Insert is also available for thinner foods or liquids.
Squeasy Snacker Features:
- Made from 100% food grade non-toxic materials
- BPA, PVC, Phthalate-free
- 100% silicone
- Attached cap
- Flat bottom and wide opening for easy filling
- Dishwasher safe
- Easy to grip spout and collar for opening and closing
The Squeasy Sport offers the same great benefits as the Snackers, but it is larger in size and it collapses flat for simple storage. It is perfect for hydration drinks, water, and protein shakes.
We tried out all three sizes right away. The 3.5 oz was perfect for my 17 month-old. I filled it with applesauce at first and I was immediately impressed. The wide neck made it easy to fill and soft, squishy design made it easy for her to grip. It was also extremely easy to take apart and wash. I just rinsed it out and placed it in the dishwasher on the top rack. Next we tried juice in the 6 oz. I was worried it would leak, but to my surprise, it didn’t. This made me extremely happy because it meant I could pack it in the diaper bag instead of her sippy cup and it would take up must less room.
My 11-year old tried ice water in the Squeasy Sport and he was impressed. His favorite part is that when he uses the No-Spill Insert, he can throw it in his backpack or attach it with the included ring without worrying about leaks. When it is empty, he can also roll it up and it takes up very little room in his bag. My son also uses his Squeasy Sport for smoothies and sports drinks.
I would definitely recommend Squeasy Gear products. They are durable, easy to clean, safe, and affordable. They make is easy to give snacks on the go and feed little ones at home without the worry of a mess. You can pick up the 3.5o oz Pink Squeasy Snacker for $11.99, the 6 oz Aqua Squeasy Snacker for $13.99, and 16 oz Gray Squeasy Sport for $16.99.
