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.
