I received an Infantino Squeeze Station for review purposes. No other compensation was provided. All thoughts and experiences are my own.
Infantino Squeeze Station Helps Feed the Picky Toddler
While preparing for the arrival of our new little one, I’m still in the middle of raising a toddler. He’s a busy little guy with a lot to say and opinions about everything, especially what he eats. It’s always a great meal when he looks at dinner and announces, “That’s nasty.” Thanks, son.
But there is one thing I can count on to help me get some nutrition in him. The squeeze pouches that seem to come in every combination these days. Of course, unless I find a sale, the pouches can really run my grocery bill up. Plus, they don’t always come in varieties that W likes.
Enter the Infantino Squeeze Station into my life.
We received a variety of products from the Infantino Fresh Squeezed line including:
- Squeeze Station, a 3 Pouch Press unit with (10) starter Squeeze Pouches
- 50-pack Squeeze Pouches
- Keeper Squeeze Pouch which is a soft silicone container that offers an additional way to fill-and-go and is easy to clean
- Peppy Puree to quickly blend your steamed foods
- Couple a Spoons™ which attach easily to Squeeze Pouches for mess-free feeding
I’ll admit that I was a bit nervous to try making my own food to go in the pouches. But I loved the idea of being able to make foods that are healthy for W and ones that he likes so he will actually eat them!
So I broke out the Peppy Puree and got started!
And I quickly fell in love with the Infantino Peppy Puree. I can think of so many uses for it besides making purees for my kids. And it’s so compact it fits in my kitchen cabinets without taking up much space at all! Although if you do decide to start with apples (W is an applesauce fiend), I would recommend peeling them if you’re looking to puree more quickly.
I left the skin on and it took me a bit longer to get it all blended in. I even had to scoop out a few stragglers. But then it was time to get smushing!
I was pleased to discover that the Squeeze Station was easy to use. The pouches slide right in and then I was able to screw the containers on the top and was ready to get smushing! One of the things that has held me back from making my own food (and squeeze pouches) is that I thought it would be really challenging. Well, I was wrong!
Easy Squeeze Pouches with Infantino Fresh Squeezed
I found the system easy to use and hopefully by creating some of our own food, I can control the ingredients and save some money on store-bought pouches while encouraging W to eat more than chicken nuggets and crackers!
I feel like the pouches would store great in the freezer so I’m definitely thinking that this will continue to be an option for us while W is in his picky stage and as our little girl starts trying solids next year.
What flavor squeeze pouch would you make for your child?
