Piglet loves these things called Buddy Fruits, they’re fruit purées in little squeeze pouches. They also have them in the baby food aisle but they’re only 85 cents instead of a dollar each. They’re applesauce blends and they’re pretty good. Piglet could eat 10 in a day. This made the 85 cents really get racked up so I looked for something else.
And here, I found this, the infantino squeeze station. I also got an additional pack of 50 bags. I thought I’d have 60 always on hand but hello, Jen, read the package, they’re not reusable! But 50 bags are $17, so it’s still very cost effective.
First, I decided to make applesauce. Seemed easy enough. I bought a bag of apples, chopped them up, steamed them, stuck them through the food processor, and squeezed them into the sacks. The one bag of apples I got made 6 4-ounce bags.
Then, I let Piglet get into them. He was a little worried at first because they didn’t look the same, this kid has brand loyalty at 2 years old. But he seemed to like it. He didn’t finish the pouch though because I didn’t blend the apples so it wasn’t so much like an apple smoothie, there were still chunks that needed to be chewed. I also didn’t add any sugar or cinnamon so he wasn’t too pumped.
I liked them though and I have eaten all of them. I am out of brown sugar though so I haven’t whipped up some more apples but I did make a strawberry/blackberry blend. For some reason I had 2 bags of frozen fruit in my freezer (shrug) so I decided to try making those into a squeeze. I added a little sugar so it wasn’t so tart and he liked those a lot more.
Over all, it was pretty easy and it’ll be even more convenient once Blueberry is ready for solids because I can make vegetable purées too.
