About Squishy Snak Pak
Another great mom invented product, the Squishy Snak Pak was created by SAHM Michelle Zacharias out of a desire to feed her twin boys wholesome homemade baby food without the mess- both at home and on the go. I’m sure you’ve seen the ever popular single use commercial baby food pouches in stores, they offer a convenient alternative to jarred baby food for on the go, and self-feeding once baby is old enough to hold and squeeze the pouch. But what if you prefer to make your own baby food? What if you want the convenience, but don’t want to pay over $1 a pouch? What if you don’t want to throw a perfectly good pouch container and lid away after a just one use? Squishy Snak Pak is the perfect solution!
Squishy Snak Pak allows you to have the convenience of a portable, mess-free baby food pouch, while still providing your little one with fresh homemade food, and the ability to reuse the pouch over and over again!
I’ve always fed my little ones homemade baby food, but I have to admit it can be a real pain in the neck on the go. When the single use commercial baby food pouches came out I purchased a few just to try them out, and instantly fell in love with the convenience and portability they offered. The problem was, they were filled with shelf stable fruits & veggies that were who knows how many days old, not highly nutritious fresh homemade baby food. Plus, being the eco-crazy mom I am, I truly wasn’t a fan of the single use factor eother- even “old school” baby food jars can be reused! I desperately tried to come up with a way to reuse the pouches, but there was simply no way to clean them out unless you cut off the bottoms- and then what good would they be? I searched the web for reusable versions, but at the time nothing was available. I even entertained the idea of inventing some myself, but I certainly didn’t have the time to invest in a big business venture.
I continued feeding Kyliana homemade baby food because I knew it was best for her, and purchased a single use pouch here and there for long outings, camping trips, and times I knew we’d be away from home for extended periods of time. Then, within the past few months something fantastic started happening- I began receiving multiple emails from various mompreneurs telling me about their reusable baby food pouches. The first message I received was from Michelle at Squishy Snak Pak, and I couldn’t wait to give them a try!
The Squishy Snak Pak looks very similar to commercial baby food pouches, but offers many unique features as well…
The pouch is made of a high quality, thick BPA free plastic and features a choke-proof cap and heavy duty zip closure located at the bottom of the pouch.
The zip-lock style closure allows you to fill the pouch with up to 1/2 cup of your nutritious homemade creations, and makes it easy to clean and reuse the Squishy Snak Pak over and over again!
The Squishy Snak Pak is also freezer safe, providing a perfect solution for freezing pre-portioned homemade baby food. I love the convenience of having several pouches in the freezer so I can simply grab one, put it in the diaper bag, and within a couple hours have it thawed, fresh, and ready to eat on the go! Squishy Snak Paks aren’t just for babies either- our older children love them too. They make a healthier, and earth friendly alternative to store bought portable yogurts, smoothies, and applesauce pouches, and are the perfect size for lunchboxes or an after school snack.
Overall, I am very pleased with the Squishy Snak Pak and definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a healthy, eco-friendly alternative to commercial single use pouches. At just $9.99 (+shipping) per 2-pack, they are very cost effective as well. With single use pouches selling at $1 or more, the Squishy Snak Pak will easily pay for itself after just a few uses, and you’ll still have the ability to use it again and again!
