EZ Squeezees Review~ January 7th 2014 (review originally completed for WAHM Reviews)
EZ squeezees are my new favorite product…seriously. I pack lunch for my two kiddos every day and the ONLY things that they don’t complain about are their applesauce pouches and yogurt tubes. I complain about it though: They are costly. They are not re-useable. Who knows what is growing inside those bags/tubes?!? (gross!) So far though I have chosen to concede the argument in exchange for my kiddos eating yogurt and applesauce daily without complaint…but I’ve known it could be done better.
EZ squeezees knew it could be done better…AND THEY DID IT! CELEBRATION music please! EZ squeezees was developed in Baltimore (MD) by parents who concluded that “manufacturers of processed foods were capitalizing on (parents’) desires for convenient and nutritious foods.” But now parents have an option that is cost-effective and eco-friendly.
EZ Squeezees: Reusable food pouches for all ages. They are cost effective and eco friendly! They are BPA and Phthlate free! The are dishwasher and freezer safe! Plus you can write on the back of them so you don’t have to guess…or taste test…to figure out which one is applesauce and which one is the smoothie! Best part yet? They are super easy to use…just FILL*SQUEEZE*EAT*REPEAT!

Ok so my conclusion is that I can’t live without them. But when I first received them in the mail I admit I was skeptical – mostly about cleaning them. So I’ve put them to the test. I’ve used them for several weeks filling them with applesauce, yogurt, yogurt with sprinkles, even a smoothie. I even forgot to empty one for two days (in my defense my daughter left her lunchbox stuffed under the seat in the car.) They have large side openings which make them easy to fill…and easy to clean. I was able to easily rinse and scrub the inside of the pouch with a cloth before placing in the dishwasher.
If you are looking for a way to feed your child(ren) healthy and convenient foods or even a way to carry a healthy snack for yourself, I highly recommend EZ squeezees. They even have recipes listed on their website for fruits, veggies, smoothies, paleo, Whole30 and more! By using EZ squeezees you can save money, save the environment, and feel good about “convenience” eating.
You can purchase EZ squeezee pouches online with your choice of small caps (ages 3+) or large caps (ages 0+) For this review I tested the larger style lids which were easy to twist on and off and were about an inch and a half in diameter. You can purchase a starter kit with two 3 packs of pouches plus 6 replacement caps (either size) for $19.99, a 3 pack of pouches for $9.99 or a 9 pack of pouches for $24.99.
