When my 3 year old was just making his way out of the baby food stage, my sister discovered baby food in "squeezie pouches." I bought some and kept them in the car for those times when he was hungry and we need "fast food."
Fast Forward 3 years...
These buggers are expensive so I never intended to make them a main source of food for my little guy.
With 4 kids- it's hard to make the little guy's schedule a priority. It seems like while we are at home he's sleeping and then I have to yank him up and toss him in the car to take someone somewhere, leaving little to no time to feed the baby.
Enter- Fast Food- Convenience- The Squeezie Pouch!
And so- Squeezie Pouch it is. On this day it was Carrot and Banana which he "chugged." Yes, Chugged! I'm amazed at how much this kid eats already!!
I had a really soft avocado so I was able to feed him slices of it for lunch. I just held it to his mouth and he gummed off bites of it.
I realized that after just a week of tempting him and then putting puffs on his tray, he is now able to pick them up and put them in his mouth. Since avocado is a little slippery for him to pick up, I smashed some avocado through the holes of the puffs so that he could pick up some "avocado puffs" as a snack.
Frustrated by the price of the squeezie pouches, I decided to try to create my own for "dinner." I cut off the bottom of a used pouch, smashed some avocado and added extra water to make it thinner, filled the pouch and then taped the bottom closed with packing tape.
It worked, but after all of those steps it kind of lacked the "fast food," element...
What about you? Are you hooked on the squeezie pouch? Any suggestions to break me of my addiction?
