Made with love. EZ Squeezes DIY Squeeze Pouch

Made with love.

I was in the check out line the other day purchasing groceries, when my heart nearly stopped! When i glanced down at my receipt, I think my heart might have stopped for a minute. I spent $27 on Gerber Yogurt Melts, $20 on Earth’s Best fruit pouches, and $12 on Happypuffs! I could not believe how much it cost. I puree my own baby foods and splurge on organic foods, but I could not justify spending almost $40 a week on yogurt melts and puffs. My kids absolutely LOVE those on the go snack. I stead of going without, I decided to make my own delicious snacks for the kiddos. I was thrilled with the results. The homemade squeeze pouches were a hit and very cost effective!

  1. I don’t have littles anymore, but my kids always beg for those Go-go squeeze things. Ridiculously expensive!! Now I can say yes…in a matter of speaking. ;) Thank you!
