With Squeez’Ems, Kids Can Be Top Of The Class In Eating A Healthy Lunch By Bringing Their Favorite Blended or Smooth Foods Along To School In Their Lunch Boxes
These reusable food pouches (many brands out there) are here to give kiddos an innovative (and fun!) way to bring their favorite healthy yogurts, apple or pear sauce and other puréed or blended foods along to school with them in their lunch boxes!
Parents who want to give their kids a healthy homemade lunch, kids with allergies and families who prioritize going green will love the new Screw Top Squeez’Ems!
With their wide opening, Squeez’Ems are easy to fill, clean, and store, and they are BPA, PVC, and Phthalate free. Because they are refillable and reusable, green school products for food are an earth-friendly alternative to store-bought premade food pouches. This makes them perfect for families concerned about the environment!
Also, these types of products are great for kids with allergies to store-bought foods, as parents can easily fill the reusable pouches with purées specific to their child’s diet.
Many of today’s premade puréed food pouches are actually less healthy than they seem, as they contain an abundance of preservatives and sugars.
Because reusable food pouches can be filled with whatever the parents choose, they are a fantastic solution for those concerned over the nutrition content of premade store-bought food pouches!
Most of these products are available at BabiesRUs stores and Amazon.com.
