Super Simple Organic Blueberry Banana Baby Food

Organic Blueberry Banana Baby Food

Both of my girls are huge fans of fruits, give them any fruit, and they absolutely fall head over heels for them—any time of the day.

On the other hand, veggies eat and enjoy but not as much as the fruits, of course.

My daughters both enjoy the pureed concoctions that big manufacturers offer, I think part of it is the delicious flavor, and the other part is that it’s squishy. They can take their snack—anywhere they go!

Though some may find it unconventional for older kids to enjoy these snacks, I think it is better than reaching for junk food when you are out and about.

Introducing Squishy Snak Paks

While reaching for whole fruit or a vegetable is simple, nothing is more than convenient than having a Squishy Snak Pak that is really fast food that you make!

And it’s fun to eat!

As a mother, I like that you can get purees that are mixed with fruits and veggies and the kids are none the wiser.

Unless you purchase organic versions of these packs, you really may not know what your kids are taking in. Even then, you have to be careful.

We are a busy family always on the go and finding ways to provide fast, fun, and healthy food is a must.

The Squishy Snak Paks are snack containers you can fill from the bottom, squish it out the top, and enjoy! 

The Squishy Snak Paks are made from BPA-free materials and feature a choke-proof cap along with heavy-duty zip closure. You can fill it up with 1/2 cup of your favorite concoctions and wash and reuse them over and over again!

Healthy Snacks You Can Trust

Well, because, you make them yourself.

I made organic pureed food for the girls as babies and felt happy that I knew exactly what was going into those precious little bodies.

Now that they are older, I still have that same worry and I honestly think these packs are genius. I even added a drop of Vitamin D to the Snak Paks so that they had their daily intake too.

You can even add chia seeds to add that extra punch of healthy!

They have window vents so that you can see what is what and they make for a perfect way to store and freeze baby food.

Especially since they are portioned at a 1/2 cup.

I found the Squishy Snak Paks to be heavy duty, easy to wash and I did not have any spills. Which was a worry of mine as soon as I saw that the closure was at the bottom. Another thing that I was stoked about is that they get every last drop, I noticed that Mimi could squeeze out every single drop without folding the bag or rolling it, we just pushed it up and every last drop was enjoyed.

My only suggestion would be to rinse the Squishy Snak Paks as soon as you can, even if you’re out and about. You can unzip the bottom and let the water run through. If you don’t get to it right away, you can always place the opened packs and caps in warm soapy water.

A measuring cup filled with fruit mixture to pour into Squishy Snak Pak.

Healthy and Delicious

I used a mug to help me guide and support the Squishy Snak Pak and a measuring cup to help me pour in the mixture. Attach the cap before starting!

I poured in a little bit of the Blueberry Banana Custard into the pack first, then added a drop of Vitamin D, then I finished pouring the rest of the mixture in. I sealed it and it was good to go.

Yummy Fruit Concoctions

The next flavors I made were Banana Nut Cream and Pear Nectarine. I cut the bananas in half, cooked them in 1/2 cup of almond milk, and then pureed them.

With the pears and nectarines, I used water as the base, peeled them, cut them and removed all seeds, cooked until soft, and pureed them.

Easy Peasy

After I made all my Squishy Snak Paks, I just placed them in Tupperware and put them in my fridge. So far, we’ve used them every time we go out.

They’re perfect for a bit of hydration, vitamins and simply just taste good. I will be getting more adventurous and making fruit and veggies Squishies.

I love the fact that even if the girls don’t eat them in a good length of time, they are freezer-proof and they can go right into the freezer to hold for even longer.

Mimi sure loves this organic blueberry banana baby food, so I hope you guys do too!

Though, this batch went very quickly with March Break that just passed. I am also in love that they are BPA-free and green, while the store-bought packs were convenient—they were one-time use only and couldn’t be reused.

  1. Oh these seem super fun for the kids! I love the designs and that they are reusable. That way you can put in all the fruits your kiddo likes and know that they're getting in their fruit or veggie servings of the day. I'll have to look into this, definitely something that I'd love to go in my kids lunch bag to school.

  2. These would be great for packing the smoothies I make for road trips, lunch, or just to have some ready to go in the freezer. My kids always ask for some but the cups I have aren't the best for them and with these I wouldn't have to worry about spills!

  3. I would make pear and apple sauce. My son loves both of them, and we are on the go so often. no need for jars and spoons!

  4. I would fill it with a green smoothie both my kids (4 and 1) love! Banana, apple, kale, hemp seeds, ginger and turmeric roots, almond milk and walnuts. A little date molasses and vit D et voilà!

  5. I love making my own baby food! I like to combine stuff like sweet potatoes and apples in to other veggies to sweeten it up.

  6. These look awesome! My little guy just loves apples and blueberry puree, so that's probably what I'd try out first.

  7. first time I saw this, thanks for the review. I am learning so much with reading blogs thanks
