We love to make green smoothies. I let everyone take part pushing the button on the blender. It’s like a kid magnet, anything that makes a lot of noise. After I serve them up and put the straw in, they end up getting everywhere. The straw falls out and smoothie gets on the wall, someone tries to drink it without the straw and smoothie gets all over their shirt, another one decides to see what happens when they blow on the straw so smoothie gets all over the table.
I was avoiding even making them! Then I was approached by Squeasy Gear to review their new Squeasy Snacker (read my full disclosure policy). Now I don’t have to worry about my kids making messes with any kind of drink and it makes a great self feeder for infants too!
The Squeasy Snacker is the most versatile reusable food pouch on the market. It was designed by parents for parents to provide easy feeding on-the-go.
It is the only food pouch that offers the patent pending 2-in-1 NO SPILL INSERT for no spill or free flow. It is made of BPA, PVC, and Phthalate Free, reversible 100% food-grade silicone for easy cleaning and collapses completely flat to prevent wasted contents. Plus, it is Dishwasher Safe (Top rack) and Freezer Safe!
I received two Squeasy Snackers to try. The 4oz and the 6oz. I wanted the 4oz for my baby and also for my friend’s baby that I watch. The small size makes it easier for baby to hold themselves and self-feed. Since my friends baby doesn’t like to be fed from a spoon, this really helped me out! She got the hang of it right away and finished her puree off in no time! What a happy camper she was 🙂
The 6oz Squeasy Snacker was perfect for my 2-year-old. Usually I give him a straw which ends up making a mess. I would make my kids stay at the kitchen table to drink their smoothies. Now, everyone can enjoy their smoothie where ever they want.
I definitely want to buy the larger 9oz Squeasy Snacker for my older children for all sorts of things like yogurt, pudding, juice, and milk. Unlike other food pouches, it prevents spills so I don’t have to worry about packing juice or milk for a trip.

Mango Smoothie Recipe
This is my children’s favorite smoothie recipe! You can add more flavors to change up this base recipe like raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries!
1 Cup Fresh or Frozen Mango Chunks
1 Cup Fresh or Frozen Peach Chunks
1/4 – 1/2 Cup Pineapple Juice
Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. If you are using all fresh fruit, you can add crushed ice to make it thicker. Add baby spinach, cucumber, avocado, or dandelions to make a green smoothie. After filling your Squeasy Snacker for the kids, make sure you save some for yourself!
