Press it. Take it. Yum. With the Infantino Fresh Squeeze Station

Thank you to infantino for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own.

About the Fresh Squeeze Station

Other methods for storing and serving baby purees and toddler & preschool snacks haven’t kept up with today’s parent. That’s why we created Fresh Squeezed. It presses your homemade or store bought foods into single serving, ready-to-go Squeeze Pouches so you can customize what your child eats and save money.

  • Includes 1-squeeze station, 3-tubes, 1-press and 10-squeeze pouches
  • Soft rubber press allows for easy grip
  • Non-skid base
  • Holds up to 4 oz. of your homemade puree
  • Dishwasher safe
  • BPA, PVC & phthalate free

Using the Fresh Squeeze Station

The first thing you need to do is slide the pouches into the station, then screw the filling tubes onto the pouches. This makes for a great and easy way to fill the pouches without any mess involved at all!  Once the tubes are attached you are ready to fill.

The squeeze station is the easiest thing to use that I’ve come across in a long time. When I first got the station I was worried that it was going to be complicated and hard to use. I couldn’t have been more wrong. You literally just fill the tubes with your puree, press down on the plunger, and remove the pouches. It was so simple I couldn’t wait to make more!

The one thing I will note is that after you press down on the each tube, be sure to remove the pouch and cap it before pulling the plunger back out and moving on to the next tube. If you don’t, the resulting suction created may suck up half of your puree back into the tube (I may or may not know this from experience and from not reading the directions).  🙂

Thoughts on the Infantino Fresh Squeeze Station

What I love:

  • Easy to use
  • Easy to clean
  • Kids love using the pouches
  • BPA, PVC & phthalate free
  • Easy to give my kids fresh food
  • Affordable
  • Can buy a silicone pouch to reuse (but it costs more)

What I didn’t like:

  • Pouches are not reusable (but they are recyclable)
  • Directions state food in pouches only lasts 48 hours in a refrigerator (seems pretty short to me – they do last longer in freezer)

Overall I really do like the squeeze station and my kids loved having the pouches. My son, who was not home at the time my daughter and I tried this out found the pouches in the refrigerator and ‘snuck’ about three of them. I only knew because I found the empty pouches laying on top of the garbage can. At least I can rest assured he was sneaking some healthy apple sauce and not candy!

The plan is to use these in their lunch boxes in place of store bought pouches and other prepared foods. The kids are always excited to take their own lunch and this makes it even more fun for them!

      Yep, and the applesauce (or any other puree) is really easy to make too!

    Interesting product and I would consider trying it if I had a toddler. Maybe I’ll suggest it to my sister to see how it works with making squeeze packs for my 2 yr old nephew.

      Thanks Yolanda! It would definitely be a fun gift, but does work for older kids too. We plan to pack our 6yr old’s lunch box with these. 🙂

    This is such a great gift idea for expectant parents. I will pass it along, my brother is having a baby this month! Well, his wife is doing the hard work, lol, but you know what I mean.

    this is SO COOL! “back in the day” when i made my kids’ baby foods (and my oldest is 8, mind you) we didn’t even have pouches for food.

    I NEED THIS! Both of my kids would love it and that is a rare thing, as one is 6 months old and the other is 10 years old.

    I love this idea. One of my problems with the pre made squeezes is that they are full of sugar and who knows what. Very cool to make your own!

    I have one and I LOVE it. It is great when the kids are sick and don’t want to eat anything. I put the applesauce in, and they will sit on the couch and eat out of the pouch. I do wish the reusable pouches weren’t so expensive though. I
