We LOVE GoGo SqueeZ Applesauce!! {Review}

Snacking on the go with my toddler has always been a fear of mine. In my mind, it could really only go one of two ways:

1) Be totally messy, requiring a wash cloth and usually a change of clothes

or

2) Not very healthy at all.

Not anymore!! Now that we found GoGo SqueeZ by Materne my days of dread over the traveling snack are over. GoGo SqueeZ is applesauce in a re-sealable (very key) pouch!

From the GoGo SqueeZ website:

Story has it that in the 19th century, a very loving grandfather was determined to craft a special snack for his grandson. Using delicious apples from his backyard orchard in the Val De Loire region of France, near the Chateau Chambord, Monsieur Materne created a delicious and simple applesauce. The Materne company was born and would go on to become the most popular applesauce company in France.
Known as Materne Pom’potes in France, the brand has become the favorite fruit snack of children with more than 1 billion pouches consumed to date.


Materne GoGo squeeZ was launched in the US in June 2008 to offer American families the opportunity to enjoy our no spoon, no mess, all natural squeezable applesauce when on the go! Each pouch contains the equivalent of one fruit serving and supports our mission to American consumers: Helping parents feed their kids better foods when they are on the go!

What We LOVE About GoGo SqueeZ:
- 100% FRUIT!
- 1 Pouch = 1 Fruit Serving
- No Spoon / No Mess!
- The independence it gives my toddler to feel "So Big!" by using the pouch all on her own. (Important Note Here: The cap to GoGo SqueeZ is a choking hazard and should be kept away from young children, as noted on the pouch.)
- Pouches need NOT be refrigerated before opened. Perfect for stashing in the diaper bag!
- Variety in flavors!! appleapple, applecinnamon, applebanana, applepeach & applestrawberry.
- Delicious. Sweet & Simple.

What Could Be Better About GoGo SqueeZ:
- Not a thing! GoGo SqueeZ is an amazing product as it is. In the future, we would love to see a GoGo SqueeZ for big kids. It's very easy for older children to want to suck down 2-3 of this fabulous little pouches! We'd also love to see a big variety pack of at least 12 pouches to simplify our shopping needs.
 
The Nap Time Review:
GoGo Squeez is one of those great products that you can give your child without the guilt. From the first time we introduced GoGo Squeez to our daughter (then 11 months) she was giggly with delight that she could hold the pouch and suck out the applesauce all on her own, to the very last drop. I highly recommend keeping 2-3 pouches of GoGo SqueeZ hidden away in your diaper bag at all times. You never know when hunger will strike, and the applesauce is such a great alternative to the average, not-so-healthy diaper bag snacks that kids eat these days. So far we have only had the pleasure of trying appleapple and applecinnamon (the other 3 flavors are not yet carried at our local grocery store). I think we are most excited about trying applestrawberry. What's your favorite?
 
You'll be seeing more of GoGo SqueeZ really soon! In fact, they just made the 25 Best Snacks by Parents Magazine's February issue.
 
 
I am in no way affiliated with GoGo SqueeZ or Materne, other than a happy and satisfied customer. I was in no way compensated for this post and the opinions here are my own. They may differ from yours.

  1. I love those squeegy baby foods- we discovered "happy baby" a little late in the game, but I'm all for it next time with baby #2!

  2. Agreed - snacking on the go can be so difficult. These look great! Do you have any idea whether the packaging is BPA free?
