The Sili Squeeze

by Anne Paddock

When Kristin Ahmer couldn’t find an easy way to feed her children pureed foods and smoothies, she decided to create her own patent-pending spill-proof design that keeps food in their mouths and not all over their clothes or surroundings. By combining the best attributes of a bottle and a disposable food pouch, Ahmer came up with the Sili Squeeze: a reusable pouch (made from 100% food grade silicone) that can be filled with purée, smoothies, and any ready-made snack like yogurt or applesauce.

Little ones rely on their natural instincts to use the Sili Squeeze on their own as they discover that by squeezing the pouch and simultaneously sucking on the nipple, they will get what they want:  food. Older children who want resistance-free feeding graduate to the Sili Squeeze with Eeeze. No longer spill-proof, the Sili Squeeze with Eeeze provides a free-flowing eating experience with the open nipple spout. Both products allow parents and caregivers to give kids wholesome, nutrient-rich pureed foods and smoothies on the go.

Dishwasher safe but also very easy to clean by hand, the Sili Squeeze is also better for the environment than store-bought disposable food pouches that are discarded after use.  But, the most important attribute of the Sili Squeeze is that you are able to provide the pureed ingredients or smoothie at a fraction of the cost of store-bought pouches. Less waste, less cost, healthier food, and convenience – what else could a mom want out of a product whose purpose is to nourish kids?breakaway

Squeezing the goodness out of what we are given” is the company’s trademark which means your child is able to squeeze fresher, healthier, wholesome foods out of the Sili Squeeze. At the same time, the Sili Squeeze Company is committed to squeezing the goodness out of each obstacle or opportunity that is presented to them as they introduce new products that make our lives and our children’s lives better.
