Have you ever tried driving the long road between Jozi and Durbs with 3 cats and a toddler? If it’s not the Sandton or Penny doing their pound-kitty howls it is Lexa. We also have to stop a whole lot more, making the trip up to 8 hours long.

Now that is a long time to be strapped into a chair for a kid…

Instead of packing bottles and containers with lots of different snacks and juices I’ve used the Fill n Squeeze bags. It takes up less space and Lexa loves the novelty.


What’s in the sachets…

  • Water
  • Fruit juice
  • Custard with finely chopped fruits
  • Fruit smoothie
  • Baby food

We don’t buy juice boxes as (1) straws and (2) she never drinks the whole box. By pouring juice into the Fill n Squeeze bags we can give her just enough.

They are great for on the road – but even better if…

These little bags are also great if you want to make and freeze baby food at home.

  • 0,5cm spout
  • Marked at 30ml, 60ml, 90ml, 120ml and 150ml
  • Can be re-used
  • Even has a label for date and content description
  • Plus as an added bonus a monkey for each side

Funny enough, I haven’t been able to get a pic with Charlotte holding one as she is convinced I am out to steal her juice/food if it is in these sachets – but I will get her one of these days.
