G-Tube Meal Containers

After years of trying many containers, I have found these work best:

Daily Meal Storage

Pyrex 11 cup rectangle. VERY hard to break (haven’t broken one yet unlike every other container type I’ve tried), replacement lids can be purchased from the company, Easy to clean (dishwasher!)  Freezer, microwave, dishwasher safe. www.pyrex.com  Depending on the quantity fed at each meal, holds approximately one day’s food.







Single Meal Storage

Found at Container Store as Klip-It containers. www.containerstore.com in the kitchen area. Also found at www.sistemaplastics.com  These are great because of the seal in the lid and the clips on the side, which make it ALMOST spill-proof. I purchase the 1 liter size.  Can be frozen, but then don’t drop them on your ceramic floor like I did.






Single Meal Storage for Travel

Quart size zip-loc freezer bags. For travel! Fill with only  enough for a single feeding.  Freeze flat, stacked on top of each other (makes packing them in the cooler easy).  Thawing one is easy and quick. Then feed, throw away the bag and move on! When I’m on the road I take along a 4 cup container, like a large yogurt container, to set the bag in during feeding. 






Cooler for Travel

This is the best thing ever!  Multiple outside compartments, telescoping handle, wheels, one large cooler compartment, additional compartment above it.  Purchased at http://keepyourcooler.com It is the Deluxe Outdoor Rolling Cooler Bag. Not too big, not too small.  Makes outings easier without back strain!



One thought on “G-Tube Meal Containers

  1. Hi–

    I saw your blog post today and wanted to share a resource I
    thought your members would be interested in (or rather I think some of our readers might be interested in your post). My husband and I recently launched a social networking site for parents of kids
    with medical needs. We’re hoping it will be a tremendous
    resource for parents of kids with medical needs to share tips, resources, and support. Will you
    take a look at Brightbeacon.org and see if it’s something you’d
    like to join or share with some of your readers? I’m including our press
    release below with more information. Thank you so much! Amy

    Announcing A New Pediatric Resource
    for families of children with medical needs
    BrightBeacon.org: A One-Stop Resource for Families to Connect

    June 16, 2009 – At long last, families of
    children with medical needs can turn to one website for a
    support community. Bright Beacon, a secure online social
    networking tool, was founded by two doctors and their families
    to meet the perceived needs of families seeking local (San Antonio) resources
    to cope with their child’s illness.

    Until now, families have had to turn illness-specific
    organizations like cysticfibrosis.com to connect. But what if
    your child doesn’t have a well-known illness, or has more than
    one illness? Bright Beacon utilizes web 2.0 technology to
    allow families to create a profile for their child, select
    multiple diagnoses, and start connecting wtih other families
    near them in under 5 minutes. Looking for a playgroup? a baby-
    sitting swap? a vacation share? someone who understands?
    Bright Beacon gives parents the tools to find and create their
    own community.

    Please help us spread the word about this incredible resource
    for families. Check out BrightBeacon.org and forward this
    email along to families and/or medical providers that you think
    would be interested.

    The Bright Beacon Team
