Nifty and cool food bottles from Australia
Ditch those expensive food pouches that usually mostly contain apple juice. Instead, fill your own food bottle with nice food that your child likes! These clever non-squeeze bottles are specially designed for mushy consistencies, like mashed fruit or veggies, or porridge.
What’s so good about the Subo bottles is that they can’t be squeezed = no mess. The food is instead sucked out when the baby sucks on the mouth piece. They’re also easy to wash, and they don’t hurt to look at either.
Subo bottle facts
The food bottle allows babies, toddlers and children to feed themselves independently. It is great for use on the go and works best with healthy homemade purèes, smoothies, yogurts and mashed foods.
The re-usable food bottle helps families to save money and to be more environmentally friendly by eliminating the need to buy and dispose of expensive single use squeezable packaged foods. Because the food bottle is non-squeezable it reduces the chance of children creating a wasteful mess.
Children as young as 6 months can easily sip the food from the soft silicon spout and watch as the platform automatically moves up the bottle! The viewing windows allows parents and children to see where the platform is telling them how much food it left inside.
We recommend that you do not freeze or use your Subo in the microwave. It is difficult to test the food temperature inside the bottle. Instead, we suggest that you always check food is heated to the desired safe temperature before loading into Subo.
Subo is not designed for liquid drinks, its best used for puree or mashed viscous foods. Some examples of foods that can be used in Subo are: yogurts, smoothies, purred fruits and vegetables, soft breakfast cereals soaked in milk etc.
The bottle inside volume is 210 ml but you can use less of it if you want. If so, push the platform up the tube to the desired volume, then fill it up.

Subo – The Food Bottle is the brainchild of Aussie parents, Glen and Julie-Anne. Like most parents who lead busy lives, they sought after innovative products to assist in balancing time with their baby and toddler. Looking for a better way to feed their children home made nutritious foods while on the go, they were unable to find a suitable product that didn’t create a wasteful mess. The idea for a “non-squeezable” food bottle was born. If their children couldn’t squeeze it there would be less chance for mess.
Subo – The Food Bottle is proudly 100% Australian made and 100% Australian owned.
We have secured a license from the Australian Made Campaign to use the iconic Australian Made Logo. Although manufacturing overseas seems to be the current trend, we made a conscious decision to support local industry. This decision also enables us to ensure our customers get products of the highest quality, using the best and safest materials.
Glen’s heritage is Canadian/Filipino. One of his fondest and earliest memories of childhood, was his mum feeding him and saying the word Subo over and over again. Subo is a Tagalog (Filipino) word meaning mouthful; further subo-an means to feed. Our hope is that Subo creates fond memories for you and your family, one mess free mouthful at a time!
