Your Subo food bottle
We hold safety in the highest regard when designing and manufacturing our products. The materials used to manufacture the Subo food bottle are PP, HDPE, TPE and silicone; all are BPA and Phthalate free.
The Subo food bottles hold 210mls. However, we will shortly be launching two new sizes – 300ml and 500ml bottles.
Subo food bottles come in Musk, Duck Egg Blue, Pink, Blue, Mint and Grey.
Yes the 12mm spout comes as standard with your Subo food bottle. You can also purchase a 5mm straw spout that can be interchanged in your Subo food bottle. We do not recommend children under 2 years of age use the 12mm spout.
The two spout sizes to allow for different thicknesses (viscosity) of food to be consumed. The larger spout (12mm) allows for thicker food types like cereals and spaghetti to be eaten. The smaller straw spout is for more liquid food types like smoothies. However, please remember that the Subo food bottle is for food and not for drinks such as water. We do not recommend children under 2 years of age use the 12mm spout.
Children under 2 years of age should use the 5mm straw spout. We do not recommend children under 2 years of age use the 12mm spout.
The 5mm straw spout however, is also ideal for older children and adults who would like to consume more liquid meals such as smoothies.
Currently the Subo food bottle only comes in the 210ml size. However, our 300ml and 500ml bottles are coming soon.
How to use your Subo
Yes, please download our Subo care instructions here.
Subo is not designed for liquid drinks, it is best used for pureed or mashed, viscous foods. Some examples of foods that can be used in the Subo food bottle are: yogurts, smoothies, pureed fruits and vegetables, soft breakfast cereals soaked in milk etc.
Yes. You can push the platform up the tube to the desired volume then fill.
The Subo food bottle has volume markers in both millilitres and fluid ounces and on both sides of the bottle, located beside the windows. You may notice that one side is upside down. The Subo base and collar can be assembled on either side of the tube, making it multi-directional. The markers with the TOP nearest the spout are the ones you should be using. The top of the platform will line up with the markers indicating the amount of food remaining in the bottle.
No, we suggest that you do not freeze the Subo food bottle. The Food Pod is one of our exciting upcoming products, which will allow you to freeze portions perfectly fitted to your Subo food bottle. See our recipes page for more ideas on what food you can load into the Subo food bottle.

When food has had contact with saliva it cannot be then stored for re-use.
Please follow your normal food safety guidelines for how long you can store food.
We recommend demonstrating to your child how to suck through the spout. It is a good idea not to tip the bottle upside down, or squeeze the bottle as neither approach will work. Younger children can take some time to learn the correct technique, especially when moving from a teat bottle.
We do not recommend you add boiling water to your Subo food bottle. If the food you are consuming requires boiling water, please prepare your food in an appropriate container before loading into the Subo food bottle.

Returns, parts and damages
Please take extra care with the platform as if this is damaged or bent out of shape it will hinder performance. You can purchase replacement parts through our online shop as required.
Please ensure that the valve located in the base of the bottle is not sealed shut. At the top of the dome-shape valve, there is a 12mm slit that can sometimes stick together after washing. Gently squeeze the dome and the slit should pop apart. In order for the platform to move freely up the tube it requires air-flow through the base and up through the tube. Please also check that the inlet hole in the base is not obstructed (i.e. name stickers)
