Storing Baby Food


Cube your food If you don’t have the time or desire to make food daily, pre-make and freeze it. For purees, this is easiest done in ice cube trays. Once the puree is made, pour it into ice-cube trays, and when the cubes are frozen, put them in a container marked with the name of the puree and the date. Frozen purees can last in the freezer for a year. To thaw, place in the fridge overnight.

Pay attention to plastic Report after report has shown that certain plastics can release questionable chemicals into food, so use a BPA-free ice cube tray and try to store the frozen cubes in glass, not plastic. If you don’t have glass storage containers, use old jelly or tomato sauce jars. Be sure to leave room at the top for the liquids to expand and also so the food won’t touch the lid, which may contain BPA.
