Storing Home Made Baby Food

Gabriele - posted on 12/26/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




I have decided to make my son home made baby food when the time comes. I work from he most of the time so it just seems more cost effective to use the fruits and veggies up here that often go bad if me, my husband or oldest son do not eat them. I was considering purchasing small (4.5 oz) plastic soufflé cups with lids so I could make the food and pour it into the cup and either store in freezer or fridge. Obviously you can't freeze in jars and instead of a two step storage process (freeze in tray and then put in another dish to defrost and feed) I would like a more streamlined process. Has anyone tried this before? I know there may be concerns with chemicals in containers but from the research I've done on these cups we shouldn't have much if any concern. Especially since food won't be sitting and absorbing chemicals for long. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I found some large ice cube trays and froze food in those and then stored them in a zip lock bag in the freezer. You then just take the portions out you need and microwave them in the dish you will be serving them in.
