Baby Food Storage

I have started making DD's baby food.  I immediately freeze it in covered ice cube trays, then transfer to ziploc bags.  Does anyone have any storage suggestions other than ziploc bags, I just hate to go through so many.  Also, any good products to transport them in?  I have used small gladware containers but I am always nervous that the lid will pop off.

Re: Baby Food Storage

  • I just used Ziploc bags. When we went out, I tried to do easy things like applesauce or canned organize pumpkins, sweet potatoes, or squash so I didn't have to worry about transporting frozen items. In the end, they don't eat purees for too long so you won't use that many Ziploc bags!

    Maybe this should be a FFFC, but I usually wash and re-use ziploc freezer bags. Pretty much the only time I don't is when I've stored raw meat in them.

    I have some really good gladware-type containers that are a glass container with a plastic top. I think I got them at the dollar store. The top would never pop off unexpectedly in a million years, it has to be snapped into place on all four sides.

  • Use pouches...much easier. 
  • You can use anything freezer safe for storage.  I think the bags are easy just because you can easily write on them and they don't take up as much space as a container would, but a glass or plastic storage container will work fine.

    As far as on the go I probably used something similar to what you are, but the lid fit really snugly.  Actually, now that I think about it they were plastic storage containers, but I actually found them in like the baby/kid aisle.  I think they came in a pack of 3.  Anyway, the lids are really tight.  I didn't worry at all that they were going to pop off.   

    But a glass jar would work well too.  They also sell a lot of baby food products now.  I'm not familiar with them, but I know they sell stuff to hold the food.  Maybe something like that would be good to invest in just for feeding on the go.

  • I love the Take & Toss small bowls for traveling with baby food.  You can fit 2-3 cubes in one.  No advice on freezer containers. I used Ziploc bags.

    I kept a few old jars to put food in for on the go.

    Sorry, the OP thinks baby food jars are the worst thing a lazy parent could possibly use. They're basically the same thing as feeding your older kids out of a box all day. Didn't you know?

    Yeah, that's totally what I said.  ::eye roll::
