time is always a concern – whether it is being a parent or as an adult – when it comes to cooking. i had received time-saving tips from friends, books and online sources about how to make the process easier when it comes to homemade baby food by freezing foods in ice cube trays or muffin pans. however when i was reading Wholesome Baby Food Guide (read post), it seemed like a lot of foods didn’t freeze well or resulted in varying consistency. i want to keep track of each food so i opted to make foods in batches and store them.
when i started cooking, i invested in glass storage containers and had disposed of the problematic plastic containers so i had the tools handy to store foods. when introducing each food you have to have the baby try it for 3-5 days to make sure s/he is not allergic to it. also until baby’s one, milk is still the primary source of food so you only need small amounts of food at the beginning so the smaller containers came in especially handy.
