Learn How to Store Homemade Baby Food at Your Apartment at Meetinghouse in Boothwyn

July 10, 2014

If you'd like to make your baby's food instead of buying prepared jars at the store, there are a few things to keep in mind. Making the food is easy, but storing the food can be a bit more complicated. Read these tips on how and where to store all of that homemade baby food at your apartment at Meetinghouse:

  • Purchase a few ice cube trays. Before each use, make sure to clean the trays with soap and hot water. Then, spoon the food you pureed into the sections of the tray. Each cube accounts for one ounce of baby food, so you'll know exactly how much your baby consumes at each meal.
  • The ice cube trays can take up a lot of space in your freezer. To make more room, dump the frozen cubes of food into resealable plastic bags. Label the bag with the type of food and the date. The frozen food cubes can be stored for up to three months.
  • If you store food in your refrigerator, make sure to feed it to your baby within 48 hours. Fish and poultry should be consumed within 24 hours.
