I’m about to dispel a myth_ when you’re making homemade baby food, the biggest challenge isn’t actually cooking the food, it’s how and where to store it. Since you can only keep freshly made baby food in the refrigerator for 3-4 days, freezing half of a recipe can be essential to having homemade, baby “fast food” ready at all times. I love freezing purees in 1 or 2 oz. cubes, but these Fresh Baby cube trays are also a lifesaver.

I love being able to pour Chloe’s baby food into these trays because they’re BPA and phthalate-free, spill-proof, stackable, dishwasher safe and you only have to defrost what you need at each meal so there’s little to no waste.

We have enough challenges in our daily lives. Keeping fresh food on hand for our babies doesn’t need to be one of them. Check these cube trays out and let me know what you think.

  1. You can freeze baby food up to a month, it will only just last in the fridge for 3-4 days though.

  2. Started using your site about three weeks ago and just love it – it has been very helpful at our house, and our friends love it, too.

    Regarding this particular article, I’m curious where the 4-day rule comes from… if you can freeze breast milk for up to a month (and that’s a conservative time frame), why not be able to freeze their food for the same time period? I used the storage trays above and will likely use them again if we have another baby, so I’d like to know if I’ve been doing something wrong regarding food safety. Thanks for your time, Melissa

  3. I LOVE the Fresh Baby trays and book. Along with your website it has been a wonderful guide for this first time mom.

    Can you do some more with finger foods? My son has mastered the “o” cereal and I’m a bit stuck on what to do next?

  4. My “baby” is now almost 2, and I have to tell you these Fresh Baby trays were a lifesaver for us. We registered for the trays and food making kit for our baby shower, and I started using them immediately after the cereal phase. The book and dvd were great to show you how easy it was to step through the phases of the various fruit and veggie choices (from easily digestible to those with more texture). And it was so easy to have a zip lock on hand in the freezer to pull out for each meal, or drop a few cubes in a container to take to day care. We rarely purchased any baby food from the store.
