One of my greatest joys as a mother has been making my children homemade baby food. From the very first puree I made, it became a passion of mine to share the sweet, natural flavors of fresh foods with my little babies. I wish I knew about Wean Green Cubes back when I was preparing their first foods. Made of durable glass with a silicone-sealed lid, these 4 ounce containers are BPA, PVC, phthalate and plasticizer free, which these days are the most important qualities I look for when buying food safe containers. You can freeze food in these, travel with them, even serve food right out of them, so they are truly multi-purpose. Even though no one in my house is eating baby food anymore, I still use my Wean Green Cubes for everything from peas to spices to general storage when I just don’t want to part with that last portion of food that might otherwise get thrown away if I didn’t have a small container to put it in. Whether you’re looking for an awesome baby shower gift or just want to liberate yourself from plastic, these are a fantastic choice!
I’m such a big fan, Wean Green is extending a special offer to weelicious users_ 15% discount AND free shipping when you order on their website, www.weangreen.com! Just enter the discount code “weelicious” between now and the last day of Feb. 2011 to get a great deal.
Or just use small mason jam jars. Same size, but you get 12 for like 7.99. labe, fridge, freeze, store just the same.
I don’t. 🙁 I haven’t heard of any lately, but when I do I always post it on Facebook!
I’m going to buy at least 2 or 3 sets of these! I didn’t need any back when you posted this, Catherine. I didn’t have any kids then! Now, my daughter is 6 months, and I just started her on solids. I’m interested in discounts for them. I’ve searched the internet, but haven’t found much for %’s off. Would you happen to know if I can get a good deal on these anywhere? You may not know, but I thought I may ask.
Update: I wrote the company and received a prompt and apologetic response. The rep said that the company intends to change the packaging and is working on a new product that should solve the breakage problems. I received replacement lids and a promise to try the new product when it is available. I’m excited to be back in business with a complete set and looking forward to an improved product that may solve the leakage issue.
I really wanted to love these – I even bought two sets for a whopping $50. As others have mentioned, the tabs break off sooo easily. My daughter dropped the cube-with-lid on the floor (from sitting position of a 7-month old – not very high). The lids don’t stay on in the diaper bag. This goes up there with one of my worst baby purchases for the $$$. Too bad there weren’t more reviews out there when I ordered online.
I am so sorry to hear this story! I would love to chat with you, can you send me an email at email@example.com or give me a call at 1.888.923.9326? This problem was fixed and I am unsure how your order was overlooked, we will get you some new cubes asap! Our glass specialists in New York would gladly talk with you as well if you need some reassurance;) Also those baby food jars from the store are great for daily use as long as they are not frozen or heated. They are un-tempered glass and can chip off into food without us noticing! I love using them to organize:) ~Melissa
Hey Jennifer, I am so sorry to hear that! Can you send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org? I would love to replace these, and just make sure you aren’t using a direct heat source or steam to warm them up. Thanks! Melissa
I was so excited when I bought these a few months ago. I too was looking for a way to store my home made baby food without using plastic. However, I’ve had 2 of these break on me when I heat up the food. I have even tried pulling the jar out of the fridge 45 minutes before I need to feed my baby so the temperature change is not sudden. I am not impressed with these. What has worked best for me are re using baby food jars that I have bought from the store. I am so bummed!

We should go to business together on this idea! The good news is that most of the lids that come with glass containers are made with silicone lids which stand up to high heat!
Here is my issue with glass containers – I have converted nearly all my containers to glass. I am expecting my second baby. I like these containers and have been looking at them on Amazon…BUT
Am I the only one who has a problem with the PLASTIC LIDS?
First of all, they are plastic. Second of all, they BREAK – at the seams they tear apart. Then you are left with a glass container, no lid. Not cool.
I love the glass containers but I need to figure out how to solve this issue.
That’s also a great idea!
I’m one of those mom’s on a tight budget and would love to buy cute little gadgets too. But instead I bought the jarred baby food, about 10 jars or so and saved them for my baby food purees. I would put them through the washing machine to sanitize and store my baby food in them, left a bit of room for the contents to rise since I was freezing them.
Thanks for sharing these! I’m trying to move us, slowly, to non-plastic storage containers and these look perfect for my toddler’s little snacks. Definitely checking these out.
These will be great for my toddler’s yogurt I pack for daycare. I stopped buying small containers of baby yogurt and instead buy one large one to reduce my plastic consumption.
Totally true. There are tons of options for storing baby food. This is another option 🙂
DolLar tree ice cube trays and Saran war worked perfectly for this mama on a budget! So many gadgets but they’re not necessary if you’re poor.
I just ordered as well and it was free shipping but the 15% did not come off. I put in the order anyway and emailed them. As a Canadian I was happy to see this product is from Canada!
I’ve used the one cup size pyrex successfully but these look nice as they are square so would fit frozen babyhood cubes nicely.
I had that same problem – it’s free shipping until I enter the code “weelicious” and then it takes 15% off, but it adds shipping back so it actually costs more if you enter the code than if you don’t. Hopefully they get that worked out because I’d love to buy them!
I just tried to order and when I entered the code it took off the 15% but still tried to charge me shipping. Just curious if there was a minimum to purchase in order to get the free shipping. I can’t find that info anywhere.
I would get 8 (2 pack). It’s nice to have a bunch to fill and get more if you need them!
These look awesome! How many do you suggest to order as a starter set? My baby is still a couple months from solids but I will get these for when he is ready. Thanks!
