This is a great tip for baby food. I learned this from my Mom when I was pregnant with our first child. We bought squash and carrots. We cooked them till soft, then ran through a food processor or you could use a blender. Then, freeze in ice cube trays. After they are frozen, pop them out and put in baggies. When it is feeding time, pull out a cube and microwave till it gets to right temp. Its natural, no preservative baby food for pennies! You could do this with many veggies or probably even fruit. It was so much cheaper than those jars! Especially in the Fall when you can buy from all of the wonderful farmers market stands!

My son is just now starting to eat baby food. I am making my own but unsure how I should freeze it. I have been placing it in freezer bags but have noticed that other mothers have mentioned they put them in ice cube trays. Do you keep them in the ice cube trays or once it is frozen do you place it in bags. If any other advice can be given I would love to hear it.

If freezing in cubes, freeze solid then pop out and place in bag.

Hi Lisa -
I did this with all sorts of different foods for my son - and still do (he is 2.5) - I put them in the trays, covered it with the press and seal freezer wrap, and then when they were frozen solid, I would put them into ziplock bags. I labeled the bags for each food - and when it was gone, kept the empty bag in the freezer and just refilled it with another batch.

Hi Lisa
When my daughter was young I made her food also-I did use ice cube trays. I would leave it just long enough to get hard and then remove it placing it in quart size freezer bags. When I wanted some food I could take out however many cubes I wanted and leave the rest frozen!
