Homemade Baby Food

Keep fresh portions in an airtight container in the fridge for 1–2 days. Purées can be portioned and frozen in freezer-safe containers for up to two months. (Don’t forget to add a label with the date and ingredients). Defrost portions in the fridge overnight in an airtight container, and gently heat and cool to a safe temperature before serving. Never refreeze thawed portions.
