About a month before Jack started solid I started looking for fruits and Veggies that were on major sales. I would buy a big bag and prepare them according to this sites directions. I then put them in the freezer in ice cube trays. When they are frozen I put them in bags and write the the name of the food and the Date that made it. Some foods I only fill the ice cube half because I use them as add ins, like blueberry and broccoli.
Here are some of the reasons I like doing it this way.
- I can prepare just a little bit at a time if needed
- I can make fun combos...ie (jack's fave is 2 peach cubes, 1 blueberry and a little oatmeal)
- Saves me so much money
- Saves me time
- less packaging so it helps conserve
- It makes me feel good knowing exactly what is in his food
And Jack is happy too!!!
