A great way to stock up!

A great way to stock up on baby food - cook a large amount and freeze portions. Once your baby's eating foods with more texture, you could put any healthy leftovers from the family meal into a blender and blend to a lumpy pulp.

A great way to stock up: Video transcript

  • cook a large amount
  • let it cool a bit
  • make it into a purée (with a blender, a mouli, or a sieve)
  • once your baby's eating foods with more texture, you could put any healthy leftovers from the family meal into a blender and blend to a lumpy pulp. Try blending left over meat or lentils, potato or kūmara and green vegetables – remember not to add salt or sugar to your baby’s meal
  • freeze portions in ice-cube trays or other food-friendly containers
  • make several trays at a time so you have less preparation to do
  • once the cubes are frozen, you can put them into freezer bags (then you can use the trays for the next batch of food)
  • make sure you label and date the freezer bags
  • use the frozen cubes over the next 3-4 weeks
  • food can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days
