    The best way to store food for babies that I found was the ice cube tray. Pureed or mashed veggies placed in the ice cube tray, frozen and then dumped into a freezer bag was wonderful. Take out what you need let it thaw to room temp and baby is ready to eat. Also works for going out of the home. Some divided, covered baby dishes are very portable. Bananas, sweet potato, squash, applesauce, green beans, frozen peas, etc etc etc

    I used a baby food mill, the same kind that my mom had when I was little.
    The only thing that I ground was meat that was too hard to cut into chunks they could self feed.

    We use the ice cube trays then once it's frozen I transfer it to freezer bags. I use one of those handheld drink mixer blenders, namely because I already had it, it's super easy to clean, and it does a pretty good job.

    Any suggestions on how long fruit/veggie purees are good for once frozen in an ice cube tray and placed in a zip-lock bag??

    if you click on the link at the bottom a pdf file with storage guidlines pops up.
    Do you have a deep freeze or just the freezer on top of your fridge?

    We just used our blender and also did the ice cube trays...
    We used ziploc bags because they are BPA free....
