Or we can store it in the freezer for up to 1 month dated if you’re storing it for longer ( Fresh preparation is suggested). It’s best to defrost baby food overnight in the fridge and then could be consumed the next day.

Flexible storage pods or ice cube trays could be used; we need to ensure the containers could be sealed.
