how long do you save baby food?

my daughter only eats about half a jar during a sitting & I usually end up throwing it away, because I hate givng her the same thing twice in one day. So it seems like such a big waste of food!

  • Put half in a bowl and feed that to her. Put the half left in the jar in the fridge. It will be fine for up to 48 hours (some is the label).

    Don't feed from the jar, put the jar back in the fridge then feed from jar again. Bacteria can be introduced to the food that way and she could get sick (not likely, but it's a preventative measure to use the bowl)
