  • Buy yourself a good canning book. You should be able to make large batches of things up and then can them in jelly jars and put on the shelf. Personally at 7 months mine was eating lots of food straight off the table.

  • Freeze it in ice cube trays; freeze the cubes in a wax bag in a big zipper bag
