  • My favorite website while making home made baby food was SO HELPFUL!! Here is some info...

    How long will baby food [cubes] keep in the freezer & refrigerator?
    For optimal quality and nutrient retention, keep frozen baby food cubes in the freezer for a maximum of 3 months.
    Baby food cubes are safe to remain in the freezer from 3 to 6 months. Using baby food cubes within 1 month to 3 months is really more prudent. Due to the amount of water crystals that tend to build up with baby food purees, and due to the fact that nutrients may leach/evaporate upon thawing because of the water crystals, it is more prudent to use your frozen baby foods cubes as soon as possible - 3 months of storage tops. We always recommend using within 1 month if at all possible.

  • If it's frozen and kept sealed, it's good for 3 months.
