If necessary, you can dilute the food with water or milk, put the food into ice and freeze it in a plate, and then put it into a cold bag for storage. Food for children under 1 year old should not be added with condiments.
Shop baby food on the market:
Bottled, canned or packaged baby food is also useful for you, especially when you are away or in a hurry. When purchasing, please read the instructions on the package carefully, and pay attention to the products made of pure fruits or vegetables, so as to ensure that your baby can not only eat enough and nutritious food, but also eat less refined starch.
If you want to store some commercially available food, please don’t buy the food marked with sugar and salt, which means that water is the main ingredient, and the food may not be as nutritious as the self-made food. Check the effective date and packaging of the food on sale.
