Tips for Making Banana Puree:
- Ensure proper storage of your baby’s food between feedings. I use 4-ounce mason jars for refrigeration and do not store them for more than 4-5 days.
- I place baby food in sealed bags and lay them flat to freeze. This method keeps the food fresh for up to 3 months. You can also use child-safe airtight containers for both the fridge and freezer.
- Instead of using water, you can opt for formula or breast milk as a substitute.
