Tips for Making Strawberry Puree:
- It’s important to store your baby food correctly to ensure its freshness and safety for future use. A good storage option for fridge storage is a 4-ounce mason jar. However, it’s crucial not to keep them in the fridge for more than 4-5 days.

- I prefer to freeze baby food in sealed baggies, laid flat for space efficiency, and it can stay fresh for up to 3 months. Alternatively, child-safe airtight containers can be used for both fridge and freezer storage.

- Initially, the strawberry baby food may appear thin but thickens upon chilling. To achieve the best consistency, stir the food before serving.
- While removing the pulp from the strawberry baby food is unnecessary, doing so can result in a smoother texture, which may be easier for your child to consume and adjust to.
- In place of water, you can use formula or breast milk.
