How to store baby food safely with OXO Tot

As a parent, being prepared is worth its weight in gold! The different storage containers from OXO Tot mean you have everything you need to keep your homemade baby food safe and secure.

There's nothing more frustrating than taking a meal you've prepared with love out of the fridge and then realizing that it smells a bit odd. You smell again and indeed: spoiled... Not only can you throw the food you prepared so carefully into the trash, but now you have to quickly whip up something else.

When your baby is ready for solid food, you don't want to spend hours in the kitchen. And once you've prepared some meals, you want them to last as long as possible. How can you store home-cooked meals safely?

How can you keep food safe and secure?

Generally speaking, baby food containers should be airtight, shatterproof and leakproof. And the fact that they can be cleaned in the dishwasher is, just another plus point!

Always look for containers that seal properly, are made from safe materials and that don't leak when you take them out and about with you in your nappy bag. Breast milk and baby food can also be frozen, so check if you can put the containers in the freezer. Storage boxes that are dishwasher-, freezer- and microwave-safe are always a good idea.

How do I know if my containers are made from safe material? If your storage containers are plastic, check that the plastic is free from BPA (Bisphenol A), phthalates and PVC. If you want to be on the safe side, glass storage containers are a perfect choice.
