If you’re like me, you’d rather cook and prepare all of your babies food yourself, it makes you feel like a super mum, no tinned, jarred or packet prepared food on my babies shelf in the pantry.
My freezer on the other hand has a couple of Tupperware containers with steamed, mashed sweet potato, zucchini, pumpkin, broccoli and pear and made by moi. All in little cubes, made in my Mumi & Bubi Solids Starter Kit. Every night little J has a mixture of vegetables for his tea that defrost evenly in the microwave.
You get two trays and a recipe booklet in the kit, each tray has 21 holes with a rounded base and close fitting lid. I never get freezer burn on them and due to the portion controlled size as J gets a little older and hungrier I add another cube to his meal. I didn’t use the booklet as I followed a different diet aimed at maximizing the immunity and nervous systems. But thats another story.
I put the trays in the dishwasher and so far so good. Due to their size they can sit on top of other food in the freezer and don’t tip over. You might ask why don’t you just use ice cube trays, well there are a few reasons, firstly you don’t come buy many that have lids. Secondly they all have square bottoms, which makes it really hard to get them out and lastly, 21 holes versus 12 holes.
Free from BPA. (Bisphenol A is used in the production of epoxy resins and
polycarbonate plastics) The trays are made from polypropylene and, if you look on the back, you will see the recycling symbol with the number 5 "PP"
which indicates polypropylene. The trays are made from new material, not recycled material as sometimes can be the case with polypropylene products.
Overall - They have defiantly made meal time at our house quicker and easier and kept us making his food for longer.
Rating - 9/10
Available - in Safeway among other retailers in Australia.
