  • Check food isn’t too hot before feeding by testing the temperature on the inside of your wrist. It should be served at body temperature – so it shouldn’t feel either hot or cold on your skin.
  • Freeze excess food in ice cube trays, covered with a lid or cling film, and sealed in a plastic bag – write the date on the bag. Purées can be kept frozen for up to 1 month.
