    Hi Sarah

    I don't have any personal experience but my sister in law weaned her wee boy a couple of months back and does what you are suggesting - she steams the veg then purees/mashes it and freezes it in ice cube trays (once they're frozen she decants them into freezer bags so they are sealed). I think most of the nutrients are retained when you freeze and will save so much time rather than having to cook everything for each meal!

    Hope this helps a little

    Can I ask, why do people freeze food in an ice cube tray frst, why not straight into a freezer bag?? Or is that a stupid question? :oops:

    Sami - yeah it's like what Kim said - it's easier to measure out meals and I think a lot quicker to defrost? As my nephew is now 9 months old I think my sis in law sometimes mixes the cubes as well after they've defrosted so she can vary it like carrot and sweet potato then another time carrot and brocolli etc.

    LOL - I'm imagining now what my freezer will look like in months to come! Imagine having people round and someone getting a drink having had a couple and not realising that these wicked looking ice cubes are really little one's food! Hmmm vodka and coke with brocolli ice cubes :D
