If you are making your own baby food, and baby is still only at the tasting stage - storing your prepared food in ice-cube trays can be wasteful, since it is way more than your baby will eat in one sitting.

Look around for some cocktail ice-cube trays (I found mine at the Dollar store).

Depending on the size you find, each cube is only about 1-2 teaspoons - just the right size for a taste!

Then you can use the tray again when your child is older, to make fun ice cube shapes for their drinks!
