Take the temperature
Store cold foods below 5°C, and when you’re cooking or reheating solid baby food, it should reach 75°C – Rachelle suggests making sure it’s bubbling and steaming hot. Because little mouths are easily burned, it’s safe to let it cool on the bench for a couple of minutes before feeding. If you don’t want to serve a freshly prepared batch of cooked baby food immediately, divide it into small containers and place in the fridge as soon as it stops steaming. And when you’re transporting perishable food to a birthday party or daycare, always use a cooler bag with a frozen block.
