Freezing Foods

I'm looking to make a couple of rice/meat/veggie dishes for DD... but not puree... can I freeze these just the same? How long would they last? Whats the best method of freezing something for baby thats not puree (since I won't be using ice cube trays or the like...)

How would I dethaw it?? lol... We don't do a lot of freezing in our home obviously.....

Re: Freezing Foods

I would think anything that would be good to freeze for a family would be fine for the baby- though I tended to use my baby's stuff up sooner as I know the nutritional value goes down when things are in the freezer for a while. Could you just freeze the portions in small disposible tupperware type containers? Then pull out a serving the night before you want to use it and stick it in the fridge?

Hmmm.... that is one of those questions that I think different folks would have different opinions on. We are trying to get away from plastic, especially in the microwave, but I haven't found a better option for freezing. What I wrote above is what I would be comfortable with, but each to their own on plastic safety issues!
