Can canned vegetables be frozen?

after opening and transferring to a different container?
Baby lyric is eating food now and I just don't have time to prepare finger foods for her. I leave home 2 hours before my shift starts because I walk a mile to the daycare and then a few more blocks to the bus. Of course the bus schedule is iffy and it takes 3 times longer riding the bus than just driving straight there with all the stop and go. Then after work it's home on the bus and getting the kids and another mile walk home so we get there about an hour and a half after I finish. So I am out of the house for about 12 hours a day. The time at home is spent getting ready to leave or getting ready for bed.
So after all that I still want the baby to get better food than just cheerios. Canned veggies are not my 1st choice but washing. peeling, cooking, dicing, and storing fresh veggies is not really doable.
So I need some ideas to have ready to eat portions of finger foods for her with very minimal time to prepare. Buying the individual gerber diced stuff is not an option. I have 8 2.5 oz containers with lids. Perfect baby portion size. I tried opening a can and saving the rest for later but she can't eat a whole can in 3 days(my limit on any open food in the fridge). Plus it doesn't give any variety.

Yes they can. Froze veggies would be better, less salt.

HMMM? So maybe get some frozen veggies and just take a few out as needed? Or put them in the containers while still frozen with a drop of water and pull it out an nuke it as needed. Frozen is better than canned in nutrients nad flavor!

Ok problem solved. No further responses needed LOL!

I had to throw this in there . . .

You can freeze in ice cube trays and then pop the frozen cubes in different bags. That way it is easy to see if you need to make anything else to replenish your stock and you can have a really wide variety.

I keep frozen veggies in the freezer bags and just take out what I want when I want it.

I do prefer canned green beans and my DD prefers those as well. I prefer canned corn, but she likes frozen just as well. Everything else, I just buy the frozen bags.
