The Best Meal Prep Container Reviews and Advice

Baby Food Container Reviews and Advise

For many of us it may be a daunting idea to imagine preparing healthy homemade purees and meal prepping for babies. It really is doable though and well worth the effort as firstly new parents will know exactly what goes into their baby’s food – no need to worry about additives, preservatives and who knows what else that is in store bought meals. Secondly, it is much, much cheaper. In our personal experience it only requires an efficient blender and baby size meal storage containers to start making and storing homemade, healthy baby food.

Below we have ranked the best baby food storage containers by size. We have only taken into consideration baby food storage containers that are BPA and toxin free as we want nothing but healthy, safe things for your and our own babies!


Baby Food Freezer Trays – 3/4 oz – 1.5 oz





OXO Tot Baby Food Freezer Tray with Protective Cover, 1 oz  $ 4.4 / 5
 Silicone Baby Food Freezer Tray with Clip-on Lid by WeeSprout, 1.5 oz  $$ 4.8 / 5
Mumi&Bubi Solids Starter Kit, Baby Food Freezer Storage Trays, 1 oz $$$ 4.4 / 5
Kid Simple Solids Starter Kit, comparable to Mumi&bubi, 1 oz $$ 3.8 / 5
Silicone Food Storage Container Tray for Baby, 2.5oz, 2 pack $ 4.7 / 5


These trays are very handy for freezing baby food and one 1 oz cube as a serving size is perfect for introducing solids to your baby. A regular ice cube tray would work just as well but these here we recommend because each one comes with a lid to protect the food. It is easy enough to pop out however many servings you need, or I used to pop all out few days after I had frozen them and store the cubes in bigger freezer containers or just plastic freezer bags. This way the trays were available again for a new batch of homemade baby food. Please read on for detailed reviews:

OXO Tot Baby Food Freezer Tray

OXO makes quality meal prep containers and OXO Tot Baby Food Freezer Tray is no exception. It is sturdy, BPA free and will make baby food meal prepping a breeze. The tray comes with a protective lid which slides on/off the tray easily. It is easy to pop a baby food cube out by pushing on either end of the cube so that the cube sort of slides up and out. If you want to pop all cubes out at once, it is easy after letting the tray sit on the counter for a few minutes and then by holding the tray with both hands, twisting your hands to opposite directions. This motion will pop the cubes out so that they can be stored in another container or thawed.

WeeSprout Silicone Baby Food Freezer Tray

This versatile, highly rated food-grade WeeSprout Silicone Tray also comes with clip-on lid. Both the tray and the lid are BPA and toxin free and can be washed in the dishwasher. One cube can hold up to 1.5 oz but 1 oz has been marked so that a smaller serving size can be made. A handy plus about this WeeSprout tray is that after it is no longer needed for baby food storage it can be used for baking (microwave and oven safe up to 425 F) or as a mold for example for homemade popsicles – yum!. The tray also has lifetime warranty, which is beyond awesome! In our household this tray gets six stars!

Mumi&Bubi Baby Solids Starter Kit, Food Freezer Storage Tray

This Mumi&Bubi tray set is one of the perfect beginner ones to get started on the journey of preparing homemade baby food. It  is a pack of two trays+lids with total capacity of 42 one oz cubes. Safety has been thought of with BPA and toxin free product. A handy bonus is the e-guide that is included which gives details on 27 handy recipes. It doesn’t get easier than this! Naturally after the trays are not needed for baby food anymore, they can be re-purposed to ice trays, freezing fresh herbs in olive oil (are you doing this yet? If not, you should as it will bring your meal prepping to a whole new level!) and so on.

Kid Simple Solids Starter Kit

The Kid Simple Solids Starter Kit is advertised as very similar to the above Mumi&Bubi starter set at a lower price point. This set gets 3.8 out of 5 starts so it is still quite highly rated by buyers and for the price and capacity, it is definitely recommended by us as a handy starter kit for homemade baby food prepping. Included in the set are two trays with lids to protect your baby’s food and the trays hold 42 cubes in total.

Suntake Silicone Food Storage Containers for Baby & Toddler – 2 Pack

For those of us who are needing baby food freezer trays that hold a bit more food, this Suntake Silicone Food Storage Container Tray is the set! Great value for money in our opinion as this food grade silicone tray is a set of 2 trays+lids with 2.5 oz capacity per cube. As we’ve mentioned above, a definite plus to a silicone tray is all the possibilities in which you can re-use the trays after you no longer need them for baby food prepping.

Handy Tip! As with everything, some users of each and every one of the above baby food trays we wholeheartedly recommend have received negative comments and experiences. These baby food storage trays can definitely crack if bent too hard right after removing the tray from the freezer – we feel that this is the case with any tray or container straight out of the freezer! Thus we recommend to leave the tray sitting on the counter for a few minutes before trying to remove the cubes.
