Introducing solids to your young baby is exciting. It’s also incredibly messy. Mums and Dads everwhere are releasing their inner Nigella Lawson or Jamie Oliver as fresh produce is gathered and pureed… that’s the easy part. How to store the morsels of fine cuisine is a quandary most parents find themselves in when crossing this major milestone and this innovative product from Miinki Moop is providing the solution!
Qubies are unique in design. Unlike a regular icecube tray, the dividers are in the lid, minimising the awful mess that pouring puree into any tiny receptacle creates.A single Qubies tray creates seven 30ml portions of food – perfect when starting out on solids and great for mixing and matching when feeling more confident!
Qubies are so easy to use it’s ridiculous – pour, freeze, divide and store in the Qubies container (they have an air-tight lid so no freezer burn) or if you want to stockpile, freeze then divide and put in snaplock bags or a freezer-safe container. The trays are made from a non-stick silicon and the clean up needn’t be a drama either as they’re dishwasher safe!
Long gone are the days of introducing solids with my kidlets but I still think these would be useful in my own kitchen for lemon juice (I always need lemon juice and never have lemons … one day I’ll buy a tree), berries and stewed fruits . It’s always great when there’s a product that will still be useful long after it’s served it’s primary purpose and Qubies Baby Food trays are exactly that!
Qubies are an Australian product and come in two colours – aqua and lime. They are available online at their own website priced at $16.95. Postage in Australia for 1-4 trays is $9.50 and international shipping is available.
