Cute, convenient, and cost-effective baby food containers made of glass? One of these things doesn’t belong. When it comes to anything baby related, “cost-effective” typically goes out the window, but not in this case.
If you are like me and try to use as little plastic as possible, you will appreciate a good, sturdy glass container for your baby food. There are some great containers out there, but they can be pricey and little on the small side. I have a set of the 4-ounce Wean Green Wean cube containers, which I love. But as my daughter got older, I needed something bigger to hold her homemade meals. Also, I didn’t want to spend another $20 on a set of four glass containers.
On a trip to Target, I came across a set of four Ball 8-ounce jam jars . The jars only cost $5.49, so I decided to give them try along with the reusable lids for $2.99. My main concern was if they would fit my Kiinde bottle warmer. To my delight, they fit perfectly, with not an inch to spare. Also, I couldn’t help but love the fruit embossment as an added touch of cuteness.
These jars fit easily in my diaper bag and because they are canning jars, they can be put in the freezer and heated without worry. Another must have — the reusable plastic lids offer a secure, leak-proof fit. I have not have any mishaps or leaks with these lids when securely tightened. Ball also has a set of four 4-ounce jars ($5.49) that can be used for baby food as well.
