Must Have For Mums - Ice Cube Trays

Ice cube trays are the greatest thing ever for a busy parent who has a hungry child. Some days just flash right past you and before you know it, dinner time is here. Ice cube trays in your freezer are brilliant and will save you so much hassle.

So what am I talking about, you ask? Well if you a simple ice cube tray then stop wasting it on frozen water you will probably only put in a drink in the summer time! When your child isn't around, is in bed or when you have the time just start cooking some vegetables on their own. You can cook some carrot in one pot and potato in the other then tomorrow perhaps do peas or lentils. You can then pureĆ© or mash these up and put each vegetable in their own separate cubes. Once they are frozen all you have to do is squeeze one of each vegetable cube out, defrost them and either leave it as an all veggie meal or you can add some cooked meat that perhaps you are currently making for the adults and just mash/blend this in with the ready vegetables. I find the silicone trays to work real well as it's easy to pop the food out into a bowl compared to the plastic ones where you have to knock them about and you may end up with a veggie you didn't want popping out! And remember you don't have to buy one that say "baby" on them, any ice tray will do the trick!
