Keeping Your Baby’s Food Warm While On-The-Go

My daughter is 1, she eats a combination of pureed and finger food. When we eat out, I will prepare homemade baby food for her. I’m typical Asian and I prefer warm food. Therefore, I try to serve my daughter warm food when I can. I keep her food in Zojirushi Stainless Steel Food Jar. I bought a small one (11.8 ounce) from amazon.com. It’s a fantastic product because it keeps food hot for 3-4 hours! I originally bought the Thermos Foogo Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Food Jar. I filled it with boiling hot water, closed the jar and checked in 3 hours, the water became lukewarm… therefore, I returned the product.
Keep in mind that the fuller you fill the jar, the better it retains the heat. I don’t fill up the jar because my daughter eats only 5-6 ounce of food. Therefore, I will warm up the jar first by pouring some hot water into the jar, let it sit for 1 minute, empty the jar, and put food right in. It helps retain the heat of smaller amount of food.
