Expert Tips 
  • Store zucchini in a paper bag in the fridge to keep fresh.
  • If you don’t want to boil everything in a pot, you can also use a steamer basket or slow cooker to cook down the vegetables and fruit.
  • Cut the vegetables and fruit into small pieces to help them cook down more quickly.
  • If you plan to use this entire batch of zucchini baby food within 1 week, you can transfer the entire puree into one airtight container and place it in the fridge. Then, just scoop out individual servings when you’re ready to feed your baby.
