Protect your infants against food-borne illnesses by taking special precautions with the food they eat.

The US National Network for Child Care offers these tips:

  • Keep formula-filled bottles cold until feeding time, and throw out any formula that's left in the bottle after feeding.
  • Cover home-prepared baby food immediately and put it in the refrigerator. You can also freeze it in ice cube trays. Once the food is frozen, put the cubes in a plastic freezer bag to prevent freezer burn, and don't refreeze thawed food.
  • If the food comes from a baby food jar, put the amount to be eaten in a bowl and refrigerate the rest. The refrigerated portion should be eaten within two days.
