Five Practical Uses for Baby Food Containers

If you have a baby currently eating baby food, you probably find yourself staring everyday at empty baby food containers. This was the case when my youngest was eating baby food and I can’t tell you how guilty I felt every time I threw one away in the garbage. After a while I started brain storming uses for all of these baby food containers.

Here’s my list of uses for baby food containers: 

1. Around the kitchen: they make the perfect Jello or pudding mold and are good for holding spices. 

2. They are perfect lunchbox add on: They are the perfect size for holding salsa, salad dressing, ketchup, barbecue sauce, hummus, raisins, peanut butter, jelly, yogurt, nuts, etc. 

3. They make a great container to take snacks on the go with you: gold fish, crackers, M&M’s, small fruits such as blueberries, raspberries, etc. Not a snack but they hold formula and baby cereal too. 

4. Around the home and office: Use them to hold buttons, sewing notions, beads or other small craft items, paper clips and rubber bands. 

5. Around the workshop: They are good for holding nuts, bolts, and drill bits.

You don’t have to pay extra for those “on-the-go packs.” All you need to do is re-purpose any small container you may already have and let imagination be your friend.
