Great as baby food jars,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bormioli Rocco Quattro Stagioni 8 1/2 Ounce Canning Jar, Set of 12 (Kitchen)
I purchased these jars because I decided to make my own baby food and wanted to store the food in glass rather than plastic Tupperware. These are wonderful. I love the one piece lids as well! Everyone always comments on how beautiful the jars are when they see me feeding my son with them.

Are the lid backs BPA-free??

I don't see anything here on Amazon stating that the lids are BPA free however I searched and found several sites claiming that the lids are indeed BPA free.
Hope that helps!

Hi, are you storing them in the freezer or just at the room temperature after you sterilize them and fill them with the baby food? Want to buy these too, but worried if its safe to make your own preserves for baby, everywhere I look they write about freezing home-made baby food, but here again comes the question of whether these jars are suitable for freezing. Thanks.

I have not used these jars for freezing the baby food.
I would freeze purees in baby food trays and then pop the cubes into a ziplock bag and store that way in the freezer. As my son got older and transitioned out of purees I would make his food (usually some combination of chopped up veggies/meat/rice) and ball it up in golf ball sized balls and freeze on a cookie tray. Once frozen I would store the balls again in a ziplock bag. The jars come into play when I would take a cube or ball out of the freezer to heat it for serving, or I would allow the food to thaw in the jar in the fridge, depending on how much time I had.
If someone is able to make food often enough you could skip the freezing step and store the food in the fridge in the jar.
If you did want to put the jars in the freezer they do seem fairly sturdy and I imagine that they would be fine. I just haven't done it myself.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful!
