Have tried this in food but got no responses, can anyone help?

Ok, so as my username indicates, I am useless at cooking. I have however made pork/apple/onion meatballs for my lo as I want to give the best food possible.

I am planning to store a portion for today and a portion for tomorrow in the fridge in (separate) sealed containers and freeze the rest. I was then going to defrost them in the fridge for 24 hours before cooking as instructed. They are not cooked and will be stored raw. Is this ok? I am not sure on best practice for freezing guidelines and dh is a little nervous of me giving the baby food poisoning.

Please help.

copied from food:

sound ok. Just make sure they are defrosted properly and then piping hot throughout once cooked.

And the other thing to be careful of - you can't freeze things twice without cooking e.g. if you make your meatballs from meat which has been previously frozen, you'd have to cook them first and then freeze. Otherwise, what you are doing is fine.
