Now that my baby is 19 months old, he’s mostly eating regular food. Lots of noodles, grilled cheese sandwiches, yogurt, but still not a lot of fruits and veggies on their own. There’s just something about the texture of some fruits and veggies that sometimes creates pushback. That’s why we still turn to the Beech-Nut® Naturals™ line of baby food purees to get him to eat those much needed good-for-you foods.
Beech-Nut® Naturals™ is real food for babies™ that’s simply prepared with real ingredients. Made with real fruits and vegetables, just like you would use at home, it’s a line of products that’s always 100% natural, non-GMO, with nothing artificial, and containing only ingredients that you can pronounce. There’s also a line of USDA-certified organic flavors.
Found in many grocery stores, we usually grab a few jars at our local Schnuck’s in the baby food aisle, there are many different flavors to choose from. We’re trying to introduce our little guy to some new flavors, while also making sure he has what’s familiar, too.
Apples, for instance, are always a good choice. I love that while Beech-Nut® Naturals™ has an apple only version, using fresh apples, they also mix apples with new flavors like kale and pumpkin.
We like to keep many different flavors on hand, because we never know what kind of mood he’ll be in that day. Not to mention, at this age, tastes can change from hour to hour. At lunchtime we love the Butternut Squash flavor, but by dinnertime we want nothing to do with it. Going with the flow goes with the territory of toddler-hood. Check out all of the flavor combos here on their site!
Our little guy is also at the age where he likes to feed himself. Luckily, Beech-Nut® Naturals™ is a thicker puree, so he gets more in his mouth. Though the mess is also half the fun.
Beech-Nut is a small company in upstate New York with 300 employees who are passionate about making real food for babies. With a line created with input from moms and dads, the people behind Beech-Nut went into homes and sat in everyday kitchens to learn about how parents feed their babies. The result is a baby food made with real fruits and vegetables that’s simply prepared with real ingredients.
It’s easy to find Beech-Nut® Naturals™ in a store near you. Just look for the iconic green cap!
