Why I Choose Beech-Nut® Naturals™ for My Baby's Solid Foods

I still can't believe how big my Harmony is growing up to be! Honestly, where has the time gone! I remember when she was just turning 4-months-old and her pediatrician told us it was time to start introducing Stage 1 baby foods and my eyes began to swell up with tears of joy. I knew from there that her appetite had been growing to the extreme because breastfeeding her would not hold her through her feeding time and I could no longer keep up with her growing appetite. So when the pediatrician suggested introducing her to baby foods I knew exactly what brand I would choose: Beech-Nut® Naturals™!

My family and Beech-Nut® Naturals™ go way back ever since having my first daughter, Heaven. I remember like it was yesterday… I had just got hired for my supposedly "dream" job as a junior graphic designer at Howard University and Heaven was only 4 months old at the time. Since I went back to work, I would have to leave Heaven with her grandmother during the day but I would get multiple text messages saying that she would refuse to eat the foods we blended up for her the night before. All she wanted was a bottle of milk, which we were trying our best to get her to eat more solid foods but honestly, there was no real luck trying to stop her from drinking up all the milk. Not too long after, I came across Beech-Nut® Naturals™ in the grocery store and loved that they were made with real ingredients, simply prepared.

Fast forward to being a new mom all over again and I knew exactly what to get Harmony once she was ready to eat her solid foods at her 4-month old milestone. Of course, how could I forget the distinctive shape of the Beech-Nut® Naturals™ “honeypot” jar and the color green used on the cap.

What is Beech-Nut® Naturals™ and Organics?

Beech-Nut® Naturals™ is a line of baby food purées by a small company in upstate New York with 300 employees who are passionate about making real food for babies. Specifically, the Beech-Nut® Naturals™ line of jar purees was created with input from moms and dads. Beech-Nut went into homes and sat in kitchens to learn about how they feed their babies. And just like their tagline says… Beech-Nut® Naturals™ is real food for babies™.

So why do I choose Beech-Nut® Naturals™ for my baby?!

1. Beech-Nut® Naturals™ and Organics are made with real ingredients!

I love that Beech-Nut® Naturals™ is always 100% natural with non-GMO and of course always available in organic for your little ones. They are made with only ingredients a baby could pronounce and nothing more than what you see on the jar.

2. They are Simply Prepared

Another reason why I choose Beech-Nut® Naturals™ is that they are simply prepared. They are pureed cold to protect flavor & nutrients as well as being gently cooked with indirect heat.

3. Beech-Nut® Naturals™ are perfect real foods for my growing Harmony through all stages!

I love that Beech-Nut® Naturals™ start your little ones off at 4 months with Stage 1 baby foods. Stage 1 baby foods are great first foods for starting solids. As the pediatrician suggested, we started Harmony off with vegetables and after a couple of feedings, we would introduce the fruits which she took to very fast. The Stage 1 Just Sweet Potatoes, Just Butternut Squash, Just Apples, and the Bananas were Harmonies favorite from the Stage 1 Beech-Nut® Naturals™ baby food.

Once Harmony entered into her 6-month milestone, we then moved into introducing her to the Beech-Nut® Naturals™ Stage 2 baby food jars. The Beech-Nut® Naturals™Stage 2 baby foods are the perfect way to introduce textures and flavors.

Her schedule now with her eating 3 jars a day, we tend to start her breakfast meals off with fruity baby jar such as the Stage 2 Banana, Orange, Pineapple jar, or the Apple, Cinnamon & Granola jar and also the Just Apple & Kale jar or Just Pear & Blueberry jars.

For lunch, she loves to eat the Just Carrot, Corn & Pumpkin, or even the Apple & Pumpkin. Then for her dinner feedings, we love to change up the flavors again with Just Spinach, Zucchini & Peas or even the Just Sweet Corn & Green Beans.

I would highly recommend Beech-Nut® Naturals™ for all new moms and their babies first solid foods. For my growing family, there is nothing better than real food for babies by Beech-Nut® Naturals™.
