My youngest just turned a year old, but she can eat my four year old under the table! Finley LOVES food, so naturally I want to steer her in the right direction by feeding her fruits, veggies, and just whole foods in general. I know she will go through pickier stages as she grows but as long as I am consistent, I know she will grow up with healthy eating habits that will benefit her all of her life.

We are loving Beech Nut Naturals because they are gently cooked to help maintain the vibrant color and delicious flavor that the fruits and veggies originated with. Most importantly, their gentle cooking methods also preserve the nutrients in the food!
The fruits and veggies used in Beech Nut product are all non GMO certified which really puts me at ease, as a mom who wants to be sure her kids are getting the best of the best. You can also pick up Beech Nut Naturals in organic varieties!
Finley is pretty much out of the baby food stage of her life. Even when she was young enough, we practiced baby led weaning so she didn’t get strictly purees. Purees do have their place in baby led weaning though! I feel that offering a variety of textures as well as flavors will do your child a world of good.
Yes, Finley has 5 teeth and is fully capable of eating a ‘grown up’ meal, she also loves to eat soft foods and purees! She dove right into this jar of banana, orange and pineapple by Beech Nut Naturals. I gave it a small taste too and it was pretty yummy! Almost tasted like a smoothie.
On top of the pureed baby food, we grabbed a box of their snack bars. I like to keep these in our diaper bag for on the go. If you are a parent, I’m sure you know the importance of having a snack or two on you in case of ’emergency’. Sometimes we go out to eat and the kids don’t understand that they have to wait on their food. That’s where Beech Nut snack bars come to the rescue! They are delicious and just filling enough to keep the kids occupied but not so filling that they ruin the meal.
I love having some Beech Nut Naturals products around the house both for on the go and to keep things interesting at meal times for my girl. She also just started figuring out how to use utensils and having a delicious pureed snack is the perfect practice!
