One of the stages that I can remember being most confused and concerned about when my oldest son (who is now 10) was a baby was transitioning to solid food. I was so unsure how to start, when to start, what gear I needed to start and what exactly I should be feeding him. The one thing that I did know for sure was that I wanted him to have real fruits and veggies and not a lot of fillers.
This was such a big step for me that we decided to feed him his first puree at Christmas with our whole family there (I even got him a special Santa bib). He absolutely loved the bright orange carrot puree and went on to be an amazing little eater but I never stopped worrying about what was in the food that I was feeding him or his little brother and sister.
Now when I am working with clients and we are picking out high chairs, bibs and feeding sets I am also really excited to be able to recommend Beech-Nut® Naturals™. Beech-Nut® Naturals™ is a line of baby food purees that is inspired by homemade, made with real fruits and real veggies.
How many times have you been in your grocery store and looked at a label and you weren’t able to pronounce many of the ingredients? With Beech-Nut® Naturals™ that isn’t the case because each jar is made only with simple, 100% natural ingredients.
We love that Beech-Nut® Naturals™ is accessible and available right in our local grocery store and that it is something that parents can easily grab to feed their babies and feel great about it! Beech-Nut® Naturals™ is really simply real food for babies™!
When your doctor advises your baby is ready (typically around 4 months) to start solids you can pick up the Stage 1 which are simple single ingredient jars such as:
- Just Sweet potatoes
- Just Apples
- Just Carrots
- Just Green Beans
- Just Butternut Squash
Once your baby has conquered Stage 1 you can move to the Stage 2 (typically around 6 months) which introduces perfect pairings of two or more foods:
- Just Pear & Blueberry
- Banana Orange Pineapple
- Just Apple & Kale
- Apple & Pumpkin
- Just Sweet Corn & Green Beans
- Just Carrot, Corn & Pumpkin
- Just Spinach, Zucchini & Peas
- Apple, Cinnamon & Granola
