Beech-Nut 100% Natural Baby Food

So a few weeks ago Owen’s doctor gave me the okay to start feeding him some baby food.  I always love this stage of my babies. I love seeing their faces when they have their first bite of food.  Will they like it? Will they grimace?  I love trying out new foods to see what the kids enjoy.  This time around I want to make sure that Owen is getting some of the best foods that I can provide for him.  I want him to have some healthier eating habits than my other two boys. I also had every intention of making my own baby food.  I went back and forth over this and finally decided that I would make sure that the foods that I give to him are healthy and natural.  I will make sure that as he gets older that I provide him with some wonderful meals {not happy meals}!

Well a few weeks before Owen got the okay to eat food, I was contacted by Beech-Nut to sample some of their newest baby foods.  They just launched their newest 100% natural foods. PERFECT!!!! I couldn’t wait for Owen to have his first taste of food.

The samples came in the most beautiful wooden box.  The packaging was beautifully branded and the new jar designs are pretty nice and fancy too.  And they were not sample size at all.  I received four full jars of baby food.  Two in Stage 1 {Just Carrots and Just Honeycrisp Apples} and Two in Stage 2 {Just Spinach, Zucchini & Peas and Beets, Pear & Pomegranate}.

Beech-Nut food for babies is made with natural ingredients. That means no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Beech-Nut takes out everything moms don’t want, and leaves in the essential nutrients that babies need. They use a wonderful new method called gentle cooking™ to make the food.

What is just gentle cooking™?

  1. Close-to-Home Ingredients  – We get the best quality ingredients we can find, staying as close to home as we can but
    going where we need in order to get the best quality.
  2. Cold Puree  – We love food just the way it is, and don’t want to do anything more than what’s necessary.So to be as gentle as possible, we create a puree from raw fruits and vegetables instead of cooking them first in order to avoid cooking nutrients away.
  3. No Artificial Preservatives  – Deaeration means we take the excess air out of the food so the good stuff like nutrients and great taste can stay in the food without adding any kind of preservatives. The good stuff is everything that lets you know this is real food: vibrant color, natural aromas and great flavor.
  4. Gently Cooked  – When we cook our new food for babies, we use indirect heat similar to a double boiler so that none of the flavor or nutrients gets watered down. Cook time varies according to the ingredients; you wouldn’t cook a pear and a sweet potato for the same length of time, and neither would we
  5. Jar  – And finally, the food goes into our BPA-free glass jars

Beach-Nut has 40 delicious new flavors with foods like pomegranate, avocado, papaya and beets. They select only the highest quality varieties of fruits and vegetables, like Honeycrisp apples, Bartlett pears and Haas avocados.

Here are just a few of their newest flavors:
• just honeycrisp apple
• just sugarsnap peas
• just mango, kiwi & papaya
• just mango, apple & avocado
• beets, pear & pomegranate
• just pear, raspberry & asparagus
• just apple & aronia berry
• spinach, zucchini & quinoa

The first one that I gave to Owen was the carrots.  They were so beautiful and bright and I tasted a little bit so I know that they were good too.  Now by looking at the pictures below I can guarantee to you that Owen agreed.  The kid just started eating food and he downed the entire jar!

The next one that I fed to Owen was the just honeycrisp apples.  Again he devoured them!  What can I say my boy loves his food.  I know that I have tried several brands with my other boys but I plan on sticking with Beech-Nut and their 100% natural products. I cannot wait to go shopping for more of their flavors.

The new Beech-Nut line will be available in stores, including Wal-Mart, Kroger, Meijer and Publix, in spring 2014.

Beech-Nut is also working with the Non-GMO Project and they are in the process of seeking verification for all of their products.  I know that this is very important for a lot of families out there.
