Real food for babies, inspired by homemade

Once babies are beyond just breast milk and formula, they need food. Real healthy nutritious food, to help their little bodies and palates grow. Making fresh homemade baby food is the best, but sometimes you are not able to get the best ingredients, or find the time to make homemade baby food. So, as a busy mom I am always on the lookout for the next best thing, when feeding my baby. Real food for babies, inspired by homemade.

Beech-Nut real baby food

Three generations eating Beech-Nut baby food

Beech-Nut baby food has been around for over 100 years. My mom was raised eating it, I even ate their baby food as a baby, so it only makes since that my daughter eats Beech-Nut baby food too. Over time, the product has changed a bit, for the better. The jars have a more modern sleek look to them, they are working with the Non-GMO Project and seeking verification for all Beech-Nut products, and they have some amazing organic flavor combinations, that my daughter loves.

Recently, a few popular baby food brands have come under fire for not labeling their foods properly and replacing nutritious veggie items with apple, pear or water. So, Beech-Nut is the first baby food brand to share it all, they let you know the percentage of each ingredient in all of their foods, just click on the flavors on the Beech-Nut web page to know the truth!

Beech-Nut, not just for babies

I had an opportunity to sit down and have a meal with Beech-Nut at the Mom 2.0 conference, and at the end we were told all of our dishes used Beech-Nut baby food as one of the ingredients. Lets just say the food was amazing, and I want to share my favorite two dishes, with you.
