Disclosure: I received a free sample and a stipend as part of a promotional program with Beech-Nut and MomSelect. All opinions are 100% my own.
While I was pregnant with Kayleigh, I had visions of making baby food at home for her. I wanted to make sure that I knew exactly what was going into her little body. I wanted her to eat fresh foods, and I wanted them to be 100% natural and healthy.
When Kayleigh first started eating solid foods, at around 5 months old, I did make her baby food at home. I steamed and blended up fresh fruits and vegetables for her, which included carrots, peas, green beans, parsnips, apples, and peaches. It went pretty well for a couple of months, and then the brand new Magic Bullet that I had bought died. I was also having a hard time finding the time and energy to make and freeze the food when that point came. I took it as a sign that I should just start buying her organic jarred baby food from the grocery store, and that is what I have been doing ever since.
Beech-Nut recently came out with a new 100% natural baby food, and I was very excited to try it out. When the package arrived from Beech-Nut, I was incredibly impressed. I have never seen a more beautiful presentation in any of the review products I have received. They packaged four of their new 100% natural baby foods in a gorgeous wooden box, with their logo engraved into it.
The top of the box slid out, revealing a card addressed to me inside. I really loved that personal touch.
Inside the box were the four flavors of 100% natural baby food – just spinach, zucchini and peas, just honeycrisp apples, just carrots, and beets, pear & pomegranate.
Immediately upon looking at these jars of food, I could tell they were extremely high quality. The colors of the food were so vibrant, and the food just looked so fresh. It didn’t look like any other jarred baby food I had ever seen before. It looked like something I would have made at home myself.
I am one of those Moms that always tastes a new kind of baby food before feeding it to my baby. I want to know exactly what it tastes like, so I know what’s going on in her mind when she eats it. I have to say, there are a lot of baby foods out that taste gross. They just have this really weird taste to them, and certainly do not taste fresh.
Beech-Nut’s 100% Natural Baby Food tastes AMAZING. They are so crisp, and fresh and full of flavor. Kayleigh (and I) loved them! The difference in the taste and texture of this food from other brands incredible. You can see the difference as soon as you open the jar.
Beech-Nut’s new all natural baby food contains no additives, no preservatives and nothing artificial. They use an innovative technology to create baby food that is unlike anything else on store shelves. Their just gentle cooking™ method ensures the freshness of their fruits and vegetables, without adding water, so their food is never over-processed. Beech-Nut uses only the freshest fruits and vegetables that look, smell and taste exactly like what they are, so moms know exactly what their babies are eating.
