real food for babies {Beech-Nut}

This post is part of a sponsored campaign with Beech-Nut and MomSelect.

When my daughter was an infant, 7 years ago, there were not as many options in the baby food aisle.  Full of preservatives and artificial who-knows-whats, the jarred “foods” were quite questionable and therefore undesirable.  Making your own was really only the natural way to go.  With my second, I’ve made 75% of his from scratch, but there are days when I just need a more convenient option. Some days the freezer is baby-food-bare and there is no time to puree.  Welcome to a new kind of Beech-Nut, where “homemade is our inspiration”.

Beech-Nut has made great-tasting infant and toddler food for over 75 years, a trusted brand for sure.  The brand has now released a line of 100% natural baby food inspired by homemade traditions.  What’s in the jar is simply real, whole fruits and vegetables and nothing else.  Yum! With over 40 fresh new flavors, like Just Honey Crisp Apple and Just Bartlett Pears, and delicious combinations like Beets, Pear & Pomegranate and Just Pear, Raspberry & Asparagus, there’s something for every palate.

My son is 14 months now and is starting to spoon feed himself.  It’s always difficult for me to hand the spoon over because I really dislike a sticky food mess, but c’est la vie, no?

He’s actually doing a great job… yet another sign that my baby is growing up!

Gabriel tends to prefer single ingredient purees.  He has a very discerning palate and it is so humorous to watch him smack his tongue around as he decides whether he likes a flavor or not.  The problem with single ingredient baby food is that they are stage 1 and sooooo thin it’s ridiculous.  He can’t keep it on the spoon.  The Beech-Nut purees have a better texture, easy for very small babies yet more palatable for older babes (and easier to scoop).

Look at the determination and focus!!

I’ve always lived by a simple rule, if I won’t eat it, I won’t feed it to my baby (okay, besides formula).  I taste all of his baby food for quality assurance.  The new line of Beech-Nut baby foods are absolutely delicious and you can taste the fresh, all natural fruits and vegetables, nothing else.  Good job, Beech-Nut!

    A few years ago, my two little daughters were still babies. And like you, I did not just want to feed them jarred food. I pretty much went the home made baby food way all those years. But this Beach-Nut food looks pretty good. They never sold it at my local supermarket. I did not even know it existed. If I could go back in time, I would not hesitate to try it. It looks really nutricious!

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
