Recently my daughter started eating baby food. I wanted something very easy for her to start with that was not full of bad ingredients. I had signed up for e-mails from Beech Nut and when they sent some coupons I decided to give them a try first.
The first thing I did was look at the ingredients. All of the Beech Nut baby foods say they are prepared with the fruit or vegetable and water that is necessary for preparation. The only sugar is the natural sugar from the food. That was very nice to see!
We have started my daughter out on the vegetables first and her favorite is butternut squash. I always try each new thing and the foods are actually not bad. They are a little bland though.
The jars are very easy to use. They come in 2.5oz. jars for stage 1 foods. My daughter sometimes only eats half of the jar so I am able to put the rest into the refrigerator for the next day.
I only plan on giving her the plain fruits and vegetables and I am staying away from the meats. For some reason that just freaks me out! In a few months I am going to start making her baby food but for right now this is working great for us. The jars are very inexpensive and I never have to wonder what the ingredients might be. I feel safe giving my daughter this baby food.
