As a mom of 4, we’ve gone through our share of baby food. I’d love to tell you I make my own, but with busy schedules and being “mom tired”, there’s no way it was happening. I had to rely on brands like Beech-Nut to do the prep work for me. Since Beech-Nut offers baby food made with real fruits and vegetables, it was just what I was looking for to give me peace of mind and a happy heart. Plus, buying the baby food jars provided me with extra time for cuddles and more important things like making memories and enjoying my children! I will never get that time back!
I was recently asked to host a Beech-Nut Mommy Party. The party started with 10 of my new mommy friends, where we ate appetizers, and swooned over each other’s babies.
Many attendees had questions about the baby food brand, and I was happy to share information with them! Take a look at some interesting Beech-Nut facts:
We tasted a few of the baby foods, played Beech-Nut BINGO and talked about our baby’s current milestones. I love hearing moms support other moms and give judgment-free opinions and tried and true advice.
3 Reasons To Love Beech-Nut Baby Foods
- As mentioned, it’s real food. There’s no added ingredients, and the jars are available in a variety of flavors. Some of our favorites are “Just Carrot, Corn & Pumpkin”, “Mango, Apple & Pineapple”, “Banana, Orange & Pineapple” and all the berry varieties! (Still to this day… read #3 to see why!)
- The food comes in recyclable glass jars! As a teacher, I can name 50 different ways to use these jars. (Never throw them away – donate them to a school or library!)
- The ingredients are simple, and even with older children, I can use the purees in recipes!
We use the baby foods in soups, I hide carrots in spaghetti, I throw berries in smoothies and I put applesauce in pancakes! The recipe for applesauce pancakes below is one of my children’s favorites! I made this at the party and you’d never guess how flavorful they were!
2 cups pancake mix
1 cup Beech-Nut applesauce
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
In a medium bowl, stir all ingredients together with a fork or whisk, until blended.
Heat skillet or griddle to medium heat and brush with vegetable oil or lightly spray with cooking spray.
To make a pancake, pour a little less than 1/4 cup batter onto hot surface. Cook until edges are dry and center is bubbly.
Carefully turn each pancake and cook other side until light golden brown. Top with syrup, jam or just a little butter.
