There are a lot of things I planned to do with baby Juliza. Breastfeeding, for one. That plan has worked out thus far. But I also planned to use reusable diapers. That one hasn’t worked out so well. Another plan I have for when she starts eating food is to make my own baby food. She just turned 3 months old, so that is still a little ways off, but I’m already thinking about it. I have all these grandiose ideas about how I will make all her meals from scratch with nothing but fresh, whole ingredients. ALL of them.
Of course, the reality check in the back of my mind knows that it’s unlikely I’ll make all her food. Because there are barely enough hours in the day as it is. And while I’d love to buy only organic baby food in those moments when I do go the store-bought route, that can get pricey. So when Walmart asked me to sample some new food from Beech Nut that meets me in the middle, I had to try it.
Beech-Nut’s new “Real Food for Babies” is a line of baby food that contains exactly what the name implies: real food. No preservatives. No artificial colors. No added flavors. Just real, whole foods like fruit and veggies. For example, the carrots are called “just carrots”, and that is quite literally the only ingredient in the jar.
Take a quick look at this video for a sneak peek at baby Juliza in action and what my older daughter thinks of the Beech Nut products:
We actually tried all four of the options. Of course, our more mature palates are used to added salt and sugar, particularly when it comes to veggies, but these were still really good. The beets, pear and pomegranate was actually my favorite, because I love beets. And we’re betting that baby Juliza will be only too happy to try them when she’s finally old enough. She already seems to be interested in everything we eat!
These are available at Walmart for just $0.98 a jar, and there are options for stages 1, 2 and 3.
