Beech-Nut Review-Baby’s First Year make it’s Best

When I first became a parent I did not know much about how to feed a baby: what type of food, how much food, etc. The list of things I did not know left me scratching my head. Then along came Beech-Nut the best baby food. I can’t recall if I just stumbled upon it or if someone told me about them. I found that they have a nice selection of products to feed your baby during the first year. The food selections are broken down into months of age to help you know the proper foods to give baby at the proper time. They are prepackaged in the right amounts for  too.

4+months

Beech-Nut has the 4+ month items divided into three categories. The first is Cereals, which come in three flavors: oatmeal, rice, and organic oatmeal. The second category for 4 month old babies is the traditional Baby Food Jars. There are thirteen of them from classic apple & banana jar to classic turkey & turkey broth jar just to name a couple. Organic is the last category. The organic foods come in seven flavors. An example of some of them are Organic just apple jar and Organic just pumpkin jar.

6+months

For our 6+ month old babies, Beech-Nut offers four categories of yummy foods for your child. The first is Cereal with five tasty flavors such as oatmeal, rice, and multigrain. The 6+ month child also gets a choice from the Jars selection, which is broken down even more with Naturals (twenty-four flavors of them,) Classics, (fifteen flavors) and Organic (seventeen flavors.) I like this section. There is so much to pick from!

Another item that Beech-Nut has available is Pouches. You and your child will have a squeezing-good time with these cuties. They come in eighteen flavors such as organic apple, black bean & raspberry or organic banana, blueberry & avocado and the ad shows that it is a good nutritious snack, full of the goodness your child needs. Finally, once again, there is the Organic products. This section has twenty-four flavors to choose from! Some of them are: organic just apples or organics apple, pumpkin & granola. Beech-Nut says your child will fall for this sweet treat and it will also bring a smile to you, knowing it is good for them with all the goodness mother nature brings.

8+months

At eight months of age, the menu for your child grows, just like your child does. There are five categories of delicious food for this age group. Starting with Cereal, Beech-Nut has multigrain cereal and organic multigrain cereals. They are made from a blend of wholesome grains of rice, oat and whole wheat flours and are creamy and easy to digest. In Jars, there are thirty-one choices. Beech-Nut tells us that each one has all natural ingredients (on the label they are called Naturals – and mother- approved no doubt.) Here are some examples: one is Naturals apple & pumpkin jar, Naturals just apple & blackberry jar and many more to choose from.

Pouches offer a lot of flavors to choose from as well. One is squash, peas & pear veggies on-the-go another is pear, banana & raspberry fruities on-the-go and once again, there’s sure to be at least one choice that your child will like. The Snacks for 8+ children have four flavor varieties. They are sweet potato, mango & yogurt melties, strawberry, apple & yogurt melties, apple & pumpkin fruit & veggie melties and banana, blueberry & green beans fruit & veggie melties( I love melts. Maybe I some get some for myself!) Lastly, there are the Organics group. This group has seventeen flavors available and, as stated earlier, they have all-natural ingredients. Here are some flavors they have: organics apple, cinnamon & granola, organics just sweet potato & barley and organics just butternut squash & sweet corn.

12+

At twelve months of age, junior starts to learn how to be picky about his foods, so he is offered only three categories. The first category is Organic. Organic has seven flavors to choose from some. Some of the flavor choices are: organics yogurt, carrot, mango & oat, organics apple, sweet potato, pineapple & oat and organics corn, kale & quinoa. Then there is the Snacks category with six flavors available. One is strawberry fruity oat bars (yummy!) Another is strawberry, apple & yogurt melties and banana fruity oat bars. To finish, there is the Pouches category, with twenty-three flavors to pick from (to a small child at this age pouches means a mess ready to happen, as I found out with my daughter.) Some of the flavors include:yogurt, banana & strawberry blend breakfast on-the-go, squash, apple & strawberry veggies on-the-go and apple, peach & strawberry fruities on-the-go. The rest of them also sound like very delicious flavors as I look at them and they sound very healthy for junior as well.

Gerber Baby Food Review – The Best Food For Growing Bodies

When my daughter was a new born baby, the wife and I did not know much about baby food and nutrition because this was our first child. We asked other parents and family and friends about what to feed our baby, and of course, we got a rainbow of opinions on what is best to feed her and how much and on and on it went. Then I decided to try Gerber Baby Food, and what a selection there is on what to feed junior! So without further ado, I will tell you what I learned and see if this is the baby food for you.

Formula


Image result for amazon buy button
Formulas, for me, was a tough one because I was so ignorant on the subject and did not know where to start, but Gerber helped me out with their formula products. They have nine products to choose from. They all help aid brain & eye development and they are easy for babies to digest. Also, they have a category on Tummy Troubles & Colic with seven products available to choose from.

Baby Cereal

Now this one to me seemed a little easier to figure out than the formula was. Gerber has this area broken down into three categories. The first is Single-Grain Starter Cereal with nine great varieties from oatmeal to rice. Next, is the Sitter Cereal with six products from whole wheat to oatmeal peach apple. Finally, there is the Crawler & Toddler Cereal with eight products from banana & cream to banana apple strawberry. That should make baby real happy, huh?

Baby Food

I remember when my daughter was a baby there did not seem to be much to pick from or maybe I was not looking in the right places. At least today, Gerber has a great line up of food for junior. Let’s see what they have. Lil’ Mixers – there are eight of these little meals from flavors like Apple Avocado with Quinoa Crisp, Apple Strawberry Banana with Puffed Grain and many more. Wow – with Plastic Tubs there are eighty-nine varieties! Here are a few of them: carrot, pea, peach, chicken noodle dinner, apple cherry and many more.

Pouches – this is a great one for toddlers to master self-feeding and there is less mess too. They come in forty-nine flavors like Pear Squash, Fruit & Yogurt Peaches & Cream, Banana Mango and many more yummy flavors. And then there are the traditional Glass Jars – the ones I used to use which come in eleven flavors. I will rattle off a few, like Ham and Gravy, Apple, Sweet Potato, Apple Carrot & Cinnamon and more.

Snacks

There are three categories in the snacks section. Dairy is one of them with thirteen flavors like Strawberry, Red Berries, Mix Berry and more. Next are the Grains & Bakery with forty-one flavors available. Let your child’s mouth water for this one: Banana Cookies or Sweet Potato Puff. The list goes on and on. Finally, there are Melts. Yum! Melts come in eight tasty flavors like Truly Tropical Blend or Banana Strawberry or Very Berry Blend (make me wish I was a baby boy again for this snack section.)

Meals & Sides


Image result for amazon buy button
Two categories are offered for Meals & Sides. One is Meal Options with twenty-two flavors or products to choose from. Another is Mac & Cheese with Chicken & Vegetables. If that’s not your baby’s fancy, how about this flavor – Turkey & Vegetable Ravioli. Again, the list goes on. Lots of choices for your child to try. There are five Sides to choose from. This one I think could have been in the snacks section. Meat Sticks, Turkey Sticks and a few more to pick from.

Beverages

Now we have to have something to wash down all those meals right? Gerber has some drinks that will do the trick so here they are: one is 100 % Fruit Juices like Apple, White Grape, and Mixed Fruit. Eight in all to choose from. Water is next. Gerber water undergoes an extensive, multi step process to ensure consistent purity and quality. The last one is Water and Fruit Juice Blends – four products or flavors to pick from. Here is one called Strawberry Kiwi Flavor. Another is Mango Peach Carrot and the other two are called Banana Mango Squash and Cherry Sweet Potato Apple. (I will drink to that. How about you?)

Freshful Start


Image result for amazon buy button
There are four categories in the Freshful Start section. I will start with Homestyle Purees, with four flavors: Apple, Parsnip & Beet with Cardamom, Pear & Parsnip with Vanilla and more. Next is Ready to Blend Food Kits, which also has four selections to choose from like Pea, Mango & Corn or maybe this one: Sweet Potato & Carrot. How about Beet, Parsnip & Yellow Carrot? And finally, Parsnip, Yellow Carrot & Orange Carrot.

Veggie Entree Bowls is the next category. Two of the four products available here are Tomatoe Bell Pepper & Zucchini with Pasta & Lentil in a Garlic Citrus Seasoning and Bell Pepper Tomato & White Bean with Brown Rice and Quinoa in a Sofrito Seasoning. (hopefully, this will not give junior heart burn.) To conclude the Fresh Start section are Veggie Sides. Three varieties are available here: Riced Cauliflower & Mixed Veggies with Quinoa, Noodled Beets with Quinoa, and Noodled Butternut Squash with Brown Rice. Children today eat and drink like Kings and Queens compared to when I was a boy!

Organic

Start junior on the right foot with organic food. Gerber has a nice selection to choose from. There are five categories of them. Starting with Organic Cereal, which comes in five different products one flavor is oatmeal. Then there is Organic Baby Food, which comes in forty-two tasty products, for example Pear Spinach or Banana Mango. Next is Organic Beverages. There are four flavors like Cherry Sweet Potato Apple.

Gerber even has Organic Formula. There are three of these products. You cannot get much better than that. Finally, there are Organic Snacks – fourteen of them. I will give you an example of some: Fig Berry, Cranberry Orange, White Bean Hummus and many more (I think I will get me some – they sound good!)

Hate to End

Gerber Baby Food sure does have a lot of healthy and nutritious choices for modern day parents to feed their babies. So go out there and stock up on all those best products today. You will not regret it. If Gerber had had this for my daughter when she was a baby, it would have made my life a lot easier.
