We’ve always been fans of Beech-Nut’s foods — so I was delighted to find out that they have a new line called Let’s Grow!, which is a full line of toddler meals and snacks. They feature Beech-Nut’s No Junk Promise — which promises no artificial flavors, colors, MSG or preservatives, and has all-natural ingredients without any trans fats or added refined sugar, and are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. Each package will tell you exactly how the item follows Beech-Nut’s strict guidelines for the No Junk Promise. For example, the Yogurt Nibbles, a yogurt coated whole grain snack, meets the No Junk Promise because it contains real yogurt, real fruit, has no added refined sugar, no artificial preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors, supports bone and teeth development, is all natural and has vitamins and minerals and no added salt.

Toddler meals include Tummy Trays and Mini Meals (6 oz single serve). Tummy Trays are thick soups, chock full of vegetables. They are for ages 12 months and up and come in Chicken Vegetable Noodle, Turkey Vegetable and Vegetable Beef. My son liked them, but he had to be in the mood for soup. Since he’s three, the Mini Meals were more his taste. Choose from Macaroni & Cheese, Spaghetti Rings, Chicken & Stars and Chicken & Cheesy Potatoes. While we liked all of them, our favorite was the Mac & Cheese. Studded with tiny bits of carrots, the little round pasta with the thick cheese sauce is a winner. My three year old keeps asking for it and preferred it over the organic boxed kind. I felt good giving him Beech-Nut’s Mac & Cheese because it was 50% lower in sodium (at 180 mg) than a leading competitor’s same size tub and it gave my child 50% of daily protein requirements, 50% of vitamin A requirements and 10% of calcium and iron requirements.
We loved the Let’s Grow! Snacks. The Yogurt Nibbles, which I mentioned above, come in Strawberry Banana, Tropical, and Berries and Cherries. The Tropical flavor was my favorite and I ended up stealing it away from the kids because I liked it so much! My son went gaga over the Fruit Nibbles — each package contains a full serving of fruit and has 100% of the daily value of vitamin C for your child. He thought they were like gummy bears (he’s only had the vitamin version). The Let’s Grow! Seven-Grain Nibbles, in Mixed Veggie and Sweet Potato, are delish. They looked like thin versions of mini rice cakes and contain seven whole grains.
The Let’s Grow! Wakey Flakes Cereal rounds out the line. Varieties offered are Apple Cinnamon Oats and Multi-Grain with Banana. These cereals are especially made for toddlers and contain 1 gram of soluble fiber per serving. They’re available in Beech-Nut’s Easy Pour carton. While we did not try this out, I will be looking for it in my local grocery store (cereal is kind of a big deal in our home)
Beech-Nut’s Let’s Grow! Toddler Meals and Snacks are widely available.
We are giving away three Beech-Nut Let’s Grow! toddler gift bags. Each bag contains a variety of the new Let’s Grow! meals and snacks, including Tummy Trays, Mini Meals, Yogurt Nibbles, 7 Grain Nibbles and Wakey Flakes Cereal with an estimated value of $15 each.
