While I’m happy that my 11 month old is more interested in food these days — I worry about her getting enough nutrition, since she won’t nurse anymore and drinks a lot less formula. I want to make sure she gets enough DHA– a nutrient naturally found in breast milk, which supports an infant’s visual and mental development. It’s also added to the formula I’ve been using. Beech-Nut was the first company to add DHA to their food, with their DHA plus+ line. It also includes an all-natural prebiotic, which supports babies’ digestive health by stimulating the growth of “good” bacteria. It contains no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, added sugar or salt.
My daughter loves sweet potatoes and carrots, so giving her Beech-Nut’s DHA plus+ Sweet Potatoes and Carrots was a no brainer. The DHA plus+ Whole Grain Cereal with Raspberries and Whole Wheat Pasta Parmesan were also gobbled down heartily.
We also like Beech-Nut’s Good Morning & Good Evening line. Both contain whole grains and are designed to give baby a good start and good finish for their day. The Good Morning Creamy Wheat with Peaches and the Good Morning Mixed Fruit Yogurt were my daughter’s favorites. A Good Evening dinner fave was the Creamy Chicken Noodle Dinner.
When it comes to baby cereal, Beech-Nut does one of the smartest things I’ve seen — they package their cereal in an “Easy Pour Package”, which mimics a 1/2 gallon of milk and really pours easily. I appreciate that the cereal doesn’t get all over my counter when I try to pour a little — like the standard box of baby cereal.
We are giving away three (3) Beech-Nut baby gift bags. Each bag contains a variety of Stage 2 jarred purees and cereals, including options from their Good Morning & Good Evening and DHA plus lines. The estimated value of each gift bag is $15.
