When I was pregnant with Emma I had all of these big ideas of things I was going to do when she was born. I was going to take a picture a day her first year, keep detailed records of all of her milestones, and make my own homemade baby food. Then she was born and I realized all of those ideas were great but not too realistic for a working mom of three. (Plus, she’s my third and we all know how that goes ?) The whole picture thing didn’t last more than a few weeks, I’ve realized a dozen books a day is a lofty goal for an infant who doesn’t even want to sit through one, and it turns out “get some sleep” and “play with my little one” trumps making my own baby food.
I’ve learned to let some things go and I’m trying not to be too hard on myself when motherhood doesn’t look exactly like I’d envisioned it would. That homemade baby food I planned on making? Not sure what I was thinking since I have a hard enough time just trying to get dinner on the table for my oldest two every night! Thankfully I discovered Beech-Nut® Naturals, a baby food made with natural fruits and veggies and never anything artificial. It’s baby food made with real ingredients, gently cooked to preserve color, flavor, and nutrients….with ingredients just like I’d use at home if I had all those extra hours to do so! Plus, they are all Non-GMO Project Verified.
Something I really like about Beech-Nut® Naturals is the variety of flavors they have and the flavor combinations that they pair together. I would have never thought to include kale in my baby food but Emma completely devoured a whole jar of Beech-Nut® Naturals Just Apple & Kale (see below for the video proof of my little princess trying it!)
Emma might be young and unable to talk but she definitely has her own opinions on things already and lets me know them with her facial expressions and actions! She let me know she enjoyed all of these and even tried to feed herself! Do you have a little one who lets everyone know what they think? Beech-Nut® wants to hear all about it during their new #Infantfluencers campaign! You even get a chance to win a great prize package ($50 value) by entering their This is real food for babies™ giveaway.
