This post is in partnership with Beech-Nut® Naturals™ however all opinions are my own.
While my kiddos may not be babies anymore (they are growing up so fast, where has the time gone?!), that doesn’t mean that I still don’t look for ways constantly to try and get them healthy and good food options. Being a parent and trying to find food items that are actually natural and healthy can sometimes be a bit of a struggle.
I can’t tell you how many countless hours I’ve spent at the store wandering up and down the aisles looking for something…ANYTHING…that has some sort of healthy aspect to it that my kids will actually like to eat as well. My friends, those days are over.
I recently was introduced to Beech-Nut Naturals and I can say that I’ve got my eye on a new sort of healthy “prize” for my family!
Beech-Nut Naturals – Endless Options for Your Family
I love being able to get together and talk and brainstorm with other moms about what they feed their family and what healthy food items they are using. Think of it like a playdate…but for moms. Last week, I invited over a bunch of my mom friends and we had our very own “mom Halloween playdate” and it was totally awesome! Our topic of discussion? Beech-Nut Naturals and how they can be used in everyday cooking and recipes.
First off, even though Beech-Nut Naturals may be viewed as a “food for babies”, it has a ton of different options for your family. Once I opened my mind to think that way, the ideas for using this natural food just came pouring out!
Ways to Use Beech-Nut Naturals in Your Recipes
- Think outside the box and discover new tastes and flavors!
One of the best ways to use the Beech-Nut Naturals beets, pears, and pomegranate flavor that I’ve found and is to add it into a morning smoothie or shake! It’s packed full of natural and healthy ingredients, and it adds a fun color and great flavor as well! Your kiddo will never know that they’ve just drunk “beets”…but you will!
- The Beech-Nut Naturals fruit options are perfect to add to oatmeal!
I don’t know about you, but my kiddos love oatmeal. And while it’s good and hearty, I like to add a few tasty options as well. Consider opening up a jar of Beech-Nut Naturals bananas, and just mix it in. Literally, it’s as simple as that. No added ingredients, no fillers – just mashed up bananas to take their oatmeal from good, to great!
PIN FOR LATER:
Parents of the world, don’t delay. Using Beech-Nut Naturals is a super simple way to add some “real” foods without fillers to your families menu planning.
