Do you have a picky eater in your home?
Is that picky eater a toddler who has just transitioned from formula or breast milk to solids. Are you finding it hard to introduce the pallet to a new texture?
I’ve come across so many parents that ask for advice with their picky eaters. And, though I am not an expert at feeding I have worked with many children that have feeding issues besides being a mom of 3 with a toddler who has his moments with food.
It’s a fact that growing toddlers only need 1300 calories a day. You can decide what goes into those 1300 calories. Yes, a well balanced diet is recommended …..that is the goal but how do you do that when your child is so picky?
Well, I turned to Beech-Nut® Naturals and stopped the fuss of farm to market shopping to cook and prep when the foods were being rejected.
This longtime baby food brand is a baby food made with real ingredients, that are gently cooked over indirect heat to preserve color,flavor and nutrients. The natural fruits and vegetables are also contain organic and Non GMO Verified.
I began to implement ways to nourish my toddler with these tips using Beech-Nut® Naturals
– Smoothies: 1-2 fruits and vegetable using the jar puréed as seen in the photo above
– ice pops are a hit during the warmer seasons and can be a great snack. Here you can add any blend of the Beech-Nut® Naturals fruits and vegetables as well.
– Soups are also a great idea during the colder seasons Here you can add the Beech-Nut® Naturals with an addition of fun alphabets for added texture.
We’re now in the full independent eating stage. Which is why I am so thankful for the Beech-Nut® Naturals Bars. When packing lunch for any of the kiddos I grab a bar from the pantry and toss it in their lunch boxes.
HERE is where you can find all of the Beech-Nut® goodness including the bars that have officially made our little Bash an #infantfluencer in our eyes……You know the kid that influences all of the greatness of food by loving it all!
