What stages are your snacks made for?
We make a wide range of snacks for infants & toddlers at many stages. Our “beginner” snacks, such as melties, are available for babies 8-months old and up (or stage 3 and beyond). We also offer snacks beyond stage 4, including our Brownies with Hidden Veggies for toddlers, ages 24 months and up.
Ask your pediatrician about your infant’s readiness to consume snacks.
What are hidden veggie snacks?
Beech-Nut® Toddler snacks with Hidden Veggies are fun and yummy treats that are baked with varying levels of powdered or pureed vegetable ingredients. These snacks have the same great taste of similar snacks that babies and toddlers love without artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.
Hey, aren’t squash and pumpkins really fruits, not vegetables?
Botanically, yes. However, on the p. 145 of the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2020 – 2025, the USDA defines them as vegetables.
Is the date on my product a best-by date or an expiration date? What is the difference?
The dates on all of our products are “best-by” dates, meaning the product is best when consumed by this date, but is still safe to eat for a certain amount of time after this date passes.
•For cereals—the best by date can be found on the bottom of the canister. Cereal is still safe to eat for 30 days after opening.
• For jars—the best by date can be found on the top or side of the lid. Our jar purees are still safe to eat for 1 year after the best-by date.
• For pouches—the best by date can be found on the bottom of the pouch near the barcode. Pouch purees are still safe to eat 3 months after the best-by date.
• For Snacks —the best by date can be found on the bottom of the bag near the barcode.
