Perfect sizeAs a first time mom I decided that my daughter should try everything once. So, with that being said, we tried out the beef & beef broth. It doesn't sound or taste good in my opinion but it's not for me. I gave it to my daughter and after about 3 bites she still didn't care for it. So, I mixed a little bit of carrots with it and she ate it. So, not too bad. I received this for free for my honest review.
Poor texture for stage 1I have twin boys who just turned 6 months old. They’ve been trying every stage one fruit and veggie, but this is the first meat. I tried a small spoonful first (I always test my babies’ foods to make sure they’re safe). I thought it seemed a little gritty, but let my boys try it anyway. They’ve been enjoying solids since 5 months old, liking flavors and textures. Both of them immediately spit the beef out. I tried another spoonful, testing if they just needed to get used to it. Nope. Both spit it out, again. I believe it’s too grainy/gritty to be classified as a first food, but maybe my boys didn’t like it because it is their first meats. The flavor is majorly bland. I thank you for the sample jar, Beechnut, but I will not be buying this particular food for my babies.Response from Beech-Nut®:Hi there! We are so sorry the texture wasn't quite what you hoped it would be. We will definitely mention this to our quality assurance team! Thanks for your input :)
Great responseI just introduced this particular beef and beef broth baby food to my 7 month old and it was amazing to see his response. He absolutely loved it and can't wait to purchase more.
Taste just okay, smell bad!I let my husband smell the product and he said it immediately reminded him of wet cat food smell.
Smells AWFULMy baby has liked quite a few baby food flavors, but this one she was NOT a fan. It probably didn't help that it smelled worse than wet cat food. She made ugly faces and groaning noises the whole time we tried to feed it to her and after 7min we eventually gave up bc she was just storing it in her mouth. I don't think beef normally smells bad on it's own, so I'm not sure why it would smell so awful in this form.Response from Beech-Nut®:Our S1 Beef and Beef Broth may taste and smell bland but it’s just what a baby needs when they first begin to eat meat. We’d love to spice it up and cook it on the grill like you would do with your steak but unfortunately a baby’s palette isn’t that sophisticated yet. Once you have ruled out any food allergies you can try mixing in some fruits or veggies to make feeding more enjoyable. We’ve also sent you an email to collect information from your jar so that we can take a look at that specific batch.
Great!Overall my daughter loves this brand but for some reason she wasn't a huge fan of this one. I tried it myself and it was great nothing bad with it, i just believe she is not ready for this flavor yet. I hope she likes it in the future as she will eventually need her meats.
No iron??My baby likes the food. I however do not understand how this food provides zero percent of iron when beef is quite high in heme iron?Response from Beech-Nut®:Please check the ingredients on the jar for the most updated product info. Our Classics Beef & Beef Broth contains 4% of DV iron per serving (jar). We will correct the info on the website to reflect this!
