Beech-Nut has revamped its baby food, pledging a “No Junk Promise.” Its Stage 4 toddler line of foods and snacks is low in sodium, with no added refined sugar and no high fructose corn syrup. Treats like a cookie taste good, but don’t offer merely empty calories. Prices range from $1.25 for Mini Meals to $2.89 for Wakey Flakes Cereal or Yogurt Nibbles. www.beech-nut.com.
Gerber is expanding its DHA-added products and organic lines. DHA is now in three new Gerber dinner purees: garden vegetables with whole wheat pasta, vegetable risotto with cheese and macaroni with vegetables. Dinners are $.79 for a four-ounce jar. www.gerber.com.
Once kids can read, it is harder to trick them with healthier snacks, but you can feel good about chips from FoodShouldTasteGood. These chips don’t have artificial flavors or preservatives; the sweet potato chip has pureed sweet potatoes, and the jalapeno has pieces of pepper. There are unusual flavors, like chocolate (try it with peanut butter) and olive. And the multigrain has quinoa, sesame and sunflower seeds. The gluten-free chips are about $3.29 for a six-ounce bag or $.99 for a one-ounce bag at WP, FP – Stew Leonard’s BK, BAP – Fairway, QP – Pathmark or at www.foodshouldtastegood.com.
