Hosting a Party with Beech-Nut Naturals

This post was created in partnership with Beech-Nut® Naturals™. All opinions are our own.

We recently hosted a party for some of our Mommy Friends and Contributors in partnership with Beech-Nut® Naturals™. It was so easy and fun to plan a party around the iconic “honeypot” jar and green lid. We love that Beech-Nut® is a small company located in upstate New York with a team of 300 employees that are passionate about making real food for babies! Their products are made with real fruits and vegetables, just like you would use at home. Nothing artificial, 100% natural and only ingredients you can pronounce.  

When we say that Beech-Nut® Naturals™ are tasty and delicious – you can trust that we tried several of the products! Can you say that you’ve tried baby food before? Haha!

Beech-Nut® Naturals™ isn’t baby food, it’s real food for babies, inspired by homemade.

We created a handful of menu options using Beech-Nut® Naturals™ in the recipe! Everyone sampled and enjoyed all the offerings. Both moms and kiddos alike!

Here’s what we made:

Pear & Blueberry Parfait

+ 1 Jar Beech-Nut® Naturals™ Just Pear & Blueberry

+ Vanilla Yogurt

+ Blueberries (Fresh or Frozen)

+ Granola

  1. Place 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt in a mason jar (we used some recycled Beech-Nut® jars!)
  2. Top with Beech-Nut® Naturals™ Just Pear & Blueberry
  3. Add a handful of  blueberries and granola to taste
  4. Enjoy!

We had some of this leftover and it was perfectly portioned to stick in our pre-schooler’s lunchbox. We popped on a lid and it was good to go! He loved and ate every spoonful.

Apple & Kale Smoothie

+ 1 Jar Beech-Nut® Naturals™ Just Apple & Kale

+ 1 Cup packed kale leaves, stems removed

+ 1 Cup packed spinach leaves

+ Juice of 1/2 lemon

+ 1 green apple, cored, diced and frozen

+ 1 tsp agave

+ 1/2 cup apple juice

+ 1/2 cup ice cubes

  1. Blend all ingredients together in a high-powered blender until smooth.
  2. Enjoy!

This smoothie was a huge hit at the party for both moms and kids! Everyone enjoyed and getting the kids to eat their greens is always a win!

Blueberry Cheese Bites

+ 1 Jar Beech-Nut® Naturals™ Just Pear & Blueberry

+ 1/3 Cup whipped cream cheese

+ 1 tsp lemon zest, plus more for serving

+ 1 Tbl fresh lemon juice

+ 20 fresh blueberries

+ 20 round crackers

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the whipped cream cheese, lemon zest, and lemon juice until well incorporated
  2. Gently chop 10 blueberries into small pieces
  3. Take a cracker and spread with roughly 2 tsp of cheese spread, leaving the sides of the cheese towards the outside of the cracker slightly higher than the middle. This will keep everything in place!
  4. Dollop roughly 1 tsp of Jar Beech-Nut® Naturals™ Just Pear & Blueberry into the middle of the cheese spread. Top with 1 full blueberry and sprinkle with lemon zest.
  5. Place bites onto a platter and serve!

These little bites of happiness didn’t last long – in fact, we didn’t even get a photo!

We had a wonderful time chatting and snacking while our kiddos played between bites. Sometimes you just have to pull out the party decor and invite some friends over for coffee and community. We also had a fun game of Beech-Nut® Bingo on hand! Our kids had all kinds of questions about the food photos on the board. Like the cinnamon and pumpkin! I don’t think they realized that pumpkins are something we can eat that doesn’t come in a pie can, haha!

Thanks to everyone that came to our party, and special thanks to Beech-Nut® Naturals™ for providing each attendee with a goodie bag stuffed with awesome items! Each mommy went home with 3 jars of Beech-Nut® Naturals™, an adorable jar koozie, spoon, and recipe card!
