Beech-Nut Naturals is made with real ingredients, gently cooked. This puree is what Beech-Nut is known for. Stage 1 Beech-Nut Naturals apple baby food is made with real, fresh apples—and nothing else. We source our apples locally from a farm about three hours away, right here in upstate New York to make this Non-GMO Project verified puree. Fresh apples mean fantastic taste you can trust for your little one as they start solid foods. This Stage 1 puree is recommended for babies about 4 months and up. All Beech-Nut baby food jars are vacuum-sealed for freshness. This jar can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days after opening.
