When Sofia was a baby, feeding time was much easier. I didn’t have to worry if she was getting enough to eat or if she was getting the right amount of veggies in her diet. My go-to baby food was always Beech-Nut® Naturals™. This line of baby food purées are 100% natural, nothing artificial. Plus, she loved it.  Now that she is two years old and a picky eater, It is much more difficult to get her to eat anything!!. I had to come up with a new way to ensure she gets her veggies. The perfect solution, veggie muffins!

After searching all over Pinterest, I was able to combine and change a few recipes to create something that worked for me. Most importantly, I wanted to use the Beech-Nut® Naturals™ baby food purées because I know they are made with real fruits and vegetables, just like you would use at home.  These no sugar added carrot muffins are super easy to make, and Sofia is a big fan.
