Spring’s here, and so are four new Finger Foods on the Nurture Life baby and toddler menu! As always, these little jars serve up a whole lot of flavor (specially chosen for a baby’s newly developing palate!), along with essential nutrients for this critical developmental stage. Our Finger Foods are soft, mushable and well sized for palming, grabbing, grasping and gumming.

Whether you’re working through baby-led weaning or are transitioning out of baby food purees, our newest Finger Foods are a great way to start or continue your baby’s self-feeding journey.

Chicken & Veggie Stew

This dairy-free stew makes for a delightful meal at any time of year! It brings that warm, comforting vibe right to your baby’s high chair tray without all the mess (or silverware!) involved with a typical bowl of stew. Bites of chicken are tossed with organic peas, potatoes and carrots and lightly seasoned to capture that timeless stew flavor.

Shepherd’s Pie

Based on the classic English comfort food, our Shepherd’s Pie features bites of antibiotic-free beef meatloaf layered with cubes of cooked-till-tender potatoes. These hearty ingredients are balanced out by a fiber-rich medley of organic peas, carrots and corn tossed in a delicious au jus sauce to complement the beef’s savory flavor.

These last three veggies aren’t just nutritious, either! They’re perfect for helping your little one master the pincer grasp, and their naturally sweet flavor and vibrant colors make them a favorite among babies learning to self-feed.

Fiesta Chicken, Black Bean & Corn

We’ve gently seasoned the chicken with southwest-style spices, roasted garlic and zesty lime to give your baby an introduction to a world of new flavors.

Chicken, Broccoli & Potato Medley
