ST. LOUIS — Beech-Nut Corp. has introduced Good Morning and Good Evening baby foods — products designed with important ingredients and nutrients for infants based on the time of day they are eating.
The Good Morning foods include 1 gram of soluble fiber, which helps encourage a steady release of energy throughout the morning and promotes alertness. The Good Evening foods have whey proteins that help build muscles at night, when babies grow the most.
Good Evening foods also include a prebiotic called inulin, which helps digesting by stimulating the growth of helpful bacteria in the baby’s digestive system.
"This new line of products makes choosing what to feed baby a whole lot easier, and more importantly, provides babies with the nutrition that they need to learn and grow at just the right times," said Christoph Rudolf, president and chief executive officer of Beech-Nut Nutrition Corp. "Good Morning and Good Evening represent Beech-Nut’s commitment to drive innovation and nutrition in infant food, and to provide more choices to parents."
The line of products includes two 8-oz dry cereals and five varieties of 4-oz jarred foods in each of the Good Morning and Good Evening options. The products will be available in stores this spring.
