There are lots of fun and exciting milestones in baby’s first year, but one of the most exciting(I’ve always thought) is introducing solid foods! And just around the corner from adding solid foods to mealtime, are baby’s first snacks.
We have always loved to use Gerber snacks with all three of our babies- Puffs, Yogurt Melts, and Lil’ Crunchies!
Gerber offers nutritious snacks with good for you ingredients like whole grains, real fruit and yogurt, with no added bad stuff- like no artificial flavors or synthetic colors.
Snacking smart with Gerber encourages healthy eating patterns from a young age while the taste and variety keeps Finn happy!
Did you know that little ones 8-24 months get about 25-30% of their daily calories from snacks and that 1/3 of 8-24 month old babies are not eating whole grains on a given day? This early in life, every single thing your child eats should play a meaningful role in their overall nutrition so snacking smart with Gerber sets them up for a healthy life!
Since we are just getting started, Finn’s favorites and our go to snacks are Gerber Puffs.. But we have Gerber Lil Crunchies and Yogurt Melts ready and waiting for him in our pantry as he gets bigger.
Gerber snacks are perfect for when we are out and about, on a walk, or to keep him happy and entertained while we are all at the table together! We have loved Gerber snacks in the Spena house for years and always keep them stocked in our pantry.
Do you love Gerber snacks as much as we do? Or are you interested in trying them out for your own little ones? Head to the Gerber website to learn more and grab a coupon while you’re there for the next time you’re at the store stocking up on Puffs, Yogurt Melts and Lil’ Crunchies!
