Yesterday, baby B and I were invited to attend Gerber’s Chew U Event here in Dallas. While the other moms and I were snacking on the delicious party food we were taught all about Gerber 3rd Foods® Lil’ Bits™ Recipes and how they are designed with perfectly sized fruit or vegetable bits in order to teach babies how to master chewing.
Before Gerber designed Lil’ Bits™, moms were sort of left on their own to teach babies how to make the transition from purees to table food. Being a mom is a busy job and we don’t always have the time to make transitional baby food from scratch. That is why Gerber 3rd Foods® Lil’ Bits™ Recipes have so much to offer. They provide a quick meal, packaged in plastic reusable tubs that are incredibly convenient, while also providing a way to overcome a big milestone in your baby’s life. Easy and monumental! What else could you ask for in a baby food!?
Gerber supplied us with some awesome goodies as well. Baby B got a cool Gerber t-shirt and samples of Apple Blueberry Lil’ Bits™, which she LOVES! With ten different recipes your picky eater is bound to have a favorite! B is about ten months old so she is at the perfect age for Gerber 3rd Foods® Lil’ Bits™. Wondering if your baby is ready to learn to mash and chew? Here are some signs to look out for:
- Crawling with tummy off the ground
- Starting to feed with his/her own fingers
- Starting to use his/her jaw to mash foods
- Moving foods from side to side in his/her mouth
Us moms tried to round up all of the little ones for a cute class picture in their new Gerber gear. It was super cute seeing them all interact with each other!
It is common for me to be skeptical of trying new foods that have just been released, especially letting my daughter try something brand new because you never know if the company has made any mistakes. With Gerber 3rd Foods® Lil’ Bits™, I am not nervous at all!
- 80 experts spent over 120,000 hours analyzing these recipes.
- Gerber tested 30,000 spoonfuls in order to approve this product as the perfect transitional food for babies.
- Over 700 samples were taste tested to ensure Lil’ Bits™ were baby approved.
