 Gerber Baby Food (All Flavors) - 

Gerber Baby Food has come a long way since Mrs. Dan Gerber decided to strain all the peas at once and can them.. .

Gerber 2nd foods organic apples and sweet potatoes are USDA certified, yummy, and just sweet enough to get the baby to try yams without drowning it in sugar.

There are new plastic 2 packs tha boast "as healthy as fresh" and have plastic square cartons that fit neatly in the fridge door and snap shut. The Rice Cereal comes in the old familiar box, but also a shiny new carton with a better lid, and DHA added to support brain development. You start out making it rather thin and work your way up to cream of wheat consistency. And hot cereal later will be your economic nutritious ally!

My son has been eating a container of the Harvest Vegetables nearly daily:  he loves them.  I just read the label for the first time and noticed that the DHA is from added tuna oil.  I am not at all happy to see this.  I know that tuna is considered to be high in mercury, and I know that heavy metals are stored in the fatty tissues of animals..... therefore, it would seem that there must be a significant amount of mercury in the added tuna oil.

 Personally, I do not want to give my son any amount at all of mercury, especially when I know it's present and can avoid it.

 I am disappointed and suprised by this and have already thrown away the rest of the #2 vegetables with DHA that I had in my cupboard.

        Comments about Gerber Baby Food with DHA:

        Gerber Baby food with DHA is the best choice for my son. He was a very picky eater when he was old enough for baby food. Gerber was the easiest for him to eat and keep down, as he had a pretty bad reflex problem. The flavors were great and there were many to choose from. I wish they would send out more coupons. They do get a little pricey overtime but it is well worth the product that you are buying. I am pregnant with my daughter right now, and when she is old enough to eat baby food, this is the one brand that I will trust. I am very particular about what I give my kids and this is one of the only brands I will let them eat. I would recommend them coming out with my flavors for the babies to eat. I do like the different levels that they have out for each child, depending on age. I do recommend these above all other kinds of baby foods out there. Not only is it safe to eat, but very healthy for a babies development.

        Tastes great!

        Comments about Gerber Baby Food with DHA:

        I recently went on a baby food shopping spree when my son started eating solid foods and I was astonished at the variety of Gerber Baby Foods with DHA!  I got one of everything and my pantry was jam-packed!  There are so many flavors and varieties and every one of them is actually really tasty! (Yes, I tasted them all before I fed them to my son, haha)  There are many different vegetables, fruits, medleys, smoothies and oatmeal/grain/fruit combinations.  I have not actually given my son the Smoothies yet, as they seem like baby food versions of dessert, which I don't think are necessary, but I have given him everything else and he loves them all!  The oatmeal/fruit combinations are a great thick consistency, which he really likes.  He loves all the vegetables and medleys.  The plain peaches and the plain bananas seem to be a little sour for his liking, but if I mix them with a little bit of oatmeal and formula, he eats them right up!  I recommend that any moms who don't make their own baby food try these out!  They also come in very convenient plastic containers!

        Comments about Gerber Baby Food with DHA:

        My baby which just turned 7 month old loves gerber foods with DHA. She definitely like it i tasted it for myself and taste really good and delicious. Most of all, its safe for her cause she really adjust to it very well and she never had any diarrhea with it. At the first taste, i love the way she can't get enough with it,its actually her first food. Whats good with the gerber foods is that aside from the fact that its  vegetable and fruits is sometimes packed with proteins and others for babies nutrition (you can read the labels to prove), So i do highly recommend it for all the moms there who wants nothing but the best for their babies. Like any other moms im making sure that anything that my baby takes is good for her and gives her nutrition for her growth and development, thats the number one factor for me to consider when choosing food for my baby, and gerber baby food is definitely my choice.

        Great product!

        Comments about Gerber Baby Food with DHA:

        I tried this product with my son.  I wanted to added DHA to give to him for his development.  I wasn't aware that this product exsisted prior to shopping for baby food for the first time.  My son loved all of the flavors.  I think that the price is great for what you are getting.  Just look for a coupon! I wish that they had more flavors when my son was eating them a year and a half ago. I look forward to giving this to my second son and hope that they have expended their flavors. I would use this in conjunction with the organic Gerber food.  Both foods are great values. I didn't warm the baby food up, it wasn't needed.  If there was leftover in the fridge I would let it sit out for a few minutes before I served the food.  It did the trick!  The packages are convienent and can even be washed out and resused for treats in your diaper bag.  I would recommend this product to any mother.

              Gerber baby food witH DHA

              Blueberry oat was my daughters favorite.It was great for mid afternoon snack and sometimes after dinner also.My daughter never refused blueberry oat.So it was a great help for me.She liked harvest vegetable & applesauce also.Now she is 16 months and still asks for the blueberry oat.

              I used   to mix that with her rice cereal for the breasfast and she would finish her breakfast fast. :)I used to give Gerber cereals also to my daughter.Barley,rice,wheat were her favorites.Gerber baby food is really good and safe for the babies.

              Good for your baby's brain and eyes

              By

              Comments about Gerber Baby Food with DHA:

              Gerber Baby food with DHA has added nutrition to help your baby's brain and eye development.

              Originally, I had not paid any attention to the food with DHA since it is a bit more expensive than the regular food. But, occasionally it goes on sale in stores in my area and when it did, it became cheaper than the regular food, so I thought I would give it a try.

              My son loved the flavors and I like the fact that it is helping his body develop in crucial areas. I stocked up on it once I discovered that he really likes it. I am also impressed by the flavor combinations. What a great way to expose a child to such a variety of flavors and foods!

              The DHA comes from fish oil, which is a "brain-boosting" food. I like that it comes in several choices of fruits and vegetables, although I wish there were more choices. But it is great that the choices they have are different from the regular and organic versions. That way I am able to expose my son to the widest variety of foods possible.

              So far, we have not found a flavor my son will not eat.

              Comes in a variety of flavor combinations

              By 

              from Lincoln, NE

              Comments about Gerber Baby Food with DHA:

              The Gerber 2nd foods with DHA are a great way to introduce baby's pallete to new flavor combinations for a baby who has already tried most or all of the Gerber 2nd foods.  The DHA is an added bonus to help with baby's brain development.

              I used these foods when transitioning betweend 2nd and 3rd stage foods because of the great flavor combinations.  I tried to incorporate one of the DHA foods in each day.  The blueberry oat flavor was especially good for breakfast.  There is also a wide variety of flavors in different colors to ensure baby is getting healthy foods from different sources.

              I do wish Gerber had more single flavor foods with DHA.  Since you need to introduce baby to one food at a time to watchout for allergies it was sometimes hard to incorporate the DHA foods in.

              Cost is also a negative factor as the DHA foods are pricier than the regular 2nd stage foods.

              Overall I highly recommend the Gerber 2nd stage foods with DHA.

              Help your baby be all he or she can be

              Comments about Gerber Baby Food with DHA:

              I am a grandmother with seven grandchildren.  Three of them lived with me in their early, formative years.  My youngest grandson is the only one who had the chance to experience Gerber Baby Food with DHA.  I read the label and thought "yeah right this is not really going to make that much of a difference...it is just a cute advertising scheme to sucker people into buying this product."  However, I did buy it.  Much to my amazement it does indeed help intensify your child's development.  He seemed to learn things faster and easier.  He is now 2 years old and can talk as if he is 5.  It is really cute he will actually spell his name and say that's me.  He can carry on conversations that sound like a mini adult.  He is very adept at games, logical thinking and hand-eye coordination.  I am so glad that I spent the extra money to try this product.  It totally delivered on everything it promised.  It may be a little more expensive but I promise parents that it is definately worth it in the end by enabling you child to develop to their fullest potential.  If I could be on a television commercial to promote Gerber with DHA then I would....that is how strongly I believe in this product.
