Once my daughter turned in to a toddler, I was having a difficult time coming across snacks for her that would fill all of our requirements. I wanted a healthy, and nutritious snack for her that was portable, and that she could feed herself, without a huge choking risk of course. So, like most new parents, I went off to the brand that I knew and had grown up with, Gerber. The Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars are great bars, don't get me wrong, they are just expensive. There are many cereal bars out there with better for you ingredients that are less expensive. Sure, these are a great size for my little one and I love how they are portable and easy for her to carry around, but for the cost, they should most definitely have at least two more in the box, or be organic. They are relatively small as well, which is good for her little hands, but irritating admitting that only eight come in a box. The box leaves a lot of leftover room in it, so you think you're getting more than you actually are. For a little bit more, I can get organic cereal bars that are meant for toddlers, and I get the same amount of bars. While these are good bars, and my kid loves them, I felt like I was being cheating.

Quality of Ingredients
I was totally disappointed that these weren't organic.

Safety
These bars were the perfect size for my little one's hands.

The Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal bars are just overpriced cereal bars. They taste exactly like them, and they are actually a lot smaller. The whole Gerber graduates line seems to be a scam if you ask me. You can find the exact same product for a cheaper price. It's usually larger and sometimes much healthier. These Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars are so tiny. I guess they are perfect for small hands, but if I'm going to pay a lot for them, then they need to be bigger. My daughter loves these, but she doesn't favor them over any other cereal bar. I actually think she likes other ones better. These only come in two or three different varieties. Also, these are no healthier than other brands of fruit cereal bars. You will be able to find the same thing for a better price if you pick another brand.

Quality of Ingredients
These cereal bars are loaded with unhealthy ingredients.

Safety
These are safe, but they seem to dry out my daughter's mouth, so she always needs a drink while eating these. These taste great dipped in milk!

Perfect for busy toddlers!

By 

from Elko, Nevada

Comments about Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars:

After having five children, they are always on the go and so busy and many times they do not get a super nutritious meal in them. I love these snack fruit and cereal bars! They are so great tasting (I even enjoy them) and they are always a win for my kids and they never complain about eating them. I love to pack these in my purse when we go somewhere for a quick snack for the kids that is not only easy to eat, mess free, and it is very good for them. The flavors these come in are great and my kids eat them up so fast. The only complaint I have on them is that they are somewhat small compared to other cereal and fruit bars, so it makes them a little more expensive and you get a little bit less. They are great tasting though and I would recommend to put them somewhere like your car and bags for emergencies because they are just the right amount to give a starving child when you are on the run.

These aren't worth the money!

By 

from Puyallup, WA

Comments about Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars:

The Gerber fruit and cereal bars aren't worth the money in my opinion. They are just okay. Sure babies and toddlers like them, but to me it isn't much different then giving them a regular cereal bar. The ingredients in these are okay, but not much healthier than other options out there. I like to buy baby foods that are organic and natural. These are not. Also the size of these bars are small for the price. I understand that they are smaller for little kids, but put more of them in the box. All in all these are just alright, but I would rather put my money into a different baby food snack. They are handy to have on the go though.

Quality of Ingredients
The ingredients in this product are just okay. They are not organic or natural, but they are ingredients that you can understand and that are somewhat healthy.

Safety
These cereal bars are pretty safe depending on the age of the baby. There weren't really any safety concerns for me.

Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars YUM!

By 

from USA

Comments about Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars:

When your baby is no longer a baby, but a toddler and beyond, you want to give them treats that taste good and are actually good for them. There a tons of cookies, crackers, pastries, etc. all aimed at young kids, but none of them have any nutritional value. What better treat than a cereal bar with grains baked in it? These look like other cereal bars, but they have no added fillers, just a sweet fruity filling. Being from Gerber, who is an expert in baby and toddler foods, you know you are getting a quality food made for the needs of toddlers. My son loved these as a snack in the middle of the day, or a nice treat as a reward for good behavior. The flavors are appealing to kids, and yes I myself have eaten one or two so I can verify they do indeed taste quite good. These are great cereal bars for toddlers and beyond.

Quality of Ingredients
Cereal and grains that taste good

Safety
I never has an issue but you should always supervise kids when eating, especially something like this with a fruity soft filling

perfect for toddlers

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars:

I remember always buying these for my son when he was 2 years old he loved them. There perfect for toddlers and there very healthy. They were easy for him to eat and easy for him to swallow without choking. They were a great snack for him when we would always be on the go. They were very soft and they didn't taste too sugary. He tried the apple cinnamon and the strawberry banana flavored ones but his favorite was the apple ones. He would always ask me for them when he was hungry which is good because that means he enjoys these Gerber graduates fruit and cereal bars. I think these are good especially for the mornings when my son didn't want to eat breakfast at least I felt good about him eating these high quality snacks. I would definitely buy these snacks again for my next child. I recommend them to any mother out there who's eager to try a different type of snack for there toddlers.

Good but with serious opportunities for improvement

By 

from Sonora, CA

Comments about Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars:

The kids love the flavor and I love how conveniently packaged and widely available Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars are, but they still have room for improvement. First of all, the quality of ingredients is dismal. No organic fruits of GMO-free grains. I feel so guilty knowingly feeding my children ingredients that are poisonous and have been proven to cause cancer and reproductive problems. I'm shocked that the box isn't labeled "This product contains Genetically Modified Organisms", especially since it is marketed for toddlers and children. The other problem is the price. For having ingredients comparable to most fruit-filled cookies, they cost the same as two huge packages of said cookies. Why? Because they're "made" for babies? They aren't made with better ingredients or less sugar. If you really want to feed your kids garbage like this, I recommend you at least save your money and just buy the cookies. I know I'll never buy them again.

High quality cereal bar

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars:

My toddler absolutely loves fruit and sweet foods and the Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars are one of his favorite snacks. We have tried many of the Gerber Graduates foods and my toddler loves most of these products. These cereal bars are a great choice for his snack. First, these bars do not create a huge mess. I can feed him one of these cereal bars in the car and most of the cereal bars gets in his tummy rather than in the corners of his car seat. Second, the ingredients listed on the nutritional label are all things I feel comfortable feeding my toddler. These are far more natural than Sunbelt or Nutri-Grain cereal bars and my son definitely prefers the Gerber brand to other brands of cereal bars. Finally, I like that this product is an easy snack to pack in the diaper bag. Overall, I am very impressed with this cereal bar and the variety of flavors to choose from. I definitely recommend this product to other parents!

Fine for a quick snack

By 

from Richmond VA

Comments about Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars:

These really aren't my favorite thing to offer my son, but if we are in a pinch, I don't mind letting him have one. We prefer to try and eat all-natural, organic foods, but as we all know, sometimes you just have to make do and work with what you have! I grabbed these while we were on a road trip to make sure that I had a decent snack on hand so we could avoid junk food. My son really seemed to like these and they kept him full and happy between meals, which is really all I was looking for out of these. I don't think I will buy them as a regular snack to keep at home since they don't pack much nutritional value and are really sweet, but they're a decent choice for a sometimes snack.

Quality of Ingredients
I definitely prefer to buy organic foods, but Gerber at least uses ingredients I can recognize!

Safety
Definitely keep an eye on your child while they eat this - the bar can get really mushy and sticky, so it can possibly be a choking hazard. Otherwise, these are great for kids who are starting to eat on their own!

Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars are Great!

By 

from Fort Worth, Texas

Comments about Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars:

Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars were the perfect snack for my daughter. She loved the jelly like filling. These were perfect for her sensitive stomach and her frequent constipation. The Gerber Graduates Fruit & Cereal Bars are full of grains and fiber that is great for regularity in anyone. So these bars came in handy when it came to my daughter. We would make sure we took at least two of these wherever we went because she loved them so much and they were so convenient. They are individually wrapped so you can just toss one in the diaper bag or your purse and when my daughter would get fussy and want a snack it was so easy for me to sooth her with this great bar.

Quality of Ingredients
The ingredients in the Gerber Graduates Fruit and Cereal Bars are filled with a real fruit filling that is great for a substitute for a serving of fruit. The bar is full of multigrain, vitamins, and fiber.
