These Gerber Lil Entrees have been around for awhile, and since I both have a child and have worked with children for quite some time I have lots of experience with them. I have to say, out of all the toddler friendly "tv dinner" style meals that are available for purchase these are by far the best in my book. They have a ton of different choices that are foods that appeal to toddlers. Not only that they are much healthier than some of the other options. I have tasted them myself as well, and they actually taste like the food that they are supposed to be, not only that but I can actually identify everything in them. Yes they are going to be a little more expensive, but isn't your little ones health worth a little extra money. I definitely recommend these meals to parents or those who work with kids. Be warned that these are good for kids who are feeding themselves and can chew, not younger than that.
