great for introducing solid foods!

5

I have bought the gerber graduates puffs since my first child was ready to move on to solid foods. I remember being totally freaked out about her choking on them and when I first started her out on them I broke them into smaller pieces and when she did okay with that I have her them whole. They melt easily and are easy to chew. They have a ton of flavors and they are all good. My kids favories are sweet potato, banana, and blueberry. I love all of the gerber line snacks. My kids always seemed to love the textures and flavors. I love that gerber puts the age ranges on their products to better help understand what foods and snacks are appropriate for babies and toddlers. They explain it all on the package labels so you know you are buying something that is good for your child's age. These are great for on the go or at home. I always keep a bottle with us for a quick snack. They are great for dumping out on the stroller trays when you are shopping or walking around. My kids always wanted a snack when we were in the middle of something so they are good to have on hand for those times. They taste great and dissolve easily without much chewing needed. They stay fresh in the containers and are very reasonably priced. My older kids who are way beyond needing these still eat their little brothers sometimes because they taste great! I like them too. I try the kids snacks and I'm always impressed how gerber snacks are so full of flavor but yet made healthier then a lot of snacks out there. I recommend them to everyone for on the go and they are great for helping introduce solid foods to baby.

Puffs are good for little hands!

I am a big fan of Gerber Puffs. The sweet potato puffs were just as great as all the other kinds of Gerber Puffs out there. When my son was little he ate puffs all the time. This wasn't his favorite kind, but he would still eat them up. I really like that these are made of whole grains. These are nice because I didn't have to worry as much about my son choking on them. The are small enough and pretty much start melting as soon as they put them in their little mouths. They get really mushy and soft fast. These were so handy when my child was young. They are easy for on the go. You can pop a can into the diaper bag or put them in a little container for travelling. These are also easy for babies and toddlers to pick up. These are a fun snack for them. If I had another baby I would definitely use these again. Quality of Ingredients For a snack food these had pretty good ingredients. I like that they are made of whole grains. Safety These are really easy for little ones to eat. They soften fast and aren't easy to choke on.

A great snack food for babies and toddlers!

My older children absolutely love Gerber Sweet Potato Puffs. Gerber is a trusted name in our household and these puffs are no exception. I start feeding these puffs to my children when they are around eight months old. The feature that I like the most about these puffs (as compared to other food like Cheerios or small pieces of banana) are that they dissolve when they come in contact with saliva. I am not concerned that my children will choke when eating these puffs. I also recognize all of the ingredients that are listed on the nutritional label which helps put my mind at ease and makes this snack a healthy choice for my children. Overall, I am very impressed with the Gerber Sweet Potato Puffs. My children enjoy eating this food and we always have a container of these puffs in the diaper bag! I highly recommend the sweet potato flavor and the other flavors of Gerber puffs. Safety These puffs dissolve on contact with saliva which makes them a safe choice for older babies and toddlers.

Fast and easy snack

5

As a parent it's so difficult to spend extra time on preparing a healthy snack. The Gerber Graduates Sweet Potato Puffs are so easy, fast, and reliable to be a safe and healthy snack. The puffs are small enough that I'm not worried my child will choke on it. Some baby snacks are huge but the size of these puffs are so perfect. The taste is good. They are not heavily flavored but they have a nice taste. I have tried them and I actually thought they were tasty. They are good for babies without all teeth. The puffs are so light they are easy to digest. I also love the container they come in. Simply pour a few out and pop the lid back on! I also feel that they are priced fairly. You can also find coupons for this product and they are available at most grocery stores in the baby isle. The only problem I have with this product are the preservatives in the ingredients. I wish Gerber would make a natural version.

Baby tasted mom approved delicious

Gerber puffs are a great snack for any occasion. They are great for when little ones are just learning to pick up foods and they are great for traveling, they are not messy and they clean up easily. They also dissolve very quickly and easily so it's easy for a little one to chew with little to no teeth. They are also very tasty, and even my older daughter enjoys them which is great because they give her a little extra nutrition for the times that she refuses to eat much.

My daughter loved these!

The Gerber Graduates Sweet Potato Puffs are great for babies learning how to feed themselves. They are small enough that they cannot choke on them but big enough that they can be picked up with little effort. One thing I really liked about these was that my daughter didn't really have to chew them at all, she could just mash them around in her mouth and once they got wet they would dissolve very easily. This relieved a lot of my worry that she was going to choke on them. My daughter really loved these as a snack and when I tried them myself I could see why. They had a great sweet taste that would keep my daughter interested but they weren't too sweet to where I felt like they weren't healthy for her to be eating. I also liked that they came in a very portable container. They were great for taking along on trips and could also be used in the car if you wanted. Gerber found a good way to make a container that could be carried with you but the cover stayed on tight enough so that you didn't have to worry about spilling. I am happy that this was one of the first snacks my daughter started eating. And the first time I gave them to her she picked them up and ate them with ease. So not only were they providing for her nutritionally they were also helping her develop her motor skills. I would definitely recommend these to all parents of young children and I plan on using them again in a couple of months when my son starts to eat food. Thanks Gerber for making another great product!

Great snack for baby but not mom.

My baby loves Gerber Graduates sweet potato puffs. They are great for mastering the pincer grasp and learning to self feed, and my daughter loves eating them. They dissolve easily so there is no choking hazard worry. In my opinion, the flavor is terrible. I don't understand why my baby likes it. I also feel concerned that it's not as healthy as it seems. It has whole grains and sweet potato puree but the sugar content seems high and it lacks any substance. It doesn't provide calories or fat, and my daughter is in a very low weight percentile. I prefer a different snack for my baby.

Great snack for young toddlers

5

My children both loved these snacks. These were the first snacks we gave our children. Neither of my children had any teeth to speak of until they were almost a year old. The staple Cheerios seemed a little hard for them very early on. I really liked that these snacks dissolved so easily in their mouths. We felt that it was easy on their tummies and easy to swallow that way. They were also good for their dexterity. However, we did have problems with them sticking to the children's hands so they occasionally had problems getting them all the way in their mouth. My children loved the taste so much that we still bought these as a treat for them long after they had moved on to more advanced snacks. They are great snacks for traveling in the car. Safety These snacks are so light and dissolve easily in the mouth so I did not worry about them being a choking hazards as all with my little ones.

The first finger food my son really liked.

5

This was the first finger food that my son really gravitated to when he started feeding himself. The puffs are very light and have a subtle sweet potato taste. (I always like to try a little of each new thing we feed the kids, so I can understand just what we are putting into their mouths and tummies.) The taste is not overwhelming, so you don't have to worry about picky eaters being put off. This is a great introductory food and snack, but it is definitely not nutrient-rich enough to be a meal. The puffs come in a plastic tube package that makes a great portable container that easily fits in a diaper bag for travel. Quality of Ingredients Gerber has long had a reputation for good, high-quality ingredients. It's the brand I was raised on and the brand I trust to give to my children. Safety On occasion, my son would stuff his mouth too full, and I could see how that could become a choking hazard. I would never leave him unattended while eating. When he was given just one at a time; however, I couldn't see much danger with this product.
