I was very surprised at how well my daughter took to eating Gerber squash since it was the first vegetable I gave her when I first started giving her solids. I was also rather surprised at how sweet of an aroma it seemed to have since I don't think of sweetness when I think of squash. I think Gerber's squash really helped me with getting my daughter started on vegetables and also with transitioning her into eating other, not so sweet vegetables especially since I stupidly made the mistake of starting my daughter off on fruits first rather than vegetables like her pediatrician suggested I should do. I think feeding kids Gerber baby food is a somewhat good way to get them used to eating fruits and vegetables when you do start giving them table foods so they know how the food tastes beforehand without all of the added seasonings. This makes me most definitely want to try giving her real cooked squash when she gets a little older.
