Hope you are doing well! Summer is here and all of us are trying hard enough to cope up with the Heat. Summer also reminds me that it’s a great time to lose weight, focus on our dietary habits, and focus on our children’s food intake because we have some free time in hand. This got me to think that it is so important to keep a check on their food. Gone are the days when mother’s used to think that their child can eat and digest anything and everything. As much as we are conscious about our food intake, we also care about what our child needs to support his physical/mental growth. We want them to eat all the power packed Fruits and Vegetables, Proteins and Fats so that they get their daily dose of Vitamins and Minerals, ain’t I right? After all, A Healthy Child grows into a Healthy Adult.
But we do have another concern, how to prepare or source such foods that are well balanced in terms of Quality, Nutrition and Taste? While some of us choose to prepare the meals at home, the others might have a tough task in terms of Cooking, sparing out that extra time or even learning how cook! Well, it isn’t wrong at all when someone said that it takes a Village to raise a child! I want to share my secret with you which has made both of us- mom and son, super happy! The Secret is Gerber Foods.
As a new Mother, working Woman and a Wife it was definitely tough for me to juggle between all the roles. My Son has always been on the leaner side since his birth and I have always struggled to feed him well. Talk about feeding Children, and I am sure a lot of parents can feel the pain! I wanted him to gain some weight, and my main concern was his Nutrition. When a friend suggested about Gerber Products, I did my bit of research and got to know that all of their products are designed to meet the developmental needs of Children.
However, the first time that I tried Gerber food was when we were travelling. I am a stubborn Mother you see, I don’t easily trust on products that are just there on Market shelves or in some advertisement. The reason I thought of trying it out was for one, my friend really insisted and two, I needed some healthy snack and meal options during travelling for my little one. He has constipation issues; travelling would mean change of environment, food, water and activity. Hence I was even more worried because I didn’t want him to fall sick during that time. Prunes are an excellent way to cure indigestion problems and then I found this Gerber Prunes Puree. I regretted not packing more of Gerber products because not only did he enjoy the taste, but also it helped with his digestion and kept constipation at bay! The cherry on the cake was that it’s so convenient to feed; one needn’t worry about cooking, storing, spilling etc. I must say it is a boon for Mothers and definitely one of the most Healthy + Tasty food items to stock upon for Children.
Post our trip, I got a hand at the other range of Gerber Foods like the Single Grain & Multi Grain Cereals, Yogurt Melts, Nutritious Cookies and Biscuits, Purees, Snacks etc. Single Grain Cereals has options like Oatmeal/Rice whilst the Multi Grain Cereal has a combination of Whole Wheat, Whole Rye, Oatmeal Flour, Rice Flour & Barley Flour. Accept it or not, it is a task or us to prepare such meals which have an endless list of Ingredients that are tasty and meet the Nutritional requirements of our Children. My son’s favorite Yogurt is the Gerber Apple Purple Carrot Blueberry with Yogurt; it has a beautiful balance of Fruits and flavors & is a great Snack option.
Did you know that Younger Children need 3 heavy Meals and 2 Snacks in between? Well, I wasn’t aware & I would wonder about what Snacks I can offer to him apart from fruits? He loved the Gerber Arrowroot Cookies and Cinnamon Graham Crackers.
Did I forget mentioning that their products are Organic and made of real fruits and vegetables? They use nothing but the best of Ingredients which are essentially required for a baby/child. The Gerber 1st foods range is super soft and smooth so that your baby doesn’t have any trouble while eating, and accordingly the following stages have been designed to keep up with the developments of your little one. I must mention the Banana Teether wheels helped a great deal during his teething phase.
The wonderful combination of Ingredients and Taste encourage eating habits in children in their early years and are a great source of Iron which is extremely important for their overall development.
I feel that Gerber foods are specially designed for our Children so that they get their daily dose of essential Vitamins and Minerals, and I have grown to trust the brand for its Quality, Taste and Nutrition!
Thank you for visiting!
