Gerber Organic Snacks – a healthy range of snacks for toddlers

Snack times are always stressful for me because it is a time when children don’t want a meal, but they want something that is fun and quick to eat. My focus is on giving them something healthy, but kids want something entirely different.

This is when I came across Gerber animal crackers. They are so much fun that it is enticing not just for the toddlers but for older kids as well.

First Experience with Gerber

When my kids were smaller I trusted Gerber organic toddler food when we traveled. It was easy to carry and simple to use. They have some great Gerber® Organic snacks, options like Puffs, cereals and Yogurt Melts that are made with whole grains.

I came across Gerber for the first time when I was travelling to Singapore. My son was a toddler back then and I was worried about him not having enough nutrition while we were on the trip. A friend suggested gerber and I remember shopping like there was no tomorrow, because there were so many flavors and choices. Also the fact that Gerber is a Nestle brand made the decision easy for me.

My kid had enjoyed eating cereals, puffs and purees when we were there and I had even picked up a few to carry back home.
