Gerber Juices Are Just Fine!

Pros: No added sugar, natural juices, economical, great flavors!

Cons: None for Brooklyn!

Our granddaughter Brooklyn Jean loves Gerber juices. She is now fourteen months old and she has been drinking it for over eight months! It provides her with a full day supply of Vitamin C, an essential nutrient that all babies need. Vitamin C helps maintain bones, teeth, blood vessels, and forms collagen ( a protein that holds tissues together). A single serving of any Gerber juice provides your child with 100 % of the daily value of Vitamin C. Gerber fruit and vegetable juices give at least 60% of the daily value of Vitamin A that a baby needs.

We have given Brooklyn Gerber Apple Juice, Pear Juice, White Grape Juice and Mixed Fruit Juice. Not only are these juices loaded with Vitamin C, they have no added sweeteners, no artificial flavors and no preservatives. Her pediatrician recommends only four ounces of juice daily. If Brooklyn gets too much juice, she usually has diarrhea. This juice is in addition to her 2% milk that she is now drinking.

Hopefully one day we will get Brooklyn to try the Apple Carrot Juice, it has 80% of the daily values of vitamin A for each serving. Vitamin A keeps skin and mucous membranes healthy and resistant to infection. Vitamin A is essential for the growth of children,especially in the growth of bones and teeth. The carrot flavor is too strong for her palate so we are happy that she will drink other flavored juices.

Gerber juices are made from concentrate. If your child does not drink all of the juice, it must be refrigerated once it is opened and will keep for about 2-3 days. The following is the nutritional facts on Gerber Apple Cherry Juice (4 ounces):

The ingredients for Gerber Apple Cherry Juice is apple and cherry juice from concentrate with water for reconstitution, apple and cherry juice concentrates and Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C).

It is also important to note that there is an expiration date on the top of the lid. If the safety button on the lid has been broken (popped up) do not use!

We usually purchased Brooklyn's juices in the 4 ounce bottle because it is more convenient to use when we are traveling. You can also buy it in the 32 ounces and 64 ounces bottles, which are plastic, but must be refrigerated after opening.

Gerber juices come in a variety of flavors including, apple,orange, pear, white grape, apple banana, apple cherry, apple cranberry, apple grape,apple prune, banana strawberry, mixed fruit, tropical blend, and apple sweet potato! You can even get the mixed fruit juice or the banana juice with Yogurt or just plain spring water. I think that this wide assortment of flavors allows you to find the ones that your baby will like! It even comes in apple carrot and apple potato juices.

Gerber juices are economical and very easy to use. Brooklyn's favorite juices are apple and pear. The flavors are so mild that we do not have to dilute them with water since she is older! We would recommend the Gerber brand to any baby that is able to tolerate fruit or vegetables juices!
