Cons: a little more expensive than most baby foods.
I have an eight month old granddaughter named Brooklyn Jean. I regularly feed her Gerber's Stage 2 baby food. Recently, I discovered that Walmarts sold Gerber's Tender Harvest baby food for 69 cents per jar. This is a little higher than the regular Gerber's baby food, but it is well worth the difference!
I was first attracted to the baby food by the jar's design and the fact that the fruits and vegetables are organically grown. I am concerned over how most food is grown since the pesticides and fertilizers have an adverse effect on humans.
One of the first things I noticed when I started to feed Brooklyn Jean the Tender Harvest brand was that the texture of the food was well-blended and had more consistency! The vegetables and fruits actually smelled like grown-up food and it even tasted good.
This brand has limited varieties. One of Brooklyn's favorite meals is the spinach lasagna. I fed her the banana, oatmeal and peach, but she did not like it as well. It appeared too watery. Other varieties that I have given her are bananas and blueberries; green beans and potatoes; and the vegetable turkey and barley. I do wish that Gerber would come out with more of these wonderful exotic meals for babies.
If you heat your baby food in a dish in the microwave, please make sure you stir it well and test the temperature before you start to feed your baby. I prefer to feed Brooklyn the fruits at room temperature. I have always used the Gerber products and I feel good about their quality of baby foods.
