Gerber Smart Sips Review and Giveaway

It’s all relative isn’t it? When Isaac was eating baby food I was sure to taste every single one while my friends looked on in digust! “I’m just curious” I’d reply, wondering if there was no food I wouldn’t dare try. While babies love baby food us adults not so much. Kinda like the new Graduates Smart Sips I was sent for Isaac to try. Let’s just say I tried it and although I wasn’t crazy about it, he loved it and gobbled it up. As the Mum what I was crazy about was the great content and lack of yucky sweeteners.

Not only did the kind folks at new Media Strategies send me some to try but they shared with me a little science and I’m giving some Smart Sips away. Did you know?

* Almost 100% of toddlers don’t get enough of an essential nutrient in a given day (FITS, 2002)
* 75% of toddlers get too much saturated fat (FITS, 2002)
* 25% of toddlers are not eating any fruit or vegetable in a given day (FITS, 2002)
* More than 50% of toddlers do not get enough essential omega 3 fat (alpha linolenic acid) in a given day (FITS, 2002)

Graduate Smart Sips beverages have no added sugars and contain 15 essential vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fat to support your toddler’s healthy growth and development. What’s more, they’re great for your on-the-go life – no refrigeration is necessary prior to opening and they fit easily in a bag or lunch box.

  1. I tried this before julia and Jack tried this also. They hated it. Oh well. You win some you lose some. I think if I would have froze it, and then blended it. It would have been accepted more freely. IMO.

  2. I actually really like most baby foods and I will finish it if my son doesn't finish an container. I like the mango by Gerber.

  3. Nope, never tried the jarred stuff. Wouldn't buy it. I did try the boxes barley cereal. That is when I stopped giving her the boxed infant cereals, if barley tastes worse than paste, they're doing something too it that isn't good for baby 😀

    The drinks sound really interesting! Thanks!

  4. I'm subscribed 😀

  5. Yes, I have tried just about everything I put into my 1 year old. Sometimes I wonder how she eats some of the stuff I feed her and some of it is actually good. My favorites were sweet potato baby food and the cheese puffs snacks (not sure what the real name is). Oh, and the fruit snacks/roll.

    I remember loving the vanilla pudding baby food when I was a teenager – Don't ask! But I never gave either of my kids "dessert" babyfood themselves! If I wanted them to have sugar I wasn't paying a dollar for a small jar of it! But since with my younger I made most of his babyfood until he hit stage 3 and beyond. I would taste it to make sure it turned out okay.

  11. I tried some of my son's baby food, when he was still eating it. My favourite was Sweet Potato Cinnamon, by Earth's Best. It tasted like pumpkin pie! 🙂

  12. I tried every baby food my daughter ate, and I usually did not find them very tasty. She,on the other hand, loved most of them. I liked the fruit ones best, especially the pears and bananas.

  13. I have tried many and I love all the fruits but the gerber apple strawberry banana is the best.

  16. I have never tried babyfood!
    Sometimes it looks good though!

  17. I have tried baby food and I'd say my favorite is definitely sweet potatoes. If I could get them for free, I'd probably carry a jar with me at all times for a quick snack! 🙂

    Yes, I try baby food before giving it to my kids. I think I like the applesauce the best. It seems like it has a hint of cinnamon taste to it. Yummy! wrzylstra at gmail dot com

  26. I always loved the banannas and the blueberry buckle them are my favs. everything else i tried was just gross, the good thing was once i tried it i didnt have to try it again.
