When I started solid foods with Maia, I was a scared. In the first place, I didn’t want to introduce the wrong food at the wrong time. I waited until she had the readiness signs. As a first time mom, I didn’t want to make it wrong. Not to mention, baby puree are the easiest way to introduce solids to babies. Because, that way they get used to textures and tastes. Together with Maia we present to you our Gerber’s Breakfast Time.
To begin with, I remember when my mom and grandmas made me for breakfast cornstarch creams or what we boricuas call “maizena”. This was my favorite! First, because it’s creamy texture and second, because of its sweet taste. Now Maia loves it too. So, today we decided to spice it up a little and we added Gerber Lil’ Bits in flavor Island Fruit Blend.
Additionally, Lil’ Bits is design to help your little one learn to chew. I love the lil’bits in it, giving a surprise to your baby while eating. This helps Maia to start loving her favorite fruits like for example: apple and mango. For instance, we chose to try today Island Fruit Blend. Maia loved the apples lil’bits in it. That is to say, Gerber’s Lil’ Bits eases transition to table food.
