Lil Bits

Tracking Pixel

So I’ve shared our struggle with getting Brooks to eat fruits + veggies on the blog a few times. We’ve recently had some success with green beans, carrots, snap peas, bananas and apples! Woohoo! BUT it’s still not a regular occurrence and he’s not eating as much of the “good stuff” as I would like. I know this is going to be a constant struggle. Wah.

So when I had the opportunity to partner with Gerber to try out Gerber’s 3rd Foods® Lil Bits™ Recipes I was excited to sneak in some extra fruits and veggies into the mix! Brooks hasn’t met a puree he doesn’t like, which is great, even though he’s old enough to eat most of the fruits and veggies in their “natural form,” but at this stage, I’ll take what I can get! Ha!

In other news, how cute is that Chew U shirt they sent along for the little guy?! I love it! Ha!

So in an effort to make this a learning + tasting experience combination, we’ve been working on helping Brooks get comfortable with using the spoon + fork on his own. For so long, we’ve been having him eat with his hands {a la baby led weaning} but giving him his own spoon + fork is a whole new {completely messy} experience.

Side Note: We totally have a LEFTY on our hands!

So for the  Gerber’s 3rd Foods® Lil Bits™ Recipes we got to try out the Sweet Potato, Apple, Carrot + Cinnamon combination – and I have to say, it was a hit! I love the Lil Bits because, like the name suggests, there are little bits of the actual food in the puree mixture for the babe to practice chewing – which Brooks is already pretty good at, but everyone can always use a little extra practice, am I right?

I also think that he likes the puree mixtures because he’s been having some big back teeth coming in lately, so this probably feels really good in his mouth!
