Nutrition for your Crawler with Gerber Lil Bits

Let your baby enjoy Gerber Lil BitsWe have been traveling for most of August and September and wouldn’t you know it, Joey started crawling while we were away. The second he started crawling, he started putting EVERYTHING in his mouth. This child is ready for more solid foods. With his allergies, I have to watch what I give him. I can’t give him puffs or anything that you’d start most babies on, but I can start him with Gerber Lil’ Bits since it just has chunks of whatever fruit or vegetable they are eating.

Let baby learn how to eat chunky foods with Gerber Lil Bits

I can’t believe how fast this first year is going. Not only did Joey learn to crawl, but he immediately started pulling up as well. He even started cruising along the couch two days ago. Can someone tell him he’s only 9 months and walking doesn’t come for 3 more?!

Gerber Lil Bits Parfait

I love that Gerber Lil’ Bits doesn’t add any extras, it’s just fruits and vegetables so that I know what my baby is eating. That’s super important with food allergy baby. If you wanted to “beef” up baby’s food, though, you can do this simple recipe.

Gerber Lil Bits Parfait

Servings 4 servings
Author Paula Krueger


  • 1 Fruit flavored Gerber Lil' Bits I used Pear Apple Berry
  • 1 Whole Milk Baby Yogurt


  1. In 4 separate, seal-able containers layer yogurt and Lil' Bits
  2. Serve one container to baby and seal up the other 3 for different meals.

I love that this recipe adds in some dairy and is super easy to make and take. I can throw the extras in a cooler and bring with on our trip or just have them ready for the next three mornings for breakfast. Batch cooking is really important when you have a family as large as mine.

While I think Joey is growing up way too fast, I am enjoying watching him explore his world and learn new things. As long as I have nutritious foods to give him, I’m happy.
