Babies are born with iron stored up naturally in reserves but those reserves may be depleted around 4-6 months. Breast-milk is naturally low in iron so around this time it is especially important for breastfed babies to have food with iron in their diet. Iron helps support learning abilities which is why it is so important to make sure there is a good source of Iron in their diet. Experts like dietitians and pediatricians recommend iron fortified cereals like Gerber’s to be a part of the baby’s diet, especially if they’re 6-12 months.
I feed Lee Lee Gerber’s cereal every morning for breakfast. They offer a wide variety of cereal that is perfect for all ages of development such as sitter, crawler, and toddler! Along with different flavors that contained peach, strawberries, apples, and bananas.

What I think:
What do I think? That is a good question. I think it is important for little ones to get the right amount of iron to help support healthy development. Moms worry about so much and we only want what is best for our families. Most moms are on the go all day.
Gerber realizes that families are always on the go and that babies need the right nutrition. They found several ways to help out the average family. One of which is their nutritious cereals. Their cereal has made my life a lot easier. The cereals are easy to make, provides my bab with the extra iron he needs , and taste great. I know this because my son chows down on it in the mornings! Did you know that just two servings of Gerber infant cereal meet 100% of your baby’s daily iron needs!?
