Ingredients in baby foods weren’t something I was thinking when we started to buy foods for our baby. In stage 1 we started with Gerber organics and were fine but when our baby reaches stage 2 the options of fruits was so limited that we started to search other brands, we found that Beech Nut offers a better variety in the fruit category. The fruit combinations are great, but the most important of all is the ingredients.
The ingredients in Beech Nut fruits are the main fruits water necessary for preparation and vitamin C, that’s all. All Natural ingredients in Beech Nut but in the other hand Gerber ingredients include the main fruit ingredients, water and sugar. It is clear that the better choice is Beech Nut I don’t want to give sugar to my baby other than the natural fruit sugar and no more added then that.
I like some product of Gerber, like organics but if is about fruits variety and naturally made my vote is for Beech Nut fruits. Other fact is that some Gerber fruits are only 3.5 oz and Beech Nut is all 4 oz.
