American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win Goods from Gerber!

Every baby looks like he or she could be the Gerber Baby, no? But the sketch is of a woman named Ann Turner Cook, who was 5 months old in 1929 when her neighbor drew her for what would become the iconic baby face. She visited our offices a few years ago, and we loved it! 

Gerber is running a nationwide baby-photo search on Facebook right now. The winner will appear in an ad campaign but even better, get $50,000! You have until August 26th to upload your little one’s photo. Best of luck, maybe your own kid will be the 2012 Gerber Baby!

As for Gerber’s baby food, my own daughter was an infant when they debuted their first organics. Now, the organic recipes come in pouches that are easy to throw in your diaper bag and less heavy in your grocery bag than the traditional glass jars. (Though the jars can be recycled, so they have that going for them.) I have such fond memories of planning out baby Grace’s meals. She loved prunes and apricots most of all, so we’d often do one of those for breakfast, but always got a green vegetable in at lunch or dinner. It’s still pretty much the same for her at age 10; fruit with breakfast and broccoli or peas or salad with dinner!

I’m happy to say that Gerber is going to give one lucky family almost $110 worth of free baby food just for leaving a comment at this post. Tell me your baby’s favorite puree flavor, perhaps? You have from now through the end of the day on Wednesday, August 8th, to leave a comment. We’ll randomly pick one person to win 15 Gerber Graduate Puffs, 15 Gerber Graduate Lil’ Entrees, and 25 Gerber Organic 2nd Food Pouches, a $108.95 value. You can read the official rules here. Good luck!

    My little one is due soon! I’m having fun reading all the tips I get from Gerber as well as the magazines I’ve been reading. I just hope my little girl will love the same food as I do like green beans, bananas, apricots and anything with berry! I’m enjoying learning about all the new products that are out there. Very different from what I remember.

    First I’d like to say Gerber has so many great flavors and I love having my son try out new ones all the time! He seems to enjoy more then most of them!!! I think a few of his favorites would have to be Bananas (popular choice, I know) and Sweet Potatoes!!

    My boys love the puffs!!!

  11. by Leslie

    We still have 9 more weeks before we meet our little bundle of joy, but certainly plan on Gerber being a part of meal time in the near future.

    My baby boy is 2 months old and will start on baby food in 2 more months. As a new mom I LOVE the idea of organic baby food for him. He’s already started Gerber Rice Cereal in his milk believe it or not!! We’re looking forward to Gerber baby food!!

    Just found out my son LOVES eating his baby food on his own from the pouch. He doesnt even make a mess. And they are perfect for when you are on the run and cant sit to feed him. Would be awesome if we won!

    My daughter loves apples and sweet potatoes. She just tried some cherry vanilla puffs this week ( her first crunchy food) and she couldn’t get enough!

    I could use some gerber baby food. My daughter, CJ, is 6 months old and refuses ANYTHING but a bottle. I’m spending a small fortune trying to find SOMETHING that she will eat.

    My oldest LOVED Harvest Vegetables with Mixed Grains!! She would have to eat them for lunch EVERY DAY or she’d get mad at me. =) Now I feed them to my youngest for lunch!

  24. by Dawn L.

    On August 2, 2012 at 6:56 pm

    My youngest (baby #4) is now in the baby food stage and he has such an adventurous pallet! Gerber has always been my favorite brand of baby food (and my kids would agree) :-) I absolutely LOVE the new pouches!!

  25. by Alicia

    On August 2, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    We love gerber at our house! My 15 month old would eat the entire container of puffs in one sitting if I let her!

    My little girl loves any and all food – she’s allergic to strawberries and blueberries though.

  29. by Meagen brooklier

    On August 2, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    My daughter practically lives off the lil entrees. With two full time working parents and a newborn baby brother, its the best way to make sure shes getting a nutritious and complete dinner every night!

    My son just started eating Gerber’s rice cereal, but I’m looking forward to finding out what his favorite food is. Maybe he’ll love plums as much as I did when I was a baby.

  33. by Corey Beth

    My daughter LOVES the Gerber baby foods! Her favorites are prunes and bananas, but enjoys everything we’ve given her! I hope we win, my daughter would be so happy!

    Thanks! And Gerber posted a message about the contest, just reposting here so there’s no frustration when trying to enter:

    Photo Search Tip of the Day: Once you have entered a photo of your child, we need to take a quick look to make sure it meets the requirements. Don’t worry – this won’t take long! Just give us three working days and we’ll get back to you by email to let you know if your entry is successful!

    Addi loves her puffs she’d eat the whole container if i’d let her..her fav is the peach ones but the sweet potatoe comes in as a close second ;)

  37. by Erika Blanchard

    On August 3, 2012 at 1:17 pm

    My daughter is 7 months old and her favorite food is the Gerber Stage 1 Organic Carrots (haven’t given her much fruit yet, as I want her to get used to veggies first). The funny thing is, when she eats her carrots, she sucks her thumb after every bite – but only for a second and then opens her mouth and wants more carrots. She doesn’t do this with any other food….Excited to expand her pallet!

  38. by Starla

    On August 3, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    Anything with sweet potato is an instant winner here!

  51. by Brooke J

    On August 6, 2012 at 3:47 pm

    My little boy ZJ loves his cereal. He just tasted vegetables for the first time. I would say peas are his favorite so far. We have not tried fruits yet.

  52. by Michelle Lyon

    On August 6, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    My one year old daughter’s favorite way to receive fruit is when I squeeze an organic Gerber pouch straight into her mouth! She thinks it is very silly and opens wide.

  53. by Jessie Faralli

    On August 6, 2012 at 4:05 pm

    My little 8 month old Braelyn LOVES sweet potatoes!! We could defiantly use the help right now on getting some free food.
