When you spend a lot of time running errands, visiting family, going out to eat, visiting doctors, etc… Your kids often wind up eating on the run. Older kids are easy- a pack of crackers, a granola bar, and you’re ready to go. With crawling and walking (or nearly walking babies) it gets a little harder. They are not yet ready for solid table food but need something a bit more substantial than pureed foods. Gerber Lil’ Bits are a new 3rd food that gives your little movers something with a little more “bite” to it. Yummy Flavors like Sweet Potato Apple Carrot & Cinnamon. I turned them into On The Go Baby Parfaits by layering them with other ingredients and adding a spoon.
Gerber Lil’ Bits contain small soft pieces of fruits and veggies to help transition your little one into chewing. I used a fruit and a veggie option to make up a couple variations for grab and go. These are great to take to restaurants or to hand off to grandma when she is on babysitting duty!

Attach a spoon or fork, I picked up a cheap multipack and attached one to each container so it was truly a grab and go.
