Get a Good Start the Gerber Way

Babies to Toddlers. What a change that can be. You go from swaddling your little one to chasing them around the house and even though they will always remain our babies, they really aren’t babies anymore. They are these tiny humans with their own witty personality. These tiny humans have different needs then babies, this is why its time to Get a Good Start the Gerber Way.

Gerber-Good-Start_001Toddlers are these little people who are ready to see the world. Everything turns into “What’s that?” and it just get worse as they get older. Its time to step away from formula and bottle feedings and move onto something a bit more exciting. I want to share how to Get a Good Start the Gerber way!

Now that you are stepping away from formula, you are stepping towards toddler drinks. They are ready to explore all new foods and drinks if you allow. Gerber Good Start Grow for Toddler Tummies is made for our toddlers. It’s a nutritions toddler drink filled with essential nutrients for toddlers. It comes in a powder form and even though you can mix it with just water to give your toddler the drink they deserve, you can do so much more with it.


See Nini here was excited to try Gerber Good Start. He said “For MEEEE?”, “Yes Nini, for you.” However, I don’t believe he would have enjoyed his drink with just water. Nine LOVES his banana’s and strawberries, and i mean LOVES LOVES LOVES! I couldn’t make our smoothie without him trying to eat all the banana’s and strawberries…. Silly Boy! =P


Nini was so excited when I finally gave him his smoothie. He had already eaten a banana and was trying for the strawberries, because you know, they are just that yummy! A smoothie was the best way to go for us. Nini was able to get a more exciting drink that I know he’d enjoy and still get the benefits of Gerber Good Start.


Nini was very happy about his smoothie. Toddlers are at a stage where new foods and drinks can be exciting. With Nini loving his fruit, it was an easy choice to make for us. A simple smoothie that is filled with fruit would be the way for us. I can’t say for sure if he would drink his Toddler Drink with just water.

With a smoothie, I can add in our Gerber Good Start Stage 3 without him even knowing or asking what is it. Smoothies are a great way to hide other goodies. I don’t have to get the “No No No, I’m not drinking that” from Nini because he loves his fruit.


Gerber Good Start Stage 3 is perfect for any toddler. You can’t go wrong no matter what you do. You can simple mix with water or you can add it into a homemade smoothie. Which ever way works for you and your toddler, either way, your Toddler will be getting all the nutritious perks of this Toddler Drink.

Gerber Good Startg Stage 3 is designer with essential nutrients for toddles. It contains DHA and Iron to help support brain development, which is super important for our little ones.

    That definitely looks like a good start to the day! How cute! I think they had just started doing toddler formula when my kids were toddlers. Any extra vitamins and nutrition I think is great.

    When the twins were so much younger, they definitely loved it when I made smoothies for them. It’s nice to know that gerber has this variety! The recipe is perfect, and with the smile on your little one’s face, I’m sure he enjoyed every bit of it.

    I would have never thought to make a smoothie with the Gerber products. That’s such a great idea too. I wish I would have thought of this when my girls were younger.

    I was a super picky eater as a kid. Honestly, I’m still on the picky side as an adult! I love that drinks like this exist to help kids get the nutriton they need even if they aren’t good about eating the foods that have what they need.
