Grayson’s First Experience with Gerber Cereal

Grayson has been working hard on sitting on his own. He is not quite there, but can sit very well supported with his Boppy pillow. He has also been practicing more sitting in grocery carts and his high chair at home. Now that he is in this phase, I thought it would be a great time to start some Gerber Cereal. I want to do everything I can to ensure good, healthy development.


So off to Walmart we went after Elin’s T-ball game last Saturday. As you can see from the pic, Grayson was pretty happy to see he was getting to start his foray into eating with Gerber Cereal. Just look at that big toothless grin.


Speaking of toothless, he is gnawing on everything right now and was eagerly trying to get into his Gerber Cereal.

Walmart had quite the selection of Gerber products to choose from. I choose the Gerber single grain Oatmeal Cereal. That’s exactly what we started Elin on four years ago and she loved it. I love that it provides Iron, Zinc, Calcium, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and six B vitamins.

If you know me well at all, you know that I research everything and therefore have a hard time making decisions because I am always weighing the pros and cons of everything. I love that going with Gerber is one decision that I don’t have to think about. Elin did so well with all their products and still loves their toddler meals. In fact, she just ate a Gerber’s ravioli meal tonight for dinner.


When we got home, we were all excited to see Grayson take his first bite. I kept telling Elin the whole time that I could remember feeding her for the first time as well with Gerber Oatmeal Cereal.

Grayson was excited and ready to eat. I think he was little apprehensive about the spoon in his mouth each time, but he seemed to really enjoy his oatmeal and has continued to every day.





Now that he is getting his start on solids, I know he will start develop more and display more brain growth. It’s bittersweet because I am loving this current age with him, but I can’t wait to see him grow and evolve. Before long, we will be deciding which Gerber vegetables to start with, but for now I am not going to think to much about that and just enjoy watching him with his oatmeal.



  1. Love love love. He is just the cutest thing ever! And I so remember those first feedings and just how exciting it is! Gah, I want another baby! Can I just borrow him for a while? 😉

  2. Too cute!! We are getting ready to start cereal with Ezra and Gerber is on my shopping list!

  3. Aww! I remember the exciting days of introducing new foods for the first time. So cute 🙂

  4. Awww sweet boy! Declan didn’t like baby cereal. He’s a weirdo. Grayson looks like he loves it though!
