I know there are guidelines regarding what can be called organic on a label, but how much clout does one put in Gerber's Organic baby food line? It definitely has a different texture and taste and the ingredients read well.<br><br>
We've been using these and prefer them over the others. Although I have asked, I have only recently been made aware of our local farmer's market, but still some of the labels on this food sounds better than what I might mix up.<br><br>
Anyway, just wanted opinions. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I don't have any opinions on the organic food, I think it is called "tender Harvest." I have fed it to ds a few times and he seemed to like it very much. I just wanted to point out that not all of the Tender Harvest foods are organic so if you are wanting to feed Kenny organic only be careful and check labels closely. You might need to bring an oxygen tank with you, not sure if you can hold your nose that long!

all food labeled organic has to meet the new usda standards. so you can trust them imo. i fed evan gerber's as well as earth's best and healthy times and i thought they were fine.

Jane, I thought I remembered reading that - about the new USDA standards for the organic seal.<br><br>
These are Tender Harvest and state 'organically grown' at the top with the 'organically grown' certified seal on it. The side states: "Organic ingredients used by Gerber are grown by certified growers who use organic practices." I should go to their website and see if they indicate who they support.<br><br>
However, I'm glad to discover that they aren't too terribly expensive, by comparison. One jar is 75 cents - knowing it is organic is worth 75 cents to me.<br><br>
Right - hold my nose BECAUSE THEY ARE ALWAYS IN THE DIAPER AISLE! Uggh - why oh why. It is FOOD for crying out loud - not a toiletry or diaper item. Geez louise. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:

I have used the gerber (love that spinach lasagna!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> and earths best. I think the gerber has the strange combinations. I mean, carrots potatoes and beef? why not just call it, oh, I don't know, BEEF STEEW??<br><br>
My best friend, mother of four, remarked the other day that shopping for baby food in jars is so fun in the beginning. It's like there's so much to choose from. But by the time they are almost ready for real table food, it's just not inspiring anymore. Does anyone feel like that? Of course, there are just some things I will not try to give D.W. those "desserts" sound disgusting to me.<br><br>
I steam a lot of frozen vegetables for my guy. He's as good a chewer as my best friends 16 month old and he has six teeth for crushing those cheerios. He loves brussel sprouts and brown rice. And watching him chase the peas around the table is a hoot!<br><br>
Totally OT, does anyone have a dog that has clued into a new source of treats in the house? My son is not my dog's favorite, but she can't resist him at the table!

Yep, our Jack can't stand Kenny when being chased about on the ground, but he definitely camps out below the high chair at meal time. :LOL

Jonny seemed to like them when he would eat baby food, but dang, the ones with brown rice in them made some nasty smelling diapers!<br><br>
My dog usually doesn't like Jonny much either, but mealtime he LOVES him, Jonny is always feeding him something.

At my house it's the cats that rule and they know the high chair is the place to be at mealtime....funny thing is Johnny has figured out that he can get the cats attention by heaving food over the side<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
I was trying to buy all organic (Gerber and Earth's Best) but the selection is a little limited (and what is up w/ those non-recyleable plastic containers that Gerber is going to?)....<br>
Anyway DS has decided he prefers the cherrios and watermelon diet....w/ a little yogurt to round things out......<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
