One of my favorite purees to get are the Gerber Lil' Bits. I really like these purees because they have little bits of fruit or veggies to help baby learn how to master chewing. Gerber also carefully selects their ingredients to meet high quality standards and does not include any added starch, artificial colors or flavors.
I use Gerber Lil' Bits to make yogurt parfaits for Elliott. The baby yogurt on the market has so many additional ingredients and sugar added which I am just not comfortable feeding my child. Therefore I buy organic plain whole milk yogurt and mix the Gerber Lil' Bits into the yogurt. It is also much more economical to make a huge batch of it this way rather than buying the pre-made sugary stuff.
I put it directly on her highchair and let Elliott go to town. As you can tell, she loves it! She also works on her fine motor skills by picking up the lil' bits!
Some other ways we use Gerber Lil' Bits in baby led weaning:
Added to pasta sauce for additional nutrients and protein. Our favorite flavor to use is the Herbed vegetable, pasta and chicken
As a topping for pancakes or waffles instead of syrup. Our favorite flavor to use is the Apple Blueberry
Mixed with water and yogurt to make popsicles. These are great for teething and the lil' bits add a fun surprise as they melt! Our favorite flavor to use is the Banana Apple Mango
