    Mommies,

    LO is 6 months old now, i am planning to introduce Gerber/Heinz food which would be handy when we go out. I heard that Heinz is better than Gerber...please suggest me which one is best and what are all the flavours we can get it.
    BIL is coming this week and planning to get it from there...so planning to try few and while DH coming can stock more.

    I think Heinz custard would be yummy...any thoughts?

    padmini, if your BIL is coming down,maybe he can get earths best...they have lots of varieties.
    for cereals i prefer the indian ones, easum,nestum.DD has started to HATE cerelac..

    i only give her easum/nestum with veggie soup now.

    but for bottled foods,earths best has very good choices.

    If you live in India, why don't you use fresh veg purée for the child? In India one has daily fresh markets that sell vege/ fruits, so have your maid pressure cook fresh items and run them through the food processor/mixed.

    If you want, for travel purpose, just keep a couple of jars of Gerber/heinz apple, banana, broccoli, carrot, spinach purées. At six months it is difficult to digest other things. Also introduce one new item every other week, so the little ones digestive system does not get overloaded!
