FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Gerber Products Co. is expanding its line of premium baby foods and introducing four new dinner purees. Gerber is now part of the Nestle Infant Nutrition business.
Three of the puree varieties — garden vegetables with whole wheat pasta, vegetable risotto with cheese, and macaroni and cheese with vegetables — have DHA, and the new chicken with country vegetables and rice variety is organic.
Gerber also is re-launching its organic cereal varieties.
"It is important to introduce babies to the healthy tastes of fruits, vegetables and whole grains," said Jillian Rado, regulatory specialist for Nestle Infant Nutrition. "Gerber’s new varieties, including purees with DHA and organic foods for babies, provide healthy and flavorful options for parents who are concerned about providing their infants with the best nutrition."
Gerber already has six puree varieties with DHA.
