Gerber® Lil’ Bits™ Parfait
Our Miss Allie Elizabeth (Lil Bit) certainly has a mind of her own. Thankfully she is a wonderful eater and enjoys all kinds of foods. She is just turning one and has entered the “do it myself” stage which means lots of laughs while watching her learn to feed herself and of course lots of messes as self feeding can be a challenge. Today we were challenged to create a recipe using one of the Gerber® Lil’ Bits™ 3rd Food Blends. Allie was up for the challenge and enjoyed our Gerber® Lil’ Bits™ Parfait a lot!
Making our Gerber® Lil’ Bits™ Parfait is super easy as nothing needs preparing. Just assemble and serve. Oh yeah, this is my kind of dessert.
This recipe for our Gerber® Lil’ Bits™ Parfait makes about eight ounces. Our containers hold four ounces so this makes enough for mommy and baby.
1 container of Gerber® Lil’ Bits™ in your choice of fruit blends
4 ounces of yogurt in your choice of flavor
1 can of Whipped Topping
Place about 1/4 of the Gerber® Lil’ Bits™ in the serving dish
Layer about 1/4 of pudding – gently spread over top of fruit blend
Top with another layer of Gerber® Lil’ Bits™
If storing, place top on dish and keep chilled until ready to eat
If serving, top with a generous amount of whipped topping
I have to admit that I didn’t tell anyone that this was made specifically for Miss Allie. I just placed the desserts on the table and invited everyone to try them. I know..I know.. what a mean thing to do. NOT! They all loved it. Even after they were informed that they were eating Gerber® Lil’ Bits™! How’s that for a statement on how good these fruit blends taste.
Making homemade meals for Miss Allie has to be quick and easy, as well as healthy and hearty! Gerber® Lil’ Bits™ sure helps us with meal times. Often Miss Allie can and does eat the same thing we are having for meals, but there are times when do to spices or texture; she needs some thing different. Gerber® Lil’ Bits™ are just what we need to keep her happy at meals.
I am happy to know that Gerber Lil’ Bits are made with perfectly sized soft pieces of fruits or veggies to help little ones learn to self feed and master the challenge of chewing. Of course the Gerber 3rd Foods Lil’ Bits include the ingredients made at the high quality standards of GERBER®. Knowing they are made without any added starch, artificial colors or flavors Lil’ Bits is the perfect option for our little one.
Gerber® Lil’ Bits™ are available at most retail stores in the area. They are also available online at Amazon.
