We have five boys and another baby on the way. I enjoy making the baby's food, and just do not want to buy the prepackaged yuck. My babies loved it so much, you have to make sure not to feed them too quickly so they won't get a brain freeze.

The Crew and I love the flavor of this sweet, fruity treat. We even recruited some mini Crew members for the taste test, Caroline (8 months) and Susannah Grace (19 months)! It was a winner all the way around. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
