Gerber Graduates Fruit and Veggie Melts Review

Asking my son what he would like to eat will always get you the same response: “nuggets and fries.” Getting him to eat anything healthy is a challenge everyday. Now that Gerber Graduates has come up with fruit and veggie melts he is eating healthy and doesn’t even know it.

GERBER® GRADUATES® Fruit & Veggie Melts™ Snacks are made with a NutriProtect™ blend of vitamins A, C and E for healthy growth and natural immune support and each package delivers 3 fruit/vegetable servings with a taste toddlers love.”


If you look at the ingredients list on most toddler snacks, most of them are quite unfamiliar. However, that is not the case with the Gerber Graduates Fruit and Veggie Melts. My son really enjoyed the Very Berry Blend and the ingredients list read like a parent’s dream: Squash, Apple, Banana, Carrot, Strawberry, Blueberry and several other fruit and vegetable juices with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.  Every bag contains three servings of fruit/veggies and only 25 calories and only 4 grams of sugar per serving. My son absolutely loves these melts and ever since we received them they have been a staple on my grocery list. Check these out at your local grocery store along with Gerber Graduates meals, drinks and other snacks.

This post is the opinion of Beth of Experimental Mommy.  While a sample product was received to facilitate this review, all opinions remain 100% honest.


  1. Cool! I have not tried much of the Gerber graduates, or any of the store bought foods to be honest. My daughter just turned 10months old and I have always made everything she eats myself – including yogourt and polenta! However, I am starting back at work in september and with daycare integration, her teething and the such she has become a really fussy eater and I am petrified that she will not get what she needs… nice to know there is something out there I could potentially grab on the go.

  2. Our 2 year-old daughter LOVES the Truly Tropical blend variety. Of course, there’s very few of the Gerber graduates items she hasn’t loved. I’m afraid the poor child is going to grow up with a strange affinity for a certain shade of yellow and blue together.
