There is no “logo” in my mind more iconic than the Gerber baby. Seeing that little black and white baby photo on a product gives me a small sense of security, and memories of my own childhood. It also makes me think of all the milestones Gerber was there for with my own children. My kids were always Gerber babies from their first taste of fruits and vegetables to watching them gobble up those little puffs, self-feeding for the first time.
"S/He Could Be The Gerber Baby"
Have you noticed that being compared to the Gerber Baby has become the go to compliment for all adorable babies – and all babies are adorable! I’m not so sure that is a new thing, either. I can remember my Great Grandmother telling stories about how my Grandmother should have been the Gerber Baby. I mean, who doesn’t want or think their baby deserves to be the Gerber baby? As a proud mom myself, I know what it is like to go crazy with the camera and want to share all those memorable moments of your little cutie with the world. Well, if you love to share photos and believe you have the next Gerber Baby on your hands... Listen up!

If you’ve ever thought “my baby could be the next Gerber baby”, now is the time to get that camera out. The photo does not have to be of your child enjoying Gerber foods, it can be any photo of your child that you feel captures them. Pictures will be judged on (1) visual appeal of the child in the photo; (2) expressiveness of the child in the photo; and (3) consistency with Gerber’s heritage and mission.
