Gerber Arrowroot Biscuits are a perfect first biscuit for your baby. These yummy baked snacks are specially designed to quickly soften and are easily mashed with or without teeth, making them easy to chew and swallow.
Perfect First Finger Food
Using a mixture of enriched wheat flour and arrowroot flour, the Nestlé Gerber Arrowroot Biscuits have a unique texture that is crisp on the first munch, yet softens and mashes quickly for easy chewing and swallowing. A snack that is both tasty and nutritious, the biscuits are fortified with Vitamin E and Zinc that are essential for your child’s growth and development. Nestlé Gerber Arrowroot Biscuits are recommended for children from 10 months, or children who are accustomed to chewing solid foods.
Breast milk is best for babies. The World Health Organisation (WHO) and Health Promotion Board (HPB) recommend exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. At around six months of age (but not before 4 months), infants should receive nutritionally adequate and age-appropriate complementary foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.
Nestlé Singapore fully recognises breast milk’s primacy, value and superiority and supports exclusive breastfeeding as recommended by the WHO.
The content on this website is intended as general information for Singaporean residents only and should not be used as a substitute for medical care and advice from your healthcare practitioner. The HPB recommends that infants start on age-appropriate complementary foods at around 6 months, whilst continuing breastfeeding for up to 2 years or beyond to meet their evolving nutritional requirements. If no longer breastfeeding, toddlers can switch to full cream milk after 12 months. This should be complemented by a good variety of solid foods from the four main food groups (fruits, vegetables, grains, meat and alternatives).
