National Baby Food Festival - Fremont Area Chamber of Commerce, MI

Annually held the third full week of July. Family fun and a celebration of children are the key components in our one-of-a-kind National Baby Food Festival (NBFF).  The city of more than 4,000 is transformed for one week in July into the Family Fun Capital showcasing Fremont as a great place to LIVE, WORK, & PLAY!

What would a Baby Food Festival be without those baby-oriented activities?  Even for those without infants, the Baby Crawl is a very entertaining event.

This event is designed to provide festival access to kids with special needs who are 18 years of age or younger who may not otherwise be able to attend.

Do you remember the days of feeding the baby, when it seemed more food wound up on the baby’s face, chair, and the floor, than in the baby’s mouth?  The NBFF reminds us of those days with a Baby Food Eating Contest.  Participants work in pairs trying to feed a jar of baby food to their partner – while blindfolded! 

Other festival activities include a wide variety of contests, musicians, clowns, and more. Children’s activities include frog jumping, turtle racing, bean bag toss, water balloon toss, and much more. Our Carnival, TJ Schmidt Carnival, runs Wednesday through Saturday, with many Pay-One-Price opportunities.

Our Story | Nestlé Baby&Me

More than 85 years ago none of the Gerber family could have imagined that with the light hand of a caring mother and wife, Dorothy Gerber, her husband's small cannery in the US state of Michigan would become famous all over the world. Today, Gerber ® baby food is known to parents all over the world.


The company's history began in the kitchen, where young mother Dorothy Gerber, wife of the owner of the cannery, hand-mashed mashed potatoes for their seven-month-old daughter Sally. The laborious process took a lot of time and effort - this prompted Dorothy to think:

"If a factory can make vegetable puree for

adults, it can make ready-made puree for children"

After doing the necessary research, consulting nutritionists, doctors and economists in 1927, a trial batch of the product was produced .


By the end of 1928 , after the new product was approved, five varieties of Gerber® baby puree were produced..

Within six months, Gerber® products were in huge demand across America: baby food was available in every major grocery store in every corner of the United States.


Gradually, Gerber® puree became known in all countries of the world

Parents appreciated not only the high palatability of ready-made meals, but also a significant saving of their own effort and time compared to the usual way of preparing baby food. nine0003

Two years earlier, the company held a competition for

The best illustration for advertising Gerber®


in a figure sent by by the artist Dorothy Coop , was an incomplete Portrait of a little girl - Domeri Turner - Docori Turner - Docori Turneri - Docori Turneri.

Advertising with this illustration was so successful that the portrait of the girl's face became the official logo of the Gerber brand in 1931 ® , registered as a trademark.


Gerber® experts were among the first to offer a product of impeccable quality, that meets all the needs of young gourmets and at the same time is completely safe.

The tempered glass used in puree jars allows for heat treatment methods that kill harmful microbes.


The company's specialists have developed the first ever baby food cap with a special tab - an indicator of tightness.

When the lid is opened for the first time, a characteristic popping sound is heard, , which helps parents to determine the freshness of the baby puree.

Beginning in 1936, Dorothy Gerber began to personally answer

every letter that came to the company's address.
