Is Gerber Formula GMO Free?
Unfortunately, most baby formula nowadays has GMOs in it. GMO formula
has quietly entered the marketplace and many parents buy it for their
baby without realizing that they are doing so. Enfamil organic and
Gerber use GMOs.
Non GMO baby formula will help moms and dads who want a safer food
for their baby. While breastfeeding is always best, mothers sometimes
supplement with formula because they are not producing enough milk.
Parents may also choose to feed their baby with formula for other
reasons. For example, women with HIV and those on chemotherapy
medication are not advised to breastfeed.

GMO soy may be used in some soy based baby formula brands. Parents
also have to look out for GMO corn and other genetically modified
ingredients. Sometimes genetically modified algae is used during the
processing of infant formula.

can help mothers who are not producing enough milk. The leaves of the
moringa plant are rich in several nutrients that breastfeeding mothers
need. If you use infant formula, it is better to avoid those that are
made with GMOs.
