BABY FOOD FESTIVAL

Profile America - Saturday, July 19th. It's time to pass the strained peaches or maybe the junior green beans. Fremont, Michigan is celebrating the 24th annual National Baby Food Festival, which concludes today. The town of 4,000 is home to the Gerber Baby Food Company and is welcoming thousands of visitors to enjoy entertainment as well as baby food eating contests by adults and a baby crawl race. Today in the U.S., there are around 4 million babies being cradled or held in parents' laps for their feedings. Millions more ages 1 through 3 have graduated to high chairs and are transitioning from baby food. Companies engaged in specialized canning, including baby foods, generate $7.3 billion in sales annually. You can find more facts about America's people, places and economy from the American Community Survey at www.census.gov.
