The Gerber Baby is an iconic piece of Americana, and at least for the next year, it’ll also have a piece of Colorado attached to it! 

The newest Gerber Baby, Maddie Mendoza, calls Colorado Springs home and comes from a proud military family.

Maddie’s parents entered the 2023 Photo Search contest like thousands of other parents.

For the contest, the organization asked for a photo of the baby and a throwback photo of their mother.  As fate would have it, the Mendoza’s got the call from Gerber.

While Maddie serves as the official spokes-baby, her parents both serve our community in other ways. Crystal is a dentist and her dad Jun serves our country. He’s currently at the Air Force Academy as the allergist there for the 10th Medical Group. 

Maddie gets to be the Gerber Baby for a year and they received a cash prize they plan on using to invest in Maddie’s future.

Here’s the picture that won Maddie this year’s contest…
