I started off with cerelac rice for my baby when she was 4 and half months. Initially I mixed a lot of water in it and made it runny, a little thicker than formula milk. Later on made it thicker and now its similar to dosa or pancake batter consistency.
She seems to like it and did not like it with sugar as suggested by many people. Im sure it also must be my influence as I love rice and can eat rice at any time of the day.
It’s a great food to start off for young babies, though mothers milk is the best till 6 months. I wanted to get my baby used to cerelac if I had to return to work.
I don’t want to start off with wheat till she is 6 months as it will be difficult to digest.
From Nestle website:
-Cerelac is a complementary food for babies after 6 months when breast milk alone can no longer cover the baby’s growing nutritional requirements.
Cereals & Milk:
-Cerelac provides the combined benefit of cereal and milk. It is free from added artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.
-Each serve of cerelac provides the goodness of cereals with 18 important nutrients.
-The Z line process in Cerelac breaks the carbohydrates into smaller and easier to digest components.
-Each serve is nutrient dense and suitable for the baby’s small tummy.
-MOTHER’S MILK IS BEST FOR YOUR BABY
