Why not make homemade brown rice cereal is the question?
Like a lot of moms, I started feeding my kids brown rice cereal when they were 6 months old. I never even thought about making it homemade. The baby food companies perform some of their most impressive marketing when it comes to this tried and true first food, because while I bought it by the boxful, it never occurred to me just how easy it would be to make it on my own. I don't know why I never thought of it before because all you need is a blender and brown rice. It truly is THE easiest thing you can make your baby. And the best part is that it cost a fraction of the price as boxed rice cereal and by making your own you can purchase organic rice too!
Packed with iron, magnesium and other vitamins and minerals, homemade brown rice cereal makes a perfect first food. No more nutritionally stripped white rice cereal or spending way too much money on pretty packaging and advertising. And while you're making a batch of this recipe you could whiz up Homemade Oatmeal Cereal too. Make it on your own and you'll have a simple food that your baby will love!
