Making your own baby cereal

Making your own baby cereal does not need to be a hard thing to do. Making one from scratch is as difficult as imagined. For those who prefer to make their own baby cereal instead of buying the ready to use ones, you can use brown rice or white rice and grind them or even buy the fine rice flour available on the stores.

You can try this baby cereal recipe, which is easy to prepare.

 

Baby Rice Cereal

Ingredients:

–       ¼ cup or 1 oz of rice powder (white or brown rice)

–       1 cup or 8fl oz of water

–       a little of formula milk or breastmilk

Instructions:

–       boil the water in a small pan

–       add rice powder and stir constantly with a whisk or a spoon

–       simmer for about 10 minutes while continue to stir (otherwise the rice will stick on the pan)

–       add enough formula milk or breastmilk to a consistency that works best for your baby

Optional: You can add some fruit puree if they have been introduced to fruits.

 

Making your own rice powder:

Use a blender or food processor, best is to use the coffee been or spice grinder to get a finer powder in smaller quantities.

 

Adding breastmilk to the rice cereal is to make your baby more familiar with the taste of the cereal. Some babies may refuse cereal feeding due to unfamiliar taste. You can use breastmilk exclusively, or for bridging to formula milk.

 

Always consult your pediatrician or family physician if you have any health-related questions!
