Can I add Rice Cereal to Baby Food?

When I first started baby food with my son I had to mix some in with his cereals. The taste was too strong and the cereal helped dull the taste. I would make the cereal as recommended on the package then mix it in with baby food. This will dissolve the powder so you dont get chunks of cereal in the purreed food

Yes! You still mix it with formula or milk... and once you have that set, you then add that to the food. Adding just the powder to the food may not mix well depending on the texture of the food you are adding it too. And from experience, most things are not good to mix with the dry powdery rice without already being mixed with milk or formula first!!

yeah if they are old enough the oatmeal is much more nutritional. I actually found a few articles online talking about how we should forego rice cereal altogether because it serves no great nutritional purpose. Interesting, as generations have been eating it lol but you cannot feed your babies the other stuff until later so what do ya do? :)
