Depending on the age of the baby, I would not recommend cereals. Young tummies can't digest the grains very well, so it would be giving your child all the nutritional value of cardboard. It may make them feel full, but it's not healthy. And the FDA has found arsenic in many varieties of rice products, including rice milk and rice cereals made for babies. Unless the baby has an iron deficiency and is not getting enough iron from it's regular diet, then an iron fortified cereal may help. In that case, look for one that is whole-grain, and not rice. Otherwise, stick to fruits, vegies, and meats for food intake, and breastmilk, formula, or whole milk (after 1 year) for hydration and additional nourishment.

you are going to want to stick with sweet potatoes or carrots for one week so you can tell if they have allergies to it. what I did I would put it in baby cereal too. how often do you give your baby solid foods a day?

When you first start feeding solids, it should be to get the child used to and interested in different flavors and textures. Most of the nutrition should come from breastmilk or formula until 1 year old.
