View Full Version : Rice??
Just wanting to read others opinions.... on Basmati Rice.
I am looking for options to mix in with Ryan's veggies and i thought of rice but does it matter on what kind of rice?? While at the shops I have read the backs of the jar stuff and they all have brown rice...
So would Basmati be ok for a 10mth old?
I think the reason for brown rice is it's the only one that really has any fibre worth writing home about.
I think Basmati would be better than any of the other white rices as it has a lower GI (and therefore takes longer to digest).
So my answer is (and I'm not a nutritionist) that any rice is okay (after all, most rice cereals are made from white rice), but brown rice is healthier for everyone.
I love Basmati... not sure if its any good for a 10 month old, but if they can eat any other type of rice then basmati should be ok
I give Max Brown Rice once a week with chicken or vegies...
But man his nappies smell even worse..so be pre-pared to hold that nose..LOL:eek:
Thanks for the warning!!! :eek: (mind you he already knows how to clear a room - even without filling his nappy!!! Must get that from Daddy I reckon lol ;) )
I couldn't see why he couldn't have it but just wasn't sure.... I know brown rice is healthier - and that is what we normally have but for some reason we picked up the basmati when we went shopping :confused:
Don't worry bout the error in the rice Leisha...I'd put it down to pregnancy brain:p
I did try to convert my DH to brown rice, but no go, so if I'm just cooking for DS and me it's brown, but otherwise it's jasmine or arborio. I tried to go over to Basmati (as I heard about the GI factor), but while DH preferred it to brown, he still wasn't a big fan. So mostly DS has white jasmine (I figure we eat pretty healthily mostly and I'm not going to cook different rice for everyone).:rolleyes:
Basmati is a very hard rice so needs to be slow boiled for a heck of a long time - just keep an eye on it and make sure it is cooked through and nice and tender for him to digest properly.
