I don't understand why people see it as something to be against. It wasn't a first food for dd, she had veg first, then fruit, then cereal and yoghurt later on, but it certainly was used. I added fruit to it, used it as a thickener for pasta sauce, put it mash if I made it too runny.
I asked a question in the other thread. Dd had rice flake porridge this morning, and I was wondering if this is really all that different to rice cereal?
