    Default pasta and rice?

    Hi,

    I've been giving DS normal white pasta and basmati rice mixed with his veggies, but I was wondering if he should have wholemeal or a special baby one instead. What do you use?

    I use a variety at home, wholemeal pasta, spelt pasta, quinoa pasta I think it's good to give them a healthy variety while they are young plus when we go out at restaurants it's usually always white pasta
    Also try quinoa instead of rice sometimes , loaded with protein and iron

    How old is she? It's actually a good food for her to try learn on, plus I bet she just grabs fistfuls and shovels it in!
    I always gave DS quinoa from
    6 months, it is a lot more nutritious than plain rice, variety is the key!

    Try the health food section in any supermarket , use it as you would rice, it's full of protein and iron and great for growing bubbas!

    Also add some fresh herbs to her rice tonight, coriander, parsley anything really! I used to put herbs in anything DS ate , eggs, rice, pasta etc to get him not only used to the flavours but also so he thinks it's normal to eat "green" food which I have found a lot of kids have trouble with! ( plus herbs are full of nutrients- even dried ones!)
