    Default Thermomix baby rice cereal

    Hi ladies,

    Has anyone made it and introduced it as their babys first food? Or have you bought farex first? The ingredients on the farex have a few other things added but I think its something 96% rice flour.

    Farex is horrible. With a thermomix you have so many more options. I suggest the Louise Fulton keates book baby and toddler .

    You don't need a thermomix to make a healthy baby cereal , I just mixed puffed quinoa ( from health food shop) with formula and mashed pear - takes 60 seconds! I wouldn't give cereal as a first food though - fresh fruit and veggies are better options, I gave the quinoa cereal as his brekky

    I never gave farex or homemade rice cereal. So bland and yucky.
    We went straight on to veges and fruits and then quickly on to meats so ds got his iron from meat and leafy greens.

    I second the baby and toddler thermie cookbook, it's bloody amazing. I use to eat bubs food to because it was so yummy.

    I started when DD was showing signs- sitting upright, lost tongue thrust reflex confirmed by ECHN. She was about 5 months and her first food was steamed mashed pumpkin.

    I started DD at 5.5 months and DS just after 4 months. Both had steamed and pureed veg first (sweet potato, carrot, broccoli etc) then pureed pear/apple after a couple of weeks. We have food allergies in the family so I introduced a new food every 3 days to check for reactions.

    We recently started fruit and veg with DS at 6 months. He's never had rice cereal, though recently started having Bellamy's baby porridge with purée fruit for breakfast (now 7.5 months).
    I tried doing cereal in my TM but couldn't get the consistency right (the difference between mega-lumpy and nano particles was about 0.00001 seconds!)
