8 cereals? Porridge: not needed

When babies turn 6 months old is recommended to start offering foods other than breast milk (or artificial, if applicable). Not that there’;s a rush to eat everything, because the milk is still the main food , but it is interesting to start to try new foods and to begin to know them and to gradually go eating the food eat at home.

In new foods offered to children are cereals , which can be offered in both powder prepared as part of other foods. By this I mean a baby start eating rice, pasta, bread and biscuits are also eating cereal, just like taking industrial.But focusing on these, which come in powder, wanted to make a simple reflection: 8 cereals porridge?? not needed.

The gluten-free porridge

To know a little what is the most common range of cereals you can buy, I comment what you can find in the shops.The first, which are given from 6 months but which may be provided from the 4, usually if the mother begins to work and not you pump (best cereal to formula with water, because there is more risk allergy), are gluten-free grains, where there are rice and corn . The rice we all know what it is, a gluten-free cereal rich in carbon hydrates very famous for its astringent. Corn, meanwhile, is also a gluten-free cereal used to make cornmeal.

5 cereal porridges

The following are the cereal porridges of 5 , which carry gluten and are only recommended after 6 months. The ingredients are a bit variable depending on the manufacturer, but the most common is that they are both cereal porridge with 3 gluten free cereal gluten (wheat, corn, rice, barley and rye). The idea of offering these cereals is to make the baby go and trying the gluten, a little every day , for the body to go knowing and thus decrease the likelihood of suffering from celiac disease.

The wheat can be found in the pasta and bread, and cereal is better when taken whole, it contains many vitamins and minerals. The barley is a cereal that has the particularity that is digested very well. The rye flour is used to make, and with it make rye bread, which is darker than usual, which contains more fiber than wheat flour but, instead, contains less protein.

8 cereal porridges

Finally, the protagonists of this entry arrive. Many parents believe that these are the final porridge, something like the kind of cereal that every baby has to stop eating to do well.Something like a sequence: first the 2 cereals, then 5 and finally the 8 grains .

The ingredients of 8 cereal porridges are wheat, corn, rice, barley, rye, millet, sorghum and oats. The oat is a difficult to digest cereal improvement assimilated by eating flaked or, in this case, powder. It is a good source of protein (which have become famous in the world of bodybuilding and dieting) and is rich in minerals. Themillet , meanwhile, is one of the most energy provide, contains iron and magnesium can also be taken by the celiac, because not wearing Glu8. The sorghum is gluten and is not a grain in our environment is often used to feed livestock, because nutritional value is a bit lower than other cereals. In poor countries are widely consumed, because his plantation is very resistant to adverse environmental conditions.

Why is indifferent to take one or the other porridges

I may end up describing cereal whose name you did not know, and even cereal you knew that even existed. It’;s normal, because not habitually consume . So it is immaterial whether we give a baby cereal porridge or gruel of 5 8 cereal because cereal porridge containing 8 grains that a child will not consume anymore.

As the idea is that we give our meal for you learn to eat normal food, it makes little sense to give millet, sorghum, rye and barley to a child, if when you leave the porridge will not retest these cereals . Not that it’;s bad, it’;s not, it’;s just something that might be interesting for parents, especially if, when you go shopping for baby food, the 8 grains are larger than the grain price of 5.
