Super Baby Food Brown Rice Super Porridge

Super Porridge is a mainstay of the Super Baby Food diet!  Do not let the name confuse you.  I am simply talking about baby cereal…a first solid food for your baby…the kind that is generally called “rice cereal” and comes in a box wrapped in cellophane at the grocery store.  What Super Baby Food teaches is to forgo the box at grocery store and purchase the grains from scratch (oat groats, brown rice, quinoa, millet, etc), ground the grains to a powder and place the powder in boiling water to make your very own, nutritionally superior baby cereal!

Super Porridge is easy to make, full of organic, superior nutrition AND money-saving.  What’s more, the porridge is flexible so that it can be part of a toddler diet, a young person’s diet, and even Mom and Dad’s diet.

Super Porridge is made from whole grains, shown here as brown rice super porridge.  Brown Rice Super Porridge is super easy to make.    As your baby grows,  just a few tweaks to consistency and ingredients can provide the flexibility to keep your baby satisfied and growing.

You’ve checked out all the signs for readiness and your feeding area is welcoming and safe.  It’s time for your baby’s very first “solid” food meal!  Here are some tips to make sure that your baby’s very first meal is a success.

The best time to give your baby her very first meal is in the morning or early afternoon.

  • Give the first meal when your baby is not too hungry.  A too-hungry baby urgently wanting to eat may become frustrated during this new unfamiliar eating method.
  • Feed first meal after he has had a partial breast or bottle feeding. Give him half a feeding, then introduce his first solid food, and then finish the feeding.
  • The temperature of your baby’s food should be moderately warm.
  • The first meal will be very little food, no more than a teaspoon or two.
  • The consistency of the first solid food will not be solid, it will be much more liquid than solid.
  • When ready and comfortable, place a pea-sized amount of the liquidy food on the spoon, place the spoon lightly on your baby’s lower lip and slip it gently into his mouth, so that it is on the top of his tongue.  Let him suck the food off the lower spoon.  If he doesn’t suck, then tip the spoon so that the food pours slowly into his mouth.
  • Whatever happens, smile and say, “Mmmm!!!”
  • Watch for signs that you should end the meal, when the food is gone or when she turns her head away and closes her little mouth when she sees the spoon coming.

Moms who have already started feeding their baby commercial baby cereal wonder if they can convert their baby to eat Super Baby Porridge after discovering it’s benefits in Super Baby Food.  In a word…the answer is, “yes.”

Of course, it is best to start your baby out on Super Porridge from the very beginning.  But  for those babies who have already had the commercial and prefer it over homemade Super Porridge, try this:  Mix just a bit of  Super Porridge into foods that your baby loves, such as pureed veggies/fruits or mix a small amount into the commercial baby cereal.  Gradually increase the amount of Super Porridge until most or all of the food is Super Porridge.
