Generally, familiarity with cereals occur after administration in the diet of fruit and vegetable purees, but possible options.For example, some kids that are poorly gaining weight, pediatricians recommend first offer is porridge, and only then - mashed vegetables.

For the youngest

Children If you try to feed the baby "adult" porridge, nothing good will come of it: like the food is too rough for the crumbs.At all times the porridge for kids were prepared from crushed, crushed cereal, or rub through a sieve after cooking, turning into a liquid puree.And the most popular in those days was semolina, which is quite gentle and without additional processing.

all changed when the production of ready-soluble cereals for kids.Worries young mothers immediately became smaller: the need to sort out the rump, wash it, grind in a coffee grinder and cook disappeared.Enough was only ready to dissolve the powder with water or milk.

popular once semolina is today considered one of the least valuable for children.First thing in the diet crumbs introduced dairy and gluten-free cereals, which are easily digested.This rice, buckwheat and corn.Most of these nutritious cereals - buckwheat, corn has the lowest value, but it can be used to make the diet more varied crumbs.

first porridge should not contain any additives - fruit, vegetables, salt and sugar.Later, when the baby gets used to the conventional monocomponent porridge, it can be giving and more complex dishes, such as buckwheat or rice with an apple with apricot.But cereal with potential allergens such as honey The benefits of honey: tasty rehabilitation The benefits of honey: tasty recovery and chocolate, it is better to postpone to a later age.

Children introduce solid foods Complementary feeding: the first adult spoon food The lure: a spoon first adult food slowly: must start with a spoon gruel for breakfast.Subsequently portion increases, and the porridge becomes thicker.After eight months of the baby can begin to give porridge, barley, rye, millet porridge and multizlakovuyu.After a year comes the turn of semolina, which up to this time to give is not recommended because it is believed that decoy interferes with calcium absorption.

After one and a half or two years, you can gradually accustom the child to present "adult" porridges.At this age, the baby is already quite cope with their chewing, so ready to grind cereals and cereal no longer needed.But cereals should be washed thoroughly, as often they are not sufficiently clear, and to touch, to free from debris.From instant cereals gradually be abandoned, although sometimes (for example, after an illness) they can give and preschool children - harm will not do, if instantons cereal in the diet did not prevail.

first kids in the diet include dairy semi porridge, then comes the turn crumbly.Best of all from an early age to teach kids to porridge with vegetables or fruit, but the sugar abuse is not recommended.
