Baby Recipe: Wholesome Rice Cereal

There is nothing ‘magical’ about the nutrition components of commercially made infant rice cereal. Making your own is as easy as grinding rice into a powder, then cooking it for 10 minutes. In a previous post, we have already highlighted the many benefits of making your own baby food, read here.

The result is a smooth baby rice that’s not only simple to prepare, but is cheaper than commercial brands too!

This recipe is intended for babies 9 months up.

Ingredients

1/4 cup brown rice powder
1 cup of water
A little formula/breast milk

To make the rice powder, grind brown rice in a blender or food processor. This is best achieved by grinding in small quantities – but to make the powder really fine,  you should try an electric coffee grinder.

You can use white rice if you prefer, but brown rice is more nutritious.

Preparation

Step 1

Bring the water to a boil. Add the rice powder, stirring constantly with a wire whisk.

Reduce the heat to very low and simmer gently for about 10 minutes (don’t forget to keep stirring, or the rice will stick).

Step 2

Stir in enough formula or breast milk to give the consistency that is best for your baby.
