You can start feeding in the baby's feeding from 4-6 months, but never before the four. At the outset, gluten-free cereals (rice and corn) should be chosen to avoid sensitization and intolerance to this protein (wheat, oats, rye and barley contain gluten). From 7-8 months, following the recommendations of your pediatrician, they can be mixed. Cereals are a source of energy and provide protein, minerals, vitamins (thiamine, especially), essential fatty acids and carbohydrates of slow absorption to the baby's diet, allowing a greater distance between the intakes. To prepare the porridge, you can use the natural milk and add the necessary cereal, thus keeping the minimum contribution of 500 ccs of milk per day. Preparations containing cereals and milk are less advisable and prepared with water since it is harder to calculate the amount of milk used. Many healthy foods are good for babies, but some can be considered "superheroes" of food and stand out because they are loaded with essential nutrients, cheap and easy to prepare.
