The babe turned 6 months last week and we officially started solid foods. Started with a homemade rice cereal. I used the recipe from www.wholesomebabyfood.com.
1/4 c. rice powder (brown rice ground in blender or food processor)
1 cup water
1. Bring liquid to boil in saucepan. Add the rice powder while stirring constantly.
3. Simmer for 10 minutes, whisking constantly.
3. Serve warm.
It is good in the fridge for 3 days or in the freezer up to 3 months. I froze some in ice cube trays and then popped the cubes into a freezer bag for future single servings. I wonder how the consistency will be after freezing. If it's gross it won't be a huge investment lost.
I thinned it out with filtered water so it was a good consistency for him. You could thin it with expressed breast milk or formula. When he gets a little older and more used to the textures I wont thin it as much.
