Brown Rice Cereal for Baby

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.

Rice Cereal

Ingredients:

1/4 c. rice powder (brown rice ground in blender or food processor)
1 cup water

Directions:

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.
