One of the most common first foods a baby eats is white rice cereal. Parents feed this to their babes thinking it is simple, gentle, pure and easily digested when in fact it is anything but. White rice cereal is broken down to very simple carbohydrates, which to a tiny baby is the equivalent of eating a bowl full of sugar! There is no nutritional content to it whatsoever, given that it is white rice that has been processed and stripped. Why do you think it has been "fortified"?
A babies first food should be REAL FOOD! WHOLE FOOD! Food that doesn't need vitamins and minerals added to it because it naturally has them. Claire's first baby food was yams, a very nutrient rich food. Followed by whole grain organic oatmeal cereal.
