Gluten Free Rice Cereals For Babies

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

can anyone recommend a gluten free rice cereal? Many people like nestle rice cereal but the box does not claim gluten free like Milupa does. And since these companies also make barley and oat cereal im not sure if i can be assured there is no cross contamination. Does anyone have any experiences they'd like to share???

It's not a baby product, the only ingredient is oven-roasted organic whole grain brown rice.

I am the infant specialist in my program, and so- in addition to feeding my little one have heard lots of comments about this... Earth's best was the only gluten free rice cereal anyone could find until recently when Happy Bellies just started production... my son (although 21 months) loves this mixed in his foods, it is a brown rice cereal with probiotics, and does say right on the label that it is gluten free... I've only seen it at health food stores, and it is pretty new I understand.

The Lundberg Farms Hot Rice Cereal is a bit textury for babies. I tried it on my LO. He never has gotten used to the texture, maybe now that he is 1, I'll try again.

Dr. Fasano's Pediatric Fellow (can't remember her name) told me Beech Nut was safe. I used Beech Nut. I called Gerber and the woman I was tranfered to on allergens told me it was manufactured in a completely different facility and not open to Cross Contamination issues -- good b/c preflavored apple or banana rice cereal was "easy" and I need all the ease I can get.

The more people who call and ask the better the future will be. They can note that many want to know and might start labeling the boxes. Who knows...

Always call for yourself, especially when it comes to babies and their foods. My older kids I'll take the risk and trust another mom. But I say call b/c some areas of the US might have different manufacturing processes.

I actually prefer those plain ones, like puffed rice, and puffed corn - which are usually in health stores. Not much texture to them, so I'd think babies wouldn't have difficulty digesting them. One thing I tried with the corn was to put a couple teaspoons of water in a bowl, add some pure Stevia powder, and toss the cereal around in the bowl so it would pick up some moisture. Then I spread the cereal out on a cookie sheet and popped it in the oven for a few minutes. This makes the cereal have a pleasant crispiness, and the sweetness typically associated with cold cereals.

But again, that was the corn one, so just how the rice would turn out I can only speculate. Seems like it should work though. The corn might be a bit large for babies too, not to mention more allergy concerns.

Now that I think of it, a bit of cinnamon might be a nice touch. Just be sure to feed the baby first!

<EDIT>

I just occurred to me that you might be talking about infants, as in no teeth?

I enjoy listening to Ted Talks.  I found this one on dementia.  The take?  No success in developing drugs to stop dementia, so they are looking for ways to prevent it through diet!  Food can heal!   https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=f0WCb23KPEw Interesting!
