Measure 2 Tablespoons of dry cereal and add to a bowl. Add liquid (like breastmilk, formula, or water) to the desired consistency. You may serve at room temperature or warm. Discard leftover cereal.
Your baby may only eat a few teaspoons of prepared cereal at one time to begin but will likely gradually eat more as they get older and transition to more solid foods. Many families prefer to start feeding the cereal with a soupy consistency and to gradually advance the texture to a thicker cereal as the baby gets older and eating skills improve. You may wish to add diced or minced foods to baby cereal as the baby gets older, like diced banana, strawberries, raspberries and vegetables like mashed cauliflower, peas, or sweet potato in order to add nutrition, provide texture variety, and support flavor variety.
