Many new parents worry about making sure their baby is getting the proper nutrients for their developmental stage. We worry about which fruits and veggies have the right combination of vitamins needed for healthy growth. Another thing we worry about is iron. A baby less than one year needs 11 milligrams of iron every day to prevent deficiencies and to stay healthy. Making sure baby is getting enough iron isn't as hard as it sounds. The best way to get this iron is through a combination of breast milk or formula supplemented with an iron-fortified cereal.
This is actually a great first food, since you can mix a small amount of cereal in with breast milk or formula. This was all 3 of my babies' first experience with solids, and it went very well for us. My babies developed a taste for whole grains, which has made introducing nutritious foods and breads a lot easier as they grow.
Earth's Best infant cereals provide an excellent source of iron (45%), an essential mineral for proper infant growth and development. Earth's Best cereals are available in a variety of varieties. Are you a parent on-the-go? Try the multi-packs, individual pouches that can easily be tossed into the diaper bag. That's right, there's no need to carry around a whole box of infant cereal. We love these multi-packs, and have kept them in the diaper bags at all times when Xander and Sophie were a little smaller.
Earth's Best's infant cereals are made with 100% organic whole grains. Whole grains possess more of their natural nutrition than grains that have been stripped and processed. Plus, whole grains have a fuller, richer, flavor, helping baby to develop a preference for whole grains ... a preference which will serve him well now and throughout life. These early years are instrumental in developing food preferences and tastes. What better way to start a baby on the road to lifelong good health, and a lifelong preference for those foods that are naturally good for him!
