Best Cereal For Nigerian Babies To Eat From 6 Months On

Hello Nigerian wives connection, please my baby is six months and refusing all the cereals I introduced to him. I have tried cerelac, nutrend, golden morn blended indomie and even blended quaker
oats. What's the best cereal for babies this age ? Aunty Eya please help me post this.

REPLY: At six months, babies should start getting introduced to solid foods. At this age, any food the family is eating, the baby should be able to taste especially if that food is not spicy (Peppery). Some babies outrightly reject cereals no matter how sweet but jump on cooked foods. At this age, when the family or mum is eating, if you observe that the baby is interested and probably wants what you are eating, please do not relent to share. If it needs mashing, mash or pound with a mortar and pestle and serve the baby. If your child accepts the food without problems, why not continue and give what they are ready to eat and not the cereals you want them to eat. Try them with adult food that's not too hard to digest and see if they'll accept or not before you continue to spend more money shopping different baby cereals in the market.

  4. Poster bu friso gold rice, if the baby refuse go to the market and buy dawa, millet and yellow corn, mix together and leave for three days. Make sure you wash with clean water every day, on the third day go to the mill and grind it, come back home and extract the shaft . Put in a bag and allow to dry. Put in a tight container and put in your fridge.

  6. Try Gerber cereal. It has all sort of flavours. If your baby is a supported sitter buy that of supported sitter and if your baby isn't a supported sitter anymore but sitter. Also u can try Heinz jar food(rice pudding, creamed porridge,egg custard with rice etc).

    Rice purée (basmati or ofada rice)with sma gold 2.
    Carrot,apple or banana purée as juice every afternoon
    Ogi baba with soyabeans,crayfish and little groundnut,.
    Beans purée (peeled beans and prepared like gbegiri but no ingredients.)sometimes mixed with d rice purée but I don't add sma gold coz it can upset d baby stomach.
    Amala or eko with beans purée or ewedu cooked with iru.
    I feed with spoon,hand or bottle.all d food gets hard when cold but light to be in bottle when hot and water can be added if wanna put in bottle.
    All d food can be in freezer for at least 3 weeks I.e frozen but in fridge not more Dan 48 hrs I.e cold.

    Pls ma,hope I'm not doing much for him.kindly advise ma

    1. You are doing great! If you can add a little salt to the beans prepared like gbegiri so it's not bland, the baby might eat even more. Excellent Job! Keep it up.

  13. Aunty eya. Please update your post. Children under 1 do not need salt. It is quite harmful as their kidneys cannot process it

    1. Thanks Oma, but from six months old, they are introduced to solids like swallow and soups, porridges etc which are served to the whole family. These solids contain salt na.

    2. Yea, some people feed their babies family meals from 6months but it's not right. Babies less than 1 year should not take salt.
