Note to all Mummies:
This Baby Rice is only recommended to Baby that is able to take solid food (usually 6 – 8 months old). We would recommend you to start with very small amount of rice with more portion of water (make it porridge). Or blend it for better digestion. Each baby’s digestive system is different, thus it would be best to start with smaller portion to let them try on the absorption of nutrition. As a start, we do not recommend you to add in any other vege / meat, as it will be difficult for baby to digest.
We have 2 types of Baby Rice (1st – White Rice + Quinoa + Millet / 2nd – White Rice + Buckwheat + Corn Meal). Which we recommend Mummies to give to baby alternately, as they will be able to get different nutrition 😀
