In infants, we recommend only breastfeeding for the first 6 months, but formula (formula) supplementation is initiated due to medical necessity, or infants who are very appetite can be switched to supplementary foods after 6 months. The swallowing function is not sufficient for the baby to receive solid foods before 4 months. In this transition period, while the mother's milk is still going on, the first ones suggested to start are vegetable puree, fruit puree and cereal mixture foods. Iron and fibers in cereal foods facilitate baby's transition from breast milk to solid foods.

Breast milk is very easy to digest. Therefore, babies make plenty of liquid poop after sucking. However, infants other than breast milk in the intestinal system when adding additional food to the poo will solidify straining and strain may occur and may be uncomfortable.

Since cereal foods regulate bowel movements, unwanted effects such as constipation and diarrhea are also less.

The fiber content in the grain is quite high. The high fiber content increases the amount of the baby's poo, makes it softer and more frequent, and accelerates the poo's passage time. This is closer to breast milk.

It has been shown that feeding from grain-based fiber-containing foods from early infancy reduces the risk of obesity in the later childhood.

In some countries (eg USA) abroad, special iron-enriched cereal blends are available for infants. These can be given to the baby by putting them in breast milk or continuation formula. In our country, there are cereal-based ready-made spoon foods.

    It seems to me that this is not entirely accurate. There are several opinions on this topic. And each person with their own worldview has their own opinion.
