As a one off or in general?

in general, not really sure when they can have wholemeal and am doing spag bol for tea and wanted to use the wholemeal spag

yes, its the same as wholemeal bread. As long as your lo is gluten tolerant, its fine.

None of mine have been really great with wholemeal anything til they've been older tbh.
Awful nappies,red bums rather than anything major though.
Try your little one and see.
(We've got spag bol tonight too)

I think it's a bit fibrous for them to have all the time. They need stodge and fat, babies.

Doesn't wholemeal flour prevent absorption of one of the vitamins (D?) so it isn't recommended to give it to them exclusively. Also it fills babies up with too much fibre when they need to be filled with calories. Don't think it does any harm though.

used organic spag (i'm organic mad at the moment), decided to hang back on using the wholemeal
