good cereal or bad cereal

she currently eats porridge with milk, ready brek with milk, weetabix (2) with milk

but she's started pouncing on DS's shreddies afterwards (will the child ever stop eating )

are they ok for 9 month olds

I thinks so and they mush up rather well aswell!! As far as i know theres no added sugars

You get interesting poos after dry shreddies - sort of pebble dashed. Also if you let any dry on after a spill it's at least as bad as weetabix.

I'd say that they're fine. AFAIK they're wholegrainwith no added sugar, so just leave 'em to soak a bit so they're soft and let her loose !

I'm sure ds was having Shreddies at that age.

She really has got hollow legs, hasn't she? Bless.

Sorry, completely repeated everyone

Twiglett Tue 22-Feb-05 11:43:45

nope .. she munches them dry .. this is a baby who has actually managed to eat lettuce

Xena Tue 22-Feb-05 11:44:34

My baby likes them too 93% whole grain wheat

Marina Tue 22-Feb-05 11:45:42

Can't remember if they have added salt? Not that this would stop me. I'd be delighted if dd showed an interest in breakfast, although she makes up for it at lunch and dinner, luckily.

shreddies do have added sugar, probably not a lot though and a bit of sugar wont do much harm. I think weetabix have added sugar too, could be wrong there though

Prufrock Tue 22-Feb-05 12:22:59

Yeah. Sainsburys own brand raisin wheats are even better- lowest salt and sugar content and additive free.

Beansmum Tue 22-Feb-05 12:27:49

Shreddies have 12.8g of sugar per serving! that's loads isn't it?

pupuce Tue 22-Feb-05 12:51:36

Beansmum per 100g or per serving ? if per 100g it's not too bad if it is per serving it's a lot!

louloubelle Tue 22-Feb-05 12:51:42

I'm another one for the Sainsbury's version..although they do contain a bit of glycerine, they have nothing else except wholewheat and raisins. Leave to soak for 5 mins, then finger food at breakfast!

Xena Tue 22-Feb-05 12:53:13

weetabix also has added sugar but I can't find out how much for a comparison

Another 9 month old shreddie shredder in this house

knot Tue 22-Feb-05 16:46:46

do you htinkit'd be okay for a 7month old?
with semi skimmed milk
as this is what we have it'd make my morning easier

HunkerMunker Tue 22-Feb-05 16:54:03

Wouldn't give a child under two semi-skimmed milk - they need the fat I think.

HandbagAddiction Tue 22-Feb-05 17:07:40

Didn't think you were supposed to do cows milk until they were 12 months plus??

Our dd had shreddies early but in dry form as a 'snack'. Took us ages to get her eating them with milk on...

knot Tue 22-Feb-05 17:09:52

i thought you could for eating and cooking with but not as main drink, will have to buy full fat for him

OldieMum Tue 22-Feb-05 17:14:11

We give dd shredded wheat bitesize, mixed up with sliced banana. They are the same size as shreddies, but have no added sugar or salt (it was the sugar which put me off giving her shreddies). I can't remember how long she has been eating them, but it must be about a year. She is now 25 months old.

HandbagAddiction Tue 22-Feb-05 17:53:10

Knot - sorry you're right. Having a particularly 'thick' day today!!

Xena Tue 22-Feb-05 17:57:36

My DD is 7mths and I give shreddies to her. Although I have just realised that I am giving her Semi skimmed which is what the other 2 drink. does this really matter she is still having the recommend amt of baby milk aday and she only has cows milk on her breakfast so it would only be about a pint a week.
