Please can you advise whether its ok to give my DD whetabix for breakfast. I have been feeding her this (as Annable Karmel and Gina Ford suggests) but then I was told that their books are out of date and that Whetabix has a lot of added sugar and salt and shouldn't be given until 1 years old. Is this true? Many thanks.
Think they do have sugar and salt: isn't shredded wheat supposed to be the goody now coz there's nothing else init (that's why it tastes like poop!). I give dd ready-brek (can just make it up with formula milk that you've warmed rather than boiling water or milk or microwaving it like it says on the packet) as it's not too 'chunky' as far as a chunky porridge goes, but y9ou can obviously make it to whatever consisteny you want. And raisins in it go down a treat, or banana. (dd has had it since she was about 6m if that's any help) Hope that helps
Compares all cereals WRT salt and sugar (amongst other things. It is very busy but just text search for weetabix etc. I don't think Oatibix are on there are they weren't around then, but you can get the figures off the weetabix website and I am sure they are lower than Weetabix (or they were 12m ago when I was weaning DD3)
