You seem to hear about baby rice only in the context of stage one weaning, but I want to give my baby my veggie chilli and rice and wonder whether to stick to baby rice or to give him adult rice instead now he is a bit older. Or is it just the same (baby rice just being more mashed up)? Thanks if you can help!
"Dont give your baby high-fibre versions of foods, especially those with added bran. It stops babies from absorbing important minerals such as calcium and iron. Its better not to give your baby brown rice, wholemeal pasta or bran-enriched breakfast cereals until they are older, although you can give some brown bread."
At 8mo, bar the obvious like honey and salt, your baby can eat whatever you eat but wholegrains/fibre rich foods not recommended. Perhaps use your leftover baby rice to hang any wallpaper you have lying about the place.
