Re: Which cereal?

One reason peds recommend cereal first is that infant's iron stores start to deplete around 6 months, and cereal is iron fortified- where fruits and veggies aren't a great iron source.
That said, there are good alternatives nutrition wise, such as Earth's Best whole grain rice cereal- which gives the benefits of whole grain brown rice.
