Barley cereal

My dad's coworker gave us some cereals that they didn't use. One of them is barley which the boy have never eaten. They currently get oatmeal mixed in their fruit in the morning and veggies and rice cereal at night. Is barley more of a 'dinner' grain as well? Where does it rate in relation to other grains health wise? Is it better or worse than rice, oatmeal, wheat, etc? Thanks!

Re: Barley cereal

Don't know how it ranks health-wise, but Ava loves her barley! She never liked rice cereal, but loves both oatmeal and barley.

Re: Barley cereal

I actually think they recommend to give barley before oatmeal, but I don't think it really matters that much. I never gave one cereal at specific meals, I just rotated them around for variety. I hope they like it. My DD always like barley better than the baby oatmeal.

Health-wise I don't know how any of the cereals rank, I know they have you start w/ rice because it is the least likely to cause allergic reaction. HTH
