Baby love it!


I began using this rice porridge since my son was 4 months old.I switch to rafferty's later and my baby had rash red face then i changed back to Nestle. My son does enjoy it. it is creamy and smooth, easy to mix with veg and meet. Now my son is 6 months old, i feed him this rice porridge twice a day with veg and chicken, he loves it and eats 100 ml porridge each time. very happy with Nestle.
Creamy, easy to mix

Bub liked it but had to discontinue use due to allergic reaction


I tried this instead of the usual brand that i buy. I was abe to follow recommended amount of cereal and water and found that the amount suggested for bub starting solids was way too much and i ended up throwing most of it out. After bub tasting it 10 minutes later bub had a rash on face around mouth and was coughing. I was concerned that it may be the cereal as bub did not show any symptoms of reaction with other cereal brands. I tried the following day to give the Nestle Cerelac rice but bub showed the same symptoms so i have discontinued use just in case of allergic reaction. Otherwise i was happy with this product.
Easy to mix
Suggested serving size was too much in one sitting for bub and possible allergic reaction to this cereal

Maybe you should check this out http://www.tesco.com/groceries/Product/Details/?id=258510053 if you really think there isn't sugar in this stuff. And go google "maize maltodextrin"....

Assisted in transitioning baby to solids


I began using my son on the Nestle Cerelac Rice flavour when he was 4 months as suggested on the box. My son struggled at first with the concept of being spoon fed so i perservered and he eventually got the hang of it. When making up the cereal its 90mls milk or water and 2.5 tablespoons of cerelac. At first it was a real waste as my son couldnt finish 2.5tablespoons of cereal so i found i was either finishing it for him or throwing the remainder out.
mixes in easily with Nan baby formula, baby liked the taste
90ml liquid & 2.5 tablespoons of cerelac leaves you with throwing too much out for a 4 month old

Great breakfast for baby's


I've been using cerelac for a while now , all three of my children have been fed cerelac when they were baby's . i startered buying it originally at a middle eastern shop where they import it , it's very popular over seas . My children loved it , it's not as bland as some other brands of cereals . They have only recently been selling cerelac at Safeway . Unfortunately they only sell rice and wheat where the imported ones have more flavour opinions . More flavours are better when the bub is fussy when teething . Overall I've been happy with cerelac cereals . It thickens quickly and you only need a bit . Cost are about $4.50 per box .
Baby liked it better then other cereals
More flavours needed

Something to start of

Baby loves it


I bought this baby cereal as an alternative to baby rice which my baby had grown out of, and this is a great choice for the older baby starting solids (6months plus). Mixes well with water and i add a little breast milk or formula (which ever i have on hand at the time) for that extra nutrient boost. Baby thinks it's fantastic, very palatable for him.
Value for money, quality ingredients , available in 200g boxes
Has sugar in it, but i suppose it would be bland if it didn't have a bit flavour, nearly all baby foods have some form of added sugar

I prefer this over other brand cereals its tastier,mixes and tastes better.My baby is thriving on this and gulps it down. A well known and trusted brand so I feel comfortable feeding this to my son
My baby has moved onto the Nestle wheat Cerelac.He likes this and we have had no problems changing from the rice based one.It is pleasant tasting and my baby loves it mashed with banana or other baby fruits(apples,pears).

My baby loved it, no problem with digestion or allergy. He actually did not like the rice cereal much from a different brand but with this one he really loves to have it every morning.
Mixes well, tasty, added bifidus for easy digestion
Contains sugar, not organic

I tried this one after my baby rejected the rice cereal, he rejected this one too. It's very graining and did not mix well at all. He also came out in a slight rash but hasn't with other wheat products - so he does not have an allergy.
Not many at all.
Wheat is too harsh on baby's tummy.

Have introduced my grandson to cerelac rice. Should the same be given with exact measurement of 75ml water for 3 scoops or can the water measurement be less? As the baby drools a lot finding it difficult if the feed is watery.
