Obesity has become a huge problem in America. It is not only a problem because of how unhealthy it makes our society look, but also because of how fast it is increasing.

Many health nutritionists suggest that infant rice cereal filled with iron, mixed with a baby formula or breast milk should be the baby's first food solid food. This is because rice has a much lower chance than the other grain products to cause any allergic reactions. You can use a food processor, grinder, food mill or a basic blender to make the food softer so it'll be easier for the baby to consume. If all of this sounds too time consuming to you, you can always use a fork. If you are having a family meal and want to feed your baby, take out a portion of the food for the baby before you add any taste to it (spice, seasoning, salt, and so forth) in case allergies are present.
