Review: Cerelac Infant Cereal

Hello there, parents!

It's a great pleasure to share with you my views on Nestle's Cerelac infant cereal. Cerelac is promoted for infants 6 months and older as supplement to breast milk. The soft and smooth texture also acts as introduction to semi-solid food.

Whoa...that's a lot! Thank you so much Nestle! If you want a giveaway do let me know. I was given rice and brown rice cereal.

I am married but don't have children. Why the heck would I want Cerelac?

Coz I'm a big baby. Even though I'm obviously an adult, I eat Cerelac Wheat & Honey on a weekly to daily basis. Usually I mix 3 tablespoons of Cerelac with full cream milk. I don't practice special diet coz I eat what I want. It's just so yummy!

Here are some of the facts on the booklet. When your child reaches 6 months, mother's milk or any liquid food is no longer a sole source of nutrient. Some parents will introduce this stage of solid food at 4 months.

Wow! I didn't know Cerelac has so much variety.

Cerelac also comes in yogurt form with two yummy flavours. It's a brilliant way to introduce fruity taste to your baby.

You can check out Nestlé Junior Club or their Facebook page for more info.

Interactive method to introduce this cereal to your child.

I was also given a recipe booklet containing more than 10 recipes which I will share with you below.

First recipe is carrot apple brown rice. Just use a tiny amount of steamed carrot and apple will do. After that blend the steamed carrot and peeled apple with Cerelac brown rice and warm water.

Blend all the ingredients together and you will get a fine texture. If you are not using solids like the apple and carrot, you don't have to blend. Cerelac comes in powder form and as soon as you add warm water it will dissolve immediately upon stirring. Taste wise it has a hint of sweetness. I'm sure parents will test out first before giving to their baby, no? Apple makes it even sweeter so you can either reduce the apple or just skip it.

Next is cauliflower and tuna with rice. 

I'm using broccoli as it's available in my fridge. You can use fresh tuna but I'm just using the canned one. Steam vege then blend together with tuna, Cerelac rice and a bit of warm water.

Looks good right? I did not blend my shredded tuna but you have to do so when you are feeding your baby. Cerelac rice is more bland than other flavours so the adult me thought of adding some salt but don't need to coz the tuna is already salty. When you are giving this for your infant, do reduce or avoid using canned stuff to reduce the saltiness.

This is my ultimate favourite coz I love honey. Cerelac wheat and honey can be a little sweet so I recommend to serve it with just warm water for first trial followed by milk.

I don't have dates in hand so I'm just using apple. Blend the ingredients together with warm milk.

I love to drizzle a bit of honey for extra sweetness.

Here are more recipes for you...
