A Neocate weaning recipe, enough for 1-2 servings.

PLAIN baby rice cereal is usually permitted in low allergy diets. Only use commercial rice cereal if the doctor and/or dietitian have permitted this.
Alternatives include home-made rice porridge that is made from ground rice or rice cereal, polenta/fina corn meal or fine oat meal/oat porridge. Check with your dietitan before using oats however – many sources may contain small amounts of other non-permitted grains.

If your child is able to tolerate commercial baby rice cereal, follow the manufacturers preparation instructions. Substitute the amount of water recommended with Neocate formula. Make the Neocate formula up according to the instructions on the back of the can (1 scoop to 30 ml water) or to the strength prescribed by the doctor and/or dietitian.

Handy hints:
Rice cereal can be served with fruit puree (see recipe above) if desired.
Do not use baby rice cereals that contain milk, milk products, soy, nuts, fruit and flavours added to them. Make sure the PLAIN version is used.
