    Sugar and salt can not kids up to a year !!!

  2. Maria

    Stunned. Whole 2 teaspoons of sugar in the porridge for a child up to a year. Children generally can not give sugar. All the more so small. Sugar is a poison for the body, causing a change of mood, hyperactive (then fatigue), obesity, later diabetes and high blood pressure.
    When you can multi-component dishes, you can add a banana for sweets, or a little honey (also not to overdo it). But not industrial sugar in any case.

  3. Sveshechka

    Thanks for the informative article. I cooked porridge for the first couple of days, but the child was sprinkled, and then only on Materna's cereals and grew. Mixes also eat this brand, because everything is low-allergenic and the child likes it. I think that children's cereals are not in order to save time, but still for the sake of the health of babies.
