We waited until my son was 5 months old to start solids. His first food was Earth's Best Rice Cereal, and then we added the oatmeal a few weeks later, and finally this multi-grain cereal. I feel good about feeding him these cereals because they are whole grain and organic. I think he likes the multi-grain the best! I mix mine with breastmilk, and sometimes I'll add some applesauce, pearsauce, or mashed banana to it. He likes it plain as well, though. Another reviewer commented that the spout on the box is diffiult to use. I agree! It makes a mess to ues it, so when I open a new box of any of Earth's Best cereals, I pour all of it into a quart sized zip lock bag and write what it is on the bag. That way the cereal stays fresh and there is no mess! Something I've found a little odd with all their cereals is that when you first add the liquid, it gets thicker as it sits for about 30 seconds. But after a couple of minutes it thins back out again. I find myself always adding more milk or cereal throughout the meal to keep it at the consistency that my son likes it. He likes it not too thick, and I don't like it too runny because then it is a mess!
