Can A 1 Year Old Child Eat Instant Cereal?
Can a 1 and a half year old child consume energy?
energen is one of the trademarks of instant food products in the form of cereals derived from wheat which is also accompanied by milk and sweeteners such as sugar. The practical way of serving cereal makes food like this much loved by many people. This does not mean that this food can be an option for every age group, including in this case your child. On the product it may not be clearly stated that this food is prohibited to be given to children aged 1.5 years. However, it is clear that children at this stage need nutritional intake which of course cannot be obtained only from instant cereal. In addition, the milk and sweeteners used in this cereal may not be suitable for children and can cause a series of problems such as digestive problems. Not to mention the chemicals used in production, which of course can harm your child if consumed at such an early age and for a long time.
We advise you to give your child the best intake, namely breast milk for up to 2 years, which is also accompanied by complementary foods such as vegetables and mashed meat as well as side dishes according to the child's age. More details about food choices you can consult further with your pediatrician, or nutritionist. Continue to monitor the development and growth of children on a regular basis. Here we attach an article about complementary feeding. Hope it is useful.
