Why Babies Should NOT Eat Cereal

We have always believed that as soon as you start a baby on cereal they sleep better, grow better, etc. Sometimes it is important to question advice given to us by our family, well meaning friends, pediatricians, etc.

Babies have no ptyalin, the enzyme necessary to break down starches, until around the age of eighteen months. They cannot metabolize starches before this age. This also includes bread, cereal, potatoes, cookies and chips. All of these foods "clog up" our babies. These foods make excess mucous in children which is why you see so many little ones running around with runny noses!!! Babies over 6 months of age should be eating a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables and of course mother's milk.

How is a man who is already sick to be made less so by swallowing a substance that would sicken, even kill him if he were to take it in a state of health? ~Herbert M Shelton, Natural Hygiene 1968
