I hardly ever use the dry mix cereals. Only when we go somewhere where I can't cook.
I buy an organic brand of rice flour, cook it with a little water. After it thickens up, I add a little bit of unsalted butter and either formula or breastmilk to get the right consistency. Sometimes I mix it with steamed, pureed fruits or veggies, that I also buy organic.
It is easy, and doesn't take long. The rice flour really only cooks for about 2 min. and then it's done. It requires a little more cleanup than just mixing straight in the bowl, but this way you know exactly what your baby is eating. I also do the same with fine corn flour.
