Babies have only "needed" cereal to wean them onto real food since companies started producing it and selling that idea.
In actual fact - baby cereals offer them nothing nutritionally except ridiculous amounts of iron - which because of the mass - is poorly absorbed. Babies of 6 months or more can eat real food, freshly prepared at home.
"Baby" foods lack in the nutrients you find in freshly prepared meals, and are expensive - and honestly - those things taste disgusting, have you ever tried some? Yuck.
My motto is - if you wouldn't eat it yourself, don't give it to your baby.
