daycare on food program say they have to offer cereal
So my dd is 5 months today and when she is 6 months the daycare i work at and bring my dd to is on a food program and they say they have to offer cereal :( im not a fan of the program it is outdated but we are a non profit and the reimbursement helps our daycare run. So I don't want my dd to have rice cereal or at least limit the amount she receives. I have no problem with her getting baby food purees (fruits/veggies) after she is six months old and i have offered it at home first.
Maybe its a control thing but I don't like being told what I need to feed my kid. Has anyone just skipped rice cereal and offered oatmeal instead? what kind/brand of oatmeal did you use? Gerber or Quaker? I was thinking of basically skipping cereal all together until she was closer to one and just giving her pureed fruits/veggies? Anyone else have this problem at daycare? I will probably write a note, hope i don't need a drs note he favors cereal. My dd is healthy and at 4 months in the 43% for weight so no worries there. I want most of her calories to come from bm until shes closer to a year
I live in Minnesota. Yeah I hate the food program!!!! They also push peanut butter which I dislike simply because of allergies. I moved to a small town to marry my husband but when I lived in the twin cities the daycare I worked at was very nice and wasnt on the food program they also were peanut free. I miss that place.
