What have mom’s mixed in cereal to spice up? I haven’t given LO plain food before and he doesn’t seem to like the rice by its self.

Mix it with apple sauce for breakfast and for Lunch a vegtable with a little fruit so he will eat it. Worked for me everytime.

Our kids didn't care for the rice cereals but when we gave them oatmeal I'd add yogurt or a mashed up banana or strawberry. And once they were close to a year old I'd use a little chocolate milk when I mixed the cereal for a special treat.  There are lots of fun flavor varieties in apple sauces and baby foods. Just go slow when introducing the different flavors, textures and fruits/veggies. Introduce one at a time and a little a time in case they don't like it or react to it somehow.

We didn't use rice cereal. I made oatmeal and put in fresh fruits like bananas, strawberries, blueberries, etc. My daughter pretty much ate whatever we ate.

I use oatmeal.  My baby likes it plain but I'm going to start mixing some fruit up with it.

I didn't do the rice cereal. Just gave some purees till they had their pincher grasp down and could feed themselves and we switched to regular food just cut up really small. Anything I ate, the kid ate. My kids didn't start food till closer to 8mos too.

FYI, rice cereal is starch which is pretty  much sugar. Not needed.
