My major concern is infant rice cereal, a common first food for infants recommended by most pediatricians. When you do prepare rice, soak rice for 2 hours in warm water, rinse multiple times and drain before initial cooking to reduce arsenic levels up to 30%.
Boil rice in 6X more water, drain water and return to pot to reduce up to 60% of arsenic levels.
Choose aromatic rices such as Indian basmati or Thai jasmine rices which has the lowest levels of arsenic. Add a couple drops of unsulphured organic blackstrap molasses {click on it to get my recommendation} to homemade oatmeal and pureed baby food for an additional boost of iron. Combine iron rice foods (meat, egg yolk, peas) with high vitamin C foods (citrus fruits, strawberries, applesauce, mango, sweet peppers, berries) to increase the absorption of the iron.
Add cooked egg yolk to any puree but make sure you are using eggs from chickens who graze in the pasture.

A recent statement by American Academy of Pediatrics suggests the use of finely chopped meat, vegetables, fruits, and non-rice grains as first foods.


Let’s face it- arsenic is naturally found in our soil and water which means arsenic is also in most produce but in smaller amounts. My life became a huge panic attack when Consumer Reports reported large amounts of arsenic in rice (2012).
My new book, The Feeding Baby, is full of iron rich recipes for infant development avoiding the commonly recommended infant rice cereal.
Eating a variety of grains and fresh produce will minimize the overall exposure in general.
