Please sir, can I have some more? Once baby gets the OK to have more than breast milk or formula, one of the first transition foods is baby cereal, or as Oliver Twist called it, porridge. Recipes vary, but lots of parents initially introduce a rice-based mush to their tot, so we've run the numbers on how much it costs.
- Gerber Rice Cereal with DHA — 8 ounce canister ($3.59) = 44 cents per ounce
- Happy Baby Happy Bellies Organic Brown Rice Cereal — 7 ounce canister ($3.99) = 57 cents per ounce
- Tasty Brand Organic Brown Rice Cereal — 7 ounce pouch ($4.99) = 71 cents per ounce
- Earth's Best Rice Cereal — 8 ounce box ($2.79) = 34.8 cents per ounce
