What age can I give Weetabix or Ready brek to my child?26th November 2020
Weetabix, Ready brek and Oatibix are not suitable for infants under six months, and are not produced specifically for infants or young children.
The Department of Health recommends you use mashed up family foods when possible.
Cow’s milk is not suitable until 12 months and sugar and salt are not to be added. Ready brek Original contains no added sugar or salt. Weetabix and Oatibix are low in sugar and salt. Each Weetabix biscuit has less than 1g of sugar and only contains 0.05g of salt (1 Weetabix = approx. 19g). Each Oatibix biscuit has less than 1g of sugar and contains 0.07g of salt (1 Oatibix = approx. 24g). Your child will probably eat less than one full Weetabix or Oatibix to begin with. If given once weaning has been established, they should be mixed with the child’s usual milk.
If you have any questions about feeding your child, please ask your midwife, health visitor or GP.
