Does anyone feed their baby, older than 1, rice? Or rice snacks? Should I be concerned with the arsenic levels?

I don't but I remember growing up we ate a lot of rice and never had an issue. We love rice but don't eat a lot as it's a lil too filling for our liking. I would speak to your baby's doctor though just to be sure.

I have not heard that rice had a high content of arsenic-- we've all been eating rice for decades...centuries.

Yes, my baby loves rice-- rice pudding, sweet rice, and fried rice. He gobbles it down

I feed my kids rice now but I never really did rice cereal or anything like that... just didn't find it necessary! I've never heard of rice having high arsenic levels? I'd assume that a normal serving size for small children would be safe!

My son had rice snacks and was fine. I chose an organic brand over a generic brand.

Yes, but only for a couple of weeks and then switched to oatmeal cereal.

I prefer to skip rice and do other grains like quinoa and whole wheat. Noodles and pasta.

To reduce the arsenic levels, you can soak the rice overnight and the cook it with 5 or 6x the water

yes off course Rice is the seed of the grass species Oryza sativa or Oryza glaberrima. As a cereal grain, it is the most widely consumed staple food for a large part of the world's human population, especially in Asia. It is the agricultural commodity with the third-highest worldwide production, after sugarcane and maize
