Giving babies Weetabix from four months 'worth exploring'
Current advice is that babies should only be given solids from six months. As part of the EAT study, published in JAMA Pediatrics, scientists looked at the effects of babies consuming gluten two months earlier than normal, alongside breast milk. One group of 488 babies had two Weetabix per week, or 4g of wheat protein, from the age of four months. UK guidelines say that until babies are six months old, breast milk or first infant formula provide all the energy and nutrients they need. Breastfeeding for the first six months will also help protect babies against illness and infections.
