Wheat cereal: At this age he may eat wheat cereal once a day.It is not advised for younger children because it can cause allergic reactions such as vomiting, diarrhea, colicky pain or skin rashes. If any of these symptoms affect your child, i would stop and try feeding cereal one or two months later.
