Once a day is enough cereal for a 1 year old.
The cereal provides iron for the baby. Cereal can be prepared with water or formula. A baby drinking formula gets iron from the formula. If the baby changes to cow milk, then he can eat more cereal to get his iron, because cow milk does not have adequate iron.

What dangers are there with adding cereal to a babies bottle? For one thing, your child could very well be on the road to obesity.
The extra calories in the cereal itself is enough to teach your child to overeat. The american academy of pediatrics also advises against feeding a baby cereal from a bottle. The only time feeding a baby cereal in a bottle is when your pediatrician recommends it.
