We know that when the baby starts to add supplementary food, the first choice is iron -rich foods, and the rice noodles for strengthening iron are often added as the first type of supplementary food. However, can the “iron enhancement” say on the packaging bag, will it definitely meet the needs of the baby iron? In addition, you may also find that rice noodles have a variety of flavors, vegetables, fruits, meat flavors, etc. Some of them are added with DHA and probiotics. Which one should I choose? Hurry up and see Duda’s content today.
The content of iron in rice noodles is critical!
The reason why the rice noodles are to buy “strengthen iron” are to supplement the baby to prevent iron deficiency anemia. However, according to the “National Safety Standards for Infant Food Assistant Food” (GB10769-2010), the iron content is 0.25-0.5mg/100kJ, which is equivalent to every 100g of rice noodles, which contains about 3-7mg of iron, although different brands of rice noodles The iron content will be slightly different, but basically change in this range, otherwise it will not be sold in China at all.
Look at this rice noodle:
It can be seen that only 6.25mg of iron per 100g rice noodles, but it fully meets national standards. Can such rice noodles really achieve the effect of iron supplementation?
Let’s take a look at how much iron needs every day. According to the “2013 Edition Chinese Resident Dietary Nutrition Reference Institute”,
6-12 months Baby daily iron recommendation intake is 10mg; 1-3-year-old baby’s daily iron recommendation intake is 9mg
Essence 99%of the source of infant iron comes from supplementary food. Then, if you want to meet the needs of your baby’s iron every day, you must consume 10mg of iron per day.
However, when the baby just started to add supplementary food for 4-6 months, the amount of rice noodles was 1-2 spoons each time, about 15-30g. According to the amount of 30g rice noodles per day, the intake of the iron is:
30*6.25/100 = 1.9mg
That is, choosing this “high -speed rail rice noodles”, the baby’s iron intake daily is only about 2mg. Obviously, the daily recommended intake (10mg) is much worse, and it cannot meet the baby’s growth needs.
Let’s look at a beautiful version of high -speed rail rice noodles:
The amount of iron contained in each 14g rice noodles can meet the body’s needs of 45%, about 5mg (the recommended intake of the US 0-1 year old iron is 11mg). If the baby still takes 30g of rice noodles every day, you can get 10mg iron, which is enough to meet the body’s needs.
From this point of view, you must choose a very high iron -containing rice noodles like the United States? The answer is not absolute, but also specific analysis.
First of all, for babies with pure breastfeeding, because the iron content in breast milk is very small, when the baby is 4-6 months, the reserves of iron in the body are almost exhausted. From 4 months, 1mg/kg iron is added every day (up to 15mg). But in our country, there are not many execution. Unless the baby has been detected by iron deficiency anemia, iron supplements are given.
Therefore, the breastfeeding baby that has not yet supplemented the iron, it is recommended to choose a high -iron -containing rice noodles to meet the needs of the iron. If you choose rice noodles with lower domestic iron content, the risk of iron deficiency anemia will be relatively high. For breastfeeding babies that have been supplemented on time, choosing domestic rice noodles is enough. If you choose a high -iron rice noodle with higher iron, it may cause excessive iron.
Secondly, for babies feeding by formula milk, because the formula milk is strengthened, every 600ml formula milk can intake about 6mg of iron. Using ordinary domestic rice noodles can basically meet the needs. It is necessary to choose a high -iron -containing rice noodle.
Finally, as the baby’s supplementary food is added, the amount of rice noodles gradually increases, and other iron -rich foods, such as meat puree, liver puree, etc. At this time It will also cause the iron intake to exceed the standard, which will affect the absorption of other nutrients.
To sum up, according to the iron content to choose rice noodles, you need to comprehensively consider the source of the baby iron. If rice noodles are the only sources of iron, it is recommended to choose iron -rich rice noodles. , Formula milk, meat puree, liver mud, etc., then ordinary iron -enhanced rice noodles are enough.
Single flavored rice noodles & hybrid rice noodles
The rice noodles in the supermarket are really complicated and diverse. There are rice, Xiaomi, and some of them add vegetables, fruits, and even some meat. Is there more types of types, the better?
For babies who have just begun to add supplementary food, Du Mom recommends choosing rice noodles with a single ingredient, that is, only rice or millet:
This kind of rice noodles contain only rice;
This rice noodles are made from Xiaomi.
This kind of rice noodles are added with spinach powder. It should be given to the baby if the baby has eaten spinach mud and is not allergic.
This is a rice noodle made from oatmeal rice noodles mixed. It is also necessary to determine that each one is added, and it can be consumed before it can be eaten.
This rice noodles are even more complicated. What kind of yam, corn, lily, barley, rice, lotus seeds, lotus seeds, they really have to wait. When these foods have been eaten, they can not be sensitive.
To sum up, a single -flavored rice noodles are suitable for babies who have just added supplementary food, but they do not have to choose rice noodles. Although rice is not easy to allergic and is often added as the first type of complementary food, it is also possible to choose a single -flavored rice noodle such as Xiaomi and oats, but pay attention to observe whether an allergic reaction has occurred.
Mixed -flavored rice noodles are more suitable for babies who have added various ingredients, but there is no need to pursue this so -called multiple ingredients, because the amount of addition is relatively small, and it can not play any fundamental effect. It still eats fresh ingredients. better.
Do you want the special ingredients in rice noodles?

Regarding these three ingredients, how to choose formula milk in the previous formula has mentioned that although the merchants claim that these ingredients are very beneficial to the health of the baby, they still need more experimental research to confirm their true meaning.
And with the diversification of the baby’s supplementary food, these ingredients can be obtained from it. Fish contain more DHAs; breast milk and some botanical foods (such as potatoes, beans, and onions, etc.) contain probiotics; yogurt contains a certain amount of probiotics. Instead, if you consume too much probiotic element, it may cause your baby’s abdominal bloating. Therefore, when you choose rice noodles, there is no need to pursue these excessive pursuit.

The taste is sweeter and affects the baby’s taste, just like a baby who drinks sweet water does not like to drink boiled water. Duda does not recommend choosing rice noodles containing sugar for the baby.
