A recent newsletter from EWC informed me that alot rice products have been found to contain high levels of arsenic, including baby rice. Further investigation showed me that Earth's Best baby rice cereal was one of those tested and they showed to have very high levels of arsenic (higher than the accepted level found in water) This was terrifying to me as, like many others, this was my baby's first food... and I continued to feed it to him until now. Yes, they are an organic company and they don't spray any pesticides, including arsenic on their food. However, there is arsenic in the soil that has been there for years from others using arsenic as a pesticide years ago and this gets into their products. Now the thing that disgusts me the most is that this organic company that says they care about health, has not recalled any of their rice containing products, including the baby rice. They continue to sell these products to unsuspecting parents who may be compromising their children's health. Not good enough!
My baby loves this! I would buy this again. Very easy to mix with warm formula milk. I am assured buying organic products for my baby. Only downside was box was covered with plastic on the outside and cereal was already out of the box when it arrived. I find it strange that cereal wasn't within a inner bag in the box. Hope they would change the packaging. >>>>>>> Please click "Yes" if you found my review helpful. >>>>> Please click on my iherb page link above to read the rest of my reviews.Thanks a lot!

Fortunately I bought only one for the first time. Packing is the worst. Card board box filled with cereal and no any inner packing bag. When I got the cereal it was in bad condition because of the Weather conditions. I didn't feed it to my baby and throw out the full pack. I just spent my money in vain. I have given one star because i couldn't submit my review without star.
Not so good

I tasted this rice cereal blended with breast milk myself, I think it's way too sweet for infant, not recommended as baby's first food!
Babies love it!

Both my babies love it and we have no issue with the box packaging. Find the flap easy and friendly to use. Am buying again.
