    I'd say yes. I give Amelie white rice and white bread. OH and myself like white so we don't buy brown. Seems silly to buy and cook the brown stuff just for amelie.

    I think it's just the same as us, brown rice is better for us than white, same with bread etc etc. We tend to give Aisling what we have which is brown rice and best of both bread, can't imagine it makes much of a difference.

    I would keep trying the brown rice...wheat bread too because it is alot better for them but I wouldn't ban the white rice or anything...we eat both here. I do only buy wheat bread for them, I use to buy white because that's what Mark likes, now I make him eat the wheat most of the time lol sometimes I'll buy white but mostly wheat because I know it's better for the kids...luckily they like both breads just fine. They do prefer white rice but like brown too

    I thought it was best not to give too many high fibre foods to babies and young children anyway? As it fills them up so much that they may eat less of other foods.

    The Bible has a bit on this somewhere. Apparently brown rice is fine but for some reason you need to be careful with brown pasta, it's got a different type of fibre in it :shrug:

    I didn't know any of this and since Caitlyn eats curries I'm sure white rice is the least of my worries :lol:

    How old is your little boy? I'm sure he isn't much younger than Caitlyn if he is younger? x
