Ugh I think I need to find an organic rice cereal! I wish it said if some brands tested lower than others.

Found this on another website if you are looking for an alternative!

Switch to non-rice baby cereals, such as oatmeal or mixed grains.

Powdered cereals are convenient and often used to thicken baby purees, but Consumer Reports found more than 95 parts per billion of arsenic in every brand of infant rice cereals it tested, nearly 10 times the legal limit for drinking water. Look for non-rice whole grain or oat cereals, or make your own by blending oats in a food processor and then cooking them with water.

We've never done cereal anyways- everything I've read says it's empty calories and we practice BLW. I hate messing with baby foods because I am LAZYYYY so we go straight to age appropriate table foods.
