A good choice for baby’s first food – new SunRice Baby Rice Cereal

Starting your baby on solid foods is an exciting milestone in their development. All babies are different, so wait until your baby is showing a number of signs before starting them on solids. Your baby may seem hungry after breastfeeding or formula feeds and they may make chewing movements and reach out when seeing you eating.

Most babies start solids between 5 and 7 months of age. It is recommended by the Ministry of Health, Plunket and the World Health Organisation to wait until 6 months before starting your baby on solids.

Baby rice cereal is recommended as a first food for infants by Plunket* and the Ministry of Health** as plain, smooth and soft foods are good for getting your baby used to solids.

We gave members with babies aged 5 to 10 months the opportunity to trial and review SunRice Baby Rice Cereal. See their photos below and scroll down to read more reviews.

Smooth and creamy. Easy to mix with both fruit and vegetables. Packaging great with the easy resealable top. Baby loved both flavours. Would definitely buy again.


My 7 month old tried the SunRice Baby Rice Cereal today for the first time and she loved it and ate every last drop! She prefers her foods to be more smooth so the texture was perfect for her as we have found some other brands aren’t smooth enough for her liking.


My son had the plain one as a base for the stew we ate for dinner and he ate it all.
He had the veggie one by itself and loved it, it’s great to see a veggie product as a lot of baby food is fruit based.


To make it a bit easier I’m going to add an old formula scoop to the bag so I know how much cereal to add (also easier if someone else is making her food for her, eg I can just say add 1 scoop or 2 with 50ml formula to get the right consistency). I love that it’s got no added sugars and has no artificial flavour but is a good source of iron to help her developing body.


The mixed vege flavour smells very pleasant, makes me want to eat it myself.


So easy to mix, lovey and smooth and so easy for baby to eat. Great to have the added iron. We will be using this SunRice Baby Rice Cereal again and again. It is good that it also comes in the vegetable variety, with carrots, sweet potato and pumpkin that is an easy way to introduce these vegies.


Usually with other brands he will only eat it with another flavour added but I love with this there was the choice for mixed veges and he loved it just as it was. This makes it so much more convenient when we are on the go as we don’t have to worry about taking something to add into it.


My 7 month old son absolutely loves his sun rice baby rice! We mix our with breast milk and he devours it every time! Thank you so much for this amazing product! We will be looking out for it at the supermarket!

    I received the mixed vege flavour for both packs. My six month old grandson enjoyed this cereal made with formula milk. To start with he screwed his face up but he did continue to eat this and finished his full serving. It was a smooth texture and great that the pack is resealable. Thank you for the opportunity to try this 🙂

    We received the two packs of rice cereal with vegetables variety. My son who is nearly 7 months took to it well. We mixed with formula for a smooth consistency and have tried with avocado and fruit as well as a dinner option with veggies and meat. Its a good product on its own but my son prefers rice cereal mixed it with other food to help as wasn’t keen on it by itself. I like it has good iron content and the colour texture is good and easily digestible for baby. A great introductory product for baby on solids and can be used in a variety of ways. I will continue to use it and buy more in the future as a different option. I like that it has some vegetable puree in it whereas other brands/ varieties just have fruit.
    Thank you for selecting us to trial the product.

    We received 2 packets of the mixed vegetables to trial for my 7mo lad , we opened it straight away to try.
    First thoughts on opening the packet was it smelled very sweet like flowers , upon inspecting the ingredients I learned it had carrot , pumpkin and sweet potato as the main flavours (yum!) And thought this would make it great for dinners to go with stews or chicken beef etc.
    Today I grabbed a spoonful and slowly mixed milk in to get the consistency I needed/Desired will full fat milk. I will try formula and just boiled water next time to see his reactions.
    When he went to try it , he pulled a “what on earth is this mum” face , ha ha. However we persevered and he continued eating it not minding the flavour, usually when he eats he noms – no noms from him today. I would give a rating of 6 out of 10 based on his reaction, nom noms and how quick he wanted to eat it. 😄

    I received the mixed vegetable. I thought is was a great base to mix flavours into and we often added some vegetables to it which she really enjoyed and even found it versitile enough to add sweet things like mashed banana and honey or stewed apple and cinnamon to it. At first I found it a bit hard to mix but have the the temperatures better now. Love the packet is resealable and hope maybe one day it could come in pouches in a box like coffee ready to go sachets are so they could be easily portable with little mess or need to measure if you were out.
    Thanks guys theses were great

    My 5 month old is just starting solids we would love to give this a go

    Okay so my baby is a wee bit older. He’s 18 months. But he’s quite a picky eater, and it has been a struggle to maintain his body weight since he was born at 9th percentile, and is now around 2nd percentile. I always try and feed him iron enriched foods as he’s not keen on eating meat, so would love to try this. Baby rice cereal also has a very special place in my heart, as I was very low weight and appetite from age 5 so when at 7 my mum had my little brother she would let me eat his baby rice and I loved it. Still do. During my pregnancy with my son I suffered throughout with Hyperemesis Gravidarum, severe pregnancy sickness, and lost 15kg. I ate baby rice for breakfast daily as I discovered this was one of 5-10 safe foods, ones that would stay down every single time. It helped me gain some weight as it had for me as a child, and I know it would help my son too. Full circle.

    Just started solids and this sounds great to transition with. The mixed vegetable sounds the best for my fussy baby butthe plain one could also be good to mix my own flavours in or even make a sweet version

  8. Farmertrix 04/10/2021 at 1:29 pm

    I would love to try for my wee lad coming up 7 months – he loveeeees his food and loves the rice , would love to give this a try and see if he loves it

  9. terry100 02/10/2021 at 10:54 am

    I have a five month old Grandson who has recently started solids that I would like to register for this product to try. So far he is enjoying his first foods so hopefully this will be one he likes too. 🙂

  10. CPunnett 01/10/2021 at 8:57 pm

    Hi this would be great to try please for my son who has just turned 6 months.

  11. taarz13 01/10/2021 at 7:08 pm

    Would love to test the SunRice Baby rice out on my nearly 3month old as he is reaching the milestone for eating. I would like to try something that is natural and healthy and easy on the digestive system.

  12. Aimz2416 03/09/2021 at 8:26 am

    I was excited to try this product. Unfortunately my baby didn’t enjoy it. Tried it in insulation and mixed into other things. Will continue to try him on it in case!

    My 6month old baby girl started on solids a week ago and the baby rice cereal in Original flavor was her first food to try, she loved it eventhough it was her first time to try it, the next few days we mixed the rice cereal with pureed carrots and sweet potatoes. It is very easy to prepare and love it that we can mixed it with any kind of pureed vegies or fruits. Thank you for considering us for the free trial packs to try.

    My 6 month old is supper fussy and have been finding feeding times difficult, I received these on Friday and tried it straight away I loved that I can mix it with my breastmilk and after the first time she loved it! I’ve continued to feed her this every lunch time, but tonight I added some to her vegies to see if it would help her eat them and to my surprise it work. I definitely will be using this product and will be buying more 100% would recommend I’m glad I found something she really likes and is guaranteed to eat thanks so much

    I received the rice cereal in 2 different flavours. They came in a box and really nicely packed. My son is 7 months old and he loved ithe mixed vegetables flavour the most.
    Now it becomes the part of his everyday lunch. I tried it with matched banana and sometimes with pumpkin puree too.. he loved it too much that he always want to have more.
    I also mixed avacado and rice cereal he loved it. We already bought more for him as its his favourite . He can have it anytime with formula and water. Its easy to make too. Would love to recommend to everyone to try this for their babies and they gonna love it too. Another best thing is that its high in iron. So really really good for kids.

    Thank you for the free trail packs. Its always good to have free trials so we can try them and if our kids like them we can buy them too.
