first food


so my daughter will be 6 months on the 26th (where does the time go?!) and her doctor told us to start her with baby rice cereal for her food. I asked her if it had nutritional value and she said no. so I asked if I could start her with something else and she gave me a HUGE fight about needing to start her with it. I am thinking of refusing because it seems dumb to me to A) give her something with no nutritional value B) give her something iron fortified instead of naturally rich in fiver and C) something that turns into glucose in the body. What did you give your baby for a first food? I want to be armed with ideas at her 6 month wellness check
