I have never given my pa son any rice but was wondering if anybody out there does. Is it safe for them to eat? thanks Kathy

My ds LOVES rice. We have it frequently with all of our dinners and he has NEVER had any type of reaction.
Hope this helps.

We use both Carolina and Lundberg Sushi Rice all the time with no problems.

Spoke to Uncle Bens rice company last month and they said their instant white and brown rice are safe. Stay away from anything with spices or spice packets in them. You should call and check yourself anyway but she was very knowledgable.

We use Calrose for white rice and Lundberg's for brown. I called lundberg's and they said their basic brown rices are safe but not any of the flavored varieties (which our store doesn't carry anyway). I've been using calrose since before my dd was born so I just kept using it. It's a short grain rice-most rices are long grain. BTW-Riceland makes peanut oil.

My DD had to go on an allergen elimination diet when she was an infant because she had so many food intolerences and allergies. White and brown rice were all she ate for two days and then gradually we added back one food at a time until we pinpointed what her trigger foods were. This was BEFORE PA, while she was still eating baby food and formula. It was medically supervised and I did a lot a research before I agreed to let an infant eat nothing but rice for even such a short time.
Rice is considered one of the LEAST allergenic foods. In fact the only "milk" product she could tolerate was Rice Milk until she was around 3, when she began to drink goats milk.
Rice is still one of her staple foods and we use seasoned rice, unless the labels indicate a potential allergen
I'd try it.
