Full of beans and grains

As promised, I wanted to provide a list of possible grains and beans that can be used for making your own baby cereal. Between 4-9 months these grains are used alone, or mixed with other grains. But after nine months old, grains are mixed with beans to make a complete protein. I've explained how to make super porridge in another post.
