AAP: Varied diet can help curb arsenic exposure in infants

Parents could prevent arsenic exposure in their babies by giving them varying cereal grains such as barley, multigrain and oatmeal, instead of rice cereal, avoiding rice milk and processed foods with brown rice sweetener, and exclusively breast-feeding them until age 6 months, according to recommendations from the AAP. The AAP also advises pregnant women to eat a variety of grains.
