The cereal sign looks like a worm or caterpillar inching along, eating your cereal. Take you dominant hand in a fist with your index finger extending and then retracting as you move your hand along across your mouth's horizon.
If your baby's diet includes cereal, make the sign before you offer them some cereal such as Cheerios.
With food like cereal, teach your baby the sign on the real thing first and then use the cereal flash card to help them practice.

I have seen the sign done as someone spooning cereal into their mouth.
ADMIN – Hi Sheridan,
Yes, cereal can also be done that way. If that variation is easier for you, feel free to use it.
Just wondering why the video and the flash card are not the same cereal sign I have seen on other sites.
ADMIN – Hi Nadia,
Cereal can be signed in a couple of different ways. The other common way of signing cereal looks like you are making your dominant hand into a scoop and scooping cereal out of a bowl (made from your non-dominant hand). Both ways are equally correct.
