Baby Sign Language: Cereal

Cereal is often a first food for babies. Teach your baby the signs for the word cereal in baby sign language with the following descriptions and videos. You may use either sign for cereal depending on your personal preference.


Hold one hand in front of the chest with the palm facing up. Form the letter C of the sign language alphabet with the other hand. Use the C hand to mimic scooping cereal from a bowl into the mouth.


Form the hand into the signed number one (1). Hold the hand in front of the face with the index finger pointing to the side. Bend the index finger a couple of times in front of the mouth.
