I would feed it to them. I don't think it matters wet or dry, but they may be able to eat it more easily if it was mixed with a little water.

Be sure it's not the kind of baby cereal with added iron. The chickens probably wouldn't be able to tolerate the amount of iron found in most baby cereals.

the front doesn't say with iron, but there is Iron in the nutritional index bar.....Since I am not sure maybe I should toss it?

I dunno Ema. I tend to be err on the side of caution when feeding my chickens. When in doubt about something, I don't feed it. Just MHO.

So long as it's not spoiled mix small to moderate amounts of it dry into their regular ration. They won't be getting enough of it at any one time for the additional iron to hurt them. They'd have to eat it straight for that.
