Question
Can they eat cream of wheat, cinnamon ?

Answer
Pigs can eat anything people can eat. The problem is people often eat things that are not healthy. Plain cream of wheat, or any other plain hot cereal like oatmeal, is fine. Just let it cool a bit so piggy does not get a burnt tongue.

A touch of cinnamon is ok, too. The problem is many flavored hot cereals are really high in sugar. If piggy gets some by accident do not worry, and a little bit for a treat is fine. But if cooked cereal is going to be part of piggy's regular diet, then it's best to stick with plain cereals.
