Avocado is a great first food choice.
The avocado is one of nature’s perfect foods. It contains an amazing balance of healthy fats, fiber, potassium, iron, folate and even Vitamin E – just to name a few. It has been said that a person lost in a jungle could survive on avocados due to all the nutritional components found in avocados.
Besides the super nutritional qualities of the humble avocado, it is easy to prepare and can be made into a very creamy texture that beginning eaters will appreciate. The avocado also makes a great first food for those who may be choosing a Baby Led Weaning path. The avocado, when ripe, is easily mashed between baby’s gums and also easily squished with baby’s fingers. One of the best parts about choosing to feed your baby avocados is that they don’t have to be cooked! Simply cut the avocado in half, remove the pit then scrape the meat out – now you’re ready to mash or puree as needed.
