20Must Try: Avocado

Avocados aren’t just for guac! Avocados are a great choice as a first food for the baby. Avocados deliver some great nutrients to your babe, including a good dose of healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. Avocados can be offered as a first food around six months of age.

In addition to

the nutrition, avocados have a great texture for that first food. As long as you are patient enough to let them ripen properly, they are oh so smooth and creamy. And a bonus for Mom? No steaming or cooking required!

Here’s a tip: grab a ripe avocado and mash it until it’s smooth and creamy. Add enough breast milk or formula until it’s the right consistency. Start out with a thinner consistency for younger babies. As your baby gets used to eating, you can make the consistency thicker if you want to.
