Avocado Baby Food Recipes - First Foods
For a nutritionally complete and tasty meal for your baby food beginner - with an ideal consistency, too - you need do no more than slice open an avocado and spoon its creamy flesh straight into your baby's mouth!
Yes, it's as easy as that... you do not need to cook the fruit or add anything to it!
To make it more manageable for baby's very first meal, spoon it into a bowl and mash it with a fork. For a smoother texture still, you can puree it in a food processor.
If you are introducing avocado to your baby after the recommended age of 6 months, you shouldn't really need to add anything to thin the consistency. But if you DO feel the need to make it a bit more 'soupy', just add a little breast milk or formula as you mash or puree the fruit.
