Picture of BABY'S FIRST FOOD : AVOCADO PUREE

The first time a baby eats solids is a milestone both for the mother and child. Avocado puree is a simple recipe that one can try out for babies above 6 months. 

Avocado's are easily digestible for babies and require no cooking. AVOCADOS are rich in omega-3s which are great for the brain. They have a mild flavor and texture which are ideal for babies.

Here's a simple tutorial on serving the Avocado puree for your child. 

Step 1: Picking the Right Avocado

Look for the avocado's that have a firm texture but slightly ripe to touch. The color can be green or dark purple but that doesn't indicate ripeness. One part of avocado mixed with breast milk or formula can make about 250 ml of puree.

Step 2: Wash and Cut Open the Avocado

Slice the avocado in the middle lengthwise around the seed or the pit. Use a spoon the remove the seed. Scoop the flesh out of each of the side with a spoon.

Step 3: Mash the Avocado

Mash the avocado with a fork in a bowl for older babies. For a six month old blend it smooth in a food processor. Use water or breast milk/ formula to achieve the right consistency.

Step 4: Avocado Puree Is Ready to Serve

Babies like avocados alone. But when mixed with a banana it packs in all the goodness of omega 3 and potassium. Try not to refrigerate the avocado puree. Use it all at once.

I tried your instructions for my LO. 1 avocado mixed with breast milk. She ate it all like she liked it. But then she didn't want to feed for next 12 hours. She wouldn't take bottle or any other food. It's like avocado filled her up way too much. I think you need to mention how much per serving parents can feed LO safely.

Agreed. Point well made. Thanks for the information.

...or any other guacamole recipe.

If I'm not mistaken, avocados have more potassium in them than bananas.  Which is not to say don't to it, but you already have a potassium punch right there with the avos.
