Intro: 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.
