Looking for something different to feed your growing baby or picky toddler? Try avocados, the forgotten fruit (at least by Gerber). Here's what's great about avocados: They are loaded with unsaturated good fats, vitamins, and minerals for growing bodies and strong bones. Here are a few ways I've incorporated them into my daughter's diet:
- Create an avocado and pear puree (to add a little sweetness)
- Blend avocado and plain whole milk yogurt
- Mash avocado with chicken (creamy consistency helps the chicken go down easily)
- Spread homemade guacamole (made from avocados) on your child's favorite cracker for a nutritious on-the-go snack.
