Avocado Mash for Babies and Kids


avocado mash for babies

Avocado mash is an excellent first food. It is one of the easiest recipes for babies too. Just scoop out the flesh , mash it and then a yummy breakfast or dinner is ready for your little one. In this post I will write about avocado mash for babies .

Anshika used to love avocados initially, but now she seems uninterested . She makes it a point to taste a bit and make faces . I tasted it too , its so bland !! I wonder how she used to love it when she was 6-7 months or so !! . Her taste buds have evolved now. But when I buy avocados , I make it a point to make her eat in some way or the other singing songs , rhymes and offering her something to play.

Avocados are available in super markets and fruit stores these days. Though it is expensive, I felt its the worth the money given the nutritional contents in it.

Avocados are rich in mono saturated fat , Vitamin K , B6 , folic acid and dietary fibers. When combined with milk, it becomes a wholesome food.

  1. Hi Sangeetha,

    Absolutely love this site! I find this space very inspiring for FTMs.
    Was wondering if you have any ideas for babies who are 5 months old.
    My babies seem to be very eager to try new flavours and seems to be less and less interested in milk and formula feed. If you have a chart that would be great.

    All ideas are welcome!

    Thanks very much,

  11. I used to give avocado juice to Liya. I used to add some dates (along with milk and blend) to it so that it would add some sweet. She was a great fan for some time and later gave up. lol!

  12. I agree with you Sangeetha menon .. Avacado is really good for health . Not only for children but also for adults .Avocados are rich in mono saturated fat , Vitamin K , B6 , folic acid and dietary fibers. Which makes it a food best for any body's health.
