Superfood – Avocado

Avocado is a fruit we don’t see or use often here. From what I’ve read, they make the most perfect first baby food. I serve Avocados  as an exotic indulgence for T, since they are not readily available. The consistency is like that of butter and goes wonderfully well in combination with some fruits.

I also learnt that Avocados contain Omega 3 fatty acids. Especially for a developing, growing baby, that type of fat and the caloric value is a good thing.

 

I have to be careful though with the portions I give him. The first time he loved it so much that I gave him the whole fruit over the course of the day which gave him a slightly upset tummy because of the fruit’s rich fibre content.

Storage:

Split an Avocado into four parts and give one part at a time for an evening snack or breakfast. The remainder could be zip locked, frozen and used as and when required.

As breakfast:

Avocado + Egg yolk (boiled)

As a snack:

Avocado + Banana

Avocado + Melon

Avocado + Pear + Pinch of ground ginger

As a meal:

Avocado + Small tender sweet potato (baked) + Oatmeal or Rice cereal
