Avocados: A Good *First* For Baby

Avocados: A Good *First* For Baby


(NAPSA) - Along with baby's first steps and first words, a child's first solid foods are an important milestone in early development. Like adults, most children can benefit from incorporating fruits and vegetables into their diet every day. Introducing nutrient-dense, delicious fruits, such as Hass avocados, to children in their earliest months of life goes a long way towards ensuring they continue to eat well throughout adulthood.


The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that solid foods be introduced to infants between four and six months of age, and that for the first year foods be mashed or pureed.


The creamy consistency and mild taste of avocados makes it one of the best first fresh fruits a baby can enjoy. One-fifth of a medium avocado, or about one ounce, has 50 calories, along with 3.5 grams of unsaturated fats, which are known to be important for normal growth and development of the central nervous system and brain. Additionally, avocados contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients to the diet.


For a quick snack for infants, simply mash a Hass avocado with a spoon and feed directly to baby. When you start introducing your baby to foods with multiple ingredients, try the quick, yummy recipe Easy Hass Avocado and Fruit Baby Food. As children move into the toddler stage, you can try the quick, on-the-go snack Fun-Shaped Mini Hass Avocado and Cheese Sandwiches
