Avocado for Your Baby – Introducing Avocado Baby Food Recipes

Avocado makes a great first food for baby due to its texture and creaminess; an extra bonus is that avocado is full or “good” fats and has a high nutrient content!

The Goodness of Avocado for your baby:

Avocados are often called one of nature’s perfect foods because they are said to contain everything a person needs to survive. A wonderful “good fat” food for baby’s brain and physical development, try an avocado as baby’s first food instead of refined cereals.

“Sodium- and cholesterol- free, avocados contain valuable nutrients including 8% of the recommended Daily Value (DV) for folate; 4% DV for fiber and potassium, 4% DV for vitamin E; and 2% DV for iron. A serving of avocado also contains 81 micrograms of the carotenoid lutein and 19 micrograms of beta-carotene. Per serving, avocados have 3.5 grams of unsaturated fats, which are known to be important for normal growth and development of the central nervous system and brain. ” http://www.californiaavocado.com/nutrition

 When can I introduce Avocado to my baby?

Avocado is a wonderful first food for baby. An avocado is smooth and creamy when mashed – a perfect food that will be more readily accepted as baby begins solids. Avocado may be offered as early as 4 – 6 months old. Babies need carbohydrates, and fats as well as proteins for their growth during the crucial first year and even into the second year.

As you begin to introduce a wide variety of foods, you will find that mashing an avocado and mixing with applesauce, peaches or pears, bananas and even yogurt make a wonderful meal or snack.

Yes, Avocados are full of fat! Don’t worry about the fat content of an avocado, babies should NOT be on a “low fat” diet. Babies need fat in their diets for proper growth and brain development/ Please disregard any advice to not feed avocados because they are high in fats. If you have any doubts, as always we recommend you consult your pediatrician.

Avocados are high in monounsaturated fat, that’s the good kind of fat! A medium size avocado contains approximately 322 calories and up to 30 grams of fat – WOW. 1 cup of avocado puree contains almost 700 calories as it would take approximately 2 avocados to make a cup. The benefits of avocados far outweigh the “risks”.

 Avocados have been associated with Latex allergies and sensitivities so ask your pediatrician about introducing bananas to your baby if there is a history of Latex issues.

How to select the perfect Avocado for baby food

 According to the EWG, avocados are one of the 15 foods least contaminated with pesticides so purchasing organic is your choice.

When selecting an Avocado, you want a dark green color with bumpy texture. The fruit should be firm yet yielding when gently pushed.

When an avocado is sliced in half, the flesh color should be a green that gently transforms into a buttery yellow around the pit.

The best way to cook Avocados for Baby Food

Avocado is one of the easiest foods to prepare for homemade baby food because you don’t have to cook it! Avocados are served fresh from their peels. There is no need to cook avocados for baby or adult. Give an avocado a gentle roll around your counter to help separate the meat from the shell before you slice.

How to Freeze Avocados for Baby Food:

I freeze in avocado in slices. For the babies, I take out a slice, mash it up and then serve. The browning of the avocado seemed to be less than when I mashed/pureed it and then froze it.

You can also create a bath of:

  • 1/2 cup water and
  • 2 squeezes-drips of lemon juice

Bathing the slices in mixture will help to retard browning.

Dip the slices in the bath mix then set on a baking sheet that has been covered in parchment paper. Transfer the sheet to the freezer and allow to freeze. Once frozen, transfer the avocado slices to freezer bags.

**But you may not want to feed citrus or acidic fruits to a baby before 1 yr particularly if your baby gets rashy from other foods. Using a drip or 2 of lemon juice in a puree or to bathe several avocado slices is not the same as pureeing up a few orange slices and serving them.

Freezing Avocado – What our Visitors say:

Jane in IL says: I just mash and then freeze in trays. I keep the mashed avocado a bit chunky. It gets a little brown but otherwise thaws out nicely.

Samantha in Ontario says: We freeze avocado in slices after a water bath with a dash of lime juice. My mom says lime helps preserve color and flavor better. I did notice that the thawed slices are a bit mushy and runny. I mix in a bit of cereal or banana and yogurt and all is well.

Tasty Avocado Baby Food Combinations

These simple avocado baby food recipes are lip-smacking good

By Sarah Prager

Avocado baby food offers a nutritious first step in solid foods for babies. To begin with, avocados contain 20 vitamins and minerals, including folate, potassium, iron, zinc, and vitamins A, C, E, and K, plus several variants of vitamin B. In addition, avocados are packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats without no cholesterol or sodium. Avocados are very low in saturated fat, too. Babies need omega-3 fatty acids to promote brain and eye development, and avocados are one of the fattiest plant foods that are a great source of oleic acid, an important omega-3 that’s also found in olive oil.


  • Easy, fun-flavored yummy avocado/fruit puree
  • Super nutritious, avocado/green vegetable puree
  • Crispy, easy-to-grab coated avocado slices
  • Vitamin-packed avocado/banana smoothie
  • Avocado baby food and sweet potato puree
  • Delicious avocado blueberry muffins
  • Protein Power avocado/egg puree
  • How early can avocados be introduced to baby?

Conveniently, avocados are also soft and easy for babies to gum and swallow. They’re simple for busy parents and caregivers to mash with a fork or puree in a food processor. Plus, avocados are easy to combine with other healthy foods for simple baby foods. So, which avocado baby foods should you make at home? Here are seven simple recipe ideas for your little one to enjoy that are a snap to make.

Easy, fun-flavored yummy avocado/fruit puree

For a quick avocado baby food meal, puree avocado in a food processor or small blender with a sweet fruit, and your baby will gobble it up. Here are some fruits that make a tasty combination with avocado:

  • Banana
  • Apple
  • Pear
  • Kiwi
  • Pineapple
  • Strawberry

With these purees, as with any baby food purees, you can add water, breast milk, or formula to change the consistency. Avocados are rather firm and will make a whipped consistency, but if you add liquid, the puree will thin out. The thinner the consistency, the easier the puree is for a baby to swallow. There isn’t any need to cook avocados, but with harder fruits like apples, you may want to steam them first before pureeing.

You can also alternate the amounts of each ingredient as needed. You can add one whole avocado in with half an apple of steamed slices with a little water, or you could throw in one to 10 strawberries, depending on what you find your baby prefers. The avocado to fruit ratio is totally up to you and dependent on what baby likes.

Super nutritious, avocado/green vegetable puree

Go green with this tasty and healthy avocado/veggie puree. These vegetables make nutritious and delicious combo purees with avocado:

  • Peas
  • Broccoli
  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Asparagus

Just like the fruit purees, you can add liquid to change the consistency and play with the ratio to find the combination your baby likes best.

Crispy, easy-to-grab coated avocado slices

If you’ve ever tried serving your baby raw avocado, you know it’s very slippery. However, cutting the avocado into slices allows babies to grasp and feed themselves, helping to develop fine motor skills. Moreover, you can coat the slices in a breadcrumb mixture made of crumbled baby crackers, puffs, or wafers to make the slices easier to hold. It also makes good use of the dust at the bottom of the puffs container.

Vitamin-packed avocado/banana smoothie

Of course, you can DIY any smoothie recipe, but here are a few avocado combos perfect for a nutritious smoothie for baby:

  • Avocado, banana, spinach, and yogurt
  • Avocado, banana, blueberries, and baby oatmeal
  • Avocado, banana, mango, and peach
  • Avocado, banana, and strawberries

Mix and match all you want to find that perfect avocado/banana smoothie your baby loves. Pop it all in the blender with your choice of liquid (water, breast milk, or formula) and you’re done! You can add flax or chia seeds to any of these recipes for extra nutrition or maple syrup for a touch of sweetness.

Avocado baby food and sweet potato puree

Sweet potatoes are cheap, naturally sweet on the little one’s taste buds, and easy to cook and puree. After you cook two cups of diced sweet potatoes, mix them with the pulp of one avocado in a blender. Then, add one cup of water at a time, until you get the thickness of the puree you’re looking for.

Delicious avocado blueberry muffins

If you’re ready to get more complex, go all out by baking avocados into muffins using this recipe. You’ll get 36 mini muffins that store in a Tupperware container on the counter for a week. This one is best for older babies who can chew beyond purees. They’re great for toddlers too.

Protein Power avocado/egg puree

For this nutrition powerhouse meal, add a hard-boiled egg (never serve raw or undercooked egg to a baby) to a half of an avocado with a tablespoon of water (or breast milk or formula) and blend. For even better consistency, add only the hard-boiled yolk to the mixture and set the hard-boiled whites aside for another recipe.

How early can avocados be introduced to baby?

You can give your baby their first taste of avocado right around the six-month milestone. It’s around the same time that you’ll be introducing fruits, vegetables, and solid foods other than rice cereal.

Feeding a baby raw, mashed avocado is certainly a good introductory food, but with these combinations, you’ll be enhancing the flavors and increasing the nutrition, all while helping to avoid a picky eater by giving a diversity of tastes in each meal. An avocado can freeze for up to a month before losing its nutritional value and taste, so store the extra puree in ice cube trays and defrost as needed. Since avocados can turn brown so quickly, freeze them right away if you’re not going to serve them immediately. Don’t forget to sneak yourself a taste while you’re cooking. Avocados are a healthy pick for adults too.

The positive properties of avocados lie in the large number of useful substances contained in it. This is a whole complex of vitamins and minerals. Useful for digestion is the fruit fiber of a ripe avocado grated into gruel. It should be noted that its calorie content is very high - 20Kk per 100 grams of product.

What causes controversy in the scientific community

Avocado is one of the healthiest foods

This fruit is often prescribed for adults to lower cholesterol. For a week of systematic intake, indicators in adults decrease by 30%. The crumbs cannot have such problems with cholesterol, as well as cataracts. In addition to preventing all age-related changes, avocados prevent the development of cancer cells. nine0003 Nutritional value and chemical composition of avocado

For children, this fruit is useful because the microelements contained in it contribute to the development of physical and mental. Scientists argue about the age at which avocados can be given to children. And this is in America, where this fruit has long been an integral part of the diet.

For Russia, avocado is an exotic product, which once again speaks against it. It has always been believed that vegetables and fruits that grow in the region where a person lives bring the greatest benefit. nine0003

Given that the avocado is also a strong aphrodisiac, the need for its introduction into the children's diet remains in question.

Avocado for the first food

The delicate texture of the first fruit food is easier for the baby's body to digest than the puree of vegetables and herbs. A more subtle unobtrusive taste also speaks in favor of fruit rather than vegetable complementary foods. But is it so important to give all the vitamins and minerals at once when you can please your child with a variety of flavors of fruits and vegetables that are less high in calories and do not contain "adult" vitamins. For example, "Omega-3" may be an extra addition to the mandatory vitamin "D" complex for babies. nine0003 Despite the variety of avocado recipes for children, it is better to consult a doctor.

When introducing avocados into baby food, consult your doctor. Advice on the age at which to give avocados is mixed.

It is better to introduce avocado after applesauce

Some scientists are of the opinion that this fruit should not be given to children under 1 year old. Others recommend it as the first complementary food. Here again, the exact age cannot be named, because the first complementary foods for breastfed children are recommended to be introduced no earlier than the baby is 6 months old. nine0003

The stomach of a bottle-fed baby is ready to accept tender fruit pulp from 3-4 months. As a rule, for 3-month-old children, applesauce becomes the first complementary food. Avocado has a delicate texture similar to an apple. Its taste is not bright, which can be a good addition to milk. But still, you can enter it a month after the first apple food and banana samples.

What should an avocado look like?

With the appearance of avocados, not everything is clear due to the large number of its varieties. On Russian shelves, you can most often find 4 varieties out of 400 - these are:

Avocado varieties
  • "Gwen" - the fruits of this variety are oblong and rather large. Their skin is deep green. The flesh is yellow-green. The closer to the bone, the more yellow.
  • "Reed" also refers to large-fruited varieties. The shape of the fruit is round, the flesh is light yellow, covered with a thick pimply skin of dark green color.
  • Sweetish pulp under a smooth green skin is hidden in large fruits of the Fuerte variety.
  • The most common pear-shaped fruits of medium size are the fruits of the Zutano variety. The flesh of the fruit is often white, sometimes yellowish. The smooth skin is easy to peel off. nine0010

There are a lot of varieties, so it is difficult to distinguish which of the fruits is ripe and which is not by the appearance of the peel. The main thing is that the peel is green, not purple. For some varieties, the brown color of the fruit peel is acceptable.

How to choose a healthy avocado?

"Maturity" avocado

When choosing an exotic fruit, you can trust your hands and ears. The first step is to touch the fruit: if it is too hard and when pressed with your fingers, its shape remains unchanged, it is not ripe. The soft fruit of the avocado belongs to the category of overripe. There is a high possibility that under a dense peel the process of decay or fermentation has already begun. It is necessary to choose the golden mean. An obligatory criterion when checking the fruit is the restoration of its original shape after pressing. There should be no dents on the peel. nine0003

It's even easier to tell when an avocado is ripe by ear. When shaking it, the stone should make a sound of hitting the shell. If this does not happen, the fruit is not ripe, the grain in the stone fits snugly.

When choosing between unripe and overripe avocados, it is better to give preference to the first. After a couple of days of lying, he will reach the required condition, like a pear.

Storage conditions

Avocados are best stored at room temperature

Store at room temperature. You can’t put it in a freezer or refrigerator - this fruit does not tolerate sub-zero temperatures, it deteriorates very quickly if stored improperly. Like all fruits, it must be eaten fresh, only then it will give the maximum benefit to the body and will not cause harm. nine0003


Possible cross-reactions are detected in the diagnosis of allergies

The worst thing to give avocados to children suffering from latex allergies. At first glance, latex and fruit are unrelated. Upon a detailed study of the problem, it turned out that intolerance to bananas, apples, cherries, papaya, melons, tomatoes can subsequently affect cross-allergy. This will lead to severe forms of dermatitis on skin contact with latex products.

The threat of avocados is that latex proteins from the sap of euphorbia and mulberry trees are similar to those found in avocados. Latex products, which include nipples and pacifiers, with such a disease, will provoke the production of IgE. This type of immunoglobulin leads to the clinical manifestations of an allergic reaction. nine0003

In order not to condemn the child to suffering, it is necessary to consult a doctor before introducing exotic complementary foods. If the baby has problems after trying bananas, then avocados should not be given to him.

Avocado: is it possible for children to eat it - the expert answered

Avocado is a healthy and tasty product that everyone can and should eat, unless, of course, there is an allergy. The fruit goes well with fish, vegetables, salt, pepper, bread, and is also an ideal ingredient for healthy smoothies and desserts. nine0003

The founder of the largest Ukrainian-language group on Facebook about complementary foods, baby food expert Viktoria Stelmakh, exclusively for FoodOboz, told whether children can eat avocados.

Can avocados be given to babies under 6 months old?

Video of the Day

"Avocado is a great choice for a baby's first solid food. It's actually a great choice for anyone, but especially for babies. Avocado can be offered as soon as the baby is ready for solid foods - complementary foods, 6 months . So there's no reason why you can't give avocados to your baby," Victoria said.

The expert noted that avocados are indeed one of the best foods you can offer your baby from the very beginning of weaning!

"Ripe avocados are soft and rich nutrients, making them an excellent first food. For example, in the USA, avocado is the TOP-1 product at the beginning. Most pediatricians worldwide put it at #1 on their list of The 10 Best Fruits for Babies because avocado nutrition is good for baby development,” explained the expert. but everywhere, and it's easy to see why. The fruit is easy to prepare rich in fiber and healthy fats that babies need to support digestion and brain development, zinc to support immune health. The healthy fats in avocados also make them a good option for making butter, which appropriately has a high smoke point - better for frying. Contrary to what you may have heard, they do not contain a lot of protein, however, they are a rich source of poly- and monounsaturated fats, "said Victoria.

"Infants and young children require more fat, not only do they contribute to the normal development of the brain and nervous system, they also help their body absorb important vitamins such as A, D, E and K. This is one of the reasons why avocados are included in conditional list 10 foods for low weight babies recommended by many nutritionists and pediatricians If your child's pediatrician has ruled out medical causes of slow weight gain, such as heart or digestive problems, consider feeding babies high-calorie whole foods after 6 months. , which can promote healthy weight gain," Victoria explained. nine0003

The expert added that avocados are also included in the list of auxiliary products for children's constipation.

"That's because it's a source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, which can help relieve constipation. In addition, a 2019 study found that replacing carbohydrates with fat and fiber from avocados increased satiety. Another study found that children who regularly ate avocados were 9% less likely to become overweight or obese over a period of 4 to 11 years compared to those who did not consume avocados regularly," the expert said. nine0003

Health Benefits for Baby (MUFA):

- Infants require more dietary fat than adults.

"Actually, 50% of their energy supply should come from fat (as opposed to 30% for adults), avocados are high in fat compared to other foods, so are great for giving your child more bang for their buck," Victoria explained.

- avocados are high in oleic acid, a type of healthy fat from the group of monounsaturated fats (omega-9).

"It is also the main type of fat in breast milk. Oleic acid is important for the growth and development of the nervous system and brain. It is best known for its role in reducing the risk of heart disease and reducing inflammation in the body," the expert said.

- Avocado's fat content also helps your child absorb fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K and phytonutrients more efficiently.

- In addition to monounsaturated fats, avocados also contain some polyunsaturated fats (omega-6) and a few saturated fats.

"In general, this is a really nutritious food that should be included in your child's diet," summed up Victoria.

How to choose an avocado?

Avocado is not a canned baby food, so store fresh avocado is best.

Avocado is not on the list of dangerous foods for children with a high risk of choking .

When an avocado ripens, it has a very soft, creamy texture, although in theory a person can choke on any food - even water. All you need to do is make sure you create a safe eating environment, serve the product in a safe serving way, and stay within arm's reach of your child while eating. nine0003

How common are avocado allergies in children?

Avocado allergy is rare because avocado is not on the list of allergens and allergy to it is not common, it is more individual and cross-reactive. Avocado allergies are more likely to occur in people who are already allergic to bananas, chestnuts, or kiwis, and those who are allergic to latex or certain types of pollen may be allergic to avocados or suffer from oral allergy syndrome . Oral Allergy Syndrome usually results in a transient itching or burning sensation in the mouth and is unlikely to lead to a dangerous reaction,” the expert explained. You can simply cut an avocado in half, pull out the big ankle in the middle, and then scoop up the green avocado fruit with a spoon. A good avocado has the consistency of butter. If you have chosen mashed baby food, you can mash it with a fork, or use a blender. If your child is on self-feeding (BLV), then cut it into safe slices - slices, make notches on it. Or cut it with a curly knife so that it is convenient for the child to take it with the handles, "said Victoria.

Avocados are best given to children in small portions

"As with any new food for a child, start with a small amount for the first few servings. If there is no adverse reaction, gradually increase the amount at subsequent meals," the specialist explained.

Victoria added that the main changes occur in the nutrition of infants and toddlers during the first two years of life.
