Avocados: A Perfect First Food for Baby Led Weaning

Avocados: A Perfect First Food for Baby Led Weaning

Avocados were our quadruplets' first solid food...and this fabulous fruit makes a perfect first food! Not only delicious, but avocados are chock full of nutrients and good fat, not to mention they are the perfect texture for baby led weaning.

As a dietitian and mom to 5 (including quadruplets), avocados have my heart, because avocados:

  • Are packed with nearly 20 vitamins and minerals that are great for kids' growth
  • Contain mad amounts of good fat which babies need for brain development
  • When ripe, are the perfect consistency for baby led weaning

To learn more about how why we think avocados are the perfect first food for babies, check out my video here:

Not sure what first food to offer your baby? Why not avocados? They're the perfect texture for baby led feeding and packed with nutrients and good fats to help baby brain growth.
