Use Them in Baby Food
As a first food, avocado is a nutrient-dense fruit (actually it's a big berry) that's available year round in many parts of the country. Avocados are also a pretty safe food source. Most avocado varieties have thick, tough skins that make them naturally resistant to pests and low in pesticides. Avocados can be a flexible base for other ingredients, too. Mixing applesauce (or another fruit puree) with mashed avocado can provide some variety as well as fast prep. For a lip smacking meal, use your imagination. When it's paired with an avocado, your budding gourmet is more likely to eat his food than wear it.
