Avacodo is probably not what you think of when you think of a baby’s first food, but avocados are a really great food for babies to try first. They have a mild taste, have a creamy smooth texture, and are very nutritious. They are loaded in vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids. One half cup of avocado contains 6% of the recommended dietary allowance, RDA, (for 7-12 month old infants) for iron, 128% RDA for folate, 966% RDA for Vitamin K, 45% RDA for Vitamin E, and 83% RDA for potassium. Avocado is also a good source of lutein which is an important antioxidant that helps with eye, vision and skin health.
