Avocado

Yield 1/2 cup or 2 (1/4-cup) servings (serving size: 1/4 cup)
Avocados are a great portable option for baby when dining out. Use a dinner knife to halve an avocado, reserve one half in a plastic bag, and serve the remaining half to baby. Ripe avocados are usually soft enough to scoop out each bite and serve to baby using the skin as the serving bowl.

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado, halved
  • 2 tablespoons water, formula, or breast milk

How to Make It

  1. Scoop out flesh from one avocado half; reserve avocado half with pit for a later use. Mash avocado with a fork, adding 2 tablespoons water, formula, or breast milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, to reach desired consistency. Serve immediately.
