Avocados are one of my favourite foods to offer as part of a weaning journey – whether you decide to follow a traditional weaning method or baby led weaning. Here you can find our favourite avocado recipes for babies – some of which utilise purees for babies who are being spoon fed, and some which are perfect for baby led weaning. Whichever method you decide to follow, avocado is such an important food to introduce to your baby!

Why offer avocado to your baby?

I remember being really scared of avocado when I first started weaning Dexter as I just didn’t understand this incredible superfood.

It felt like every time I bought an avocado from the supermarket, it would be tough to open and the fruit inside would be super hard, making it difficult to ease out of it’s shell and definitely not something I wanted to offer to a tiny baby.

Over the years and after lots of trial and error, I’ve discovered that you avocado needs to be left to ripen and have become better at understanding when it’s at it’s optimum time to eat.

Avocados are an incredible source of nutrition, not just for your baby, but for you too. I try to eat at least three a week as the health benefits speak for themselves.
