    It's definitely an acquired taste, in my case... like wine.

    I'm starting to like them the older I get, and the more I try (in the way of guacamole). Most of the time, I don't like them.

    But they are GREAT 1st foods! High in "good" natural fat, soft and bland....kids seem to love them!

    When looking for them in the store, you want to find one that is more black than green, is softer, but not too soft.

    good post - I've always known that I like avocado (yummm guacomole!!) but how do you prepare it for your little ones.. ?
    I am grateful for the post about what to look for when buying one, but have no clue how to prepare it...

    TIA

    The easiest way to prepare an avocado meal for your LO is to peel and mash a ripe avocado, like you would do it with banana.
    I am not a big fan of avocado, but my hubby loves it sliced, with olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper .
    Here is great link about avocado:

    We do child led solids, so I don't mash it. I cut it in half around the seed, turn it open, and scoop the half out with a big spoon. Then I cut it into french fry pieces. You could also just half the half or quarter it rather.

    Yeah no mashing here either. But avacados are great because they are one of the things that has a natural "handle" built right in. They even sell baby sized ones at Whole foods for .25 cents!

    The more black and the more soft you can serve right away. If they are still green and hard, you can put them in a paper bag until they soften up. Then just cut them in half, take out the seed, and mash away! To keep them from turning brown, you can store it with the seed in the container or sprinkle a little lemon juice on it.
