    I think it's a vegetable but I'm not 100% sure. I gave it to my dd when she was 6mos. It's one of the healthiest first foods. It has lots of "good" fats. I just cut it open and took out the seed peeled it and smashed it with a fork or put it in the blender. She loved them. As she got bigger I would dice them up for her and she could practice those fine motor skills. Avocados were one of my dd's favorite first foods.

    So it's a fruit. I always remember someone telling me that all things that contain seeds are considered fruits.
