When it comes to baby’s first bites, avocado is one of the best ways to go. Thanks to its high levels of good fats, this superfood helps in the healthy development of the brain and central nervous system, and it’s also loaded with vitamins and minerals. Click through our album for ideas and recipes on how to add this tasty green wonder to your little one’s diet — from purees to solid foods, once they’re ready.

Creamy Avocado Dip

Get the kids involved to mash together this simple dip from Bon Appet’Eat. Paired with fresh veggies or bread (or even all by itself!), it’s the perfect afternoon snack. A hint of garlic, parsley and lemon makes it more exciting than plain ol' avocado, and it's equally tasty smeared on tacos or tortilla chips for older kids and adults.
