When it comes to a baby's health, variety is the spice of life. If your baby has started eating solids, avocado is one of the most nutrient packed and tasty foods they can eat. They'll love the texture and creaminess and as well as being completely unprocessed, they're full of beneficial fats, vitamins and minerals.
Babies, toddlers and young children loved tasting the yummy spoonfuls of ripe mashed avocado on offer, while parents and older siblings were amazed at how delicious avocado sprinkled with a pinch of salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice could be.
“Avocados are a brilliant food for your baby’s health and development. The monounsaturated fats found in avocados are needed for your baby's brain and nervous system, as is vitamin B also found in avocado which is vital for your baby’s neural retention” commented avocado Nutritional Spokeswoman Zoe Bingley-Pullin, who attended the expo to educate parents about the benefits of eating avocado.
