Guacamole Recipe Makes a Great Toddler Food

I make guacamole about once a week, and I’ve found that my son is especially fond of it. He also loves whole wheat pita bread, so I squish a little guacamole in small pieces of pita to make him his own tiny sandwiches. Fun finger food, and so healthy too. Avocados have the good fats you need, omega 3’s, and nearly 20 other essential vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients! Babies can eat plain smashed avocado from a very early age because it’s easy to digest. (I used to mash one with banana when my son was first trying new foods.) And avocados aid in the growth and development of the central nervous system and the brain. My, what a smart food.

Here’s my favorite way to prepare guacamole. The added ingredients are also wonderful for growing toddlers.

2 Haas avocados (I look for slightly soft ones with a reddish color)

1 or 2 finely chopped garlic cloves

2 – 3 Tbs. finely chopped onion

1/2 finely chopped tomatojuice of 1/2 lemon

fresh chopped cilantro (a powerful mercury remover, by the way) – about 1 – 2 Tbs.

sea salt to taste (optional)

***For adults, you can add 1/2 finely chopped jalapeño. Naturally, you don’t want to add that if children are eating it.

Run a knife the long way around an avocado, then twist it. Pop out the pit, scoop out the green stuff, and smash. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Enjoy!
