As children grow and develop during their first two years of life, their flavor preferences are heavily influenced both by breastfeeding and the first foods that are introduced into their diets. Fresh avocados appear to be one of the most ideal complementary and transitional foods available. In addition to being nutrient dense, avocados’ neutral flavor profile and smooth, creamy consistency make them an ideal first food for babies.
