Ian has tried his first food: Avocado!!!! We have made the personal decision to bypass rice cereal, or oats because they basically have no nutirional value at all. We have choose avocado because:

Avocado makes a great first food for baby due to its texture and creaminess as well as its high nutrient content.

Avocados are often called one of nature's perfect foods because they are said to contain everything a person needs to survive.

A wonderful "good fat" food for baby's brain and physical development, try an avocado as baby's first food instead of refined cereals.

"Sodium- and cholesterol- free, avocados contain valuable nutrients including 8% of the recommended Daily Value (DV) for folate; 4% DV for fiber and potassium, 4% DV for vitamin E; and 2% DV for iron. A serving of avocado also contains 81 micrograms of the carotenoid lutein and 19 micrograms of beta-carotene. Per serving, avocados have 3.5 grams of unsaturated fats, which are known to be important for normal growth and development of the central nervous system and brain."

So PLEASE don't judge, it's our decision!!!!!!

  1. We skipped cereals too. Elliot hated avocados though. I did use some cereal to thicken some of his foods on occasion. We made our own baby food and some fruits were too thin.
