Did you know that avocados are actually a fruit?
Avocados are high in fat, but the type of fat is a good fat called mono-unsaturated (a heart-healthy food).
One-third of an avocado has about 80 calories, and over 20 healthy nutrients, including 10% of kids’ daily value of folate, and 6% of fiber and potassium. Avocados are nutrient-dense, which means they provide a lot of vitamins, minerals, and other healthy nutrients with relatively few calories.
The creamy consistency and mild flavor of avocados make it an easy to enjoy fresh food for babies and toddlers.
