well? are they? i don't particularly like them but thought i would give LInus a go with some for lunch today.
i squished it all up, and he did eat it... but they're SOOOOOOOOOOO boring.
what can i do to make them more interesting? or shall i just not bother

if he ate it why worry -- they are fab food for kids -- lots of EFAs and vits...

I like them in a salad with rocket and chilli -- linus might not!!

I love avocados on their own...yummy!
Harry loved them when weaning too, but now won't touch em...

I like avocados with prawn cocktail on top! Yum! But I wouldn't give it to a baby lol..

starlover Wed 27-Jul-05 13:58:34

hmm interesting. i am in this kind of rut where i hate giving him anything that i don't like you see... which is stupid i know.
avocado with yoghurt sounds gross! lol

Don't bother, it's not worth the effort - he won't care one way or another!

I love them with a tiny pinch of salt and a very generous pinch of sugar dusted into the gap where the sstone was, and then a few drops of lemon juice poured in. I suppose that's a cheapo way of adding vinaigrette, really. But the babies don't need salt or sugar, so I've got used to eating them neat. Very popular in the Chandelier.

just seems completely pointless eating something with no flavour iyswim... i might try mixing it with something else tomorrow

hana Wed 27-Jul-05 14:13:21

maybe dd2 should have a diet of only avocados !! (she's not on those silly charts at 7 months)

CarolinaMoon Wed 27-Jul-05 14:17:53

Is my ds the only baby who won't eat avocado???

I love them myself, esp sliced up in salads with crispy bacon bits, or made into guacamole - gooorgeous!

just for a laugh

MrsDoolittle Wed 27-Jul-05 14:32:07

banana
and natural yoghurt are great stuff to mix with

Magscat Wed 27-Jul-05 14:32:27

DS used to love avocado mixed up with cottage cheese. So easy peasy to do. DD is yet to be convinced though (but early days for her).

I mixed it with beetroot when weaning DS. He loved it and so did I.
