Our little monkey is crazy about bananas!!!
After showing no interest in cereal, I thought we'd try something with a little flavor. The pediatrician said we could start baby purees as long as we stick to the five day rule - only introduce one food every five days. So, when Avery didn't seem to like the cereal I did some research about the best first foods to introduce. I kept coming up with the same two recommendations bananas and avocados. Both have great nutritional benefits and when mashed up are a very easy consistency for babies.
I absolutely love avocados. In my opinion they are one of the greatest foods on earth and delicious in any mexican dish, sandwich, salad or just sliced with salt. So I was very excited to have Avery try her first avocado. Well, she was less than enthused. In fact she gagged on it. So we waited a few days and switched over to bananas. Success!! She can't get enough of them. I literally can't get her next bite in her mouth quick enough! I can't decide what will be next on her menu... carrots or sweet potatoes. Any suggestions??
