Benefits of Baby Avocado

making it easy to digest and its nutrients easy to absorb.

But what really are the benefits of avocados for babies?

Builds an Intelligent Brain

While some panic or even recoil at the word ‘fat’, all of us are creatures that need it,

especially babies.

Did you know that fat could build a better brain for your baby?

Yes, that’s right, but we’re not talking about refined oils,

hydrogenated fat, or transfat.

Instead, we are referring to healthy fat (e.g. from avocado),

one of the most important raw materials for a highly functioning and complex brain.

Briefly, both communication mechanisms and brain cells are built from fat.

Its balance can influence your child’s intelligence

because it makes up the brain’s building blocks

(just like protein for muscles).

Good fat from avocado builds a healthy and intelligent brain,

especially during critical stages of development,

letting him achieve his full potential.

Supplies Essential Nutrients

But maybe you’re asking, “Is high fat, not a problem?”

especially between one and two years of age.

So if ever you’re given advice “not to feed your baby with avocado,” disregard it.

Feeding your baby with it is supplying his body with vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin K, vitamin C,

and vitamin E and minerals, including calcium, iron, potassium, sodium, and zinc—all in one great fruit.
