#7 of 8 Super Healthy Foods We Guarantee Your Kid will Eat

Avocado

Avocado is full of monounsaturated fats, the “good” fats that kids actually need in their diet every day. In fact, it’s recommended that 25 to 35% of kid’s calories come from fats, primarily the unsaturated ones. So how do you get your child to eat this creamy green fruit?  We’ve found avocado goes over well with kids when served as a spread on wraps in place of mayonnaise or cream cheese. Ripe avocado should mash easily with a fork. Mix in a dash of lemon juice and salt, and you’ve got a tasty spread or dip.  Start kids on avocado early since fat intake is particularly important in the early years. In fact, ripe avocado is a perfect baby food spooned straight out of its peel.

My son doesn't care for avocado in any format, not even guacamole... Which is unusual, because he's not a picky eater. I love avocado, though!

The pic made my mouth water. I looooooove guacamole! My oldest loves it too, but the other 3 hate avocado. I put avocado on lots of stuff. It's delicious.
