Hi Parents,

Good day. Wanted to know more about the avacado and their benefits. Have a few questions:

1. Can this be given for a 2.3 year old or is it for the toddlers.

2. Heard that avacado is a cold fruit, so can this be given in the early mornings as a morning milk shake.

3. pls suggest some yumm recipes using avacados.

Hi Brill Adit

 Avocados have  more nutrition than any other fruit. Avocados are especially high in protein, fiber, niacin, thiamin, riboflavin, folic acid, and zinc. Avocados get the share of their calories from fat, and while these are the heart-healthy monounsaturated fats with no cholesterol. The high calorie content of avocados makes them a good food for growing children.Another healthy fat that avocados contain are Omega 3 fatty acids. Because avocados are so nutrient dense, they are included in top ten fruits list.

The top ten ranking of fruits is based upon their content of these nutrients: vitamin C, fiber, carotenoids, calcium, and folic acid.

 

  1. Avocado
  2. Papaya
  3. Guava
  4. Cantaloupe
  5. Orange
  6. Apricots (dried, unsulfured)
  7. Mango
  8. Strawberries (organic)
  9. Kiwi
  10. Grapefruit (pink or red)
