Serves 2-3 | Prep Time 5 | Cook Time 0


1 whole, ripe avocado
1 baby mesh feeder
1 large, sharp knife
1 tablespoon

Cut the avocado lengthwise around the seed.

Open the two halves and remove the pit.

Either scoop out with a spoon, or slice the avocado into segments.

Put a tablespoon size serving in your mesh teether and give to baby.

OPTIONAL: If you're not using a mesh feeder and want to spoon feed, add a little breast milk or formula to get a consistency you're comfortable with.
