Egg Yolk and Avocado Baby Food Puree

Egg yolk and avocado sound weird for a baby puree, right?

That’s what I thought as well. So glad we are on the same page.

When Elliette was little I did lots of research on what the best first foods for babies where and I found that one popular belief among natural food nutritionists is that egg yolks are supreme to any other foods.

Benefits of Egg Yolks for Baby:

Egg yolks are filled with choline, cholesterol and other brain-nourishing substances that are vital for the insulation of the nerves in the brain and entire central nervous system. Since the brain is so dependent on cholesterol, it is especially vital during this time when the brain growth is in hyper-speed (read more about the benefits of egg yolks here).

There is a wooden plate with a cut open avocado, a teal egg holder with 3 brown eggs and 3 bowls in front - 1 bowl is filled with avocado, 1 bowl is filled with hard boiled eggs and the other bowl is filled with egg shells.

Benefits of Avocados for Baby:

Avocados, are quite possibly the best food in the world and contain everything a person needs to survive off of (yes, you can repeat that sentence to yourself while you indulge in your third avocado toast of the week;). Besides having a creamy texture that lends itself perfectly to baby purees, they are full of essential monounsaturated fats which babies need in their daily diet to help with proper brain growth.

Egg yolks and avocados might just be the powerhouse of baby purees.
