Does anyone else give their lo's avocado? If so, how to you keep the leftovers from turning brown? Is it okay to eat if it turns brown? Thanks~

my dd has eaten avacado since about 8 months. If you leave the pit in the half you are not going to use and put it in the refigerator like that it helps keep it from turning brown. Also mixing lime juice with it helps keep it from turning brown. It is ok to eat brown if it has just turned brown, but if you cut one that is already brown inside i'd stay away from it.

how to you serve it, just mash it up or add something to it. i have never bought an avocado because i don't care for them.. but i would give it to my little one

I just mash it with a fork, and mix it with mashed banana (that's her fav!) or I sometimes mix it into her cereal. Thanks for the tip about leaving the pit in Olivia.....yes, I should have clarified that I meant when it turns brown after being exposed to the air.

You can minimize the brown color by wrapping saran wrap right up againt it. Even with homemade guacamole I do that - put the saran wrap not on the bowl edge, but against the top of the guacamole. My son loved avocado and banana too. I used to freeze that mixture into ice cube trays for him, but yes - the very top of the ice cube would get brown.

I buy them on sale - usually 5 at a time - mash them and freeze them in ice cube trays then transfer to a zip top freezer bag. I haven't had any browning of my frozen pucks.

Do you just mash the avocado and put them in the ice cube trays as-is? DO you add any water or anything?

I put the avocado and banana in the food processor, pureed it up, and then poured into silicone ice cube trays. I put saran wrap over the top to freeze to help minimize browning. I would really recommend the silicone trays because it is so easy to get the cubes out. I have broken plastic trays in half trying to get some of the thicker purees I have made out.

I add water to mine. I make it a little looser than I would normally make it since it seems to loose a little moisture in the freezer. So far I haven't broken an ice cube tray, but I could see where that could happen. I am using Martha Stewart ice cube trays. Maybe that's why I haven't broken one yet.

When you start using mashed potatoes in the baby food - that's when the ice cube trays crack! LOL.
