Freeze a banana over night and then offer as a snack, its important to let them chew as much as possible so their teeth can break through their gums.

Avacados are high in healthy monounsaturated fats, recent studies have linked avocados with an increased absorption of healthful carotenoid antioxidants, lycopene, and beta-carotene, making avocados the perfect food to blend with vegetables like carrots, squash, or spinach to increase the uptake of nutrients. Babies as young as 6 months can be fed avocado.
Packed with antioxidants and phytoflavinoids, these berries are also high in potassium and vitamin C, making them the top choice of doctors and nutritionists. Not only can they lower your risk of heart disease and cancer, they are also anti-inflammatory.
