Avocados have a smooth and creamy texture which is rich in unsaturated (or good) fats. They contain lots of fibre and are rich in vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B, vitamin K, potassium, copper, vitamin E and vitamin C.
Passion fruit has a significant number of antioxidants, which enhance the body’s immune system. It also has a high content of vitamins A and C plus many health benefits. However, due to it’s acidity, passion fruit is not suitable for babies under 12 months.
Honey is not recommended for infants under 12 months of age as it contains a bacteria which can cause Infant Botulism. But as a natural sweetener it is perfect to give to older kids.
Best for kids over 12 months!
