Kiwi fruit is a great way to get vitamins C and E into your baby's diet. You can tell a kiwi's ripe when it's plump and soft, but not overly mushy. Kiwi sweetens a bit after a while, so if your first kiwi seems too sour for your baby, let another one ripen an extra day or two before serving.
1 ripe avocado
1 ripe kiwi fruit
Cut a slice of avocado about 1 inch thick. Scoop fruit from skin.
Cut the kiwi in half and set aside half for a later meal. Using a spoon, scoop the fruit out of the shell. Cut off the central core and seeds, if desired (though these can be eaten). Put on a plate with the avocado.
Mash together with a fork until smooth. If needed, add a little breast-milk or formula for a creamier texture 4. If the mixture is not smooth enough for your baby, purée in a food processor or blender until completely puréed.
Instead of Avocado
Kiwi goes well with many fruits. Try cooking a peeled, cored apple for about 10 minutes, then puréeing with a peeled, seeded kiwi. For babies who like textures, fork-mash a banana and kiwi together, adding breastmilk or formula to make a creamy, fruity meal.
