I have been giving my daughter avocado for a few days now, and it is still fresh!

How to pick an avocado: A ripe avocado has a dark green color. When you press on it, you want it to have a little give, but you do not want it to be squishy. (An avocado is similar to a banana with how it ripens.)

When to introduce more foods: Offer one new food to your child every 4-7 days. This is to ensure there is no negative reaction to the food. And yes, it can take four days to know if a food will irritate your little one.

Any guesses what food I will give her next?
