25 Delicious & Healthy Avocado Recipes That Kids Will Love
We all know the power of the mighty avocado. Packed with heart healthy monounsaturated fats and fibre, they even contain more potassium than bananas!
As adults we know that avocados can form a very healthy part of our diets but unfortunately kids don’t always feel the same. Children often struggle with the texture of avocado, “soft and slimy” is how my daughter describes it!
So if your family are not avocado fans but you’d like to include them more in their diet, here are 25 delicious and nutritious recipes to try, some sweet and some savoury all of which contain avocado.
