Eggs contain many nutritive substances: proteins, calcium, vitamins and minerals. During the baby’s first year, after she is weaned, it is recommended that she eats only egg yolks, as egg whites may provoke allergies. If the eggs are boiled well, the yolk can be separated easily. The greenish layer around the egg yolk is only an indication that the egg has been boiled for too long, and it is not harmful to the baby at all.
Avocado is considered a miracle food. It is very rich in proteins, essential fatty acids, carotenoids and antioxidants (vitamins C and E); it contains 60% more potassium than banana, and it also contains lutein, which is important for the health of the eyes and the optimal development of babies’ vision. Here’s an easy to prepare, nutritious and tasty recipe for babies:
- 2 hard-boiled egg yolks
- 1 tablespoon yogurt
- 1/2 avocado
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Preparation: With a fork, crush the egg yolks thoroughly. Puree the avocado separately. Mix the two ingredients together adding the yogurt as well, until the mixture becomes creamy. If you prefer a finer paste, use a blender.
If the little one doesn’t finish the paste, you can keep it in the fridge for a day in a tightly closed container as long as it doesn’t come from the bowl the baby has eaten out of. It is recommended, though, that the paste is eaten fresh.
