Piper + Avocados

Let me tell you -- Piper is not a huge fan of avocados. I can't blame her, they are more delicious when turned into guacamole. She'll see some day!

Piper's first bites of avocados seemed promising; I thought she loved them and I was excited. You can see how excited she seemed by watching this video:

However, after about halfway through feeding, I think she realized the taste wasn't getting any better {my little optimist} and so she showed her true feelings on the taste.

Avocado is the first food that she didn't "love", but she still accepted it, and that made me happy. Needless to say, avocados is last on the list for foods to feed her. I'm not going to force it. Maybe they will meet some day again, but for now, she'll enjoy her favorite green beans instead.


  1. They say it can take up to 10 tries before a child decides if they like a food or not. My daughter hated avocado at first too, but after giving them to her a few times (I'd say 3 or 4), she finally started liking them. She's now 2 and avocados are one of her favorite foods! Keep trying, she may surprise you.

    1. That's good to hear!! Right now, I am more or less introducing foods to make sure there are no sensitives, giving a few days in between each new food. I think we'll definitely start working on feeding her more of her not-so-favorites after that! :)
