To Make No Cook Baby Food: Tuna, Melon and Avocado Salad, You Will Need…
1 tbsp canned tuna (please see this post for more information)
1 small slice of melon, peeled (we prefer to use watermelon in salads!)
1/2 small avocado, peeled and stoned
1 to 2 tbsp natural yogurt
For younger babies (6 months+) not yet enjoying texture:
Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Add enough natural yogurt to give you the texture you desire.
For older babies enjoying a little texture:
Puree the melon.
Mash the avocado with the natural yogurt and stir in the pureed melon and tuna.
