Avocado-Banana Baby Food

The potassium-rich banana provides a creamy base for myriad recipes, including this puree that Cooking Channel star Kelsey Nixon began whipping up for her son, Oliver (now 2 years old), when he started solids. Because Ollie was premature, I spent a lot of time trying to help him gain weight. I liked offering him avocado and yogurt, particularly for the good fat and calories. Ages 6 months and up
