Pull out the veggie sticks and crackers! They will make the perfect vehicle for this fun, nutrient loaded (and very kid friendly!) mango guacamole!
it is packed with friendly fats their brains need to thrive and grow.
Avocados are known for being rich in energy giving monounsaturated fat which also feeds and nourishes the brain.
My girls eat it by the spoonful, and like to dip all sorts of veggie sticks, tortilla chips, or crackers in it too for lunch.
Sometimes guacamole can be a bit much for kids to palate so backing off on some of the “kick” from the heat and pungent flavors can be helpful with their taste buds
Here’s to taco night!
