Many kids resist eating fruits and vegetables, but avocado is a fruit kids more willingly eat, especially when you prepare it in an appealing way. For example, you can create a quick, yummy mousse using mashed avocado, cocoa powder and sweetener such as stevia or honey. Serving avocados to kids offers numerous advantages, as they provide abundant vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients.

Fat and Fiber

Avocados are rich in healthy fats, which are essential for growing kids. According to the USDA, avocados contain 7.153 grams of monounsaturated fat per 1/2-cup serving. Fiber is another critical nutrient that kids obtain when they eat avocados. A serving of 1/2 cup contains 4.9 grams of fiber. This is 19.6 percent of the daily value or DV, according to the Office of Dietary Supplements. Fiber helps to keep the digestive system moving, which is a benefit for kids who are prone to constipation.

Potent cholesterol-lowering and antioxidant properties.

A researcher at Saudi Arabia’s King Saud University College of Pharmacy conducted an animal study to evaluate the efficacy of avocado fruit pulp in lowering LDL levels, a treatment modality used widely in African folk medicine. In an article published in the “African Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology,” the researcher reported that his study confirms avocado’s effectiveness in lowering bad cholesterol. He said that phytochemicals in avocado demonstrate potent cholesterol-lowering and antioxidant properties.

In partnership with our organic farming partners in Peru, we hand-select the finest cacao beans fresh out of the tropical cacao fruit. The beans are washed with purified water, partially fermented to remove bitterness and are then ready for low temperature processing. We gently roll our crumbled beans into our Navitas Naturals Cacao Paste and organic cane juice for a rich and lightly sweet flavor that’s pure chocolatey goodness.
