A lifetime of good eating habits and good health can be established early in childhood. Rich, creamy avocados are a kid-friendly fruit in many ways: They provide great taste, fun texture and they contribute valuable nutrients including:
- 8% of the recommended Daily Value (DV) for folate
- 4% DV for fiber and potassium
- 4% DV for vitamin E and more
