Finger food

perfect for dipping veggie sticks in!

Chunks of avocado can be very slippery to hold onto, so to make it easier try mashing them up with some peas!

    • 30 g/1 oz frozen petits pois
    • ½ small avocado, stoned
    • 1 teaspoon lime or lemon juice
    • 3 tablespoons baby’s usual milk
    • A few coriander leaves, finely chopped (optional)
    • 1 soft wholemeal tortilla cut into fingers, to serve
    • Steamed vegetable sticks, to serve


    1. Steam or boil the petits pois in a small saucepan over a medium heat for 3–4 minutes until tender. Drain, if necessary, + tip into a bowl.
    2. Scoop out the avocado flesh into the bowl + pour in the citrus juice + milk. Using the back of a fork, mash together until almost smooth. Alternatively, purée using a hand blender. To make the purée smoother, pass it through a sieve after blending.
    3. Stir in the coriander (if using). Serve with the tortilla + vegetable sticks.
