High-fat non-dairy foods for babies & toddlers:
- Avocados – you can even mash them up with some olive oil or soy milk for more protein/fat.
- Olive oil & flax seed oil mixed with/drizzled on food (don’t cook the flax seed oil, add it to ready-to-eat foods).
- Sunflower butter is an alternative to nut butters if your little one isn’t doing nuts yet – still high in fat & tastes similar to peanut butter. You can also chop up sunflower seeds and add them to their foods.
- Winter squash
- Kidney beans – other beans are good as well, also for iron and protein. My little guy eats a lot of beans, especially black bean soup and bean burritos.
