Avocado and Tuna Spread

This is the third of three sandwich fillers promised to the Baby Led Weaning Recipes’ Facebook fans. Easy and quick is the order of the day and there’s not much easier than this.

Both avocado and tuna are excellent, nutritious foods for your baby (and you). This spread can be frozen very effectively and you can even pre-prepare and freeze whole sandwiches for additional convenience.


  • 1 tin of tuna in springwater (thought to be best for keeping the healthy oils in the fish)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (optional, stops the avocado browning)
  • 1 or two tablespoons of chopped fresh herbs (optional, try chives, dill, parsley or coriander)


Mash the tuna and avocado together. Mix in the fresh herbs. Bob’s your uncle!
