My son is 4 and is currently on a feeding tube. We are in search of some high calorie puree's for him to take by mouth hoping to get rid of the feeding tube soon! I discovered that Avocado's have a natural source of high calories and are good for him. I chose to mix it with banana because the textures are about the same and because my son prefers sweet flavors over any others.
