All you really need are naturally-delicious and nutritious avocados, along with a bit of salt to bring out their yummy flavors. Also, you have the option to add a bit of lime juice for flavor and to keep your guac from browning.

How to Make Guacamole Kid Friendly
By design, guacamole is a kid friendly food because it’s a dip! Seriously, there’s research to back this—tasty dips encourage kids (especially picky eaters) to try new foods. And, if you serve this 2 ingredient guacamole with some raw vegetable dippers, it might just do the trick!
Of course, there are tons of deliciously different approaches you can take in making guacamole. But, keeping this 2 ingredient guacamole recipe mild is key to keeping it kid friendly. You only need a bit of salt, but it really does wonders to bring out the natural nuttiness in the avocados!
Cilantro is another common guacamole add-in, but I recommend skipping it if you’re feeding a picky eater. Actually, even among adults, the taste of cilantro can vary greatly from person to person. For some, it tastes like soap due to a genetic difference in taste buds!
But, even without tons of spices, this 2 ingredient guacamole still tastes like a darn delicious guacamole. Better yet, one that kids will eat! And, fewer ingredients makes for easier prep. Win-win! Of course, feel free to jazz up this recipe however you like and make it your own.
