Under 6 months of age, give only breastmilk (or formula).

Over 6 months, when you start solids, avocado is a good high fat food to offer.

A lot of the other foods with healthy fats (fish, eggs, nuts) are typically offered later because of allergies or choking risks.

not sure what you are asking but I would say to stay away from fatty foods for an infant unless you were given instruction by the doctor to introduce this time of food. this is a tough one to grasp because i'm not sure of the age of the infant. for me the bottom line would be to check with the pediatrician before introducing new food groups.
