Three Ways With Sweet Potato
Are you ready to add a little pizzazz to your baby's mealtime adventures? Sweet potatoes are here to save the day! Not only are they packed with essential nutrients, but they're also incredibly versatile and perfect for baby-led weaning.
Let's discover three delightful ways to serve sweet potato that will have your little one's taste buds dancing with joy!Mashed Sweet Potato:
Get ready for some creamy, dreamy goodness that will make your baby's taste buds sing! Start by peeling and cutting a sweet potato into small chunks. Now, it's time to either boil or steam those sweet potato chunks until they're tender. Once they've reached the squish test, grab a trusty fork or a potato masher and get your mash on! Mash that sweet potato until it's smooth and velvety. You can keep it pure and simple or take it up a notch by mixing in some breast/formula milk. Serve this magnificent mashed sweet potato as a puree or as a finger food that your baby can scoop up. (We can't guarantee they will be a fan at first taste though!)
Roasted Sweet Potato Fingers:
Preheat your oven to a toasty 400°F. Peel and slice a sweet potato into finger-sized pieces, and spread them out on a baking sheet. Pop them into the oven and let them roast for around 20-25 minutes or until they're perfectly tender. Voila! You now have irresistible roasted sweet potato fingers that are soft enough for your little one to grab and munch on.
Sweet Potato Wedges:
Grab a sweet potato and cut it into wedges, about half an inch thick. Boil the wedges for 5-7 minutes until they're slightly softened but still hold their shape. Drain them and pop those wedges in the oven at the trusty 400°F for another 20-25 minutes or until they're perfectly tender. These scrumptious sweet potato wedges can be served as finger food with the skin on.
There you have it, fellow parents on the weaning journey—three marvelous ways to introduce the sweet potato to your little one's taste adventure. So, go ahead and let your baby explore the world of sweet potatoes with joy and excitement.
Happy weaning and bon appétit!
