My baby started eating sweet potatoes when she was about 4-5 months old. We started out eating it puréed & of course we used our Baby Bullet! ? Sweet potatoes are a very cost efficient meal as well. I typically buy 2 large sweet potatoes from Kroger, they cost me like $.99 a piece at the most! I like to season the majority of my baby’s food so she has a little extra flavor & in this case, I use cinnamon. If you buy the Kroger brand your spending less than $2 and the container will last you for awhile, ? Always a bonus!
Now, wash and peel your sweet potatoes and cut them into small chunks. Boil the potatoes until tender and mashable. Once your potatoes are tender, go ahead and drain the water and put portions into your blending container. Go ahead and grab your cinnamon and sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon inside. Hook your Baby Bullet up and blend to your desired consistency. And you’re finished ? I told ya SUPER EASY right?!! Storage is a breeze too, you just dip out portions into your freezer containers and freeze! That simple!! And once your babes gets older, like 8 months or so you can just skip the blending part altogether. So it all got even simpler ?
The Health Benefits
Sweet potatoes are a great source of Vitmain A, B and C. They also provide magnesium, potassium and sources of necessary dietary fiber!
I must warn that these tasty taters are also a little messy so strip your babes down before you feed. My little girl likes to smash her sweet potatoe chunks between her fingers before she shoves them in her mouth, so needless to say this is a meal that requires a bath to follow! Please comment and share if any of your babies have tried sweet potatoes before ? If so, how have they liked them?
