Sweet potato is a perfect first baby food and it is great for toddlers too!
Sweet potatoes are one of our favorite “first foods” for baby. But once your baby reaches a year old into toddlerhood there is no reason to stop feeding her sweet potato! Make sweet potato fun to eat for her by preparing Mr & Ms Sweet Potato Heads! Sweet Potato heads are delicious, nutritious and super fun to make. It might look like mashed sweet potato alone but it is actually a delicious combination of sweet potato, yogurt, organic honey, and a bit of orange juice combined for the filling of decorated “potato heads.” Use “decorative touches”: olive eyes, carrot stick hair, and avocado mouth was used in this picture. Have fun creating your own. Full recipe below.
Mr/Ms Sweet Potato Heads Recipe from Super Baby Food
(remove the organic honey for baby under one)
Slice 2 cooked sweet potatoes in half. Scoop out flesh, being careful to keep skin intact to be used as a bowl later. Mash flesh and mix with:
2 tablespoons yogurt
1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
2 tablespoons orange juice
Replace mashed sweet potato mixture into reserved skin bowls. Use “Decorative Touches” to make eyes, nose, mouth, hair, etc.
