Who doesn’t like French fries?  You are right, No one!  Everyone loves French Fries.  Here’s a quick but deliciously simple recipe for French fries that whole family will adore.  You can find more recipes at our website at by clicking on the link and of course my book, Super Baby Food.

Don’t deep fry potatoes in all that oil–bake them for your toddler instead!

Cut up 2 or 3 potatoes into quarters, eighths, or French fry shapes. You can peel them if you wish, but remember that the peels have lots of nutrients.

Put the cut-up potatoes in a bowl and toss them with melted butter. Use only about 1 teaspoon of melted butter for each potato. (Or save washing a big bowl and brush them with melted butter instead.)

Spread potatoes on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake in pre-heated 400 oven for 20 minutes or until browned.

Variations: Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese and/or parsley on those fries before they go into the oven–delicious! Or use sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes for an extra jolt of vitamin A.
