Bradley absolutely LOVED these. See for yourself :) I promise he actually got some in his mouth, too! I keep a batch in the freezer since he likes them so much. That way just in case he tries something he doesn't favor, we have a quick back-up. It's super handy, so I highly recommend doing it yourself.Printable Recipe
- 2 large sweet potatoes
- 1/2 cup purified water
There are three different ways to cook the sweet potatoes:
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Prick sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 50 minutes or until fork tender. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. Remove skin.
- Peel sweet potatoes and cut into bite-size pieces. Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water. Heat to boiling and continue cooking for 20 minutes or until fork tender.
- Prick potatoes all over with a fork. Wrap with a paper towel and place on a microwave-safe dish. Microwave for 6-7 minutes, turning over halfway through. Continue cooking, 1 minute at a time, until fork tender. Remove from microwave and allow to cool slightly. Remove skin.
Allow to cool then serve to your baby with a spoon. I recommend adding some breast milk or formula to the pureed potatoes as well...this thins out the potatoes and adds a flavor they already know and enjoy.
If saving for a later date, pour it into storage cups to freeze or refrigerate. You can refrigerate up to 3 days or freeze for 30 days. Make sure you label your potatoes! Once you are ready to serve, heat the refrigerated or frozen potatoes up in the microwave and allow to cool to just warmer than room temperature. Add breast milk or formula to thin it out.
*Consult your pediatrician before feeding your baby solid foods and to see what amount/type of food you should give your child.
