Sweet potato is one of my favourite ingredients to use for baby led weaning. Versatile, filling and packed full of healthy nutrients – sweet potatoes are a fantastic alternative to starchy potatoes and can be used in a huge range of recipes.
From pancakes, to sweet potato fries to healthy veggie burgers, we try to incorporate sweet potato into baby’s diet at least once a week.
