Peachy Keen Sweet Potatoes

A super nutritious & tasty recipe for babies from age 6 months and older.

Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato – peeled and diced
  • 2 ripe peaches – pitted and cubed
  • Water
  • pinch of cinnamon or ginger

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375F degrees
  • Combine sweet potato and peaches in a shallow baking dish and add just enough water to slightly cover the food. Sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon or ginger over the dish and stir, cover with foil.
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until peaches and sweet potatoes are fork tender – check on the water level often!
  • Once fully baked, reserve any remaining water and transfer sweet potatoes and peaches to a bowl to cool.
  • Puree or mash as needed for your baby’s texture preference.
  • May be frozen but some wateriness may occur upon thawing – try adding some plain whole milk yogurt to reconstitute!
