Homemade Baby Food: Sweet Potato Puree

Homemade Baby Food: Sweet Potato Puree

Sweet potato puree was Judah’s first vegetable, and as most babies, he loves it.  I’ll either serve him the sweet potato alone, or mix it with chicken, peas, broccoli or rice.  When I introduced broccoli, it was too strong of a taste for him so I mixed it with the sweet potato and he was good to go!

It only takes a couple of sweet potatoes to make quite a few servings.  I’ve only pureed three potatoes at a time, and it will last us weeks.  Additionally, you may use a food processor or blender, but I find it easiest to use a hand mixer for this puree.

Place potatoes on the foil-lined baking sheet and bake for 45 – 60 minutes, or until soft inside.  When cool enough to handle, peel the potatoes (skin should remove easily).
