Sweet Potato Puree - 4 months plus

Author: Brea   Date Posted:8 May 2016 

Xavier is now 24 weeks old and has shown a lot of interest in food.  He has been sucking on slices of pear and apple which is soothing for his gums.  Sweet potato is one of the first puree's I made for the twins.  I believe that Roasting the Sweet Potato gives it a really meaty flavour and I cannot lie - I enjoy eating the caramelised skin.

Ingredients:  

  • 500g of sweet potato, scrubbed with skins on

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 200 C
  • Prick the potatoes and place on baking tray
  • Roast for approximately 40 mins
  • Let them cool slightly before cutting sweet potato in half and scooping out the flesh.
  • Puree in food processor to desired consistency.

Note:  You can use breast milk or formula to thin out as required.  Add this as required on feeding rather than in bulk.  Freezer friendly.

Tip - Freeze any leftovers for another day.
