              Sweet Potato: Two-Potato Mash Recipes

Sweet Potato

This spud is one of the most nutritious (and inexpensive) vegetables around. The Vitamin A in sweet potatoes keeps eyes healthy, and acts like an antioxidant in the body. Sweet potatoes are a favorite among babies because of their natural sweetness and bright color, but they are often forgotten once kids get older. Try a baked sweet potato the next time you need a side dish. Simply wash, pierce with a fork, and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until tender. Then, serve like a baked potato topped with cinnamon-sugar and vanilla yogurt. Apple sauce or a drizzle of maple syrup also make good toppings. If you’ve got a mashed potato lover, then try Two-Potato Mash (pictured).

Only if they are roasted and he is in a good mood, he hates mashed anything though.

My kids won't eat sweet potatoes.  I think it's a color issue.  Our local veggie stand has white sweet potatoes so I bought those to see if I could trick them into eating them.....it worked.

I'm not a fan of sweet potatoes, but I'm sure my kids and husband would like these!

My son is not a fan of sweet potatoes. I never liked them when I was younger but they have grown on me.
