Homemade Baby Food: Sweet Potato


1 sweet potato
1/2 cup formula, breast milk or water


Preheat the oven to 410 degrees Farenheit.

Wash the sweet potato well under warm water. Poke it with a fork three or four times along the length of it, then run warm water over it again. The water that gets into the fork holes will help steam it from within.

Wrap it in tinfoil and place it on the lower rack of the oven to slow bake for 45 minutes.

Remove from the oven. If you are using a normal blender, scoop the potato with a tablespoon out of the skin and place it in your blender.

If you are using a ‘super blender’ like a Vitamix or a Blendtec you can simply quarter it and put the whole potato, skin and all, into the blender.

Add 1/2 cup formula, breast milk or water and blend until smooth.

Serve warm. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 or 3 days.
