Sweet Potato Baby Food Recipe

Submitted by Pregnancy and Baby Care team on November 19, 2019

If you're making sweet potatoes for your Thanksgiving crowd, set one aside for this simple recipe for a smooth puree for babies as young as 6 months:

Peel, rinse, and cut sweet potato into 1/4-inch slices, then cover slices with water and bring pot to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and blend in a food processor until smooth, adding water as needed, then finish with a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg (not both) if your baby has been eating solids for a while.

    1. Fill a small saucepan with water; add sweet potatoes.

      Bring water to a boil and cook sweet potatoes until tender enough to break apart with a fork, 25 to 30 minutes.

    2. Transfer sweet potatoes to a food processor or an immersion blender cup, reserving the cooking water. Blend sweet potatoes until smooth. Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup cooking water and blend until desired consistency is reached.
