Baby Food Sweet Potato Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 Large Sweet Potatoes
  • Baking Sheet
  • Foil
  • Food Processor
  • Water


Baby Food Sweet Potato Recipe Directions:

Start by pre-heating your oven to 400. Wash the sweet potatoes and then poke with a fork. Next, wrap each sweet potato individually in foil and bake for 45 – 60 minutes. You can test them by poking with a fork or knife to feel how soft they are to determine if they are cooked thoroughly.

Let cool. Peel off the skin and then cut the sweet potato into smaller chunks so that it will fit into your food processor or blender. I always add about 1/2 cup of water so that I get the right consistency. Depending on the age of your child you will need to make sure the baby food sweet potato recipe is not too thick.

  1. Hi Addi! I have a general question for you. I made sweet potatoes like above and they were awesome for my baby. But I used separate sandwich bags to store a few ounces at a time and put them all into a big freezer storage bag. In the end the top ones worked great but the ones in the middle and bottom of the bag froze together and made it almost impossible to separate. I prefer to continue separating this way. Do you have any advise for getting them not to freeze together? Thank you,

    1. Separate the bags with wax paper so they won’t stick together. Or you could freeze the food in ice cube trays and then put the cubes into baggies and sort by food type.

  2. I normally go freeZe mine in ice cub tray and cover it with Saran Wrap for a few mins and the put them into baby freezer bags . This way they never stick and it’s easy to get out later .
