How to make sweet potatoes for your picky eater

Sweet potatoes are a super food, meaning that they are packed with nutrients. If you can get your kid to like them, you’ll have an easy veggie to turn to when times are tough — like when you can’t think of anything to make besides pasta. There’s a lot you can do with sweet potatoes, but since my kids were toddlers, we’ve served them in cubes. Here’s a little video to show you my method.

Would your kid eat this?

Today is “World Sweet Potato Day”, created to support ONE‘s efforts to increase awareness about world hunger. The sweet potato is the mascot for the cause and we’re trying to help make it famous! Sign the petition to request our leaders make measurable commitments to reduce malnutrition around the world.
