With its lovely flavour the sweet potato is packed full of Vitamins A and C which are crucial for growth and development and important to keep our immune systems and cells healthy. Vitamin C also helps wounds heal and helps the body to absorb iron from plant sources.
When to give to your baby
Sweet potato makes a good choice for one of baby’s first mouthfuls. It’s gentle on your little ones tummy and is full of goodness. We recommend to start weaning at around 6 months, however every baby is different so follow your instinct or consult your health visitor if you are not sure.
