This yummy sweet potato and apple mash was, by far, one of my kids’ favourite first foods. The combination of creamy sweet potato with the hint of earthy pumpkin pie spice makes for a delicate-tasting, nutrient-dense puree to offer baby from six months and older. The addition of raw, grated apple gives the rich flavour of the sweet potato a burst of freshness and cuts through the richness of the dish.
Since this recipe is full of traditional fall flavours, it would be the perfect accompaniment to baby’s Thanksgiving meal. Sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber, B6, and potassium, and have a low glycemic index, while apples are packed with fiber and vitamin C.
