I’m going to share some of “Dr. Jen’s Sassy Foods” on this blog. This means:
Adaptable – for baby (over 6 months!) & parent(s)
I suggest waiting until six months to start solid foods in small babies or between 4-6 only if your pediatrician has given the thumbs up.
I made horrible sweet potatoes when I first got married. Hard, wet, yick!
My mother-in-law, Nana Jane, taught me her magic trick:
- Wash potatoes with light brush.
- Poke with fork all over the potato.
- Bake on a pan at 375 degrees for 1 hour (no tinfoil, no oil, just plain).
- Once soft and squishy, you have the perfect sweet potato!
For mom & dad: Add a little salt & pepper, or make it even sassier with some maple syrup or low-fat Greek yogurt!
