When to give to your baby
Sweet potatoes make a good choice for one of baby’s first mouthfuls'. Its 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.
How to select them and how to store them for your baby
Wherever possible we like to use organic sweet potatoes, which means that they have not been sprayed or treated with any nasties. We understand that this is not always possible so make sure you select the best ones available at the time. Try to pick ones that are firm, without any bruises or soft brown spots.
