In the meantime, peel the apple, halve, and remove the seeds. Grate directly onto the sweet potato. Mix the sweet potato, apple and pumpkin pie spice until combined. If you prefer a smoother, not-so dense consistency add formula or breast milk,1 tablespoon at a time, until you get the desired consistency.

  • I would make this for myself if I could find the sweet potato here 😀 I love, love, love sweet potatoes and anything you make from them.

    Hi there. I just stumbled across your blog. I haven’t seen many posting healthy recipes for the little one. I’m glad others are writing about it, I’m hoping it will inspire more to make fresh meals for their babies.

    • Thanks so much Jordan! We try to follow a healthy, balanced diet so I think it’s important for our children to as well! My motto is: the kids eat whatever we eat (minus some ingredients of course!) I LOVE cooking so it’s only natural for me to want to prepare everything fresh for my kids. Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you back! I appreciate the feedback 😉
