Parents consider adding sweet potatoes to their baby’s weaning diet. Sweet potatoes are rich in carbohydrates and also provide beta-carotene. They are rich in several nutrients needed for the baby’s healthy growth and development, such as calcium, potassium, vitamins A, B-complex, C, and fiber (1).

Sweet potatoes have a soft texture, and their naturally sweet flavor appeals to babies instantaneously. You can combine sweet potatoes with several vegetables, especially those the baby avoids or dislikes. The soft texture of the vegetable makes it easy to process it for baby food.

You must also select and store sweet potatoes properly to ensure healthy consumption for the baby. In this post, we answer all your queries about how to make sweet potato baby food, feed them to babies, and also provide some sweet potato baby food recipes.

When Can Babies Have Sweet Potato?

Most babies can safely consume well-cooked sweet potatoes as a lump-free puree or mash from six months of age (2). Boiling, baking, roasting, and stir-frying are some ways you can make sweet potato recipes for your baby.

You will also be introducing other vegetables into their diet as finger foods. Therefore, introduce one vegetable at a time to ensure the baby responds well to that particular vegetable. If the baby refuses to eat sweet potato, give it a break and reintroduce it after a week or two in a different format.

Sweet potatoes are high in carbohydrates and vitamins that are important for your baby’s growth. They also have other health benefits.

Health Benefits Of Sweet Potato for Babies

Sweet potato is a tuberous root vegetable consumed in various parts of the world. It is different from potato, but the two are distantly related, thus the similar-sounding names. Fundamentally, sweet potato and potato are unique with different nutritional values. Here are the major health benefits of sweet potatoes for your baby:

1. Vitamin A and beta-carotene

Sweet potato is an amazing baby food that comes packed with vitamin A which is needed for the healthy development of the eyes while it also has a lot of beta-carotene, a compound that synthesizes into Vitamin A in the body. Sweet potato thus has an incredible 14187 units of Vitamin A (3). That makes it a vegetable with one of the highest overall concentrations of Vitamin A making it an ideal solid food for your growing baby.

2. Starch and fiber

Sweet potato is a good source of starch and dietary fiber. Generally, half a cup of sweet potato (65g) can offer babies 8.2g of starch and 1.99g of fiber (4). The body breaks starch into sugars and uses it as energy. Dietary fiber helps digestion, adds bulk to the diet, and keeps gastric issues, such as constipation, at bay (5).

Research says
Dietary fibers from sweet potatoes have prebiotic properties that may promote intestinal health by modulating the gut microbiota (14).

3. Contains multivitamins

It is not just vitamin A but there are other several vitamins present in sweet potato viz. vitamin C, E, K, and vitamin B1 to B6 and B9 ( 4). Babies need a steady supply of these vitamins for the healthy development of various organs and in attaining their developmental milestones on time.

4. Presence of important minerals

Sweet potato is a source of nearly all essential minerals the body needs, namely calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, and zinc. Intake of nutrients, such as calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium, can contribute to developing and strengthening the baby’s bones. On the other hand, nutrients such as iron and vitamin B6 could help prevent anemia.

5. Contains bioactive compounds

Sweet potatoes contain several bioactive compounds that possess antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties (6). The combined effects of these nutritional and phytochemical compounds could contribute to strengthening a baby’s immune system.

Here is the nutritional chart that breaks down the quantity of these nutrients in 100 gm of sweet potato (4) (7).

How To Select And Store Sweet Potato?

Select: Choose sweet potatoes that have smooth and bright skin with little blemishes. The skin color should preferably be uniform across the vegetable. Do not buy those that have deep holes or cuts on them, as it could be home to worms. Sweet potatoes can be prone to decay due to improper storage. Therefore, check for any sign of discoloration or liquid oozing out of it. Also, buy these vegetables from a trustworthy market to avoid purchasing ones, which are contaminated with pesticides.

Storage: There is no need to store sweet potatoes in the refrigerator. You can store them at room temperature. You must consume them within a week. If you intend to store them for longer, then you can keep them in a cool, dark, and dry place (such as a cellar) where the temperature is around 15ºC. However, do not store them for more than a month.

How To Cook Sweet Potatoes For Babies?

Sweet potatoes can be cooked in a variety of ways from baking to barbecue. Remember to always peel off its skin since it is rich in fiber, which is hard for a baby to digest. You can peel the skin after the sweet potato has been cooked or later as we see in the following ways of cooking sweet potatoes:

  • Baking: Baking makes the sweet potatoes soft and palatable without making them soggy. Just preheat the oven to a temperature of 200ºC. Poke holes into the sweet potatoes and bake them in the oven for 45 minutes or till they reach the desired softness. Once done, just cut them into two halves and scoop the pulp out, which you can then mash or puree.
  • Boiling: The easy way. Simply peel the sweet potatoes, toss them into a pressure cooker and cook for up to three or four whistles. You can also chop the sweet potatoes into small pieces before putting them in the cooker. Reuse the stock water while making the sweet potato puree or mash.
  • Steaming: Steaming brings a unique tenderness to the sweet vegetable. Peel the sweet potato, slice it in half, place them in shallow water in a frying pan and steam them on medium flame for 20-25 minutes or till desired tenderness is achieved. You can even use a steaming rack to get that classic steamed vegetable taste and look.
  • Barbecue: Where there is a party, there is a barbecue! When it comes to your baby’s party food, you can give him some roasted sweet potatoes. Use the barbecue grill to roast sweet potatoes wrapped in aluminum foil for 45 minutes on the coal. This will give you results similar to baking with a unique taste that your baby will love.

Now that you know how to cook sweet potato let’s see the various baby food preparations you can make with the sweet potato.

How To Cut Sweet Potatoes For Babies?

Most babies aged six months and older can eat well-cooked sweet potato mash or puree. Alternatively, you can cut the peeled and cooked sweet potatoes in age-appropriate ways and serve them to babies practicing self-feeding.

For six-month-old babies, cut a peeled and well-cooked sweet potato into two-inch thick slices and serve to the baby. If you feel the pieces are too soft to hold on to, you can mash them with a fork and serve the mash/puree to your baby for self-feeding using a spoon.

For babies aged nine months and above, you can cut bite-sized (well-cooked) sweet potato pieces and serve them to babies. However, before doing this, observe your baby’s pincer grasp development and their comfort in holding and self-consume smaller pieces of sweet potato.

For babies between 12 and 24 months, they can continue consuming sweet potatoes in various forms using their hands and utensils, such as forks and spoons. You can add sweet potatoes to other foods, such as veggies, to make delectable finger foods for your munchkin.

Sweet Potato Food Combinations For Babies

Some foods can taste great when in combination with sweet potato. Take the advantage of its sweetness and combine these foods to make them more palatable to your little one.

Can A Baby Be Allergic To Sweet Potato?

Just like any other food, a baby may be allergic to sweet potatoes, too (9). However, the chances are fewer than in other vegetables such as carrot and spinach (which are also good sources of beta-carotene). Therefore, always be on the lookout for the following symptoms after giving your baby sweet potato for the first time. These symptoms may appear minutes to hours after the consumption of a food allergen:

  • Skin hives: Small reddish bumps on the skin quite often seen in clusters
  • Shortness of breath: There will be a general feeling of breathlessness, and the baby may wheeze and gasp for air.
  • Swelling of mouth: Lips and tongue will appear swollen along with swelling in neck muscles that may cause severe discomfort during swallowing.
  • General weakness and dizziness: The baby will appear dizzy and may suddenly seem fatigued and weak as an effect of the food allergy.
Point to consider
Sweet potatoes are known to trigger food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES). FPIES is a delayed gut allergic response that causes intestinal inflammation (15).

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Are sweet potatoes a choking hazard for babies?

Well-cooked sweet potatoes aren’t usually a choking hazard. However, it may pose a choking risk if the baby is served sweet potato puree/mash with lumps or undercooked bite-sized pieces. Ensure that the sweet potato is well-cooked and soft before serving it to the baby.

2. Do sweet potatoes constipate babies?

Sweet potato is a fibrous vegetable and helps relieve constipation. However, excess fiber intake may have opposite effects since it may increase the chances of constipation. Add small quantities of sweet potatoes to a baby’s meal rather than adding too much of it at once (10).

3. Does sweet potato make babies gain weight?

Sweet potatoes are a rich source of starch (carbohydrate) and other nutrients that may contribute to a baby’s weight gain. You may add sweet potatoes to your baby’s diet in moderation to meet their energy and nutritional needs. Ask the pediatrician or dietitian to incorporate sweet potatoes into your baby’s diet depending on their energy (calorie) needs (11).

4. Are sweet potatoes easy for babies to digest?

Sweet potatoes are rich in fiber, and fibers are not digested by the digestive tract (12). Fibers could prevent constipation if taken in required amounts. Giving sweet potatoes in larger quantities may cause digestive problems in babies since their digestive system is still developing.

5. Do sweet potatoes give babies gas?

Most starches, including sweet potatoes, can make gas when digested in the intestines. You may give sweet potatoes in small quantities to avoid bloating in babies (12).

6. Can I microwave sweet potatoes for my baby?

You can safely microwave sweet potatoes. You may prick the potatoes, add ¼ cup of water, cover the tray, and microwave for three minutes. Turn the potato on the other side, cover, and microwave for three to six minutes. Cool down and peel the potatoes to prepare puree or mashed potatoes. Add a few spoons of water to make it smoother and less sticky (13).

Incorporate sweet potatoes for babies as a part of their weaning diet. This vitamin and carbohydrate-rich veggie could offer many health benefits and enhance the nutritional value when included in your baby’s routine diet. You may store them for a long time and add them in mashed forms along with other vegetables to prepare yummy purees or soups as per your baby’s taste preferences. However, be careful about any allergies or reactions and take your baby to a pediatrician if they have any discomfort after consuming sweet potatoes.
