Sweet potato puree is the first solid food I made for Baby G. I remember the first time he tasted the sweet potato puree, he finished the few tiny spoonful right away. He wanted more. He was eating sweet potato puree almost every meal, and then I slowly introduced him to other food. As a first-time mom, it is very important to slowly introducing new ingredients to your baby, as it will let you know if your baby is allergic to a certain food.

Anyway, Baby G still loves his sweet potato puree as a snack (I feed him rice porridge for his lunch and dinner now, recipes coming soon). Even though you can buy Gerber sweet potato puree at the stores, let me assure you that the time you take to make it is probably shorter than the time you get to the stores. I made this serving for sweet potato puree in practically 20 minutes, just in time to feed the hungry Baby G for his afternoon snack. Most importantly, making your own baby food is your way of showering your baby with love, and I am sure your baby will reward you with a big smile after his feeding. Try this sweet potato puree recipe, have fun!

  1. Oooh, I’m loving this new part of your site. I’ve been wanting to make my own baby food, whenever we finally have kids! I’ll have to share this with my friends and family who have little ones.

    Can I refrigerate puree? How many days will it last to ensure freshness? I don’t like the idea of freezing veggie/fruit puree. Thanks.

    Actually, in the US, yam and sweet potato are different.

    • I am confused about this because different markets labeled differently. In my market, sweet potato = yam, orange color. But other place, sweet potato is pale yellow in color. Yam (pale purple color) is actually taro outside of the US.

    Yeay I have a Tiger(tigress) baby too! your boy is so adorable!! I agree with you, sweet potato is a very delicious baby food, I introduced sweet potato puree 2 weeks after the introductory baby cereal. And my baby also loves it until today. I buy the varieties of deep purple potato, orange potato (like yours), and later on Japanese potatoes. She at first loved the purple one more, but when I start giving the Japanese potatoes, it became her favorite now. It’s slightly expensive, but like you, seeing her downing the food without any fuss, even trying to hurrying you up, is priceless!

    My son is 11 mths n still loves his baked sweet potatoes. The way I’ve done it is to prick it with a fork, rub it all over with evoo (olive oil) n bake it @ 350 for 30 mins. After it’s been mashed with a fork, it gets scooped into a cube container n frozen til it’s needed.
