When all else fails, I go to the sweet potato because Kula Baby always loves them. This is a great recipe for the young babies out there. For older children, this recipe makes a great side dish. Spinach adds the green, while avocado adds a healthy omega-6 fat. And the sweet potato makes it super…duper…yummy. You can change this recipe up to meet your own child’s preference. Lately we’ve been leaving out the avocado and mixing in a little coconut oil or olive oil instead. Get creative!
