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!
