Who else loves pudding!
Wouldn't it be great if you could prepare a homemade breakfast pudding that contains vegetables and is delicious and nutritious? Well, with a sweet and starchy vegetable like sweet potato this is easy!
The sweet taste and starchy texture of a vegetable is crucial to provide the pudding-like consistency and delicious taste. And to provide just the right balance of taste it is best paired with a neutral fruit such as apples and a light sweet-sour-y fruits like peaches.
The sweet potato is a great source of vitamin A and beta carotene which is great for skin health and vision. They also contain a significant amount of fiber which helps the digestive system to perform its function.
Apples are one of the most abundant fruits and often one of the first foods introduced to babies. Like the sweet potato, apples are also a source of fiber but their main power lies in the ability to benefit the cardiovascular system.
Peaches are also a great fruit to choose if you want to ensure that the digestive system is doing its work. They are also filled with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, especially vitamins C and A.
The Sweet Potato Fruit Pudding is a great start to the day because of its fruit and vegetable combination. It makes a great puree but if you are strictly following the baby-led weaning method then we suggest cutting the fruits and sweet potato into long sticks before serving.
