Baby Food | Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes

Cinnamon Sweet Potato Puree | Baby Food Basics


This is a great first food for your baby when they’re ready to start eating solids.


  • Organic sweet potatoes, washed and scrubbed (see note below)
  • Cinnamon
  • water, to adjust consistency if needed
  • Olive oil


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet lined with foil, parchment, or a silicone baking mat. Drizzle each potato lightly with olive oil. Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the thickest part of each potato slides in easily with no resistance.
  3. Let them cool for an hour at room temperature.
  4. Cut each potato open and scoop out the flesh into a bowl. Add a good pinch of cinnamon, and whisk to break up the potatoes. If you have a high-powered blender, puree the potatoes. If you don’t have a blender, just pass the potatoes thru a mesh strainer. This helps remove those stringy bits, as some babies strangle on them.
  5. Store in containers or freeze.


If you’d like to leave the skins on, slice the potatoes and steam them until tender. Blend until smooth, adding either water or no-sodium chicken stock to adjust consistency.
