Sweet Potato Christmas Bites are a fun and healthy Christmas themed food for kids and babies. Roasted sweet potato in fun Christmas shapes.
I have been making a healthy Christmas snack every day in December and Finn has loved helping me prepare them but this was too difficult for him to help with. The cutters need quite a bit of force to get through the potatoes and it really isn't the easiest for kids. He still enjoyed watching and was kept busy by coating the bites in olive oil and placing on the baking tray.
The cut out solid shapes looked the best but I still thought the remaining sweet potato rings looked good and were of course just as tasty! Before putting them in the oven I sprinkled them with smoked paprika (our favourite spice) but you could leave plain or use a spice of your choice.
And just because he is cute.....little Rory enjoying his Sweet Potato Christmas Bites..
