Some parents say to wait to give babies sweet potato because they'll love the sweet taste so much that they'll prefer sweet foods later on. This result really depends on your child, but breastfed babies will like the sweetness of sweet potato since breast milk is also sweet. One thing you can know for sure is that sweet potatoes are packed with vitamins D and C, as well as iron, potassium, magnesium (which helps reduce stress), and B6. Added bonus: kids love this stuff, no matter their age.
