10 Sweet Potato Recipes You Should Try!

Every week we are going to send out a fruit or vegetable to get kids (and some adults) to try new foods. This week we are encouraging kids to "experiment" with garnet yams, which are often times called sweet potatoes.

Sweet potatoes are amazing because they are loaded with vitamins, minerals and fiber! A single cup serving is packed with 769% of the Daily Value of Vitamin A, 65% of the Daily Value of Vitamin C and 50% of the Daily Value of Manganese. They are great for gut health, have 4 grams of protein, they are great for your eyes, have cancer fighting antioxidants, they can boost your immune system, and support brain health. With all that goodness, let's cook up some sweet potatoes!
