How To Prepare Potato Puree

Start the process by washing your potatoes. Then you can peel before you boil in water or you can boil in water before you peel. Personally I prefer to peel my potatoes before I boil. Boil the potato for 7 to 10 minutes. After that is done you can peel your potato and put it in a bowl.

Mash the boiled potato with a spoon or fork till it completely turns to paste. Then you add your egg yolk and mix till it is smooth. After that you can add your formula or breast milk and mix together. Add as much quantity of milk that would make it look like a puree. Once you are done you can now serve your baby the sweet potato puree.

It is good to serve your baby meals warm. Therefore make sure your potato puree is warm before you serve your baby.
