Potato mash is a versatile dish that can be eaten on its own when initially introducing baby to solids, but also with a variety of vegetables and other dishes. Potatoes are high in vitamin A, C and potassium, and are an energy packed carbohydrate for your baby. Add in some baby milk or water and you will have a creamy, smooth, delicious potato mash!
