Sweet Potato is often one of baby's first foods due to its sweet and palatable flavour. They are high in fibre, Vitamin A and C, potassium, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), niacin (vitamin B3), vitamin B6 and magnesium. Another one of baby's first foods is often rice porridge with pear puree and potato puree.
