It’s tough to make your kids eat vegetables, when you’re not particularly fond of them yourself. If it’s raw and it’s green, I generally don’t want it. Roasted sweet potatoes, on the other hand, I “yam” all in. Ok bad jokes aside, I love sweet potatoes. They are my go to vegetable and I know my kids will eat them.
February is National Sweet Potato month. Other than being the state vegetable of North Carolina, the Sweet Potato is full of vitamin A, which supports vision, the immune system and bone development. It’s also an excellent source of vitamin C, fiber and magnesium, which helps to maintain normal blood sugar levels. And for you dieters out there, sweet potatoes are only about 100 calories. It’s a win win.
