We are fans of "playing with your food" here at Veggie Buds Club because sometimes kids need to play with their food to make it a little less scary to try! These sweet potato stackers are just like fries but cut them into even logs and you’ve got a building just waiting to be created.
This recipe was developed by Katie Blauser: mama of three boys, wife of a picky eater, and food lover at Eat Pretty Darling. She believes in making food fun, healthy, & pretty! Katie’s not only outnumbered by boys in her little family, but also by picky eaters. She loves trying to find new ways to get both kids and adults to eat healthy while making food pretty yummy, pretty healthy, and pretty fun! Find Katie on Instagram (@eatprettydarling), where she shares colorful and cute food ideas for both picky and adventurous eaters.
Sweet Potato Stackers
It's Sweet Potato month at Veggie Buds Club and Heather of Happy Kids Kitchen developed an amazing way to get excited about this veggie! Enjoy this healthy-ish sweet treat: Sweet Potato Blondies. Kids are sure to gobble these up!
This recipe was developed by Heather Staller, a mom of two boys, ages 8 and 6, and cooking instructor specializing in bringing cooking into preschool classrooms. After college, Heather knew she wanted to be a teacher, but first followed her lifelong dream of going to culinary school. Teaching cooking combines both of her passions, and she truly enjoys introducing young children to the joys of cooking with fresh ingredients. Find Heather on Instagram (@heather.happykidskitchen), where she shares inventive kid-friendly recipes and ideas for cooking with kids at home.
