It is a well known fact that sweet potato recipes are required holiday side dishes. This one comes in bites that are cute as a bug, delicious and nutritious, and make an ideal addition to your baby led weaning Holiday appetizer spread.

I love this recipe for so many reasons. Sweet potatoes are one of the most brilliant foods on the planet—not just because they’re tasty. They’re packed to the brim with beta-carotene and potassium, fiber, and vitamin C. Goat cheese provides essential probiotics to help keep our littles (and bigs) healthy and comfortable, and cranberries outrank almost every fruit and veggie on the antioxidant scale.

MOM-TIP: Goat cheese contains smaller fat globules and higher levels of medium-chain fatty acids than cow’s milk, which makes it easier for babies (and adults) to digest more completely. It’s lower in fat, calories, and sodium, as well.
