Sweet potato carrot tots

These tots are a great way to get veggies into your baby or toddler with yummy seasonings and a delicious cheesy flavour. The sweet potato and carrot create a natural sweetness, and the mashed veggies are nice and soft for little mouths.

These tasty snacks are also shaped into little tots/fingers so they are perfect for tiny hands to grasp and nibble on.

They’re a great baby-led weaning starter food, and a great way to keep veggies interesting and yummy for toddler.

With just a few simple ingredients, they’re quick to whip up and can even be frozen for a later date. This batch makes 25-30 tots depending on size, so I like to freeze half, and keep the remaining tots in the fridge for througout the week.

I’ve made this recipe many times on Ben’s weaning journey – today I served them alongside some protein (chicken sausage), fruit (nectarine) and healthy fats (avocado).

Here’s everything you’ll need!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Prepare vegetables

    Peel, chop and steam vegetables. I use a pot with a steamer attachment and a lid - I like to add water to my pot and pop it over high heat on my stove before I start preparing my vegetables (so it is hot and ready to go once my veggies are chopped).

    Once your veggies are chopped, add to your pre-heated steamer and steam for 10-15 minutes or until carrots and sweet potato are soft.

  2. Prepare your mix

    Mash your vegetables with a potato masher, then add remaining ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon.

  3. Shape, bake and serve

    On a lined baking tray (I needed two), shape your mixture into tots/fingers and bake for 20 minutes at 180C. Serve warm (but not too hot!).

    Is there a way to freeze some of these before baking? If so, how long would you bake from frozen?

      Hello! Yes, you can freeze them in a zip lock bag. I let mine thaw in the fridge, then microwave for about 20 seconds.
