Kumara, kumara, kumara. Aka Sweet Potato. I cannot get enough of this vegetable for my son. This amazing-ness of a vegetable will help feed and multiply your little ones good bacteria. Researches are studying this at the moment to see if this could be a nutritious option for ‘commercial baby food’. Paired with mild and sweet paprika, training your baby’s taste for this spice will serve you well, as a variety of dishes your baby will soon be eating from chilli to dhal are made with this delicious spice.
