Healthy and delicious, these sweet potato tots are a perfect finger food for your weaning baby and are a great snack for the whole family. Try them out now!


  • 3-4 sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 125g grated parmesan cheese, plus more for rolling tots in
  • 1/4 tsp salt (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C and line a tray with a baking sheet.
  2. Steam the cubed sweet potato until you can pierce them with a fork but still too tough to eat. 
  3. Put the sweet potatoes and parmesan cheese in a food processor. Pulse a few times to break the potatoes up.
  4. Once processed, fold the mixture a couple of times, making sure you have a chunky mashed texture.
  5. Form into small balls with your hands and then roll each tot on to more parmesan cheese – just enough to lightly coat them.
  6. Place on the baking sheet and cook in oven for 12-15 minutes, turning them at least once mid-way so they cook evenly on all sides.
  7. Remove from oven and serve.

Sweet Potato Tots


To freeze before cooking, form into small balls and roll in parmesan cheese, then transfer into a freezer-friendly container and put in freezer. When ready to eat, place on a baking sheet and bake until fully cooked.
