When it comes to food, my kids haven’t got the memo that it’s AWESOME!!! My 3 year old can literally charge off a muesli bar for an entire day.

My six year old has only just started to get a little more adventurous with his eating, like last night he had Ravioli and it was a BIG DEAL!!!

I have spent so many hours stressing that their little bodies are not getting what they need, everyone reassures me they will eat when they’re hungry and it will change over time, but sitting in the middle of fussy eater land ain’t pleasant.

Besides their daily menu of muesli bars and Ravioli, there is one other thing that my kids always inhale and it makes my heart sing with happiness.

They LOVE my home made sweet potato fries and why wouldn’t they ah? Any chip is a good chip in any sane person’s eyes. And while your kids think they’re winning at life by getting chips for dinner you can rest easy knowing that Sweet Potatoes are a great source of Vitamin A, C and B6, dietary fibre, potassium, folate, niacin and calcium.

So…if like my kids, your kids are also a pain in the derriere with eating, give these bad boys a try. They’re not just tasty for mini humans either; my partner and I inhale them in record time too.

What cha need:

1 large sweet potato


Olive oil (or coconut oil)

An oven

What cha need to do:

Pre set your oven to 180 degree’s fan forced.

Chop your sweet potato into chip-like looking bits, approx 1cm thick. If you have one of those fancy chip cutters…even better. I rock it old school and use a sharp knife, does the trick a beauty.

Line your oven tray with baking paper and pop your sweet potato chips on it. Don’t let any of them overlap.

Drizzle olive oil and a generous amount of salt (good quality rock salt – not table salt) onto the chips.

Pop in the oven and bake for 10 mins then turn those babies over.

I crank the oven up to 200 degrees for the last five minutes because I find it makes them extra crispy.

Then get these babies out of the oven and pop them in a bowl for the rug rats to devour. YUM YUM PIGS BUM.
