These are a brilliant food for feeding young children. Their naturally sweet flavour gives them instant appeal, the glorious rich orange colour provides a generous hit of the vegetarian source of vitamin A, known as beta-carotene, so important for immune system health as well as supporting mucous membranes and nourishing skin.
They are hugely versatile, suit a wide combination of flavours, and are even delicious used in sweet treats such as brownies. They have a softer texture than potatoes and when roasted can be literally mashed with the back of a spoon straight onto your plate.
