Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Roasted Sweet Potatoes were a hit at USD 435’s Parents as Teachers "Veggie Fun" playgroup session. Veggie painting, touching and tasting were part of the fun-filled morning session.
Among other things, children had the opportunity to see how a sweet potato grew and then tasted these yummy treats. The recipe was recommended by Carley Clark and prepared by Lori Portelli for the activity-based session. 
A great way to add veggies to your menu!
