I love being in the kitchen, and I’m all about easy healthy recipes that will be enjoyed by the whole family. I also love to get my toddler involved in everything I make. I’m sure you would agree; it is so satisfying to see kids helping out in the kitchen! More so, teaching the next generation about healthy food, and getting them involved is highly beneficial for so many reasons.

Tuna Sweet Potato Mini Bites are nourishing, easy and inexpensive to make. They’re also nut free, gluten free, dairy free and best of all, only take 20 minutes to make! They can be consumed hot or cold, making them a fantastic fuss free snack or a satisfying dinner.

I hope these become a healthy household favourite!
