Kid-Friendly Recipe: Curried Sweet Potato Turkey Meatballs (mild)


In our first-ever Cooking with Sage video, Sage shared one of her favorite easy weeknight dinner recipes (perfect for mamas to make ahead and meal prep, too!)- curried sweet potato turkey meatballs.

I'm not a fan of hiding vegetables, I DO love to add them in any chance I can get! Sweet potatoes add belly-friendly fiber, B-vitamins and Vitamin C to these already delicious meatballs, and the curry adds a big dose of flavor (don't worry, they're not spicy!) and a dose of nutrition, as well.

Health Benefits of Turmeric: - anti-inflammatory: protects against inflammation (the root of disease)

- high in antioxidants

- heart-healthy This brings up an important point: Don't be afraid of flavor for kids! Beyond the very first foods, kids need their palates expanded as early as possible. They're not going to wake up one day with a taste for curry- they need to try it and experience it! So add some curry powder, a dash of cardamom or a sprinkle of rosemary. It's how their tastebuds will grown and learn to enjoy more mature flavors (just like you, mama!).
