Sweet Potatoes With Butter and Brown Sugar

 Im not the type of mom that is willing to create food sculptures to get my kids to eat.  I dont have the time and I dont even think it works!  But these Japanese veggie/cheese cutters are just adorable.  Great for carrots, potatoes, apples, pears, and cheese.

Roasted sweet potatoes, with a little butter and brown sugar, can taste like candy once they caramelize.  Sweet potatoes are chock full of vitamins and have a low glycemic index.

You dont need special shapes to make this, either.  You can just peel a sweet potato and cut into bite size pieces.  Dot with some butter and sprinkle with a little brown sugar (it doesnt take much).  Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes or so, depending on the thickness of the pieces.   Stir occasionally, being careful not to burn themburning can happen quickly and then your kids will determine them gross, icky, disgusting, inedible.  When the potatoes are soft and slightly brown and shiny, they will be sufficiently candy sweet.
