Baked Sweet Potato Tots

Some days my kids just decide that they do not want to eat anything that I make. Isn’t that wonderful? What’s a Mom to do?! I’m sure not going to resort to feeding them junk just to make them happy. I have learned to be tricky over the years and have been developing recipes that appear to be junk food to the kids, but are in fact healthy. Baked sweet potato tots are definitely one of my favorites, I always have them on hand! Easy to make, inexpensive, and they keep well in the freezer.
