    How to Make Toddlers Sweet Potato Scones
    1. Rub together the butter, baking powder and flour, encourage your children to squidge it all together as described for quiches. 
    2. When you have a breadcrumb like texture stir in the sugar and mashed sweet potato. Add the milk slowly until you have a nice, firm dough.
    3. Roll out the dough until it is as fat as an adult’s finger and cut your shapes. If your child is slightly suspicious of new foods it’s amazing what a star or heart shape will do for encouraging them to try!
    4. Cook in a pre-heated oven at 220°C / 430°F for 12-15 minutes until cooked throughout.
