Yummy Sweet Potato Bites

My 4-year-old son, L'Kanney, has CF. He was diagnosed even before he was born. He has just started pre-school this year and is doing great! I created this recipe one day in order to "use up" an excess supply of infant cereal. L'Kanney always enjoyed sweet potatoes (and dipping foods in syrup), so it just came together. L'Kanney has 4 other siblings (D.J., Brenna, Jacob & Lucas), so I make a non-CF dietary version of this for them. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have!
