Who doesn’t love French Fries? We are no exception to it as well including our toddler. But we try to limit her to these junks but it always goes out of hands. We as a parent need control towards it first, Right? Hence, I decided to provide my family with a healthier version of French Fries. Yes, these fries are oven baked and are made out of sweet potatoes.
