Baked potatoes with healthy toppings

Baked potatoes with lots of healthy toppings – don’t tell them this is a healthy meal. Baked potatoes make an easy and versatile family meal.   Sweet potatoes make a great alternative to regular potatoes, they are high in fibre, vitamins and minerals and taste delicious and sweet when baked.  You cook them in the same way as regular potatoes, but if they are large, they may need to be cooked for longer. 

Serves 6 

6 large potatoes or medium sweet potatoes – bake in a moderate to hot oven (185 C) for 
1 hour.   If the potatoes are very large, they may need longer.   Cut a slit into the potato skin with a sharp knife before cooking.  

On a serving platter or in small bowls prepare a selection of the following toppings: 

Sour cream  


Grated carrot 

Grated zucchini

Grated beetroot 

Celery – finely chopped 

Baby spinach 

Spring onions – chopped 

Radish – chopped 




Baked beans

Serve family style and allow everyone to choose their own topping.  Encourage kids to try something new each time.
