About the Yam

Yams are a type of root vegetable that grow in many tropical and subtropical countries. They have a rough, brown skin and a sweet, starchy flesh that is often described as tasting similar to sweet potatoes.

Yams are very versatile and can be baked, boiled, mashed, or fried and are used in a variety of dishes, including stews, soups, casseroles, and desserts.

They are a good source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins C and B6, potassium, and fiber, and they are also low in calories, making them a healthy food choice.

Yams have a sweet and slightly nutty flavor that some kids might enjoy, especially when they are roasted or baked with a little bit of sugar and butter.
