Moms can have the challenging job of making two meals for dinner. One, for you, your spouse, and older kids, and the other meal for your baby or toddler. I’m a big believer in trying to make one meal that everyone can enjoy. And it’s quiet simple.
I recently made a hearty soup during a rainstorm that was packed with chicken, sausage, potatoes and spinach. My daughter is almost three years-old and is known to eat all of the above ingredients on their own. When she eats the soup, she’ll treat it like a divided plate and pick through to find a piece of chicken or sausage. But what I really think she likes the most about the soup is getting to slurp up the broth. She finds it hilarious at the sound and will always end each slurp with a “yum, that good.”
Babies and toddlers like soup. It’s easy to take the broth of the soup, a few of your toddler’s favorite pieces meat and vegetables and puree it in your Baby Bullet. If they’re not a fan of spinach, simply spoon the spinach out before pureeing. These days, I live for recipes that work for both family and little ones.
