No recipe image available."Even some of the pickiest of toddlers will eat their veggies when they are in soup. This soup is a creamy purée, so it if you child's "spoon" skills are not refined enough for soup, pour it in a cup and they can sip away. Always check the temperature of soup before serving it to small children." - Cheryl Tallman and Joan Ahlers.
