20 Soups for Babies

20 soups for babies | 20 recipes to make delicious soup for baby

Soup is one of my favourite meals to create for babies. Not only can you pack it full of nutritious veggies, but it’s a great way for babies to practise using spoons or dipping bread into the bowl before bringing it to their mouths. Soups for babies are the best kind of meal!

Don’t get me wrong, soup can be a MESSY business, but with the right baby led weaning equipment, like a good coverall bib and a splash mat, soup needn’t be avoided.

Here are 20 of my favourite soups for babies…all of which are simple to make, can be batch prepared and will make a healthy and nutritious baby led weaning lunch or supper for Mama too.

1. Minestrone Soup for Babies
