Broccoli Soup for toddlers, kids
Broccoli recipes for kids
I love soups! Soups are not only hearty, but also versatile and you can always turn them into something that is different from what you made last time.
Broccoli is a very healthy vegetable but I have heard from may mothers that their kid does not like broccoli because of its strong taste. My daughter too didn’t like broccoli as a toddler and I remember I used to make broccoli soup which she would have readily. My daughter loves her soups and I have already shared some soup recipes with you all.
Now she loves broccoli and I can simply steam or boil it, season it with a little butter, salt and pepper and she loves to eat it as finger food. She also loves it on top of her pizzas and in her pastas.
I feel the broccoli soup helped in converting her to the other side. This broccoli soup recipe is delicious, easy to drink for kids and hides any pungent taste that they may dislike.
