10 Creamy Winter Soup Recipes Perfect For Babies & Toddlers
The days are cold and crisp which means bundling up is in order on a daily basis. Getting our little ones out of the house takes 30-40 minutes by the time the snowsuits, gloves, mitts and boots are on. Although I am personally not a big fan of the white stuff, there is a comfort that the cold weather brings.
Moments like walking into a house filled with the aroma of a delicious pot of soup on the stove. Ahhh! Soup is one of my favorite winter meals for so many reasons. They taste divine, you can load them up with plenty of nutritional ingredients and babies LOVE them!
