Healthy Soup for Babies

It was once also Sofia's soup, now is Maria's soup, and generally perfect for babies or people who follow strict diets. This is dedicated to my little girls, Ana-Sofia and Maria-Cristina, instead of the festive cake!

Maybe it will be good for other moms, as I still receive many requests for recipes for children, and this is the most important coinsider and basic.

I am not a follower of a certain diversification regime, I take into account the doctors' recommendations but I do many things intuitively, combining classical diversification with self-diversification, ie adapting the child to the family diet (provided that it is correct and healthy).

The component you see in the pictures is already from 7-8 months, but as with any classic diversification, start with 1-2 root vegetables and slowly, slowly introduce them all. I always try to make soup with at least 3-4 kinds of vegetables, necessarily 1 dill or parsley, 1 drop of good oil, and when the cereal stages start I add 1 teaspoon of oatmeal, buckwheat, etc. in it, then meat and egg yolk.

In steps 1-2 you see the vegetables we have combined here as an example, so try to accustom children to the taste of all vegetables and when we move on to the next stage you may no longer have problems with the acceptance of tastes in certain foods.

I really liked that the addition of oatmeal is not only good for nutrition but also makes the soup much more creamy and pleasant in consistency. Buckwheat gives it a perfect aroma, it is among the children's favorites.

So, take the soup as an example and adapt it to your tastes, needs and period of diversification. Along the way, you don't care about the blender anymore, from 9-10 months I grind it with a fork, now Maria chews with the 6 teeth and we don't have problems with eating food or solid pieces.

In the next stage we move on to the normal soup and I adapt it for all family members, as an example you have on the site Soup with Buckwheat or Soup with chicken, rice and vegetables .


Any vegetables
4 pieces
You have in 1-2 steps the vegetable combinations
Sunflower oil
1 tsp
from that cold pressed, unfiltered or olive, corn, grape seeds, etc.
Fresh parsley
1 piece
or dill 1 thread
Oat flakes
1 tsp
or buckwheat - according to your diversification scheme

Step by step


Here we have:

- carrot, onion, parsley root, broccoli, 1 bean pod, zucchini, celery root and 1 sprig of parsley.


Here's another combination:

- potato, onion, carrot, frozen green peas (from my mother in the garden), green bell peppers and frozen spinach (by me).

In general, I noticed that the zucchini makes the soup tastier, the oatmeal gives it a creamy consistency.

Beets, parsnips, cauliflower, etc. also go very well.


Now we get to work, after we have decided what vegetables to combine and we are allowed.

Cut all the smaller pieces into a small saucepan, add the green parsley.


We add oatmeal (I buy whole flakes from BIO district).


Pour enough water to cover the vegetables well and add a little oil.


We put the pan on the fire and when it starts to boil we make the fire very small and leave it for about 1 hour.

There were days when they boiled for 2 hours, because I would take the baby and forget about the soup. That's why it's important to keep the fire as low as possible so you don't wake up with burnt vegetables :)


After boiling, put in a blender.

Here adjusted according to the child's preferences - Maria liked more liquid soup, I put a little less vegetables in the blender and a little more soup in them.


And pass, but try not to make an emulsion, to have small pieces of vegetables in it, at least the size of a grain of rice.


Be careful not to be hot and feel like eating :)


If you have any left over, you can freeze it in special containers and have it for unforeseen situations when you don't have time to boil the soup.

I usually boiled every day, when I didn't have time - every 2 days. On the way I had frozen soup.

Good appetite!
