Toddler Squash Soup

This is a great first soup for your toddler. It's thick, sweet and full of vitamins! You can use any squash or sweet potato. I make broccoli and spinach puree but steaming then blitzing and storing in ice cube trays in the freezer, bagging once frozen. You can add them to pasta sauces and soups and they don't change the taste :)

Toddler Squash Soup


1 butternut squash, skinned, gutted and cut into small pieces
1 cup coconut milk
1/4 tsp all spice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp iodized salt
broccoli puree


Place butternut in boiling water or stock (enough to cover) and bring to boil.
Cover and simmer on a low-medium heat until butternut is soft.
Drain the excess liquid but reserve a little in case you need to thin out the soup.
Use a hand blender or blender to puree the squash and add in other ingredients.
When I serve I add in two tablespoons (one ice cube size) of broccoli puree to the bowl.
Serve with wholemeal toast strips.
