Reader tip: Minestrone soup for toddlers

Meal you can share with baby: Minestrone or vegetable soup

Sarah reports that her son Theo has never met a food he doesn’t like. Lucky mama! She shared a tip that sounded brilliant to me:

Take a can of low-sodium minestrone soup and dump it in a strainer. Serve your self-feeding baby or toddler the remaining bits and let him explore what he likes. “Pasta, beans, potato, green beans, peas, and carrots,” all make Theo’s list. Your results may vary.
