This minestrone soup recipe, whilst perfect for babies from 6 months of age, would make a tasty meal for the whole family.
You could puree the soup if necessary, but the vegetables and pasta should be soft enough for baby to manage quite easily. Either cut the vegetables into very small pieces initially, or “squash” with a fork once cooked.
