This sweet potato soup for babies is richly flavored and delicious, but contains none of the salt so dominant in many commercially prepared soups!
You may introduce this soup to your baby – with your doctor’s consent – from around 6 months of age.
You might, however, like to wait until a little later in baby’s first year if he has a sensitive tummy, as this recipe does contain a little onion (here’s more information about using onion in your baby food recipes).
For older babies, this dish is yummy served with a finger food accompaniment of little fingers of cheese on toast!
16 fl oz (2 cups) homemade vegetable stock
1 medium sweet potato (peeled and diced)
1/2 small onion, chopped
pinch ground allspice
2 whole cloves
The soup is now ready to serve. If your baby is enjoying texture, then try pureeing only half the mixture, then mashing the rest and finally stirring the two halves together!
