My 2 year old has stopped eating vegetables since a few weeks. He does try to eat them but when he tastes what's in his mouth it comes right out. I haven't been making a fuss about it because I don't want to make things worse. But I do want my child to eat his vegetables.
My aunt had given me an old children's cookbook from when her children were young. I found a recipe for vegetable soup in it. So I gave it a try.

Here's what you need:

- 2 leeks
- 1 medium sized onion
- 2 tablets of beef stock
- 1 liter of water
- 1 clove of garlic
- sour cream
- a pound of carrots
- butter

Chop op the onions, leeks and carrots. Put a big pan on the stove and melt a chunk of butter. Stir the veggies till they're soft. Add a liter of water along with the the stock tablets. Add the potatoes and let come to a boil. Turn down the heat and let it simmer for 20 minutes.

Turn of the heat and take the pan of the burner. Add a big dollop of sour cream and whizz the soup in the blender till it's nice and smooth.

I was so happy my son ate it and even asked for more!

I hope your kid does as well :-)

Have a lovely day.

  6. I'll have to give this a try too! My son is just not having vegetables right now either. He's entered the picky 2-year-old phase and has declared himself on a Mac & cheese, chicken nugget and pizza diet. Hopefully, something different, like a nice, flavorful vegetable soup will be just the thing! Thanks for sharing with us at the Friday Funday blog hop! #FFBH
