Favorite Baby Soups

Soups are a nutritious and comforting option for babies and young children, especially during periods of illness or lack of appetite. Their soft, easily digestible texture makes them ideal for little ones who may have difficulty chewing or swallowing solid foods.

Soups are also incredibly versatile! They can be pureed to a smooth consistency for babies just starting on purees or baby-led weaning, or left chunky for older babies and toddlers who are learning to handle more textured foods.

All the soups mentioned here are not only kid-friendly but also lifesavers for busy families. You can whip them up in advance, ensuring you have a healthy and tasty dinner ready to go, even on the most hectic days.

Serving Suggestions for Kids Soup

  • Make sure the soup has cooled down before serving to your child.
  • Use child-friendly bowls – choose those that are easy for little hands to hold and aren’t too heavy. I love this stainless steel set because the bowl comes with a handle and is easy to clean. This is a great suction bowl for babies.
  • Thicker soups are easier for babies to self-feed as they learn to eat on their own. You can keep the consistency smooth or chunky.
  • For smooth-textured soups, consider mixing the soup with lentils, oatmeal, pasta, rice, etc. to make it easier to scoop. This is also a great way to incorporate more texture and nutrition.
  • Dipping fun – make eating more interactive by serving the soup alongside toast, crackers, chips, vegetables, etc.
  • Pressuring doesn’t work. Role modeling does! So go on and enjoy your bowl of soup without commenting on what they are or aren’t eating. It just might pique your child’s interest.

How to Store Baby Soup

Transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat on the stovetop over medium heat until warmed through or in the microwave.

To freeze, first let the soup cool completely. Then transfer to freezer-safe containers or freezer bags, making sure to leave some space at the top of the container or bag for expansion. You can freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw soup in the refrigerator overnight.
