Beetroot & Carrot Soup
This brightly-colored vegetable soup provides a lot of vitamin A, which is good for your toddler’s skin and eyes. Beetroot gives the soup its natural sweetness and lovely red color. Don’t worry if your toddler makes a mess of it. The stains are totally worth all the goodness you get from the veggies. Just make sure that your kid is not allergic to any vegetable before starting.
