Fussy eater approved sweet potato and carrot recipe

The greatest frustration for parents of fussy eaters is knowing what to cook for their fussy eater. Over the next couple of weeks I'll share "my fussy eaters favourite meals" with recipes and tips. 

With cooler weather finally arriving here in Brisbane, I thought I'd start with a soup recipe. 

This recipe was described by my fussy eater as her new favourite meal! So, of course, I felt I had to share it with you! 

This sweet potato and carrot recipe works because it is sweet and I blended it until smooth. It is think and creamy when you add coconut milk or cream. It is also so simple to make, everything just gets thrown into a pot, no roasting required!

Ideas to help your fussy eater learn to like soup:

  • Start with this recipe - this combination is beautifully sweet and creamy. 
  • Add croutons or pasta to the soup to add more bulk and also give your child an incentive to try it - pairing a food your child already likes (pasta/bread) with a food they are learning to like is a good way to encourage them to try a new food.
  • Make it fun - let your child drink the soup through a thick straw. This works well if your child is very reluctant to try soup. It adds a fun element and this can be phased out as your child learns to like soup.
