Spinach Soup for Babies, Toddlers and Kids:

Spinach/Keerai/Greens-All of us are very well aware that they are rich in nutrients and every parent would have a huge struggle making kids consume keerai/spinach. I myself prefer only very few recipes to include keerai/spinach in my food. I have already posted recipes of keerai dosa/spinach dosa, keerai masiyal/spinach puree, keerai sadham/spinach rice , methi dhal fry and ragi keerai adai.

You might not be able to find many soup recipes in my blog as I believe juices and soups should be given very occasionally for babies less than one year as they might replace breastfeeding. Moreover, babies should explore various sizes, textures when it comes to food. This is a major reason behind not having too many porridge recipes too. Porridges and purees should be stopped at 8 months completely. I would resort to soup only as a last choice or during sickness. But this spinach soup is pretty thick and can be given from 6 months after eliminating the possibility of occurrence of allergies. I have not added any thickening agent here and hence it is absolutely safe and healthy. Arai Keerai has been used by me in this recipe. You can use the spinach variety of your choice.

P.S:

You can also strain the mixture after blending and serve this as a clear soup.

Potatoes give a natural thickness and creamy texture to the soup.


You can add more water to reduce the thickness.

The taste depends on the variety of green chosen.

Babies above 6 months can be given this without salt and reduced spices.

Consult with your doctor before offering any new food to the baby.

Consider the family history of allergies before introducing any new food to baby

Be sure to have eliminated doubts of allergies of each ingredient before offering this to the baby.
