This vibrantly green Pea and Mint Soup makes for a delightfully filling lunch. Soup is always a healthy and easy lunch idea and also a perfect food for your baby. Just remember to omit salt and reduce the amount of stock when making for your baby. This particular flavour is packed with hearty vegetables, and the mint gives the meal a refreshing kick. During a long school day, this is just the thing to fuel your little one and fight their hunger. Delicious when kept nice and warm in our Mummy Cooks food flask, lunches rarely come more satisfying than this cosy soup recipe.
