Nothing embodies the earthy flavors of autumn more that mushrooms.
This is a perfect party snack, and with Hallowe’en around the corner, we like the health kick and sticky sweetness. As with any small pieces, though, make sure your children are chewing and swallowing properly to avoid choking. Other than that, dig in! (and have some baby wipes nearby).
With all the cooking baking and eating that has been done in the last month, something quick, delicious and nutritious is a welcome notion. This is, hands down one of the easiest tastiest soups around and can easily be doubled. With its simple ingredients you can share with your little one.
