The Jolly Green Giant – a children’s delight.
(Firstly, apologies to those of you who received an incomplete blog post in the middle of the night – it was a draft copy that was clearly a little eager to hit your inboxes! Here we go with take two).
It’s a particularly wet, blustery and chilly day in Melbourne today so what better way to greet the day than with a tummy warming soup. Today’s recipe is one for the children, a recipe that I very much hope will help you, as the parent, fight a winning battle and encourage more greens into your children’s diets.
You may recall I wrote a little review on a beautiful children’s book recently, Supercharged Food for Kids. The author of this gorgeous book, Lee Holmes, has given me permission to share a recipe from the book with you all today. I hope the children love it!
