Poor little thing had his rubella jab yesterday morning and spent the night throwing up and it's working way through body today (was fine with measles and mumps jabs bizarrely). He's managed dry toast and porridge today and is now getting hungry. Not sure what to make him - thought soup would be a good option. Got loads of veg etc in fridge. He's had 'runs' today so want to be careful. Help anyone!???

Poor little sausage!

Soup queen here. First fry some onions gently in oil or butter, with lid on. Throw in peeled and chopped chopped veg - root veg of any kind, butternut squash, and/or leeks, mushrooms, an apple for sweetness - and also a handful of orange lentils works well. Cover the veg with boiling water, add some stock powder and other seasoning eg a bit of tomato puree, worcester sauce, a teaspoon of sugar. Stir well, cover and simmer for up to an hour - addd more water if it look dry. When it's all soft, blend with a hand or jug blender. You can add cream or yoghurt for serving. My DS loves it - make sure it's not too hot of course - he may also like dipping bits of soft bread into it.

Hi SL that sounds great - thanks! Got red lentils which should do the trick. Thanks so much, struggling today - not used to getting by on 2 hours broken sleep!

Well it's very easy to do and you can also freeze it - so make a lot. It is the most brilliant way to get veg down them.

Well, ds has just asked for his SECOND bowl so obviously feeling better. Tastes great and absolutely perfect suggestion (hadn't realised lentils and yoghurt are sometimes used in Asia for treating diarrhoea). Thanks again!
