1 drop(no alcohol)vanilla extract

1 organic plum tomato
1\2 avacado,diced
salsa(optional)

RED LENTIL SOUP
1\2 cup red lentils
2 small onions
4 cups vegetable or chicken stock
1 cup sliced carrots
2tbs long grain rice
1 can(14oz/398mL)tomatoes(undrained),chopped
1 tsp each crushed dried thyme and oregano leaves
1 tsp grund cumin
1\4 cup chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste
METHOD
wash and drain lentils.In large saucepan,combine lentils,onions;cover and simmer for 30 mins.
Add carrots,rice,tomatoes,thyme,oregano and cumin;simmer,covered for 20 mins or until carrots are tender and lentils are soft.Add parsley;season with salt and pepper to taste.
Makes eight servings.
This soup is a very high source of vitamin A and folacin,and a high source of iron.It gives 5g of protein per serving. It can also be frozen for up to one month.

I make a lot of soups as it is a great way of getting veggies into my son without any problem.
Depending on the age of your children or their tastes(i don't like lumpy soup mummy!!)you can puree the soup too.
Serve with fresh homemade bread and enjoy!!

SNACK IDEAS
2 slices whole wheat bread spread with organic peanut butter.Cut with your childs favourite cookie shape cutter and serve with sliced apple, banana etc. My son enjoys his cut with a xmas tree shape and the bits that are left over are the pine cones that have fallen off the tree!
Try a small dish of natural organic yogurt with chopped up fruit for dipping.
Slice cheese with a ripple potato cutter and grapes cut in half.
Mix plain cheerios and raisins together in a little bag for snacking in the car.
Cut a mangoe in half and score it with a knife one way,then the other way andpush the mangoe out(it should still be attached to the skin) so that it looks like a porcupine.Chop a grape in half and add it to the front for the eyes.(hope this makes sense!!)
Boil organic eggs and peel them and cut them into quarters to make boats.Slice wholemeal toast in quarters for the docks.
Get your child to help choose some fruit and prepare a fresh fruit salad together.
Buy a cheap juicer and make your own fruit juice.

Hope these ideas are helpful.
