Chinese baby soups are not as common but they are a good way to introduce more liquid to babies. Try these if your baby do not like to drink water.
A good friend in Paris was looking for recipes of baby soups for her son when she discovered my website. It was really quite amazing because I didn't tell her that I have a website on Chinese soups. She had to email me to confirm that this website is mine. We had a good laugh.
She got me thinking that there are bound to be other Chinese mothers living abroad who wants to prepare some Chinese soups for their young children. I should compile some soup recipes just for children.
I am not an expert at making baby food because I do not have a child myself. So if you think I am wrong with the use of some ingredients or cooking methods, let me know and I'll rectify it. Having said that, cultural differences do play a part in how baby food are prepared. If you are going to disagree, do so gently and constructively. Thank you!
Chinese babies are usually weaned with congee, a porridge made with white rice. Rice porridge is a wonderful carrier as it is very gentle on and soothing for the digestive system. Click here for a collection of congee recipes for babies.

Silken tofu is delicate and soft. There is no need to boil and cook till it softens. It is packed with soy bean proteins. It is also easily digestible. Many Chinese mothers believe that tofu is good for the baby's skin.
