Turning crunchy, fresh celery into a warm and creamy soup allows kids to experience celery in a whole new way! Cut the potato and celery into sticks and have your little chef chop the veggies into chunks and carefully add them to the pot. When chopping, don't forget to include the leaves attached to the celery; they add so much celery flavor to the dish. While the soup is simmering, taste-test some raw celery with a dip or make little ants-on-a-log bites with celery, nut butter, and dried cranberries or raisins.
