For a deeper flavour, roast the squash and add it with the stock.

Add red lentils to this soup to make it even more hearty and nutritious.

Make a simple baby food by steaming some extra pumpkin and apple on top of the soup and then mashing them.

It is cheaper to buy a whole pumpkin and make extra soup and baby food, which you can then freeze.
