Tomatoes are actually fruits, but being low in sugar they are usually eaten like vegetables. Ripe red tomatoes are rich in beta-carotene and the anti-oxidant lycopene. Tomatoes are High in Vitamin C and Vitamin A.
Some tomatoes are sweeter than others, depending on their ripeness and the variety of tomato.
Use the ripest tomatoes you can. Added sugar will balance the natural acidity of the tomatoes, use more or less to taste.

Ingredients:-

1/2 gal. tomato juice
2 tbsp. sugar
3 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. salt
Pinch black pepper (Adjust according to kids level)

Method:-

1) Put all ingredients into a large non-reactive pot (use stainless steel, not aluminum) except lemon juice.
Bring to a simmer and cook, uncovered, until mixture is completely soupy, about 25 minutes.

2) Mix all ingredients together and let it cool .Add lemon juice .After that blend it in a mixer .Sieve it and Serve.
