I hope you find some inspiration for some yummy and healthy soups for kids meals this cool season. If you hate serving soup because it’s messy, consider serving it in a cup, using a straw bowl, or even just a regular bowl and give the kids a straw. Cutting them in half makes them short enough for young kids to use in their bowls. You can also strain some of the juice out and let them have mostly solids.
Any way you do it, soup is a winner in my daycare and my house. It’s a great way to get kids to eat healthy food.
