Healthy Soup Recipes For Kids — Brit + Co


ADVERTISEMENT

soup recipes are one of the best ways to eat healthy: an easy way to trick yourself into eating lots of vegetables at once. Guess what? It works on kiddos too. As a parent of a 3 year old, I’ve seen first-hand how children gravitate toward starches over veggies. (Bread! french fries! Muffins!) But if I serve my son a soup first, he drains his soup bowl clean: veggies and all!

Here are the best healthy soups for kids! What are healthy soups? It’s not about calorie counts or specific diets. A healthy soup is one that loads on the nutrient-dense veggies and uses meat or dairy in moderation. Emphasis on veggies! Pack them for lunch too with our thermos recs below!

Any healthy sides to serve with these soups? 5-ingredient side dishes or any of these non-boring salads.
