Discover all the benefits of making soup, as well as easy recipe ideas for the lunchbox!
Soups are good for all
Soups are inexpensive and so easy to make. Whether you use a slow cooker or a pressure cooker, you can prepare a savory soup in five minutes, and let the cooker do the rest of the work. If you like to meal prep, you will love to make soups as they can be prepared in batch and allow freezing for days when you are too tired or have no time.
What we like best about soups is that you can create your own soup every day with any veggie you have at hand. Options are unlimited, which makes it easier to limit food waste while exposing your family to a wide area of foods, taste, and texture too. Poor in fresh vegetables? Frozen vegetables work perfectly too.
Soups are by far the easiest way we found to teach the kids the love of vegetables, one soup at a time. Vary the textures and play at the dinner table with the seasoning. Kids love to season a soup to their taste by adding cheese, breadcrumbs, butter, or cream.
The ultimate winter comfort-food. There’s nothing like a nourishing bowl of soup to keep the kids warm, full and hydrated during the winter season. That’s why it’s always a great idea to make a soup to ease the first symptoms of a cold. Tip: load it up with fresh garlic, onions, celery, or carrots for a powerful immune boost.
