Today I am sharing our family’s favorite easy and kid friendly soup recipes to help make your weekly meal planning “souper” simple. LOL! For real though, soup is the perfect weeknight meal…and the kids love these recipes.
The Best Kid-Friendly Soup Recipes for Weeknight Dinners
Ah…Dinnertime. It happens in my house every evening around 6pm, but the mental preparation starts long before.
I typically do my weekly meal planning and grocery shopping on Sundays so that I already know in advance what I will be making each night for dinner.
Alright mamas, we are gonna kick this quick and kid friendly soup recipe round-up off with a childhood favorite – Chicken Noodle Soup. This has bite size chunks of chicken, no onions (usually a kid friendly no-no) bite-size noodles and tons of flavor.
This recipe will have your kids picking up their bowls and slurping every last drop.
We are gonna keep rollin’ right along with the Chicken Noodle Soup theme!
This time we have a gluten free version. This recipes calls for homemade stock, which I love to make from scratch when I have time on the weekends. Homemade bone broth is my specialty when one of the kiddos are sick, but for a quick weeknight dinner just grab a box of stock from your pantry.
I just love the heart shaped carrots too! Check out her tutorial on how to make your own. However, if you are looking to save yourself some time just skip that step and throw in a bag of frozen mirpoix (diced celery, onion and carrot).
I don’t think there is a kid out there who can resist mac-n-cheese. I know that my own kids would eat if every day if I let them. One of my favorite kid friendly soup recipes, this only takes 25 minutes to make and includes some veggies for extra nutrition.
One of my goals as a parent is to expose my kiddos to a variety of foods and flavors. Recently, we went to a Japanese restaurant and my kids LOVED the miso soup.
Unfortunately, the restaurant is about 40 minutes from our small town, so I needed to find a version that I could make at home for them to enjoy. This is one of the best kid friendly soup recipes to add some diversity to your meals.
Similar to the recipe above, this miso soup version has playful alphabet noodles to make it fun and accessible to newbies. Miso adds the perfect umami flavor, but it is also incredibly nutritious. It’s a complete protein, boosts the immune system, lowers cancer risk and blood pressure, and aids digestion.
