5 Delicious Soups for Your Kid’s Lunch Box


This year my daughter has begun to love taking soups to school in her insulated container. They stay warm until lunchtime and provide a healthy wholesome meal that keeps her going through the afternoon. In case you need a little refresher on soups for lunch box eating I thought I’d share some of our favorites:

 Cauliflower Parmesan Soup

Cauliflower Parmesan Soup: This silky soup is ideal for cold days when your child needs a big dose of vitamins and wants creamy comfort. It is a great way to fill them up with healthy vegetables without them even knowing it!

Tomato Soup Florentine

Tomato Soup Florentine: This simple soup is perfect for dunking grilled cheeses. If you don’t pack a grilled cheese you could even just serve it with cheese and crackers. It is light and dairy free and even contains a serving of spinach!

Root Vegetable and Bean Soup

Root Vegetable and Bean Soup: This vegetarian soup is perfect for a protein-packed lunch. It contains all the trappings of a full meal and only needs some oyster crackers or bread on the side. Be sure to make enough so you can have some for dinner, too!

 Chicken Tortellini Soup

Chicken Tortellini Soup: This hearty soup is a lifesaver for hungry kids. It is super hearty and perfect for filling up stomachs after a long morning hitting the books. To change it up a bit consider subbing in different flavors of tortellini or ravioli.

Pumpkin Cider Soup

Pumpkin Apple Cider Soup: This soup comes up just in time for fall. Buy two pumpkins: one for carving and one for eating. You can even get your kids in the kitchen to show them how to cook pumpkin and call it jack-o’-lantern soup! Be sure to pack some crusty bread for lapping it up.
