Chicken noodle soup already appeals to kids, but some children can be turned off by green or bitter things such as parsley, green onions, or celery. And you probably don’t want to give them a giant bowl of refined carbohydrates. That’s why this Kid-Friendly Chicken Noodle Soup recipe calls for konjac noodles, which are noodles made from a low-calorie, low-carbohydrate, flavorless, and fibrous tuber that picky eaters probably won’t mind (or notice).
Kid-friendly Chicken Noodle Soup
If your kids don’t happen to mind green, feel free to substitute zucchini noodles and add all the parsley, chives, green onions, and broccoli you like! And while you’ll get more nutrients out of making a homemade broth, this recipe calls for store-bought quality broth or homemade broth made in advance to save time and labor—which we know is important when there are ravenous children involved!
