I reckon one supper a week could be homemade soup with bread and cheese.

Except my lot are fussy. Is there a soup that is a winner with most children?

Poopy Soup. Always a winner here. grin

Veggies- carrots, onion, tin of tomatoes, garlic, swede
Red lentils or Yellow split peas

boil like billy ho - then blend. Check seasoning. I like to add chilli to all soups.

healthy and fills 'em up.

Minestrone gets eaten (tbh - its basically pasta & sauce made into soup!).

They used to be v good at Lentil Dhal/soup - but they've gone off it.

Chicken noodle soup works.

My childhood fave was pea and Ham....mmmm ... With homemade croutons

How about home made tomato soup?

i don't like canned tomato soup - but love my own home made version.

I roast some tomatoes, and a bit of onion and garlic in the oven. Then make up some stock using the marigold veg bouillon powder- blend it all together. Really easy, and tasty.

leek and potato and potage creccy (carrots and parsley and onion)

How are they with spices? I make a spiced lentil soup which goes down well. Tbh though, they like most soups if they are blended - they are less keen on 'lumpy' ones, unless it's a Thai noodle one.

We all love cheese and broccoli soup. I use the BBC recipe. Oh and serve with a cheese scone.

chicken and sweetcorn is the only soup all will eat reliably.

Smooth leek and potato with feta on top gets no complaints here. Though I could probably put feta on anything and my DC would eat it!

Parsnip n ginger goes done well here -4-5 parsnips
2 carrots
1 potato
Sautée an onion, 2-3 cloves of garlic and grates ginger (I use about 4 cm piece for a definite ginger taste, use less if you don't want it as strong )
Add in all the chopped veg and sautéed for another 5 mins, add in stock, boil, blend and yum grin
Chop all up

DP does an amazing spiced butternut squash soup with creamed coconut. We all love it, including 20mo DD.

Well, one of my children adores lentil soup (it's a simple recipe I got from the Guardian family section, google 'Edna's Lentil Soup'). I think she could eat it every day.

The other one hates it, and all soup.
Take from that what you will. grin

Unfortunately I don't think there is a one size fits all. Ds loves "orange soup" (squash/carrots roasted with garlic and blended). Dd likes clear soups like minestrone or chicken noodle. We alternate.

My daughter's favourite is potato and bacon

Home made tomato goes down well too

My mushroom hating kid won't eat this any more since she discovered what my 'brown vegetable' soup actually was though

DS's favourite is my chunky Chicken, Bacon and Lentil Broth

- 2 or 3 chicken thighs, skin removed, on or off the bone
- 125g smoked cooking bacon, preferably in one piece, diced
- 1 big onion, chopped
- garlic
- 3 big sticks of celery, diced
- 2 carrots, diced
- 125g green lentils
- small bunch flat leaf parsley
- about 3 pints good quality chicken stock

Start the bacon cooking in a large pot until the fat starts to run and then stir in the chopped vegetables .
Place the chicken thighs on top, cover with a lid and allow everything to steam on a low heat for 10 mins
Now add the stock, lentils & some pepper, bring to the boil, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes until the lentils are tender
Remove the chicken pieces, shred the meat removing any bone or gristle and return to the pot with the chopped parsley

Dead tasty ☺
