1. Chicken meatball soup
You can use alphabet pasta or pasta shapes to make this soup more appealing to younger children. Use macaroni or any other pasta for older children.
2. Quick pea & ham soup with mint
Taste the soup before seasoning with salt, as the stock and ham will be quite salty.
3. Mexican cream of corn soup
Serve topped with sour cream, salsa and coriander and serve corn chips separately for adding to the soup as desired.
10. Meatball and tomato soup
A main-course the kids can make, then get stuck into.
12. Beef Pho
This gently flavoured beef noodle soup is a staple in Vietnam, where it's served beside the road from massive pots. The soup is ladled into bowls and slurped at tiny plastic tables. Add more or less chilli and spice as desired. Be flexible, too, on the amount of noodles and inevitable spillage from slurping. This is the ultimate one-dish meal for children.
