Children’s bean soup

Children's bean soup

It is a reality that if you teach your children to eat well from the beginning and set an example for them, they will eat well and follow in your footsteps.

It’s a fact that there are always dishes they like more than others. Because like every person, every child also has their own tastes and preferences.

Soups are always something that the little ones in the house love, because they are rich and because they can be the sea of fun. Beyond the typical noodle soup, there are endless, different and healthy options you can make at home. With shaped pasta, stars, letters, dots, with legumes, with vegetables…

A good and complete combination is this one that we present to you today, animal pasta, which you will love, and white beans, a dish with complete proteins and carbohydrates.

Besides, this soup tastes like pizza! The combination of tomato, basil and cheese gives it a delicious flavour, so the little ones will have no excuse that they do not like the taste.

In addition we assure you that they will find it very fun “fishing” animals with the spoon and identifying what each one is.

In addition, a warm soup at night, always feels great, and if you want them to get a little distracted, you can get them to cook it with you, you will turn dinner time into a really magical moment, a time when you can enjoy a different activity as a family, and with which they will learn the values and manners around the table.
