RECIPE: Chicken, Leek & Potato Soup for children

Delve into this mouthwatering nutrient-rich heartwarming soup. This soup brings adequate protein from the chicken and filling that veggie void.  Many children are not eating enough vegetables per day, which are oh so good for our overall wellbeing.  Soups are a great way to do this! 


This soup brings onion, celery, leek and garlic which pack the flavour, while the potato, also a vegetable, adds a creamy texture.  Leeks are a good source of Vitamin A, important for your eyes and your immune system. A dash of turmeric and curry powder as the cherry on top for flavour and a pretty soup colour, so the kids do not even know there are veggies inside, particularly if you puree this soup well!
