Why It’s Souper Convenient?

You’re always spoiled for choice when it comes to soup from the classic tomato and basil, pea and mint soup to the much loved carrot soup.

Carrot soups are high in Vitamin A which can are pivotal to supporting your child’s vision; eye health is paramount especially during the summer, where vision can be affected by UV Rays. The other benefits of consuming carrots include improved cardiovascular health and a lower risk of cancer.

Alternatively, tomato soups are high in vitamin c, lycopene and potassium; all essential vitamins and minerals that support your child’s immune system.  Alongside, building towards your child’s five a day, the vast majority of soups contain dietary fibre.

Souper Special Bonuses

If fussy eater concerns have been wearing you down, don’t worry as soup is not a simple puree of vegetables with bland tasting water.

The art of making soup, that has transformed it into one of Britain’s most popular dishes, encompasses far more. Soups are turned into a scrumptious blend of different vegetables and meat, via a vibrant assortment of herbs and spices, before being thickened with a little butter and garnished with honey for a natural sweetness, where desired.
