For nights where you need an easy dinner, this Slow Cooker Veggie Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese Sticks idea will be a mealtime saver.
What I love about today’s recipe is that the slow cooker does all the heavy lifting (cooking) while you go on about your day. Dinner can cook while I run the kids to swim practice, art class, or karate!
As a busy mom to 3 young kids, I appreciate when one of my friends shares with me strategies that work with the kids, especially when it comes to making mealtimes less of a struggle and making sure my kids get enough of the nutrition for the day. This veggie tomato soup is a great way to fill my kids with veggies and giving them something they love at the same time, grilled cheese!
By cutting the grilled cheese into strips and using them as dippers, my kids forget they are eating soup that is loaded with the extra nutrition they need for lunch or dinner.

Soup is one of our favorite dinners to enjoy as a family. There’s just something about a big bowl of soup that’s so comforting and calming after a long day. I love making this Enchilada Soup or a big pot of Paleo Chili, but sometimes I like going back to a classic – chicken noodle soup!
What’s more classic than chicken noodle soup? I swear it cures a cold as soon as it hits! The best thing about this version is that it’s completely made in the Crockpot, which means it cooks while you’re at work or running errands, and it’s done when you get home. A dinner that takes almost zero effort? Win!

Looking for a new soup to add to your winter meal rotation? Warm your family with the familiar flavors of cumin, chile powder and smoky paprika with this Enchilada Soup Recipe that comes together in minutes.
About this time of the season my soup rotation is feeling a little tired. While chicken noodle, potato and hearty vegetable soups are all favorites, sometimes you just need to mix things up a bit. This Enchilada Soup will do just that. Cumin, chile powder and smoky paprika make it a flavorful soup for the adults, without being too over the top for kids. Finishing it off with your favorite mexican toppings such as shredded cheddar, avocado and fresh pico de gallo make it even more fun.
In addition, this soup is one of those great recipes that tastes even better the next day, making it an excellent thermos lunch! Check out how easy it is to make in this short video below.
Are you looking for an easy crockpot chicken noodle soup recipe to make for your family? Whether they are sick or just looking for some warmth on a cold winter day, this recipe is perfect.
Whenever my kids are feeling sick (or not), this chicken noodle soup is always a hit. There is just something about a warm bowl of it that makes you instantly feel just a little better. This is a great recipe if you find yourself in the middle of a busy week with very little time to put dinner together. It’s so simple to just throw all of the ingredients into the crockpot and let it do the rest.
A great thing about this recipe is that you can add as many veggies as you want, so it’s extra healthy and delicious for the kids, unlike all the processed soups you find at the grocery. The flavors you get in this soup are so much better than canned soup, and your kids are sure to notice and appreciate the difference.

I love thermos lunches. In the fall, winter, and early spring, I try to have a thermos lunch once a week in our school lunch menus. A good thermos school lunch tells my kids that mom wanted them to have a homemade “meal” for lunch that day.
I’ve tried filling them with lasagna, spaghetti, and soups, and they are typically very receptive. On the other hand, should I have the bright idea of filling the thermos with leftover grilled vegetables from dinner, the thermos would come back untouched.
I don’t know what it is about the kids + veggies combination. Why does it have to be so hard to get them to eat more veggies?
Since my kids are very picky, I’m constantly trying to find ways in which I can sneak more of them into their diet (hidden, cooked differently, in their favorite recipe, baked—you name it, I’ll try it).
I love my thermos containers. I can pack a filling lunch that is easy to eat in their 20-minute lunch period.
Some of the other things I’m always keeping in mind when creating MOMables menus are ways to revamp leftovers, help my subscribers stay on a budget, and use real and convenient ingredients.
I wrote a post in this column about why I am on a mission to help others feed their kids better.
One of the reasons the use of more real ingredients in our diet plays a big role is because my daughter is allergic to disodium phosphate and chemically-derived nitrates. For this reason, I don’t buy things that have orange powdered cheese or processed cheese (those triangular chips, orange puffs, blue box mac and cheese, fake block cheese—it seems to be everywhere!) or processed meats cured with chemical nitrates.
If I’m purchasing a “boxed” anything, the product can’t have artificial flavors, synthetic preservatives, or GMO ingredients (the final one is by choice). I thoroughly scan each label before they go in my grocery cart, a quick process that can save me a trip to the emergency room.
As a full-time working mom who often travels, I also have a few items in my pantry that dad can whip up quickly, insert in their lunch, or pull out of the freezer for lunch or dinner.
This soup is a delicious and hearty dinner for the family but also perfect for a school lunch. Last month, I had 368 moms in my recipe-testers group perfect the recipe so your kids could enjoy it too. Bonus: It’s just $1.24 per thermos! Win-win.
