My Kids always amaze me with the things they say and the things they do. I always think that I have the wisest Kids. Don’t believe me? This is what happened the other day.....
During one of those usual evenings, I was exhausted from running errands and doing chores during the day. Still in my comfortable, old, and torn pair of jeans, my Kids and I sat down on the sofa to read one of their favorite story books. My legs were sore so I have them up on a little stool. My Little Boy (5 1/2 year old) stared at my knee, where the jeans was torn. He ran his little fingers on my knee with a serious look and said, "Mom, when I grow up and start earning money, I'll buy you a pair of new jeans without holes." Then my Baby Girl (4 year old) added, "Yes, a purple pair!" (Since purple is my favorite color.) That was definitely the wisest and most touching thing I've heard from my Kids.
I know I’m one lucky Mom that my kids love vegetables, most of the time. But, they are also picky eaters. They go through different “picky” phases all the time. They could love certain vegetables all along, but wouldn't even touch them the next week. Sounds familiar to you? You’re in luck! Picky eaters have finally met their match! With the help of The Wisest Kid in the Whole World™, Campbell’s soup is offering delicious recipes that your kids, or any picky eaters, won’t be able to refuse: Click here to check them out.
Through their recipe session, www.campbellskitchen.com, Campbell’s gives you a fresh way to delight your family, such as Mini Chicken Pot Pies, and fun ways to eat tomato soup or chicken noodle soup, etc. I was delighted to see all of the soup varieties featuring kids’ favorite characters like Super Mario and Phineas & Ferb.
I was inspired to jazz up the tomato soup with some Italian meatballs, topped with cheddar cheese, diced avocado (my Kids favorite green food at the moment), and serve with a couple toast soldiers. I let the kids add the toppings on their own and they had so much fun dunking the toasts into the soup.
Don’t be surprised if your kids want to lick the bowl clean and ask for seconds!

Meatballs Tomato Soup with Toast Soldiers: (Printable Recipe)
