Chicken Noodle Soup for Kids

Written by COA Nutrition Team On January 12, 2024

There’s nothing like a bowl of cozy, comforting Chicken Noodle Soup—especially when it’s one that’s easy to make in about 30 minutes. This version is quick to make and is a kid favorite!


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic (peeled and minced)
  • 2 cups diced celery (from about 4-5 celery ribs)
  • 2 cups diced carrot (from about 4-5 medium carrots)
  • 2 quarts reduced-sodium chicken stock
  • 1 pound diced chicken breast
  • 12 ounces egg noodles (or other small pasta shape)
  • Salt to taste, (optional)
  • Optional flavor additions: 1/4 cup pesto, grated Parmesan to top, and/or a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.


  1. Place a large pot over medium heat and add the olive oil. Stir in the garlic, carrots, and celery. Cook for 8 minutes.
  2. Add the broth and turn up the heat to high to bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce to medium high, or to a simmer, and add the chicken and pasta.
  4. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until the noodles are just soft and the chicken is cooked through.
  5. Season to taste with salt (if desired), Parmesan, or a little pesto.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Yes, you should get an air fryer!

There are a lot of questions popping out when it comes to this latest kitchen craze. Is it worth buying an air fryer? Here are some reasons why we think so: • Easy to clean • Easy to use • Safe to use • Healthier meals • Doesn’t take up much space • Faster Than Oven Cooking An air fryer is an incredibly easy way to cook just about anything. You place the food in a fryer-style basket and hot air rapidly circulates all around the food, making the food crisp – much like deep-frying, but without the oil. You can cook anything you’d make in the oven. So, yes, DO IT!
