Kid Friendly Keto Soup Recipes
Does your kiddo love soup? Mine will only eat chicken or pea soup loaded with potatoes. Now that we’re keto, I found a few that she loves. This may have something to do with the fact that they all count cheese as a topping or main ingredient.
Either way, these keto soup recipes will warm you up and keep you filled during cold and dreary weather or when you just feel for some soup!
