yes.
because my mom says so. Embarassed actually she wants the child to grow up getting use to drinking soup in a chinese meal.
soups must be nutritious one dish meal.

I try to cook soup everytime we had meals at home. Sometimes I don't, my girls will ask me "mummy, why no soup today?"

My 4yo eldest ds is a soup lover. He loves chinese soup, even those with herbs that are bitter or those "black" soups that MIL brewed. But I am not really a soup drinker.

And I call him my "China-man" as ds prefers chinese cooking than western meals. Can't believe that he doesn't fancy pizzas and hamburgers, he would rather have his rice with fish & veg anytime ! :lol:

Nope for mine. Havent been practising this actually. But my 2 years old elder ds do loves soup too. My mil boils pretty good soup & during the weekends when we are there, and if she did make soup, she'll feed my elder ds with it. I'm a soup lover, but not my hubby. Hubby prefers western cream soup, but I like chinese type of soup...like chicken soup, carrot & potatoes soup.

yes..a must for soup in my home or else my hubby and daughter will yak at me. Guess this has been practising for years. My hubby grown up without having this soup practice in his home as for me I am in a home cook soup environment from young. When I got married to my hubby, I still practised and thus my hubby is so used to soup now and imagine if I cook Nasi Lemak on days he can also ask me why no soup!!

Apologies for replying so late. Been busy. The first "tong" is soup in cantonese but the second "tong" also said in the same way means to "cook".

So translated it means, drink your soup or we will skewer and barbeque you on the rack. :twisted:

Rendy

go for vegetable soups that are cooked with radish, potatoes, carrots.
my nephew was allergic to eggs too. my aunt only gave him eggs when he was 3 years old. Now he is a big boy of 5.

or you can cook soup that is made of soya beans, ikan billis.

or you can boil soup out of fish bones. remember to use a fine sieve to collect the tiny bones. to be extra safe, I pour fish bone soups thru a coffee sieve bag..you know, those kopi bags used by kopitiam?

most toddlers are allegic to egg yolk. go to our CA portal on Nutrition and Children. There are plenty of porridge recipes for him.

Yes! My son loves soup ... especially when there's carrots or pea's in it! I have my local Dry Seafood shop "pack" individual packets of stuff for me. Sometimes, I just get ready packed packets of soups from the local supermarket and just add pork bones or ribs to make soup.

There is a Salmon fish soup that my son likes ... salmon bones, with cilantro, ginger and tofu. Boil it for 1/2 hr to 1 hr ... add salt to taste. It's Yummy, healthy and quick!

I think Chinese believe soups are good for you. It helps you to rejuvenate from the inside out. My friends from China and Hong Kong told me that they have different soups for different seasons.

Conn, thanks for the interesting link. Sure helps in adding to the array of soups we cook.

My DD loves Chinese soups. She basically skipped the entire puree food phase and went straight to bread and english-style cream of mushroom soup. We did this for a few months and one day she decided that she liked Chinese soup. Now she needs to have Chinese soup everyday - at least dinner at the very minimal.

Tiggerbaby, what do you mean by " Dry Seafood shop "pack" individual packets of stuff for me" ? Do you then just add in pork or something to the mixture? Please share as it will be very useful in varying the genre of soups! Smile

TIA!

Hi Florissa, over here in Toronto we have stores that sells dry seafood/goods stuff (i.e. sharkfins, scallops, beans, abalone & etc...).

What I do is I tell the person there I want something for everyday soup. I ask that he packs enough for 3 people in individual packets.

Whenever I need to make a soup, I just add meat. It's similar to those ready soup packets you find in Malaysia/Singapore.

I do this because I find it a little "fresher" then those pre-pack ones, and I know I get good quality stuff (it cost little more then the pre-pack ones).

Hope it helps.
