This Old-Fashioned Chicken Noodle Soup fits the bill for soothing, homemade comfort in a bowl.
What to fix: Poultry, fish, eggs, and cheese. Pair them, if it makes sense, with sweet sauces such as cranberry or apple sauce.
What to fix: Add powdered milk to puddings and smoothies or sub Greek yogurt (it has double the protein) in recipes that call for yogurt.
What to fix: Whatever they want, made as healthy as possible. Cool and creamy usually works (and chocolate is always good).
What to fix: Healthy high-fat foods like avocado and peanut butter or healthier milkshakes, smoothies, and ice cream.
