Sick Kid Soup

I have a sick kid on the couch today.  Stomach bug and other yucks.  Poor thing. 
She's been sipping fizzy water successfully for a few hours now and kept down a cracker, so it's on to soup.  We've cut  out processed food, so I needed to create something that would go over as well as canned Princess Chicken Noodle.
I went light on the chicken broth thinking that would be better for her belly.  I brought a half cup of broth and a cup of water to a boil.  I added in a few shakes of Adobo, some parsley flakes and a bit of paprika.
While that was heating up I chopped one carrot, a piece of kale, stem removed and two cherry tomatoes into bite size pieces.
I added the veggies to the broth and kept it on a low boil for about 5 minutes.  Maybe a few minutes more.
When the carrot bites were soft, I added in a handful of fine egg noodles boiled til they were soft.
She ate a bowl and asked for more.  No more canned soup for us!
