This comforting, easy to digest Mee Sua Soup with Sliced Fish will soothe and nourish your little one. It is especially helpful when kids lose appetite or when they are not feeling well. The use of ZENXIN steamboat stock and shiitake mushrooms give umami flavour to the soup, simply add organic sweet corn for natural sweetness, thus reducing the need of using sodium-laden seasoning like salt or MSG. Pumpkin mee sua has a smooth and soft texture, the vibrant yellow colour that comes from organic pumpkin helps stimulate appetites too.

I’m a food artist, recipe creator and Mum to 2 active boys, aged 11 and 6.
I started creating character bentos 8 years ago. It brought me joy when my children were encouraged to try different varieties of vegetables and fruits through these bentos.
I cook at least 5 days a week and I try my best at meal plannings to provide a well balanced diet for them.
