Recipe by LeeAnne Wright
Pack your child’s choice of add-ins in containers.
Bring a medium pot of water to boil; add rice noodles and cook 3–4 minutes or until tender. Drain into a colander and rinse noodles under cold water to cool. Portion into resealable bags or containers.
In same pot, bring cooked chicken, chicken broth, fish sauce, lime juice and sugar to boil. Pour soup base into preheated, insulated hot-food container (large enough for noodles and add-ins) and seal.
Send soup base to school with containers of noodles and add-ins for them to customize their soup at lunch.
