Most likely, each of us since childhood has heard from mothers and grandmothers about the need to eat soup every day.

Moreover, in many states there is no such tradition at all, and they, it seems, are not particularly affected by this. Is it good or not needed soup for our body? Briefly deal with this issue.

In the digestive system, the fluid absorbs fairly quickly, helping the body maintain a normal water-salt balance.

Especially relevant soups in the cold season. They perfectly warm, start the metabolism and give the person the necessary heat energy. In addition, nutrients dissolved in water are absorbed much faster, and this is simply necessary for the infants digestive system of children.
