Made with fresh veggies, tender noodles and juicy white-meat chicken, Healthy Choice Chicken Noodle Soup is comfort food without the guilt. Plus, adding kale to this soup-and-sandwich combo elevates this meal to the next level. Kale is a powerhouse of nutrients boasting higher amounts of vitamin C than an orange as well as high amounts of antioxidants, vitamin A and vitamin K.
