1 doctor agrees

In brief: Common belief

Chicken soup, a common dietary element of many cultures, has been recommended for relief in respiratory illness and pneumonias.
There actually is some experimental work which demonstrates the relationship, although not strong evidence. You will not harm your child by giving chicken soup if they have a cold.
