Because broth-based soups, like chicken noodle and vegetable soup, are high in liquid content and easy to digest, they're a good choice when nothing else stays down. Broth-based soups also tend to be relatively low in fat and calories, yet offer a respectable dose of carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and minerals.
