pretend you're splitting it between your two children who are nearly the same age. in other words, get a bowl to eat out of and a container for the fridge. one scoop into the bowl one scoop into the container and keep going until you have two equal portions. if you find an unequal distribution of solids do a little swapping so they are the same.

You could weigh it out... I'm assuming the can has the weight on the outside, just divide that by two, and weigh out half.

But in the end, it's never going to be 100% perfect. I figure it all evens out... one time I might have more chicken, another time I'll have less.

I don't use canned soups - instead I much rather make my own, then I know exactly what is in it and what the portions are. I also bulk cook them so I can freeze in individual serves for later use. It will save bucket loads of money and be a much healthier option.

Hey guys,
I was wondering how are you supposed to measure soup like the serving size says one cup with the serving of 2 in the entire can. Say it was chicken noodle soup how to evenly distribute the chunks of chicken or whtever it might be and the broth???
I never can figure it out so I've just been eating 2 servings instead.
