US food company ConAgra Foods has said it is introducing microwaveable soup bowls under its Healthy Choice brand.

Healthy Choice Soup Microwaveable Bowls are available in three varieties - Old Fashioned Chicken Noodle, Country Vegetable, and Chicken with Rice. Each serving is a good source of fibre, contains 110 calories or less and is low in fat, the company said.

"For many people, the mealtime dilemma - at lunch or dinner - is finding something that's quick, tastes great and is good for them," said Valerie Sheppard, vice president of marketing for Healthy Choice - Grocery Foods, ConAgra Foods. "Healthy Choice Soup Microwaveable Bowls are a convenient way for them to get all three. They are the perfect desk drawer and pantry staple for people on the go."

In addition to the three new microwaveable soup bowls, Healthy Choice has a canned soup product line that includes 15 varieties.
