Let’s Celebrate National Nutrition Month: Week 3

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

In celebration of National Nutrition Month… Here is a surefire way to get the kids out of the toy cupboard and into the kitchen.


The pasta sections of specialist Italian food shops can often resemble the contents of a children’s toy cupboard. All those tubes and corkscrews, and ribbons, not to mention the letters, soccer balls and surfboards (see below) are the stuff of dreams for fertile minds.

Shapes are easier to eat than rods or ribbons, so they’re a good choice for kids.

Some pasta companies make pasta meant specifically for pasta fun like these fun pasta noodles from The Pasta Shoppe.


They allow the imagination to run wild in the kitchen.

Happy cooking!
