Noodles and cheese are appealing to most children (and parents). In this delicious vegetable-spätzle combination, kids get the taste they crave plus a generous portion of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins B1, B6, which are good for conentration, folic acid and the mineral magnesium.
The casserole with wholemeal spaetzle is particularly hearty and rich in fiber. A little trick if your family turns up their nose at wholemeal pasta: cook a mix of normal and wholemeal varieties.
