Nutritional values

One serving provides the daily requirement of niacin. The B vitamin is involved in the build-up and breakdown of fat, protein and carbohydrates - in other words, in the metabolism of the three main nutrients. This is important for the child's body, which is still growing, constantly developing and doing hard work every day.

Whole grain pasta makes the stew richer in fibre. If you can't find alphabet noodles in the intestine-healthy wholemeal version, simply use spiral noodles or spaghetti, which you break into pieces.
