Kinder Kitchen Cooking Tip - Pink Pasta

Although most children like pasta, there are some that don't or get bored by it. White pasta is also not as healthy as brown pasta due to processing. I am slowly getting my children used to whole wheat pasta as they still prefer white pasta. Babies and young children do not need as much fibre so white pasta is fine when they are really young.

A way of adding a healthy twist to pasta and giving it a great new colour is to use the water that you have boiled beetroot in. The old wives tale of drinking your spinach water is not one to be discarded. This not only adds some wonderful nutrients from the beetroot to the pasta but it also colours your pasta a wonderful shade of pink.
