Kids are eating ... spaghetti
The homemade tomato meat sauce is yet again (yes, you guessed it) cunningly laced with grated carrot and zucchini, which melts away when cooked so they're eating vegetables without really knowing it.
I've finally worked out that providing limited choices is good with kids this age. So have a few different types of pasta on hand, not just the flat stuff.
Twisty shapes are popular, as are little curved tubes (liscio piccolo, if you're Jamie Oliver).
You can even buy teddy bear-shaped pasta that's Australian made, if you seriously think that's going to make difference to our terms of trade.
