If your kid is a “pasta lover” … and adores eating pasta, be sure that the particular foodstuff is very important for his or her health.

Healthy Diet

Pasta is made of pure wheat and is rich in carbohydrates, nutrients that provide energy to children’s bodies, thus, keeping them healthy and in good spirit.

Especially complex carbohydrates, which are found in pasta, should constitute the most important part of nutrients for both kids and grownups.

In an era when hazardous fats are hidden in many foodstuffs that are addressed to children (snacks, donuts, etc.) and whose contribution to children’s (and not only) health is extremely harmful, pasta is an excellent nutritional choice because it does not contain saturated fats. Additionally, wholegrain pasta provides double as much fibers as classic pasta, thus rendering pasta a dish that is a combination of flavour, enjoyed and searched for by the children, and of high nutritional value which has to be of parents’ interest.
