If you’re looking for a yummy meal for your kids that’s organic (tick), has a mix of pasta, beef, cheese and veg (tick) and easy for on-the-go and convenient feeding (tick), then you should give Ella’s Kitchen’s Lip Smacking Spaghetti Bolognaise With A Sprinkle Of Cheese a shot.
Since I’m not above snacking on baby and toddler food when the need or duty calls, this spag bol is pretty good (bearing in mind I have an adult palate with a fondness for chilli).
The spaghetti is suitable for babies from seven months old, and comes in two varieties: “textured but not lumpy” and “chunky and lumpy” (very cute titles). They can be eaten heated or straight from the pouch.
The wholesome meal is 100% organic and contains no added sugar or salt as well as no additives, hydrogenated fat or genetically modified ingredients.
Ella’s Kitchen’s Lip Smacking Spaghetti Bolognaise With A Sprinkle Of Cheese can be found at Baby City, Toys R Us, Food Lover’s Market and selected Spar Retailers, PnP and Baby Boom stores nationwide, for around R44.
Random yet interesting spaghetti facts I found while writing this post
– January 4 is National Spaghetti Day?
– Spaghetti was offered in restaurants in the United States, around the end of the 19th century, as Spaghetti Italienne (which is believed to have consisted of noodles cooked past al dente and a mild tomato sauce flavored with easily found spices and vegetables such as cloves, bay leaves and garlic). It was decades later that it became commonly prepared with oregano or basil.
– In March 2009 the world record for the largest bowl of spaghetti was set and then reset in March of 2010 when a Garden Grove California Buca di Beppo restaurant successfully filled a swimming pool with more than 13 780 pounds of pasta
