I’ve heard there are children who enjoy eating vegetables. Sadly, I do not know any of them personally. Getting my son to eat vegetables requires a fair amount of coaxing. He does like pasta, however, which is why Schwan’s mini bow tie pasta and vegetable blend is a good compromise at our house.
Schwan’s mini bow tie pasta and vegetable blend has sweet corn, green peas, diced red bell peppers, and shoestring carrots combined with mini bow tie pasta. It’s sold in a 2 lb. resealable bag and if you order online, you can earn Schwan’s rewards points good for savings off a future purchase.
I love most of the Schwan’s products I’ve tried, but this one is great because it’s fairly affordable and quick to prepare. In just a few minutes, I have a yummy side dish. I like to serve it warm with a bit of garlic butter, although it makes a nice cold pasta salad with the addition of chicken and some light mayo. Since you control the level of seasonings, you can make it bland for the kids and a bit zestier for the adults if you wish.
My son likes Schwan’s mini bow tie pasta and vegetable blend because it sticks to the more familiar “kid-friendly” veggies instead of having mushrooms, broccoli, Brussels spouts, or anything that could remotely be interpreted as “exotic” by young taste buds. Everything is also small and easy to chew, making this a great choice if you have very young children to feed and are worried about potential choking hazards.
With Schwan’s mini bow tie pasta and vegetable blend, you can feel good knowing you’ve convinced your child to voluntarily eat vegetables as you enjoy a nice drama-free family dinner.
