My toddler is a HUGE pasta eater. And like other moms, I struggle to make sure he's eating balanced meals and getting everything he needs nutritionally - but it's hard when he picks around all the meat and veggies to scarf up the pasta! So when Mom Central offered to send me a box of Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta to try on him, I took it!
Ronzoni Smart taste looks JUST like regular white pasta - but it's been fortified with extra calcium and fiber. It's also got NO sodium or preservatives, and is lower in fat than regular plain pasta. I served it twice, once with an Italian Chicken dinner and once with shrimp scampi. BOTH times, the Boy Wonder ate all his pasta! We noticed that unlike traditional "whole grain" pasta, the Ronzoni Smart Taste doesn't taste any different than regular pasta, so it's easy to use without changing the flavors of my usual dishes.
The Ronzoni folks made this fun "Supermom" video spoof, with more than half of us worrying about getting our kids the proper nutrition we can use a good laugh!
Overall, we were definitely impressed with Ronzoni Smart Taste! I'd definitely recommend it, especially for moms whose kids don't like the "healthy" pasta - they'll never know...hee hee! For more nutritional info, and for a $1 coupon, be sure to visit the Ronzoni SmartTaste webpage!
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Ronzoni Pasta and received a sample of Ronzoni Smart Taste Pasta to facilitate my review and a $20 thank-you gift certificate. I did not receive any other compensation for this review. This review reflects my honest opinion based on my experience in using the product, and this post was not edited or reviewed by anyone
