What do we love about our lentil bolognese pasta?

It’s important for our health to eat a range of protein foods. Our bolognese sauce is made using red lentils; an alternative to meat and high in both protein and fibre.

Protein is an important macronutrient needed for growth, repair, and maintenance in the body, especially for bone and muscles. Fibre is important for children as it can help digestion and prevent constipation.

Pasta is a starchy carbohydrate which provides energy, vitamins and minerals.
