Most kids don’t even get close to their daily fiber needs, and this recipe offers 5 grams of fiber per serving. It’s also packed with whole grain goodness and phytonutrients, plant-based compounds that offer immune protection and health benefits. If you have any left-over mushroom meat sauce, serve it over whole-grain pasta with a side salad for tomorrow’s dinner.
