Many kids do not like to eat their veggies in any form but make an exception to the vegetable noodles.

My daughter loved noodles but did not like the vegetables.

I started adding one vegetable at a time and slowly, she did not mind a few vegetables in the noodles. And then she started to eat vegetables in other dishes too. I just needed to be more patient.

So if your child is not eating veggies, have patience. In the meantime make this vegetable noodle recipe with a few vegetables and see if your child likes it.

Ready to make and eat noodle packs such as Maggie, Top Ramen etc. are available along with their own spice mix of different flavors.
