MAKFA for children

The benefits of pasta for children

Since 2016, MAKFA JSC has actively cooperated with the National Association of Dietitians and Nutritionists of the Institute of Nutrition under the auspices of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences. Experts on dietetics are all sure: children’s diet must include pasta. But there are a number of issues important for the children’s menu.

Choose durum wheat pasta

It is crucial that children’s pasta is made exclusively from durum wheat. The key difference between hard and soft wheat is in carbohydrates. Hard varieties have complex carbohydrates, their starch has a polymeric structure, so the boiled pasta is not mushy, which ensures quick and long-lasting satiety. The entire line of MAKFA for children is made exclusively of durum wheat varieties. It is the basis of the Mediterranean diet and healthy eating.

Cook pasta right

There are two cooking times indicated on pasta packs: al dente (it. “to the tooth”), when pasta remains elastic and absorbs the sauce better, and scotta when pasta is soft and mushy. Choose the cooking time depending on the type of meals. If your child loves pasta as a side dish, you should cook it until ready, so that your baby can chew it more easily. If you plan additional ingredients and a sauce, it is recommended cooking pasta for a couple of minutes less. It gets soft and tasty when it absorbs the sauce.

Bronze matrix

The entire line of children’s pasta MAKFA is made using the so-called “bronze” matrices. These are special holes, through which pasta is extruded during the manufacturing process. They make pasta look rough, which ensures good shape of the product after cooking and perfect sauce absorbing properties.

Spark your child’s imagination

A wide range of MAKFA pasta formats for children will help you to make the children’s menu more diverse and turn the meal into an exciting game. Branded MAKFIKI is a familiar set of favorite toys for babies (train, airplane, asterisk). Underwater World, Zoo, Merry Alphabet, Dinosaurs - choose out of a whole collection of brightly shaped pasta for little foodies. MAKFA regularly updates its formats, choosing the most relevant children’s themes (MADAGASCAR series, etc.).

Make your child’s menu diverse

A special MAKFA soup line features two formats - asterisks and seashells. This tiny pasta is made specially as soup mixes. They are also ideal in some vegetable salads.
