Jamie All my four are under 2 years old... They can eat rice at home! 😂 Babies and rice is not a combination I need to clean up after 😝

Be glad that they don't like rice. I serve it fairly often and hate myself every time that I do-they make such a mess when eating it! Mine love Spanish rice, cheesy brown rice, and rice as a bed to nearly anything. They are not fans of wild rice like I am, though.

CalCare I actually like that same w.w. organic rotini pasta. It's not as grainy as other ww ones are. Just fyi, for anyone if this helps, Ralph's is the same as Kroger's. We have Ralph's here in CA.

My favorites are:

As a side dish
Beefy wild rice hotdish
Wild rice meatballs
Cheesy wild rice soup


You can add wild rice to pretty much anything you want....burgers, meatloaf, brats, hotdishes, salads...


I could eat it plain...it's just so yummy!!

I've heard of Kroger but never seen one.

My family (and daycare) have always used the Barilla brand whole wheat pastas. I like them and none of the kids have ever complained so thank goodness! Of course, I don't know the last time I served pasta here... we eat ALOT of wild rice as it's super prevalant in my neck of the woods.

My kids prefer rotini for WW pasta. They like the WW spaghetti, too. I use Barilla.
