The secret about this tomato sauce is that it's packed with veggies but cooked in a way that they're hidden (it all just looks like tomato sauce!). It's used to coat the cavatappi pasta and comes with grated Parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top. On the side is shaved carrots and raisins salad sprinkled with crunchy sunflower seeds. Our chefs create tempting, balanced kids’ meals with a focus on whole grains, lean proteins, and always lots of vegetables. We aim to give you choices you’ll feel good about and kids will love.

Fairly good little meal. The carrot-raisin salad ddn't quite go with the pasta.

My kid eats this. Yay!

Can you please go back to your old kids secret weapon recipe? It was better. My kids won't eat this new recipe. It's not as good and ends up being wasted.

My daughter loves this. Only complaint is it is a little small even for a kid size meal.

I assume it's tasty, my 2 year old ate the entire thing. But I wish the portion was much larger.

Wish it had been a larger portion

The pasta and sauce and cheese are good. The salad does not go with the pasta. By itself, I like it. But it just doesn't go well with this dish.

The side salad had gone bad and tasted rotten and fermented. We literally spat it out.

We've had this before, usually the portion was ample for our 10 year old. Today, we opened it, and it looked like it was about half of what they normally give. He ate that in 5 bites, and was left needing "second dinner".

Munchery must review its methods for cooking Kid's Meals pastas. This dishes, along w/ the Mac 'n Cheese CHRONICALLY arrives rancid. This order again arrived with the pasta noodles smelling foul. I have provided feedback TWICE already on this issue.

Too small

Carrot-raisin salad was good but it didn't go with the meal. Rest of the meal was tasty.
5 Stars
My daughter loved this meal!

Today's order came with only a tiny amount of pasta. We weighted it and it was less than 4oz. Not even enough to feed a 3 year old. Need better quality control!
1 Stars
Very small portion. Might satisfy a two year old but my 12 year old was still hungry and it wasn't anything tasty or special.
4 Stars
Nice little meal. Salad could use a tasty dressing or mayo or ???
5 Stars
Nice little, tasty meal.

THANK YOU! For remembering that kids can be picky. Having the sauce on the side gave my son (aka the picky one) a CHOICE. He chose to dip his pasta in the sauce. He loved it! Asked to order it again. Win win for all!
3 Stars
My son loved the pasta and wanted more. The carrot salad was flavorless to him and myself.
1 Stars
The portion was skimpy - just 3 ounces of pasta (we weighed it). Even for a kid's meal, this was poor value for money.
3 Stars
Portion small and weird side salad is inedible to children.
2 Stars
Kids did not like the sauce. Maybe a choice of marinara or pesto would work better
4 Stars
Pretty good.
2 Stars
Understand this is a kid's meal but this dish is consistently unreasonably TINY in serving size. Wheels are the size of one's pinky nail -fair- but the amount? I can easily count the number of wheels per delivery (~20). Not worth the $ for the size.
2 Stars
My just turned 2yo finishes the pasta and always wants more. There is hardly any pasta in there. She is not a big eater at all either!
3 Stars
Just need a little more for older kids.
3 Stars
Kids did not like the carrot salad side, maybe a more simple veggie would be better
3 Stars
Smallest kids meal I've ordered.
5 Stars
My son loved it, and he's very picky.
3 Stars
Kids thought it was just ok. They wouldn't eat the Side of carrot salad and I didn't think it was very good either.
4 Stars
In one, the container of Parmesan was open, spilled, and mixed in with pasta.
1 Stars
This portion was incredibly small & disappointing compared to the portion of the other kids meal we received.
5 Stars
My 11 year old ate this up quickly. And she's the PICKIEST eater. I hope this is on the menu often...
3 Stars
My almost two year old hardly eats but loves this meal!! Sadly she always asks for more and there's never enough! And she is not a big eater so that tells me the portion size is really small!

Kids said it was their favorite

One of my little one's favorites!

Why did this change? The portion is much smaller and the quality is lower than it used to be. Bring back the old mothers secret helper!

Very little pasta and a tasteless side. We order often from Munchery but will take this off the list.
